In the world of craftsmanship, some collaborations stand out as beacons of innovation and creativity. Today, we are thrilled to lift the curtain on a project that encapsulates the very essence of this kind of collaboration. Picture this: a flawlessly designed and artfully crafted limited edition Ruger 10/22 USA Shooting 2024 Paris Olympics target rifle, blue and red laminate stock, with a special coin design adorning its grip. Intrigued? Let’s dive into the story behind this extraordinary creation.

At the heart of this collaboration lies TALO Distributors, a name synonymous with exclusivity and unparalleled quality in the realm of firearms. Established in 1965, TALO is renowned for its ability to make and distribute limited-edition firearms that cater to the most discerning collectors. They work by commissioning limited edition and exclusive firearms from top manufacturers and distributing them to stocking sporting goods dealers across the United States. From custom engravings to intricate embellishments, every TALO firearm is a testament to the enduring legacy of craftsmanship and desirability.

But what truly sets TALO apart is its unwavering commitment to excellence and collaboration. They understand that greatness is not achieved in isolation but through the synergy of like-minded partners. In every project, they seek out collaborators who share their vision for pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. This dedication to partnership and innovation is what sets TALO apart, allowing them to create exceptional works of art that transcend the ordinary.

Enter C. Forbes, Inc.— a beacon of expertise and tradition in the world of awards and recognition manufacturing. For 25 years, C. Forbes has been at the forefront of helping companies like TALO bring their visions to life. Specializing in the custom design of medallic products like challenge coins, medals, and badges, C. Forbes brings a wealth of experience and expertise to every project, ensuring that each collaboration we touch is a resounding success.

The special features of this limited edition .22 rifle include a patriotic blue and red laminate, ambidextrous stock, an 18” heavy, floating barrel, a Ruger Custom Shop muzzlebrake, and a feather-light BX trigger. Flip the rifle over and you’ll find our limited edition coin inlaid at the bottom of the pistol grip stock – only 2,024 of these pieces exist! (Well, 2,023 as far as we know… Vice President Sam Forbes, pictured below, had to add one to his personal collection.) If you wish to purchase one of these special rifles, visit your local dealer and ask them to order one while supplies last.

Together, TALO Distributors and C. Forbes, Inc. have embarked on a fun and commemorative journey for the upcoming Summer Games in Paris, France. The special medallion design adorning the grip of the Ruger 10/22 USA Shooting 2024 Olympic Competition rifle is a testament to this shared commitment towards innovation and craftsmanship.

Here’s what TALO had to say about the project,

“Great collaboration with our good friends at Ruger. This version is in support of the USA Shooting Team as they go for gold in the 2024 Olympics! A portion of each one sold goes directly to USA Shooting, who has been an amazing partner for TALO over the years! The 2024 version has many upgrades and came out beautifully from the factory. This 1 of 2,024 limited editions is beginning production in the fall of 2023 and will be produced leading up to the 2024 Olympics.”
