Ruger Precision Rifle Gen 2 .308
We weren’t sure many people would want a bolt-action AR15/AR10 when Ruger released the Precision Rifle.
Sometimes, just sometimes, we’re wrong…
Ruger Precision Rifle Perfect For Hunting
The Ruger Precision Rifle has been a smash hit. It works for hunters, long range target shooters and it’s also a long distance sniper rifle for those that can’t really afford one.
This could be the entry-level weapon for assassins of the future.
They can also swing the butt round and turn this into a long-barrel pistol if things go sideways.
Most of us will never use that feature, except for bagging and carrying the 10.7lb weapon.
Aside from that, it’s really a much cheaper version of the Ritter & Stark MTR SX1 we featured recently.
Target Shooters Love This Gun
The SX-1 is the best of the best when it comes to lightweight sniper rifles. But this is a version for the masses.
It has rave reviews on almost every forum and skilled shooters are taking on targets from a mile away.
How much cheaper?
Well the Ritter & Stark is a $7,699.99 weapon, this one is on sale at Rainier Arms for just $1,599.99 right now.
That really is quite the saving.
This is a Budget Ritter & Stark
Now the SX1 will still be the go-to weapon for private security and even special forces that have the budget and want the flexibility.
But if you just want a stellar hunting weapon or target shooter that can handle everything from long moon shots, three-pointers plus, to close-up firing, then the Ruger Precision Rifle could be all the gun you actually need.
It doesn’t quite have the tolerances of the SX1. It’s a mass market weapon and that’s like comparing a showroom Ford to a NASCAR racer.
The cost savings showing the finish on the skeletal buttstock. The matte black finish isn’t totally uniform wither.
But it’s nothing we couldn’t live with.
What Ammo Does the Ruger Precision Rifle Suit Best?
You can get this Creedmore 6.5 version with a 24 inch barrel, or a 20 inch version that takes .308 ammo. Either way, you want the Gen 2 version of this cut-price classic.
You get a hybrid muzzle brake to reduce recoil and noise and the gun is tuned to focus the recoil on the buttstock, which should help your accuracy.
It’s compatible with a number of different magazines from the likes of Magpul and AICS. It comes with two 10-round mags, but you can fit something heavier duty if you don’t want to spend time reloading.
That oversized bolt makes it easy to chamber the next round, even if you’re wearing gloves, and the Picatinny Rails give you all the space in the world to mount your favorite optics.
It’s a collection of rifles in one devastating package and we know the world is in love with the Ruger Precision Rifle.
So if you’re a hunter and you like to take the long range shots, then get this sniper rifle dressed as a hunting rifle. Treat yourself to a Ruger Precision Rifle. It’s an awful lot of gun for not so much money.
