With its entry-level price and match-grade performance, the Ruger Precision Rifle looks to “distance” itself from the typical long-range rifle.


  • Medium contour (.75” at the muzzle) barrel features 5/8”-24 threads. Thread protector installed.
  • Barrels can be easily replaced by a competent gunsmith using AR-style wrenches and headspace gauges.
  • Highly accurate Ruger cold hammer-forged 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel with 5R Rifling at minimum bore and groove dimensions, minimum headspace and centralized chamber.
  • Equipped with a Samson Evolution Keymod Handguard. May be configured with any AR-style handguard.
  • Magazine well front is contoured for a positive grip for bracing against shooting supports.
  • 20 MOA Picatinny rail secured with four, #8-40 screws for increased long-range elevation capabilities.
  • ‘Lower’ magazine well halves are precision machined from aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum forging and are Type III hard coat anodized for maximum durability.
  • ‘Upper’ receiver and one-piece bolt are precision CNC-machined from pre-hardened 4140 chrome-moly steel to minimize distortion.
  • Multi-Magazine Interface functions interchangeably with M110, SR-25, DPMS and Magpul®-style magazines and AICS magazines (works with some M14 magazines); two 10-round Magpul® PMAG® magazines included.
  • Three-lug bolt with 70° throw features dual cocking cams and a smooth-running, full diameter bolt body.
  • Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger is externally adjustable with a pull weight range of 2.25 to 5.0 lbs.; wrench is stored in the bolt shroud.
  • Oversized bolt handle for positive bolt manipulation, with 5/16”-24 thread for easy replacement. Bolt disassembly tool is stored in the bolt shroud for easy striker channel cleaning.
  • Inline recoil path manages recoil directly from the rear of the receiver to the buttstock, not through a traditional bedding system, providing maximum accuracy potential.
  • Extended trigger-reach AR-style grip and 45° reversible safety selector. May be configured with any AR-style grip and selector.
  • Ruger® Precision MSR stock with QD sling attachment points features a bottom Picatinny rail and soft rubber buttpad. The left-folding stock hinge is attached to an AR-style buffer tube and accepts any AR-style stock.

Entry level pricing, expert level performance

Ruger's decision to offer a precision rifle with a street price of UNDER $1,000 that can shoot OVER 1,000 yards seems to be paying off.
