Each XPR Renegade Long Range SR ships with a Grayboe Renegade stock, which is purpose built for precision shooting and features a wide, flat fore-end that provides a pronounced and level surface for shooting off of. Grayboe includes a near-vertical pistol grip to promote the operator’s ability to control the adjustable M.O.A. Trigger. A generous butt hook and sling mounts are provided here, too.
