Ruger now has a rimfire understudy to its trendsetting center-fire Precision Rifle. Just like its big brother, the Precision Rimfire is based on its counterpart American bolt-action receiver, but it differs by way of a chassis-style stock molded of glass-filled Nylon. The rifle’s buttstock features quick-change adjustments for length of pull and comb height, and the 15" free-float aluminum handguard features M-LOK slots on multiple sides for the mounting of accessories. The cold-hammer-forged 18" barrel has a threaded muzzle and can be replaced easily using AR-type wrenches. Other features that make the Rimfire Precision perfect for long-range rimfire competition or PRS practice include: a receiver-mounted scope rail with a 30-m.o.a. elevation cant; an oversize bolt handle; bolt travel that can be changed from a rimfire-like 1½" to a center-fire-like 3"; and, of course, compatibility with the full range of rotary 10/22 magazines. ruger.com
