Ruger has announced magnum models of its Ruger Precision Rimfire rifle, as well as a new BX-15 Magnum magazine. Like its .22 LR predecessor, the .17 HMR and .22 WMR magnum offerings maintain the same ergonomics, trigger and manual of arms as the larger center-fire Ruger Precision Rifle.



The Ruger Precision Rimfire's molded, one-piece chassis and adjustable buttstock assembly are manufactured from strong glass-filled nylon. The Quick-Fit Precision Rimfire stock allows the rifle's length of pull and comb height to be quickly and easily adjusted for proper fit over a wide range of shooter sizes, outerwear and shooting positions.

The 18" cold hammer-forged target barrel features ultra-precise rifling and a 1/2"-28 muzzle thread pattern for easy pairing with muzzle devices, including the Ruger Silent-SR. The 15" free-float handguard with Magpul M-LOK slots provides generous scope clearance and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. Additionally, Big-Gun bolt throw adjustment technology allows shooters to experience the long bolt throw of a center-fire cartridge, like 6.5 Creedmoor, improving the Ruger Precision Rimfire's capabilities as a training rifle.

The Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger can be externally adjusted from 2.25 to 5 lbs. with the adjusting wrench that is conveniently stored in a buttstock compartment on the rifle. Ruger's own AR-pattern pistol grip and safety selector allow for maximum control and access to the 45-degree, reversible safety selector. The rifle is topped with a 0 MOA Picatinny scope base and ships with one, 15-round BX-15 Magnum magazine or one, 9-round JMX-1 rotary magazine.

The new, 15-round BX-15 Magnum magazine incorporates technologies that have made the .22 LR BX-15 and BX-25 magazines famous and also features the same feed lip geometry that has proven reliable in the 9-round, JMX-1 rotary magazine. The BX-15 Magnum is a natural pairing for the new Ruger Precision Rimfire in magnum calibers. It is also compatible with Ruger 77/17, Ruger 77/22 and Ruger American Rimfire rifles chambered in .17 HMR and .22 WMR. The stainless steel feed lips and "constant force" spring combine with a high-lubricity, polyacetal, anti-tilt follower and durable, glass-filled nylon magazine body to make the BX-15 magazine rugged, reliable and easy to clean.
