NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger Precision Rifle

by
posted on November 21, 2015
Ruger designed its Precision Rifle as a price-friendly alternative to most long-range precision rifles on the market, which can typically run $3,000 or more. At about half the price, Ruger didn't sacrifice in standout features that really set this rifle apart from the crowd, including its compatibility with both rear- and side-latching magazines, and its in-line recoil path and the modularity that allows all the gun’s furniture to be replaced with most other AR-style components.

Offering consistent sub-MOA accuracy and endless customization options, the Precision Rifle is Ruger’s invitation to cost-conscious gun buyers to enter the exciting world of long-range shooting. Watch the video above hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young to learn more and see the gun in use on the range.
