NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger Precision Rimfire Rifle

Marksmanship training can get costly, and that is why Ruger developed and brought to market its Precision Rimfire—a full-featured bolt-action rifle modeled after its center-fire Precision Rifle. The Ruger Precision Rimfire utilizes an 18”, cold-hammer-forged steel, target barrel mounted to the American Rimfire bolt-action receiver. This barreled action is set within a polymer chassis that contains an adjustable stock that allows shooters to fine-tune both the rifle’s length of pull and comb height. Rimfire rifles are a hot topic today, with leagues and matches popping up all across the country that push these little lead chuckers to once-unheard-of distances. Coincidentally, the Precision Rimfire includes a 30 m.o.a. optic rail to assist with sighting at these extended ranges. To learn more about the feature-rich Ruger Precision Rimfire, check out our NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz.
