Ruger has reintroduced the Hawkeye Alaskan rifle chambered in three calibers: .375 Ruger, .338 Win. Mag. and .300 Win. Mag.. Based on the Ruger Guide Gun platform, the Hawkeye Alaskan rifle boasts stainless-steel construction and a Hogue OverMolded stock.

The black Hogue OverMolded synthetic stock is a unique feature to the Alaskan configuration of Hawkeye rifles. Hogue's patented OverMolding process is intended to provide a comfortable, non-slip, cobblestone texture that is soft, yet durable. The elastomer material used on Hogue stocks should not harden with age, and is claimed to be impervious to all oils and solvents used with firearms. The stock also comes equipped with standard sling swivel studs and a recoil pad.

The Hawkeye Alaskan weighs eight pounds, has an overall length of 42", a matte-stainless finish, and a windage-adjustable shallow V-notch rear sight paired with a large white-bead front. The rifle also features the Ruger Muzzle Brake System that includes a removable, radial-port muzzle brake to reduce felt recoil.

The rifle also features the LC6 trigger, a three-position safety and integral scope mounts for included scope rings. Like all Hawkeye rifles, these Alaskan models come equipped with a non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled-round feed extractor.
