Video: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle Review

posted on June 9, 2017
Jeff Cooper conceptualized the Scout rifle, and he likely would have appreciated the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle for exactly what it is—a well-executed, reasonably affordable scout rifle from a major U.S. factory gunmaker. The .308-chambered Ruger Gunsite Scout, introduced in 2010, has also earned a place among scout rifle aficionados and converts alike. The Scout was later introduced in 5.56 x 45 mm NATO (.223 Rem.) chambering. Watch this "Rifleman Review" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV to learn more.
