Building upon the company’s popular Ridgeline series, the Ridgeline Scout is a purpose-built, bolt-action rifle chassis that combines all the best features of the Ridgeline into a new compact scout rifle. Specialized features include a Black-Nitride-coated action, 0-MOA optic rail, barricade stop, a 10-round AICS drop-box magazine, and a flat-shoe TriggerTech trigger, all on a tan and black carbon-fiber composite Sporter stock.

Weighing just 5.9 pounds, the Ridgeline Scout is available in four chamberings, all with a 16-inch muzzle-threaded barrel creating an ideal suppressor host.

“We are excited to add the new Ridgeline Scout rifle to the Ridgeline series. The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the Ridgeline in a shorter, more compact, system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing for Christensen Arms. “This Ridgeline Scout has the same accuracy potential and dependability as our field-proven Ridgeline rifles, as they share many of the same features, technology and components.”
