MAIN Custom Shop Precision Rifle

Designed in collaboration with Team Ruger Captain Doug Koenig, the Ruger Custom Shop Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor builds upon the Ruger Precision Rifle to deliver a factory-built firearm specifically designed for longer ranges.

The new Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle features a factory-installed TriggerTech Trigger with Frictionless Release Technology, providing crisp break, minimized overtravel and an extremely short and tactile reset. A unique barrier stop is installed on the front of the magazine well to enhance the shooter's positional support when shooting from awkward spots, by providing a stable and repeatable shooting position. Internally, the rifle boasts improved firing-pin tip geometry that enhances functionality with a wide variety of primers, while allowing for decreased force necessary to manipulate the bolt.

This rifle's custom, heavy-contour (.850-inches at the muzzle), highly accurate free-floated barrel is cold-hammer-forged from chrome-moly stainless steel, and features 5R rifling for minimum bullet upset. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber deliver outstanding accuracy, longevity and ease of cleaning. The barrel features a 1:7.5-inch twist rate, a 5/8-24 TPI threaded muzzle and an APA Muzzle Brake (.264 bore) to effectively reduce recoil aiding shot observation for quick follow-up.

Encompassing the stainless steel barrel is a hard-coat anodized aluminum, free-float handguard that features M-Lok slots on all four sides for improved clearance for long-range scopes, and easy mounting of M-Lok-compatible rails and accessories. The handguard is flat-bottomed for stability and incorporates an integral bottom 1.50-inch dovetail, making the gun compatible with RRS S.O.A.R. and similar QD systems.

With its ability to accept AR-style grips and buttstocks, the rifle incorporates a Magpul MOE K2+ grip to provide a more vertical grip angle in a full-sized design. Select parts of the rifle are finished with a durable Cerakote for improved wear resistance. This model ships with two Magpul PMAG magazines and a Sorbothane® cheek pad that provides a comfortable and stable cheek-to-stock weld for quick target acquisition.
