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.
