Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has announced an all-new Predator version of its popular, 100 percent American-made Ruger American Rifle. The Ruger American Rifle Predator model will include all the features of the original Ruger American Rifle, plus a moss green stock, a heavier tapered, threaded barrel and a factory installed one-piece aluminum scope rail.

The new predator model will be available in six calibers: .223 Rem (featuring a 1:8 Twist), .204 Ruger, .22-250 Rem., .243 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win.

"The Ruger American Rifle is a proven performer, delivering outstanding accuracy right out of the box. This new Predator model offers a slightly heavier barrel and other features that our Ruger customers requested," said Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Killoy.

The Predator retains the Ruger American Rifle's three-lug, 70 degree bolt that provides ample scope clearance. The bolt also utilizes a full diameter body and dual cocking cams for smooth, easy cycling from the shoulder. The reliable four-round (five-round for .223 Rem. and .204 Ruger) rotary magazine fits flush with the stock and offers the smooth feed that has become the hallmark of Ruger rotary magazines.

The threaded barrels (1/2-28 threads on .223 Rem, .204 Ruger and .22-250 Rem. models, and 5/8-24 on all other calibers) allow fitment of a variety of muzzle accessories, including sound suppressors.

All version of the predator model will ship with an MSRP of $489.
