Ruger Introduces Custom Shop Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to introduce the Ruger Precision® Rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor as the newest addition to the Ruger Custom Shop® line of firearms. Designed in collaboration with Team Ruger Captain Doug Koenig, this new model builds upon the already competitive Ruger Precision Rifle to deliver a factory-built firearm specifically designed for long-range competition.
The new Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle features a factory-installed TriggerTech Trigger with Frictionless Release Technology™ providing an exceptionally 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 during competition by providing a stable and repeatable shooting position. Internally, the rifle boasts an 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″ 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″ twist rate, 5/8″-24 threaded muzzle and 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″ 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.
The value proposition of the Ruger Custom Shop Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor is without peer. With top-tier accuracy, adjustable ergonomics and the rugged reliability and affordability for which Ruger is famous, this new offering provides a long-range, competition-ready rifle directly from the Ruger factory.
