Ruger has introduced 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 Ruger Precision Rifle to deliver a factory-built firearm specifically designed for long-range competition.

The Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle has a unique barrier stop 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. Additionally, it sports a factory installed TriggerTech Trigger. 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.

The rifle's custom, heavy-contour (.850" at the muzzle), free-floated barrel is cold hammer-forged from chrome-moly stainless steel and features 5R rifling. Minimum bore and groove dimensions (air-gauged for process control) and a centralized chamber aim to increase accuracy and reliability further. 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 each side. 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.

Able 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 Cerakote for improved wear resistance. This model ships with two Magpul PMAG magazines and a Sorbothane cheek pad.

Ruger is aiming for the Custom Shop Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor to be a precision rifle option that reaches a high level of quality for its price point.
