Ruger has just announced a new Custom Shop variant of the Ruger Precision Rifle chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor.
The Ruger Custom Shop line has expanded yet again, this time with the release of a Ruger Precision Rifle chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor. Developed with input from Team Ruger Captain and renowned competitive shooter Doug Koenig, the new custom Ruger Precision Rifle features some interesting changes intended to improve its performance, handling and function.
The first area of major improvement is the barrel, which is cold hammer-forged from chrome-moly stainless steel, free-floated and is a heavier contour than that of the standard model. Its muzzle is also threaded 5/8×24 and topped off with an effective APA muzzle brake. The M-LOK handguard housing the barrel is free-floated as well, and like the standard model, the custom version can accept any AR-style stock or pistol grip.
The trigger has also been improved on the Ruger Custom Shop model, now sporting an adjustable TriggerTech trigger with Frictionless Release Technology. The trigger is flat and features a red finish to match the controls and new barrier stop, giving the rifle a distinct Ruger Custom Shop look.
Speaking of the barrier stop, this is another new addition to the custom model. While the standard Ruger Precision Rifle has a contoured front magazine well to help better engage barriers, the custom version now has a protruding, textured barrier stop to accomplish the same thing. However, Ruger claims that the stop will provide better stability and repeatability. The only internal change to the custom RPR is a reprofiled firing pin which the company claims will function better with a wider variety of primers and also allow for easier manipulation of the bolt.
The Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor is available now and has an MSRP of $2,499.
