Ruger just announced an update to its Custom Shop offering of rifles. The Ruger Custom Shop Precision Rifle now comes in 6.5 Creedmoor, bringing yet another high-end, competition-ready bolt gun to shooters.
Ruger Custom Shop Precision Rifle Update
This comes via a collaboration with world champion shooter and Team Ruger Captain Doug Koenig. It includes a TriggerTech Trigger incorporating Frictionless Release Technology. The system provides a crisp break, minimized overtravel and a short reset, according to Ruger. A unique barrier stop resides along the front of the magazine well. It should provide ample purchase when driving the gun into a barrier during competitions. Inside, the rifle updates with improved firing pin tip geometry, enhancing functional across a wide variety of primers, according to Ruger.
The rifle sports a custom, heavy-contour (.850″ at muzzle), accurate free-floated barrel. The cold hammer-forged barrel comes from chrome-moly stainless steel, cut with 5R rifling. Ruger air gauges for minimum bore and groove dimensions. Meanwhile, a centralized chamber delivers accuracy and longevity, according to Ruger. The barrel comes with a 1:7.5″ twist, 5/8″-24 threaded muzzle and APA Muzzle Brake.
The rifle utilizes M-LOK slots on the handguard for accessory attachment. It also features a flat bottom for stability in shooting. An AR-style grip and buttstock add to the modularity of the design. Select parts feature a Cerakote finish, while the gun comes with two Magpul PMAG magazines.
The Custom Shop Precision rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor retails for $2,499. For even more info, please visit ruger.com.
