Rimfire expert 22Plinkster looks at the scaled-down version of the long-range Ruger Precision Rifle, which is chambered in .22LR but feels more like a long-range bolt-gun.
The Ruger Precision Rimfire‘s Quick-Fit stock is adjustable for both length of pull and comb height while a bolt throw adjustment on the oversized replaceable bolt handle enables the user to select either a 1.5-inch throw for rimfire or a three-inch throw to mimic a short-action centerfire for those using the smaller caliber gun for economical practise or training. The threaded 18-inch cold hammer-forged 4140 barrel is shrouded by a free-floated handguard with multiple M-LOK slots for accessories and a bipod while a Picatinny scope base on the receiver allows for optics.
The rifle uses a replaceable AR-pattern pistol grip and incorporates Ruger’s Marksman trigger, which is adjustable from 2.25 to five pounds. Overall weight is 6.8-pounds while the length is just over 35-inches using the shortest length of pull on the stock.
And it sure does look good and print well on target with the Leupold glass in the above video by ‘Plink.
For another look, here is Mark Gurney, of Ruger Firearms, who talked to us on the accurate little rimfire at SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas last month.
