Ruger’s New Custom Shop Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor

Ruger introduced its very modern Precision Rifle line in 2015 to provide a highly-accurized offering with a big name for those interested in reaching out to 1K yards and beyond.

Bolt guns with as much AR interchangeability as possible– such as grips and a stock hinge that accepts AR buffer tubes and thus AR stocks– and using free-floating AR style handguards complete with M-LOK slots, they are very modern and have been made in popular calibers for both medium range (.243 Win. and 5.56 NATO, both since discontinued) and long-range work with the latter including .308 Win., 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .300 Win. Mag., .338 Lapua Mag., .300 PRC, and 6.5 PRC.

Although Ruger currently offers an $1,800 variant of the Precision Rifle in 6.5CM, complete with a 24-inch barrel, for those who want a nice semi-custom version of the same gun including a 26-inch heavy-contour barrel, a Trigger Tech trigger pack rather than the Marksman series trigger, and a bunch of minor tweaks.

Most notable of the latter is a red barrier stop installed on the front of the magazine well, supposedly to enhance the shooter’s positional support during competition by providing a stable and repeatable shooting position.

Cost for these extras? The MSRP on the new Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle is $2,499.
