The Ruger Precision Rifle is a bolt-action, magazine fed, repeating rifle. The assembly of the Ruger Precision Rifle is designed to produce a direct recoil path through the upper receiver into the butt stock, without the use of traditional bedding. Materials used in the Ruger Precision Rifle are steel and aircraft grade aluminum. Styling and features of the rifle have been carefully crafted to accommodate Ruger and other aftermarket accessories designed for use on modern sporting-type rifles.
Notable features of the Ruger Precision Rifle include: an externally adjustable trigger; a magazine latching system that accepts two different magazine types: (1) M110/SR25/DPMS/Magpul, and (2) AICS; a folding stock with adjustment for length of pull and comb height; and a 20 MOA canted scope base. The medium-contour (.75" at the muzzle) barrel features a Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake to effectively reduce recoil while minimizing noise and blast to the sides of the shooter. A 15" aluminum free-float handguard is hard-coat anodized aluminum and features Magpul M-LOK slots on all four sides for improved scope clearance for long-range scopes and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. The oversized bolt handle for positive bolt manipulation, with a 5/16"-24 thread pattern for easy replacement. Bolt disassembly tool is stored in the Ruger Precision Rifle Billet Aluminum Bolt Shroud for easy striker channel cleaning.
