Southport, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce the new Ruger SR-762, bringing the .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge to the popular SR-556 family of rifles.
The SR-762 offers the downrange authority of the .308 cartridge in a two-stage, piston-driven rifle that runs cooler and cleaner than traditional gas-driven AR-style rifles.
The SR-762 is an ideal rifle for those who appreciate the familiar and ergonomic AR-style platform. The .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge is perfect for hunting medium and most large-sized game and enhances the capability of the AR-style platform in defensive or tactical roles.
The SR-762 retains the features of the original SR-556 that make it a solid performer among AR-style rifles. The patent-pending, two-stage piston delivers a smooth power stroke to the one-piece bolt carrier, which reduces felt recoil and improves the rifle’s durability. The four-position gas regulator allows the shooter to tune the rifle to function reliably with a broad variety of ammunition and in varying environmental conditions.
A heavy contour, 16.12” chrome-lined, cold hammer forged barrel with a 1:10” twist features exterior fluting to minimize weight, yet provides outstanding accuracy. With the Ruger Lightweight Adaptable handguard in place, the SR-762™ weighs 8.6 pounds and balances comfortably.
Three 20-round MAGPUL PMAG magazines are provided with the SR-762. Folding backup iron sights, a Hogue Monogrip, Picatinny rail sections and rail covers add considerable value to the package, as does the six-position stock, sight adjustment tool, and a soft-sided carry case.
The Ruger SR-762 has a suggested retail price of $2,195.
