U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the Ruger Precision Rimfire rifle. Bringing the big-gun experience to the rimfire world, the Ruger Precision Rimfire is a scaled-down version of the Ruger Precision Rifle and maintains the same ergonomics, trigger and manual of arms as the larger centerfire rifle. The Ruger Precision Rimfire is the ideal long-range shooting trainer and go-to rifle for your next rimfire match.

The Ruger Precision Rimfire features a molded, one-piece chassis and adjustable buttstock assembly manufactured from glass-filled nylon for strength, stiffness and stability, offering a solid foundation for accuracy each and every shot. The innovative Quick-Fit adjustable Precision Rimfire stock allows the rifle’s length of pull and comb height to be quickly and easily adjusted for proper fit over a wide range of shooter sizes, outerwear and shooting positions. Indicating marks molded into the chassis help you quickly return to a previous position.

To make the .22 LR chambering feel more like 6.5 Creedmoor, Ruger engineers designed the Big-Gun adjustable bolt throw technology. By simply removing a spring clip, shooters can change from a rimfire 1-1/2” bolt throw to a short-action centerfire 3” bolt throw, reducing the chance of short-stroking the bolt in competition. Identical to the Ruger Precision Rifle, the oversized bolt handle makes for positive bolt manipulation.

The rifle’s 18” target barrel is cold hammer-forged from 4140 alloy steel to create ultra-precise rifling for excellent accuracy. The ½”-28 thread pattern allows for easy pairing with the Silent-SR suppressor or other muzzle devices. The 15” hard black anodized aluminum, free-float handguard features Magpul M-LOK slots on all four sides for improved scope clearance and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories.

The popular Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger has a pull weight range of 2.25 to 5.0 pounds; the adjusting wrench is conveniently stored in a buttstock compartment on the rifle. Ruger’s own AR-pattern pistol grip and safety selector allow for maximum control and access to the 45 degree, reversible safety selector.

The Precision Rimfire ships with one, 15-round BX-15 magazine or two, 10-round BX-1 magazines. For increased long-range elevation capabilities, the rifle is topped with a 30 MOA Picatinny scope base.

    1. As of this day, I believe there’s only been 1,000 RPRRs shipped to distributors. There’s already a FaceBook Group devoted to the rifle that includes several 50 and 100 yard targets that are quite impressive, i.e., ragged one hole groups with 5 and 10 round groups. There’s also a target with a three round 425 yard group. The proof of this pudding is how the rifle performs in your hands. I believe it’s got real potential and I’ve got faith in Ruger based on my 6.5CM RPR.

      The low street price is $399 from several of the big houses. Not a high price to pay when compared to other precision 22LRs like hot rod 10/22, Anschutz or CZ. Time will tell about this entry based on user reports.

      I do believe Ruger will expand the line to the 22 Mag, when is your guess!

    2. OK, it has some cosmetic bells and whistles, but how accurate is this factory “precision” rimfire rifle? Unless it will consistently do sub quarter inch groups at 50 yards with good ammo (the way my custom 10/22 will) it doesn’t merit the “precision” label.
