USA – -( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly introduces magnum models of the Ruger Precision® Rimfire rifle and a new BX-15® Magnum magazine. Faster, flatter and with high-performing bullets, .17 HMR and .22 WMR cartridges expand the capabilities of the Ruger Precision Rimfire platform. Like its .22 LR predecessor, these new magnum offerings maintain the same ergonomics, trigger and manual of arms as the larger centerfire Ruger Precision Rifle.

The Ruger Precision Rimfire’s molded, one-piece chassis and adjustable buttstock assembly are manufactured from strong glass-filled nylon, offering a solid foundation for accuracy. The innovative Quick-Fit 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.

The 18″ cold hammer-forged target barrel features ultra-precise rifling for excellent accuracy and a 1/2″-28 muzzle thread pattern for easy pairing with muzzle devices, including the Ruger® Silent-SR®. The 15″ free-float handguard with Magpul® M-LOK® slots provides generous scope clearance and easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. Additionally, Big-Gun bolt throw adjustment technology allows shooters to experience the long bolt throw of a centerfire cartridge, like 6.5 Creedmoor, improving the Ruger Precision Rimfire’s capabilities as a training rifle.

The popular Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger can be externally adjusted from 2.25 to 5 pounds with the adjusting wrench that 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 rifle is topped with a 0 MOA Picatinny scope base and ships with one, 15-round BX-15 Magnum magazine or one, 9-round JMX-1 rotary magazine.

The new, 15-round BX-15 Magnum magazine incorporates technologies that have made the .22 LR BX-15 and BX-25® magazines famous and also features the same feed lip geometry that has proven reliable in the 9-round, JMX-1 rotary magazine. The BX-15 Magnum is a natural pairing for the new Ruger Precision Rimfire in magnum calibers. It is also compatible with Ruger 77/17®, Ruger 77/22® and Ruger American® Rimfire rifles chambered in .17 HMR and .22 WMR. The stainless steel feed lips and “constant force” spring combine with a high-lubricity, polyacetal, anti-tilt follower and durable, glass-filled nylon magazine body to make the BX-15 magazine rugged, reliable and easy to clean.

I see this is an old blog, but I was just now able to find one in 22 WMR. Cabela’s prices was $449.99 but free to me since I had their credit card rewards points. I have not fired at long range, only sighted it in at 25 yards in a 30 mph wind. I had trouble seeing hits in the black, so I fired 10 rounds at a nail head in the target frame. ALL 10 rounds went into about 5/16 inch. I will be interested to see what it does at distance on a still day. I shoot… Read more »


what the hell is wrong with you people hater and godless


U would think ruger could make the bx-25 or more bx-15 ! Ruger make wmr or hmr 10/17 hmr, 10/22 wmr / mag , 77/17 hmr 77/22wmr / mag, ruger american ,ruger american, ruger precision, all these in the same cal. All these models ! But can supply a magazine the will only hold 9 rds ! That somewhat takes a little more effort to get out of the rifle ! More BX-15 a lot easier to release from the rifle ! BX-25 magazine in wmr and hmr would b awesome !


Just picked up mine on sale at RuralKing here in Florida for $339. Just trying to find a good deal on an extra mag, another 15 rnd and Ill be fine.

I have the 77/17 and the Maginum Research 22 maginum 10/22 frame will the BX15 maginum magazine fit both. If so where can I purchase them.


Leave it to Ruger to screw its customers again like with the mag’s on their Mini 14. Buy their mag’s or pray you can find a trusted knock off after market mag. They charge a small fortune for their mag’s. Profit, Profit, Profit.


You know with a little bit of profit a company might can stay In business!!! You must be a Democrat!!

Chris Campbell

Excellent point


Cost? $529 for all the rimfire models. But you must choose either the 15 rd or 9 rd mag version. You can’t apparently by one and the. Use the other mags. No adapter shown!


Ruger screws customers again like with their Mini 14 mag’s. Buy their super high priced mag or be forced to buy questionable knock off mag’s. Why can’t they use a typical AR mag like other gun makers do?


Ar mags in .22? They are using the same mags that make the 10/22 one of the best .22 rifles on the market. And how do you figure Ruger screws people with there mags? They include 1 or 2 with their guns. The ruger percision is one of the least expensive and most versatile. Look up an Accuracy International magazine and then tell me how Ruger gouges on mags

Wild Bill

@Toolbx, Yeah, check out what other high end rifle manufacturers charge for an extra magazine, Cooper for instance.

I don’t have a problem with getting two magazines ,problem is I just purchased a new Rimfire Magnum in a 17 HMR it only comes with one can’t even get another one yet.

Rich DePatta

Is the 15 round CA compliant?



Don Perry

What do you mean by an adapter? They offer the 9 round mag for people in states that don’t allow 15 round mags.
The 15 mag versions will be sold in states with no law against high capacity magazines. I have a 22 version and got it for $400.00. Who pays full retail for a new gun??


Trying to keep my local gun store in business.. They discount them for me but not too much..

Michael Goettsch

Already being sold online by a major retailer for $419.99.
And you can use either mag they just provide a choice as some states have magazine limits.
