(5 out of 5) Great Rifle at a Great Price
by from Western, MA on

Great service as usual from SOSS. Fast shipping. Everything in great shape. I was going to put a Magpul stock on this, as reviews said stock is flimsy. No such thing.....stock seems very rigid and barrel was centered and free floating. 1 MOA out of the box, gonna be less with my reloads for sure.

(5 out of 5) Best value out there
by from Atlanta, GA on

Already an MOA rifle. Rotary mag is the weak point of the system, but now available in a configuration that takes AI-style mags. Also, now available, is an aftermarket stock from Magpul and a Timney trigger, if you really want to squeeze additional accuracy out of the CHF barrel. Factory trigger, however, is fine and very similar to the Savage accu-trigger. Factory stock is very light, but not great. Can be glass-bedded if you want to stiffen it up a bit.

(5 out of 5) the best rifle out there: 6.5 Creedmoor
by from Louisville, KY on

1/2 moa at 100 yds and 1 in, at 200 yds. Ruger is a great rifle.

(5 out of 5) More than you pay for
by from Santa Fe, NM on

I had read other peoples good reviews of this rifle so was expecting it to shoot well. I was not disappointed. Shoots MOA groups with factory ammo so I am expecting sub MOA with reloads, light weight, well made. And you can't beat the price.

Only con is as others have noted the foreend does move too much.
