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 1/2"-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. For increased long-range elevation capabilities, the rifle is topped with a 30 MOA Picatinny scope base.
Ordered on a Friday, arrived at local FFL the following Weds, but picked up Friday due to FFL not open earlier for drop off. No problem there. Took it to the range and borrowed a friends Weaver T-24 scope and ran some Lapua Center-X straight out of the box. One slightly larger hole at 25yds off a reasonably decent Caldwell front rest and rabbit ears back rest. Ran out of light to test at 50yds. So far, so good. $40 UTG bipod arrived couple days later, as well as Hogue grip and back to the range today after one cleaning and 100 rounds through it. This time put my Mueller 8-32 scope on it and had trouble grouping consistently with the Center-X at 50yds, which surprised me after the initial tests with it, so ran some SK Standard Plus, since that seems to shoot well in all my 22 rifles, especially my CZ 455 Varmint barreled rifle. This time had much more consistent groups at 50yds with best 5-shot at 5/16. Hoping that will tighten up with practice, as Im still learning to shoot. Next step is try it at 100yds. Only nit pick I have is the bolt is a little fidgety to insert and remove, but I suspect it will get better with use.
All in all, very pleased with this rifle. BTW, I tried CCI not bad, Federal Gold HV Match not as good, Aguila Super Extra HV so so and Federal Auto Match for the heck of it also so so. I'm happy that it shoots so well with SK because I wasn't looking forward to spending $11/box for Center-X to get it to shoot! The trigger has a little bit of creep but not bothersome. I have it adjusted down to the minimum. As triggers go, this is what should be on 10/22s from the factory. At the claimed 2 1/4 lbs pull, it's fine and breaks clean, so no complaints. I prefer shooting it with the bipod, as opposed to the Caldwell rest $150 model. I should also mention in closing I put a Vortex $30 offset scope level on the Mueller, which I think helps with the consistency, if for no other reason at 50yds, Im confident Im setting up pretty much the same every time. It should do its job when I go to 100yds or further. As for my copy, if I can get equivalent groups at 100yds, like at least 3/4 inch, I'd say Ruger has a hit with this rifle.
Wow!!!! I ordered the Ruger Prisicion Rimfire couple weeks ago and I just received mine with other pistols that I ordered together. I think I got all my firearms with cheapest from any other online stores. Customer service is amazing. Shipping is super fast! I can't be happier. I wish I knew this store before I bought all my previous firearms.Thank you!!!!!
I do have the Ruger Precision Rimfire 22LR Bolt-Action Rifle, and shooting Eley 38 gr ammunition. on 50 yard 10 shot at 1 hole. I am so happy with the Rimfire.
Just received tis rifle, and it fails to extract shells. Calling Rugers customer service is an exercise in futility.
I love everything about this little rifle, zero complaints. I've got close to $800 invested in a 10/22 to get it up to par. Buy this, throw some glass and a bipod on it and call it a day. If this is ever available in a 17 WSM I'll be buying one of those to and selling my current wsm. Love everything about it.
