Ruger Unveils Custom Shop Sniper Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to introduce the Ruger Precision® rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor as the latest addition to the Ruger Custom Shop® line of firearms. Designed in collaboration with Ruger team captain Doug Koenig, this new model builds on the already competitive Ruger Precision Rifle to deliver a factory-built firearm designed specifically for long-range competition.

The new Custom Shop Ruger Precision Rifle features a factory-installed TriggerTech trigger with Frictionless Release Technology™, which provides an exceptionally crisp break, minimized overtravel, and an extremely short, tactile reset. A unique barrier stop is installed on the front of the magazine to enhance shooter positional support during competition by providing a stable and repeatable shooting position. Internally, the rifle features an improved firing pin tip geometry that improves functionality with a wide variety of primers while allowing the force required to manipulate the bolt to be decreased.

The highly accurate, contour-heavy free-float barrel (.850″ at the muzzle) of this rifle is cold-hammer-forged from chrome-moly stainless steel and features 5R rifling for minimal bullet alteration. Minimal hole and slot dimensions (measured by air for process control) and a centralized chamber provide outstanding accuracy, longevity, and ease of cleaning. The barrel features a 1:7.5″ twist ratio, 5/8″-24 threaded muzzle and APA (.264 caliber) muzzle brake to effectively reduce recoil, aiding shot sighting for follow-up Quick.

The stainless steel barrel is surrounded by a free-floating, hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard that features M-LOK® slots on all four sides to improve clearance for long-range scopes and ease the mounting of M-compatible rails and accessories. -LOK. The handguard is flat bottomed for stability and incorporates an integral 1.50″ dovetail on the bottom, making the pistol compatible with RRS SOAR and similar QD systems.
