Ruger dials in precision rifles big and small at SHOT Show (VIDEOS)

Ruger showed up in Las Vegas with precision rifles in both rimfire and magnum calibers this week, offering something for those looking to knock out the X at ranges near and far.

The new M77 Hawkeye Long-Range Target in .300 WM features a distinctive two-tone speckled stock with incorporated comb and pull-length adjustments and a 24-inch cold hammer-forged 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel with 5R rifling that ends in a threaded muzzle and the same hybrid brake as seen on the Ruger Precision Rifle. A 20 MOA Picatinny rail on mounts machined directly to the receiver provides a foundation for serious optics while the one-piece stainless bolt works in tandem with a Mauser-style controlled round feed extractor for positive extraction.

MSRP is $1,279.

The .22LR Ruger Precision Rimfire‘s Quick-Fit stock is adjustable for both length of pull and comb height while a bolt throw adjustment on the oversized replaceable bolt handle enables the user to select either a 1.5-inch throw for rimfire or a 3-inch throw to mimic a short-action centerfire for those using the smaller caliber gun for economical practise or training. The threaded 18-inch cold hammer-forged 4140 barrel is shrouded by a free-floated handguard with multiple M-LOK slots for accessories and a bipod while a Picatinny scope base on the receiver allows for optics.

The rifle uses a replaceable AR-pattern pistol grip and incorporates Ruger’s Marksman trigger, which is adjustable from 2.25 to five pounds. Overall weight is 6.8-pounds while the length is just over 35-inches using the shortest length of pull on the stock.

The rifle accepts 10/22 magazines and ships with a single 15-round BX-15 short banana or two 10-rounders if needed. MSRP is $529.
