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.
