Default The new Ruger Precision Rimfire

...Check this out...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_MB648eW_s

...My son put one of these new Ruger Precision Rimfires on pre-order earlier today. When it arrives, I'll do a review and comparison to my Savage FV-SR. I'm a bit of a rimfire fanatic and think it's awesome that I'll be able to get my hands on the new Ruger without having to cough up the cash for my own. This is my Savage...

Pretty cool OP. Price is attractive.

Bolt-action to cycle sub-sonic rounds and takes 10/22 mags.

I really like the stock, rail hand guard and pistol grip.

Hopefully factory trigger is crisp and light.

Can't wait to check one of these out. Looks like fun. Reminds me of that great Magpul advertising video for their X-22 stock (for 10/22s) where they say "Your fun gun just got serious."

Can someone explain to me the purpose of the feature that apparently allows one to change the bolt throw? I am guessing the idea is that if you are mainly a 22 shooter, just leave it set for the shorter throw customarily found on a 22LR. But if you are using this as a training gun, or you also frequently shoot centerfire bolt rifles, then set it to the longer throw so the feel/action of this 22 will be more comparable to your centerfire rifle. Is that it?

Is there still a 10 round limit for a rim fire bolt action rifle?

Yes, rimfire tube magazines are the only exemption that I know of.

I can't see it myself - why not just get a precision 10/22?

Sorry, I own a bunch of Rugers, but this one to me is just uglier than a HiPoint!

Why didn't Ruger just come out with a 77/22 with a bull barrel and an oversize bolt knob and call it a day?

A Lever action .357, one of the best styles I've felt in hand. So narrow! I don't know what brand it was. It was in a rack full of lever actions. It was like putting on a broken in baseball glove. The size and fit so natural. Something I have yet to experience with other rifles. Maybe it was the weight balance. I've always felt a bit awkward with standard ARs and shotguns. Like me fitting to the rifle, vs the rifle fitting me.

Default Ruger RPR in Rimfire

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/201...rimfire-rifle/

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...ision-rimfire/

now you can practice shooting your RPR at a much more affordable cost before you start shooting those 6.5C ammo.

Edit: Bah, guess i was wrong, and there was a thread on this already.

thanks for merging mods.

bolt action rifles are like on the low end of the firearm restriction list for CA politicians.

For me it is all about the accuracy out of the box, without massive upgrades. Probable similar to the newish Ruger rimfire bolt gun.

That's one of the main reasons to buy it. A big F U to the state overlords is always in order.

Bought one a few days ago, sitting in DROS hell now. Have their 6.5 and their 5.56 as well. Was told by Ruger rep I should have one of the first to sold here in Mexifornia.

As with my other two the optics-bipods-rings will cost twice the price of the rifle.

Edit: According to Ruger website, there are two model 8400 and 8401. The 8400 comes with 15 rd BX15 magazine, and the 8401 model comes with two 10 rd BX10 magazines , the web site also indicates that the rifle will take the 10/22 magazines.
it sounds liked buy buy buy to me , oops, I meant pre-pre-pre-order.
(darn it, the Hennry Golden boy has to wait for another year ).
