Ruger Precision Rifle Review
Part 2 - What's In The Box

Ruger Precision Rifle Review 

In this part of my review, I show what you get when you purchase Ruger's new Precision Rifle.  For those who prefer Youtube, this next video shows these details.

The Ruger Precision Rifle comes boxed as shown below.  Since the rifle is shipped with the stock folded, the box was nearly double the height of the standard box (not that it matters).

 

Figure 1

The end of the box had a sticker showing the critical information related to this rifle such as:

  • Model: 18005
  • Finish: Black Oxide/Hardcoat Anodize
  • Serial Number: Shown
  • Catalog Number: Precision Rifle
  • Caliber: 6.5 Creedmoor

Figure 2

When you open the box, the rifle and accessories come packed as shown below.

Figure 3

The box contained:

  • Ruger Precision Rifle
  • Bolt
  • Two 10-round PMAG Magazines
  • KeyMod Rail
  • KeyMod QD (Quick Disconnect) Sling Mount
  • Sling Swivel Stud
  • Lock
  • Instruction Manual
  • Plus some other printed materials

These next photos show the "as-received" condition of the rifle.  You can click on these photos or any others in my reviews and they will bring up a high resolution photo showing greater detail.  The rifle looked great just like you would expect from a new condition rifle.

The two things I noticed immediately were that the safety selector seemed a little jiggly (loose) when in the Safe or Fire position.  Also, the handguard was not centered around the barrel at the front end of the guard.  I loosened the two clamping screws, shifted the guard slightly and retightened the screws and the alignment looked good.  The photo on the left below was prior to the adjustment and the photo on the right was after the adjustment.

First Impressions

The new Ruger Precision Rifle is an impressive looking rifle that is packed with features.  The overall quality looked great, tweaking the handguard was no issue, and if the only issue is a jiggly safety, I think I can live with that.  One of the first things I always like to feel is the trigger on a new rifle and the "out of the box" 2 lbs 7 ounce trigger on this rifle felt great.
