Ruger Precision Rifle Review
Part 4 - Disassembly, Reassembly & Internal Features

Ruger Precision Rifle Review

In this part of my review I show disassembly, reassembly and talk about the internal features on the new Ruger Precision Rifle.  I take a slightly different approach with this review than other reviews in the past by relying mainly on two YouTube videos below for the commentary, yet I still include detailed photos so you can study the details with high resolution photos.

 


Disassembly & Reassembly

This next video goes over normal disassembly and reassembly of the Ruger Precision Rifle.  Ruger also has an instructional video at their website that covers these details and I recommend you watch it also.  You can also find Ruger's video on Youtube at this link.

This next photo gives you a look at the parts disassembled using the normal disassembly procedures identified in the Instruction Manual.  Overall I think disassembly and reassembly is very easy.  One thing that can be tricky is reinserting the bolt tool if by accident you remove the bolt tool while the bolt is disassembled.  I explain how to do this in my video.  Under most cleaning situations, all you need to do is fold the stock and remove the bolt assembly like any other bolt action rifle.  Removal of the lower receiver, trigger assembly and disassembly of the bolt would be needed less frequently unless you are utilizing this rifle in harsh conditions.

More Disassembly and Internal Features

Since Ruger designed the rifle to allow AR styled aftermarket parts such as the buttstock, pistol grip and handguard, I decided to go ahead and show removal of these items along with discussing further the internal features of the rifle.  The is shown in detail in this next video.

These next photos show the internal features of the rifle and are provided for your viewing pleasure.  Again, refer to the videos for commentary.

Thoughts

For you to fully understand my thoughts, you will probably need to watch the two videos since that is where I made most of my commentary.  The Ruger Precision Rifle is easy to assemble, but you need to make sure you don't remove the bolt tool accidentally when the bolt is disassembled.  I think Ruger has a very clever design with this rifle, specifically the way the upper receiver transmits all recoil forces directly to the buttstock and the way the lower receiver is made in two halves to reduce manufacturing costs.  Overall I was pleased with the form, fit and finish of the rifle components.
