Very VERY interesting. Ruger always gives great VALUE in whatever they build.

BUT,
My $499 Can dollars SUPERLIGHTWEIGHT Ruger American .308 SS COMPACT already shoots better than I can for 4 shots, without the scary "TACTICOOL" look and the extra weight.

So I will pass for now.

Thanks from wb4ky and NORKALNIMROD

Yeah, the recent trend seems to be marketing these modern super adjustable, tactical stocks. It'll be interesting to see a range report....

Are you suggesting I slap a Redfield Olympic on it and take it to Perry?

That's pretty slick. Not as light as my GSr, but slick

You get a 24" cold hammer forged 6.5 creedmoor with an adjustable stock + detachable magazine system (looks like it will take not only AR but M1A mags). If it shoots then it's a steal for 1399 MSRP.

Looks like a Space Gun. Are they still popular for across-the-course matches?

And i think Ruger and Accuracy do not belong in the same sentence.

Depends on the model Ruger......I have a couple tack driving Ruger rifles and Pistols/Revolvers.

I also had a mini-14 and a mini-30 that held thier own out to 100 line....which they really were not intended to do much past that anyway...why people thought the mini's were supposed to be precision target rifles was beyond me....even Ruger tried to make the mini into a target rifle at one time...sheesh.

While Ruger makes hell-for-strong rifles , even those they sold as target or varmint rifles have never exhibited 'precision' accuracy. I've owned a few M-77's and a No.1 and while certainly hunting accurate , 'precision' accurate they were not.

But all the AR platform needs is a top quality barrel. Wonder if Ruger uses their own make barrels.

For those who do not believe Ruger builds an accurate rifle, please test drive the "American".
I have not shot one yet that won't outshoot most rifles costing three times as much.

This "new" addition to their line up looks like it has possibilities!

Another way of looking at this is a BOLT ACTION AR 10.

In Canada, the AR 10 may NOT be legally used anywhere outside approved ranges.
The Ruger Bolt action ALMOST-AN-AR 10 may find a market up here as a precision hunting/varmint rifle. And in Canada, some places here classify BEARS as varmints.
[;)

But at that weight and that price,
I suspect most buyers will be hard to convince that an AR 10 might not be the better choice.

PS: My DPMS LR308B shoots about as good as I could want, and my ULTRALIGHT .308 , Ruger American Compact shoots even better ... for the first four shots, so I am not in the market to buy this new bolt gun.
