Yet another new product announced by Ruger Firearms in late 2017 and first showcased at the 2018 SHOT Show, the Ruger Precision Rimfire bolt-action rifle is a scaled-down version of the popular Ruger Precision Rifle: it maintains the same ergonomics, trigger and manual of arms as its bigger centerfire brother, and yet it's chambered in .22 Long Rifle, feeding from Ruger 10/22 magazines.

The molded one-piece chassis and adjustable buttstock assembly of the Ruger Precision Rimfire are manufactured with glass-filled nylon; the buttstock features a flat Picatinny bag rider making it easy to affix a rear monopod. A molded-in window provides a tether point for a squeeze bag, and a metal QD pocket for a sling.

The Quick-Fit adjustable Precision Rimfire stock allows length of pull and comb height to be quickly and easily adjusted to get proper fit over a wide range of shooter sizes, outerwear and shooting positions.

Indicating marks molded into the chassis help the shooter to quickly return to a previous position. An anodized Picatinny scope base includes 30 MOA elevation for increased long-range capabilities.

Ruger's own AR-Pattern pistol grip and safety selector incorporates an extended reach for maximum control and access to the 45 degree, reversible safety selector. May be configured with most AR-style grips and selectors.

The 18-inch target barrel of the Ruger Precision Rimfire is cold-hammer forged from 4140 alloy steel, features a 1/2"-28 thread for muzzle attachments and can be easily replaced by a competent gunsmith using AR-style wrenches and headspace gauges.

Each Ruger Precision Rimfire rifle is fitted with a Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger with a pull weight range of 2.¼ to 5 pounds (1 to 2,2 kilograms); the relevant adjusting wrench is stored in a buttstock compartment.

The 15" free-float handguard is made of hard black anodized aluminum and features Magpul M-LOK® slots on all four sides; the Big-Gun bolt throw adjustment enables shooters to change from a rimfire 1-1/2'' bolt throw to a short-action centerfire 3'' bolt throw, reducing the chance of short-stroking in competition.
