ruger precision rimfire 22 wmr review

The ruger precision rimfire 22 wmr review is a scaled down version of the centerfire RPR that first hit the market in 2017. It’s a surprisingly good little rifle that packs a lot of features into an affordable package.

Like its big-brother, the Precision Rimfire features a molded one-piece chassis constructed with glass-filled nylon for strength, stiffness and stability. Its Quick-Fit adjustable stock allows the length of pull and comb height to be easily adjusted for a wide range of shooter sizes, outerwear and shooting positions, with indicator marks molded into the chassis to quickly return to previous settings. The rifle also has a flat Picatinny bag rider and a rear mounting point for a QD sling. Its 18" target cold hammer-forged barrel is threaded 1/2x28 and has ultra precise rifling. It’s equipped with a 15" free-float handguard with M-Lok slots on all four sides and the pistol grip is an AR-style unit that can be swapped out for other options. It also has the company’s Marksman Adjustable Trigger, with a let-off weight range of 2.25 to 5 lbs.

Its bolt throw is adjustable too -- by removing a spring clip you can change it from the rimfire 1.5" bolt throw to a longer 3" throw, which is more in line with what you’ll find on a short-action centerfire rifle and reduces the chances of short-stroking in competition. The trigger is the same as the one found on the centerfire RPR, and it’s oversized to aid in handling.
