Our Assessment: The Ruger Precision Rifle was developed to put the same quality and accuracy of much more expensive rifles into the reach of beginners who may not want to take out a second mortgage to build a long-range rifle, while still making it modular for those who want to upgrade parts. The rifle can use most AR-15 handguards and grips, an after-market for barrels quickly sprang up and the RPR has become one of the most popular precision rifles on the market. This example looks to have been purchased and seldom used, with little to no signs of use. It is chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor, making this an ideal rifle for those sensitive to harsh recoil. Good luck and happy bidding!
