The grip is missing and a replacement is NOT included. The hand guard has a few light scuffs, mostly on the top.

Our Assessment: The Ruger Precision Rifle was developed to put the same quality and accuracy of much more expensive rifles within 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 (which you’ll need, as no grip is included here), and 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 beyond the fouling in the bore. It is chambered for 6.5 Creedmoor, making this an ideal rifle for those sensitive to harsh recoil. Good luck and happy bidding!
