I wanted some time with this gun before I reviewed it. I have had it for about 3 months now and absolutely love the gun! Mine shoots great, with factory 40grn winchester varment x it will touch 3 shots no problem at 100yrds. It is a tack driver with that ammo, even cheap 55grn factory shoots MOA. The fit and finish on mine was flawless, very rugged feeling gun (which I expect from a ruger). The design is your typical no nonsense ruger design with the droped floor plate and simple to operate bolt. I topped mine with a meopta meopro 3.5x10x42 and it fit great with the rings supplied. Very nice that ruger ships rings with the gun. I would call the barrel on this gun a medium contour, its heavier than your typical sporter barrel but is not too heavy to carry around the woods while coyote hunting. Everytime I have this gun out around people I get lots of compliments on it, the Ruger really is a nice looking gun with the laminate stock and stainless. Do understand this is not a light gun however, I don\'t have an issues hiking a few miles with it over my shoulder so its not particularly heavy but if your looking a light weight rifle for hiking long distances when calling coyotes this may not be your gun. Overall, im extremely happy with my purchase, I can shoot this gun as well as any other gun in my collection. Still getting used to the two stage trigger, but this is my first two stage. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone who asked about it. As always I had no issues with buds!

Gun shoots well. However, mine came with a very large burr on the breech face. It would scrap brass off the casings and build up until the next round would jamb in the breech requiring a tap of a rubber mallet on the bolt handle. Obviously this got past Ruger QC. I called Ruger and they told me to take it to the nearest gunshop. However, the gunshop wanted to charge me to ship the gun because I didn't buy it from them. Ruger seem complacent. I did not get a good feeling over the phone that Ruger was going to accommodate quickly or cared. The girl I spoke with was awful so I just fixed the gun myself. I solved the problem by grinding a light bevel in the breech face (it was flat from the factory) with a 1/2" metal burr ball and used a small file on the remaining burr. The burr/dent was actually quite large. The tools cost me ~$40, money well spent compared to rolling the dice on Ruger customer service. As far as the gun features are concerned, the stainless bead-blast finish is far too fragile. The metal finish mars easily so take care not to scratch it. The magazine binds on the action BADLY. I had to dremel out and file a sizable amount to clear it of binding on the action. Also, why hasn't Ruger moved up to a one-piece floor plate? I knew going in that it was still a two-piece design but it still surprises me Ruger hasn't upgraded the bottom metal design on their "flagship" design bolt gun. The barrel has a traditional hunter crown and mine is only fair-good in quality. I'm sure I'll cut in a new crown at some point down the road. My final grievance is that the stock is a pressure point/pressure fit design. This makes zero sense to me considering the gun has a slightly heavier contour barrel and a strong laminate stock. I ended up opening the barrel channel to free-float the barrel and bedded the action. The two-stage trigger takes getting used to but it is actually a very good trigger. The trigger came well adjusted and breaks ~2.5lbs. I'll leave it alone for now. I really liked the concept of this model but I think Ruger failed in a few areas of execution and quality control. Now that I've got all the bugs worked out I expect this to be a great gun moving forward. Considering how fragile the finish is I may get the gun finished by Robar at some point down the road.

What a great gun! This rifle is extremely accurate with a great feel. Ruger makes quality rifles and this gun backs that up 100%. This rifle is a great looking as well. Bud's was awesome to deal with as usual and the price was the lowest I could find anywhere.
