Ruger is now offering a version of their ever-expanding Ruger American rifle line to include one with a factory-installed Magpul Hunter stock.
Chambered initially in .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor, both models of the new Ruger American Rifle Hunter series use Magpul’s new short action Hunter American stocks. Introduced by the Texas-based accessory company as a $300 aftermarket stock last year, the Hunter American has a cast aluminum bedding block and is fully adjustable across length of pull and comb height. The stocks incorporate a Magpul PMAG 5-round 7.62 AC detachable magazine.
Ruger bills the model as having “minute-of-angle accuracy that can make every hunt a success.”
The rifles come standard with a 20-inch five-groove heavy-contour that ends with 5/8x24TPI threads and a Ruger Precision Rifle hybrid muzzle brake similar to those used on the Ruger American Ranch series. Other features include a factory-installed, one-piece Picatinny scope base and Ruger’s Marksman adjustable trigger that can be tuned by the user from between 3 and 5 pounds. Overall length is 43.25-inches with all of the stock inserts installed and weight is 9.2-pounds without optics.
