Ruger Precision Rifle Custom Shop Model 18084 6.5 Creedmoor

We found the Ruger Precision Rifle to be a hefty piece at 11.5 pounds without a scope, and that weight is appreciated because it steadies the rifle and is less affected by the blood pulsing through body as you take a shot.

Taurus Pump Action Rifle M62R 22 LR

The other Brazilian-made rifle is a used Taurus M62R, which is a copy of the iconic Winchester Model 62. Winchester made the Model 62 from 1932 to 1958.

Rossi Gallery 22 RP22181SY 22 LR

The Gallery 22 gives the old-time look of a Gallery Gun a makeover in polymer, oversized trigger guard, and fiber-optic sights.

Henry Pump Action Octagon H003T 22 S/L/LR

Like the Taurus, the style of the Henry Pump is reminiscent of the Winchester Model 62 with a straight pistol grip buttstock and ribbed, corn-cob fore end, and traditional iron sights.

Tikka T1X MTR GAG AS-JRT1X3 22 LR

Gun Tests magazine has covered Tikka centerfire rifles in the past (see the March 2020 and October 2021 issues) with very favorable results. While certainly not cheap, neither are they expensive and, we feel, offer a great value for the cash required.

Ruger Precision Rimfire 8401 22 LR

Ruger introduced the centerfire Precision Rifle in mid-2015, thereby starting a revolution. The rifle turned out to be pretty accurate (0.75-moa groups were common for us).

Bergara B14R B14R001 22 LR

Coming in at a bit more than 9 pounds, the Bergara B14R was the heavyweight in our selection. The 18-inch barrel measured around 0.85 inch just behind the threaded muzzle, tapering down from 1.3 inch in front of the receiver ring.

Christensen Arms Ranger 22 8011200100 22 LR

In direct contrast to the Bergara, Christensen Arms decided to forego recoil mitigation and opted, instead, for portability. Everything in this rifle is designed for maximum weight savings.
