More sophisticated than the other two rifles, the bolt action of the Ruger Precision Rifle showed three heavy lugs. Not similar to Ruger's Hawkeye or Mark II actions, the bolt is proprietary and mates with Ruger's "American" rifle-series design.
The folding stock helps with transport, as well as providing step one in removing the bolt. The hinge was sturdy, but it had no provision to lock open. Different shooters were accommodated for length of pull and for comb height, which was locked into position using cam levers. The Picatinny rail along the bottom can be used for attaching a monopod or as a platform for rear bag support.
Samson's 15-inch-long Evolution series free-float handguard carries a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $219. This points up the modularity of the Ruger Precision Rifle as well as its value. The plug-like fitting was for a QD or "quick detach" sling loop. Mounting is via the Key Mod system that serves as a pegboard-like grid.
