Sturm, Ruger & Company is the latest manufacturer to offer a chassis-stocked rifle as part of its line, a competition/tactical bolt action called the Ruger Precision Rifle. Like most of its brethren (Savage makes one, and Bergara, and lots of other small gunbuilders) the RPR resembles an AR upper and lower with a bolt handle sticking out of it, an AR handguard, and in place of a conventional buttstock, a highly articulated framework with an adjustable comb and cheekpiece bolted on. Handsome, it ain’t. Light? At 10 pounds plus, sorry. Cheap? At a real world price of $1,100 or so, yes. Most such rifles cost a lot more. The future form of rifles? Probably, at least for some types.
