The Hawkeye FTW Predator is the newest member to join Ruger’s popular Hawkeye line of bolt-action rifles. This new model combines popular features of the Gunsite Scout Rifle and the Hawkeye Predator to deliver a long-range, accurate rifle for both range and field.

The Hawkeye FTW Predator rifle design began with extensive on-range consultation with SAAM (Sportsman’s All-weather, All-terrain Marksmanship) shooting instructors at the world-renowned FTW Shooting School in Barksdale, Texas.

The SAAM instructors were impressed with the proven accuracy of the Hawkeye Predator and the quick handling of the Gunsite Scout rifle. With their input, Ruger engineers designed a rifle that combines the trigger and action of the Hawkeye Predator with the adjustable buttstock design found on the Gunsite Scout rifle. The result is a perfect combination of ergonomics and long-range accuracy needed in a fast handling predator rifle.
