According to the press release, this latest version of the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle features a cold hammer-forged, medium-contour, alloy steel barrel with a matte black oxide finish. The threaded barrel is fitted with a Ruger Precision Rifle Hybrid Muzzle Brake, which is removable in case you want to attach accessories like the included thread protector. The rifle’s trigger guard and mag well are formed of glass-reinforced nylon. The mag release is a push-forward Mini-14 paddle which is located ahead of the trigger guard.
Meanwhile, the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle in .450 Bushmaster also features a non-glare, protected blade front sight and ghost ring adjustable rear sight. In addition, it has a forward-mounted Picatinny rail that lets you mount modern optics for “both eyes open” target acquisition. Also included are patented integral scope mounts and scope rings for conventional scope mounting.
This rifle has an American Walnut stock, with “Gunsite Scout Rifle” engraved on the grip cap. The stock itself is equipped with sling swivel studs and features a checkered grip and forearm. A soft rubber recoil pad with three, 1/2″ spacers allow for the length of pull to be adjusted and sized for different shooters, or to give the shooter a proper fit with varying layers of outerwear.
