Ruger’s Gunsite Scout Rifle was designed to be an all-around gun that anyone could use for self-defense, hunting or target shooting, and chambered in .308 it’s more than enough to take down deer and big game.
This year Ruger is offering the lightweight composite version, which shaves weight while retaining the durability and accuracy demanded for such a weapon. It’s a cool gun and quite versatile.
The composite stock reduces the rifle weight to 6.25 pounds, 3/4 pounds less than the popular laminate wood stock version. This new version features a forward aluminum bedding block and rear aluminum pillar that positively locate the receiver and free float the 16.1″ barrel for outstanding accuracy.
The new composite stock, available on right-hand rifles chambered in .308 Win., contains the versatile adjustable length of pull found on all models of the current Gunsite Scout Rifle. Recognizing the importance of a proper fitting rifle, Ruger developed this adjustable system, which allows the shooter to change the length of pull to fit their individual needs. The length of pull can be adjusted from 12.75″ to 14.25″ to give the shooter the proper fit with outerwear or defensive gear of varying thickness, or properly fit the rifle to different shooters.
