Ruger is proud to announce the new Hawkeye® Hunter rifle chambered in several short- and long-action calibers. Based on the popular Hawkeye® Standard with a classic American walnut stock, this new stainless steel rifle comes paired with a factory-installed picatinny rail and threaded barrel, providing the avid hunter with the ultimate, rugged and hard-hitting rifle.
Non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor is among the most positive case extraction systems ever invented, and features a fixed blade-type ejector that positively ejects empty cases as the bolt is moved fully rearward.
Hinged, solid-steel floorplate for easy unloading without having to chamber each cartridge. Features an engraved Ruger logo and patented latch that is flush with the trigger guard to avoid accidental dumping of cartridges.
20 MOA Picatinny rail secured with four, #8-40 screws for increased long-range elevation capabilities overtop the traditional integral scope mounts that are machined directly on the solid-steel receiver.
Three-position safety is easily accessible and allows the shooter to lock the bolt or to load and unload the rifle with the safety engaged.
Ergonomically pleasing stock has rounded contours along the barrel, on the bottom of the stock and on top of the pistol grip and wrap-around checkering on grip and forend.
Free-floated, cold hammer-forged stainless steel barrel with 5R Rifling at minimum bore and groove dimensions, minimum headspace and centralized chamber.
The LC6™ trigger features smooth, crisp performance right out of the box for increased accuracy on the range or in the field.
