Thread: A change of heart and a new rifle.

  1. #1

    A change of heart and a new rifle.

    I am not a fan of Ruger rifles other than their rimfires but that might change soon. A shop in the city has these for sale. It's the "American Predator" model, six pounds 10 ounces in the box, 22" barrel and cut for a suppressor. In 6.5 Creedmore it is selling for $389 US. They have been selling out as fast as they come in. I told him to call me when the next shipment comes in. Might be a decent rifle, might not. I guess I'll find out.~Muir

    Is that trigger the same as on the savage (accu trigger)?

    Interesting calibre, hope the rifle exceeds your expectations. Is it primarily for hunting?

    Difficult to believe "Muir gets a new rifle"!

    I don't really have any expectations but yes, it would be a hunting rifle if anything.
    Yes John, I love a gamble.
    Trigger is similar to the Accu-trigger.

    David: Yeah. I'm full of surprises.....~Muir

    I've had second thoughts on the chambering. I may go with another 308. Shorter, stiffer tube and if I decide to give it to my new daughter-in-law*, she can get ammo without a fuss.~Muir

    By the way, that action seems different to the mk2 or? New safety? Do they come in different action sizes or one fits all?
    I didn't take much notice of Ruger at the last show.
