This week’s auction item is the Ruger Precision Rifle™ previously owned by Ruger® CEO, Mike Fifer. It is the rifle Mike used to shoot a steel target at 1600 yards!! Mike states, "Whether shooting tight groups at 100 yards, or reaching out to steel plates at 1,000 yards or beyond, shooting the Ruger Precision Rifle is a highly satisfying experience. The engineering applied to the action of the Ruger American Rifle® brings world-class performance to Ruger long-range marksmanship." Included in this auction is an autographed photo of Mike Fifer with the steel target as seen on the Ruger Precision Rifle™ Challenge website. This is a 6.5 Creedmoor caliber rifle and the serial number is 1800-00562. The rollmark date is April 2, 2015. The Ruger Precision Rifle™ features an MSR stock adjustable for length of pull and comb height.
