Ruger announced it has added a new version of its Gunsite Scout Rifle chambered in 5.56/.223 with “out of the box” accuracy and reliability.

“This is a natural extension of the Gunsite Scout Rifle line,” said Gunsite Instructor Ed Head, one of the contributors to the original Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle design.

“Being chambered in a lower cost, universally available caliber, and with the Ruger reputation for reliability and accuracy, this is another serious rifle for those serious about rifles,” he added.

The Gunsite Scout Rifle features an alloy steel  cold, hammer-forged barrel that’s threaded for after-market compensators and brakes. The trigger guard and mag well are black polymer, and the bolt gun features a forward picatinny rail and integrated Ruger M77 scope mounts.
