Those who own one - what's your opinion? I'm thinking of buying one in .22LR.

Accuracy, ease of maintenance, fit - anything you can think of.

Thanks!

They are well worth the money in all sizes. The 22 LR is flat out fun to shoot and a tack driver at 50-100 yards for me. Also have the 5.56 and 308 versions. They are pretty robust and also fun to shoot. Both have Magpul PRS 3 stocks on them and now they really rock for me. Don't hesitate to get the RPR rimfire.

I purchased a RPR mostly for target shooting-which it does very nicely.
I mounted a Vortex 4x12x40 AO with as low of mounts I could find-small face small mounts.
I have had zero problems feeding or extracting and accuracy is very good with the CCI Standard Velocity rounds.
I have not found anything I do not like so there is that.

8 months in and hundreds of rounds down range, still having a blast with it. Cabela's brand 3x9x40 22 rimfire scope on it. I have run CCI mini mags in both 36 and 40 grain, CCI std. velocity and CCI Green Tag thru it. Also Remington golden 40 gr, Remington Target, Federal AM22, CCI Clean 22 and CCI Patriot pack. Green Tag shoots the tightest group at 50 yards with a single dime size hole. Recently picked up some Norma match, Norma Tac-22, Federal Gold Medal Target and Gold Medal HV Match. Norma Match looks promising and CCI Std. velocity is a close second for group size. The Ruger Precision Rimfire is a Great shooting rifle.

I just picked mine up this week. It has functional perfectly and accuracy has been good especially with standard velocity .22 LR. The problem I've been having is with my scope (Redfield Revolution). To get it sighted in I maxed out the elevation adjustment. With that, High Velocity is 2-3 inches high at 50 yards while the standard is right on. As was pointed out to me in a post in the Optics forum, the 30 MOA base is likely the problem. Reading on line at the Warne Website, explained for under 600 yards a 0 MOA is preferred. There explanations were based on comparing the 0 to a 20 MOA. Why Ruger put a 30 MOA on the rifle is a mystery. At shopruger, they do have a 0 MOA base specifically for this rifle. I used my 20% coupon and one is on the way.

Thanks, everyone!

Also, my apologies for posting this in the Pistol forum - I made a wrong turn.

Interesting. I too wondered about the 30 MOA rail and can only guess that it's for people interested in those super-long-range .22 competitions where you're shooting out to 400 yards.

I checked out a Precision Rimfire in .22 WMR at the range (just picked it up and looked at it, didn't shoot it) the other day, and having read about the 30 MOA rail on the .22LR versions I examined the rail, and it appeared to be a 0 MOA rail - but it sure wasn't 30 MOA. So I wonder what Ruger is up to.

one of my sosns in law has one and with a 4x12 voretex it is extremely accurate and I only borrowed it. It seems a very good value.

I just ordered one and will pick it up Thursday or Friday. I also ordered a 0 MOA rail from ShopRuger since most of my shooting, at least at first, will be at my local indoor range which has a max range of 84 yards.

I'm looking forward to it; it looks like a really fun rifle!

Suggestions for scopes, anyone? I'd like good quality, maybe 6 - ?? zoom, thinking that I'd like to reach out to 200 yds at the range in Decatur.

I like mine. Maintenance is easy. I just pop out the bolt, run it the sonic cleaner, swab out the bore and lube everthing. Picked up a Leupold AR Scope, bipod and a forward hand rest. Had it for a bit over a year and I'm very happy with it. I can get quarter size hits consistently at 75 yards. The rifle shoots better than I do.

I like mine, have not encountered any problems at all. Getting solid 1/2 inch at 50 yards with occasional flyer. Don't really care for the 30 moa scope base, would much prefer a std one. The rifle is really fun to shoot. I run mine with a axiom suppersor makes a fine set up.

Was that for rimfire or centerfire?
