If you were going to buy a Ruger Precision Rimfire that was either .17 HMR or .22 Magnum which would you choose? The .17 HMR gets the nod in accuracy and trajectory while the .22 magnum packs a bit more energy on the target.
DRAKE A17/A22 Match Competition Long Range Tactical Rifle – The host rifle is a Savage A17 or A22 that is dropped into a custom fitted Drake A17/A22 Monolithic rifle chassis. This chassis has the ability to switch between a traditional AR style pistol grip and a more traditional rifle stock design, making this chassis option restrictive state complaint.
Additional design features include MAGPUL® M LOK attachment points; a varying selection of colors in both Cerakote and Mil Spec anodization, improved magazine tolerances over factory stocks and a night vision hood interface channel. Complete drop in compatibility requires no modification to factory barreled action.
Additionally, Drake has designed a 16” heavy barreled variant, further increasing the performance of the hard hitting .17 HMR cartridge.
Running a gauntlet ranging from young shooters to Combat Experienced Military Snipers, the DRAKE A17 / A22 TACTICAL COMPETITION CHASSIS RIFLE has proven to be a well accepted and truly enjoyable rifle to shoot.
The Savage ’A Series has proven itself for reliability and accuracy. Now shooters have an even more effective option with the A22 Pro Varmint. The rifle’s Boyds Pro Varmint rifle stock provides superior ergonomics and a light weight, extremely stable platform for the fluted heavy barrel. A one-piece Picatinny rail and user-adjustable AccuTrigger allow shooters to tailor the rifle to their exact needs, and the 10-round rotary magazine offers fast cycling. The straight-blowback action ensures safe and consistent cycling.
The Ruger 10/22 Tactical 21144 not to be confused with earlier version of the 10/22 tactical is Rugers attempt at offering a rifle that looks like an AR-22 but is a 10/22 at heart. That should equate to accurate and reliable but time will tell. From an appearance perspective I go from thinking it’s butt ugly to thinking it’s cool and I want one. It’s also interesting to note the rifle as it appears on the Ruger website does not look exactly like the model that’s for sale despite the same part number. In this case I trust Brownells picture that I have used for this post.
When working on our other websites I often communicate with manufacturers. Towards the end of a conversation I will almost always inquire about something .22 related whether a new rifle barrel or something else rimfire related. The response is usually along the lines we have some ideas or plans in the works but we are swamped with AR manufacturing. Now the market is saturated and companies are looking for new hardware to deliver to the shooting masses. I knew it would be just a matter of time before we would see a factory bolt action chassis rifle from someone. What I didn’t expect was Ruger to be first with their Precision Rimfire chambered in .22lr. I don’t need to rehash what’s know about the rifle, that can be read below. I will say I think the gun is a bit homely but form must follow function. Of course I bet it won’t belong before MDT or Indian Creek offer aftermarket chassis for this gun. If Ruger nailed it in the accuracy dept this $500 rifle can turn out to be quite a success and maybe the start of a trend from other manufacturers. Time will tell. I have two final thoughts. How long until the Ruger Precision Rimfire is available on other calibers like .17HMR and .22 magnum and will Ruger make a chassis version of the 10/22? What are your thoughts?

The Stiller Precision Rimfire Actions 2500X actions are Stiller Precision Rimfire’s attempt at perfection. No stone was left unturned for this line of actions. The processes and steps that occur in the manufacture of these are bordering on being ridiculous. We start with the finest stress relieved 416R steel. We gun drill, pull ream with barrel type bore reamers and OD turn the blanks to an oversize dimension. At that point some of the machining happens. We then heat treat the parts, stress relieve them and then GRIND the OD to the ID. The threads and face are then put in and engraved. The parts then go to Melonite to surface harden, make slick and black. They are then re-ground again and the OD is held within 0.001 diameter, straightness and roundness. It also gives the attractive black lettering on the perfectly ground surface. All the internal parts are made in similar fashions.
