Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce that the Ruger Guide Gun has been awarded the 2013 Best of the Best Award from Field & Stream. Only products thoroughly tested by the Field & Stream panel and found to meet their criteria receive this designation. The new Ruger Guide Gun combines aspects of several of Ruger’s most popular rifles to produce a high-performance, feature-rich hunting rifle that is ready for all conditions and hunting opportunities.
“We are pleased that the experts at Field & Stream have recognized the unique qualities of the Ruger Guide Gun,” said Ruger President & CEO Mike Fifer. “Significant thought, development and testing went into this rifle in order to create a versatile firearm perfect for hunting situations all around the globe,” he concluded.
The Ruger Guide Gun includes a revolutionary Ruger Muzzle Brake System. The RMBS is a removable, radial-port muzzle brake that significantly reduces felt recoil. When the brake is not preferred, it may be replaced by the dynamically matched muzzle weight, which is provided as part of the system. Switching between the brake and the weight will not change the bullet’s point of impact. The included thread protector may be used if neither the brake nor the weight is desired.
Considering the popularity of the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle, Ruger decided to incorporate the soft rubber recoil pad and three 1/2″ spacers that allow shooters to create a properly sized stock and perfect length of pull. With this versatile system, a shooter can accommodate a change in outerwear of varying thickness, for example.
The Ruger Guide Gun also incorporates proven M77 Hawkeye features such as Mauser-type controlled feeding and a powerful claw extractor, three-position safety, and Ruger patented scope rings (provided at no charge) that install on the integral mounts. The design of the patented steel floorplate, which bears the distinctive Ruger logo, provides easy unloading and eliminates accidental “dumping” of ammunition.
All Ruger Guide Guns feature windage adjustable shallow “V” notch rear sights and large white bead front sights for instant sight alignment. The Ruger Guide Gun also contains the light and crisp LC6 trigger. The stainless steel receiver and barrel, featuring a barrel band sling swivel, combine with a Green Mountain laminate stock to provide a weather resistant firearm for all seasons and climates.
The new Ruger Guide Gun bolt-action rifle is available in .30-06 Sprg., .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag., .300 RCM, .338 RCM and .375 Ruger. A left-handed configuration is available in .375 Ruger.
