PROOF Research, makers of match-grade stainless steel barrels—and carbon-fiber composite barrels that deliver extreme accuracy, durability and up to a 50% weight reduction—are now offering barrels for the popular Ruger Precision Rifle (RPR) in two different installation configurations (Pre-Fit and Gunsmith-Friendly).
The new barrels have already been proven in competition with Wyatt Gibson using his to take 1st Place in the 2016 MGM Ironman, finishing 138 points ahead of the next-best shooter. According to Wyatt, “The PROOF Research carbon fiber barrel on my Ruger Precision Rifle made a huge difference in weight while not compromising accuracy. I have nothing but good things to say about it.”
“Pre-Fit” barrels for the RPR are available in steel or carbon fiber, arrive ready for installation without further machining required, and are chambered in a choice of .308 Win, .243 Win, .260 Rem, 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 Creedmoor.
The un-chambered “Gunsmith-Friendly” version (available in stainless steel only) comes threaded for the RPR action with a 27” finish length, scaled-down M24 contour, can be had in a number of popular calibers—and is ready for a gunsmith to chamber, cut to length, crown and install.
“Our cut-rifled stainless steel barrels have been proven in one competition after another and our composite barrels offer similar performance with 60% faster cooling and a significant reduction in weight,” stated Jason Lincoln, VP of Engineering and Product Development at PROOF Research. “These new barrel designs make it easy for Ruger Precision Rifle owners to upgrade their platforms, whether they want to reduce weight, tune handling characteristics, or to realize maximum accuracy.”
