Ruger® Hawkeye® Varmint Target Rifle

Ruger® Hawkeye® Varmint Target Rifle

An Instant Classic

  • Target forend

  • Unique, two stage, adjustable target trigger with a short "take-up" stage, followed by a crisp, light target pull with no creep or overtravel.

  • Cold hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning.

  • Ergonomically pleasing stock has rounded contours along the barrel, on the bottom of the stock and on top of the pistol grip and wrap-around checkering on grip and forend.

  • Hinged solid-steel floorplate for easy unloading without having to chamber each cartridge. Features an engraved Ruger logo and patented latch that is flush with the trigger guard to avoid accidental dumping of cartridges.

  • Heavy contour cold hammer-forged barrel with target crown results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easy cleaning.

  • Patented integral scope mounts, machined directly on the solid-steel receiver, provide a stable mounting surface for scope rings, eliminating a potential source of looseness and inaccuracy in the field (scope rings included).

  • Ergonomically pleasing stock has rounded contours along the barrel, on the bottom of the stock and on top of the pistol grip.

  • Three-position safety is easily accessible and allows the shooter to lock the bolt or to load and unload the rifle with the safety engaged.

  • Also includes: rugged one-piece, stainless steel bolt; studs for mounting sling swivels.

Features listed above are available on all standard models, but may not appear on Distributor Exclusive models. See individual spec sheets for model specific features.
