The barrel tenon is threaded, so you actually screw the barrel into the receiver until it headspaces correctly with the bolt (you need go/nogo gauges for this). Then, you tighten down the barrel nut as a jam nut to keep the barrel from moving in the receiver. THEN, there's another nut that screws onto the barrel nut -- this last nut is called the handguard nut and it is basically the same as an AR15 barrel nut.

There are some decent photos of this setup here.

Yeah I am not sure how the AR barrel thing got started but it doesn't want to die in that GD thread. The 3 lug bolt should be enough to clue people in.

Hopefully allot of folks here get them soon and post some good range reports. If this would have came out 3 weeks ago, may have ended up with one of these instead of my savage. No regrets on the savage but still one of these would have been nice to get. After reading the review on snipers hide and reading the details of these rifles on Rugers web site, Ruger did there homework putting these together. Have had 2 ruger 44 magnums recently and know Rugers quality on there handguns. Never owned any of there rifles so will have to rely on folks reviews. The price on these is down right amazing. Any of you folks with precision high priced bolt rifles care to give your 2 cents on the build of these rifles?

Ruger is saying it's proprietary and I believe Frank with Sniper's Hide said the same in his article about the rifle.

Correct -- AR15 triggers will not work. Note also that the RPR trigger pack is attached to the "upper receiver," not the lower as in an AR.

The 6.5 Creedmoor is becoming very popular. Ruger made the right move.

I'm sure there will be aftermarket barrels coming out for the RPR since the barrel change is relatively easy.

If you like it that much you could have the barrel re chambered or buy one of the other calibers and sell the barrel and have a 260 screwed on.

.260 still has no factory match loads that I'm aware of. Going with 6.5creed makes sense for them. (And me )

Got an email back from Ruger (fast response) asking them about custom orders. They do not at this time but will pass my request on to there sales department. Kind of figured anyways but didn't hurt to ask.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it and it makes sense since the AI is the precision rifle by which all others are judged and the designer of this rifle is a member on SH where AI is the king. Bolt throw, swept back handle, 3-lug bolt, user replaceable barrel, etc. are all cues from the AI to me. The handguard is as well.

I'd say an AIAX would be the closest match but being compared to an AI is a good thing in my opinion.

For an AI AT it would be another 2 Ruger's with money left over for a SWFA SS 3-15x42

Seriously thought if you want a new AI AE MKIII 2.0 (folding stock) it is about $2200 more for the AI than the Ruger if the AI is purchased from Mile High Shooting. For that money though you get a superb rifle that is proven to just work and work. I know of one AI AE (I would assume MKII) that has over 100,000 rounds through it and is on its 12th or 13th barrel.

For the $1500 and under price point I don't see anything coming close to the Ruger, however, if you can stretch your budget to $2100 or so I would go with a used AI AE MKII.

That is accurate if talking a new AIAT, however, I know that Mile High Shooting has a used AIAW for $4K with an Atlas bipod and AI mount which is a damn good price as well as new AI AE MKIII 2.0's for ~$3200. I would have bought it if I wouldn't have gotten my AI AE MKIII Covert for $4K w/ the suppressor.

I agree. The AR influences are heavy in the RPR just like the 98B and MRAD.

This is could be a great rifle. Prices have been getting severely out of hand. Hopefully Ruger can put out a quality product at this price point and put some economic pressure on other manufacturers . When was the last time a gunmaker announced a product with it available for purchase in quanity?

Definitely more like an MRAD, tube gun or even DTA given its recoil path. AI is like a traditional stock/chassis in that respect. From the cutaways I have seen, prefit-barrels will be possible. It certainly will not be a quick process though. Also looks like your married to the Samson HG given the way the 2 barrel nuts interact.

Cool rifle non-the less. Being able to use any magazine and the price point with the features that it packs, I predict Ruger will not be able to keep up with demand.

Supposedly, the way the handguard attaches is such that any ar15 handguard would work.

Looking at this cutaway, the evolution HG works because it has those Thermal Bushings allowing the HG to slip over the RPR's barrel nut. Most other HG index off the AR15 barrel nut and will leave the RPR's barrel nut exposed. At least thats the way it looks to me...

According to the parts schematic, there is a barrel nut and a handguard nut and also those thermal bushings. I haven't handled one, but I'm thinking the handguard nut is a standard ar15 size barrel nut so that any other handguard and proprietary nut would be a drop in replacement.

I was quoted almost exactly the same thing for a 6.5CM. They were hoping for the first week or so of August before they'd see their initial shipment. I'm not in a hurry so that's fine with me.

Damn it Ruger!!! So I can expect to have a chance at getting one of these in maybe 5 years.

This hobby sucks. Seems like there is some secret test you have to take to become a manufacturer with any ties to the gun industry that ensures you are too conservative to make money.

I'm hoping to see one of these soon. If so, it will have to come home with me.

This is the first Ruger I have wanted since buying a Mark II target .22lr pistol twenty years ago! Finally.
