Patriot Valley Arms
Josh Kunz of Patriot Valley Arms is a world class machinist and gunsmith with years of experience in competitive shooting and mechanical engineering. You can see their work at the highest level of competitions such as the Precision Rifle Series, Camp Perry NRA Nationals, and the World Long Range Palma Championships.
Prior to pre-fit barrels, if you wanted an extremely accurate rifle you would have to spend a lot of time and energy finding a qualified gunsmith. Then, you would have to handpick all the components for the rifle build and hand them over to the gunsmith you chose. The worst part was you would have to wait weeks and most times months before your rifle was ready to shoot.
That era is coming to an end. Currently many custom actions are made with such tight tolerances that a gunsmith can make a pre-fit and chambered barrel for a particular action. This allows the customer to buy all the components for their custom rifle build and put them together by themselves with just a few tools.
Ruger Precision Rifle
The Ruger Precision Rifle (RPR) is one of the most sought after rifles for shooters that are looking to get into competitive rifle shooting. This is because it is easily customizable and relatively inexpensive. The downside to the factory RPR is that the barrel only comes in a limited number of calibers and is not as accurate as a custom rifle. With the pre-fit barrel upgrade by Patriot Valley Arms, you will now be able to shoot just as good as a custom rifle, but at a fraction of the cost. These Pre-fit barrels will work on both the RPR Gen I and Gen II. All barrels will be a medium palma contour with match grade chambers. The barrel manufacturer will be chosen by Josh Kunz and is based on availability. Possible barrels that will be used include Bartlein, Hawk Hill Customs, Rock Creek, and many other premium manufactures. The available options are 5/8x24 muzzle thread pitch and barrel lengths of 22, 24, 26, and 28. You can also choose what caliber you want your chamber (6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, 6XC, or 6.5x47 Lapua).
