The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

Press Release: Christensen Arms Ridgeline Scout

Much of the credit to the idea of a Scout Rifle must be attributed to the writing of Jeff Cooper. The idea of a magazine-fed, bolt action rifle firing an intermediate-to-large cartridge continues to this day, with vastly improved methods of mounting a scope, and the ability to suppress the firearm through threading and metallurgy. The Christensen Arms Ridgeline Scout embodies this tradition, integrating their carbon fiber barrel and a Black-Nitride coated action for a modernized specimen.

Christensen Arms Introduces New Ridgeline Scout Rifle

Gunnison, Utah – (October 20th, 2021) Christensen Arms, manufacturer of state-of-the-art precision firearms and custom carbon fiber barrels, is proud to announce the new Ridgeline Scout. This new rifle was created for situations that require a lightweight, compact firearm such as hunting from a ground blind, treestand or possible use as a truck gun. 

Building upon the ever-popular Christensen Arms Ridgeline series), the Ridgeline Scout is a purpose-built, bolt-action rifle chassis that combines all the best features of the Ridgeline into a new compact scout rifle. Specialized features include a Black-Nitride® coated action, 0-MOA optic rail, barricade stop, a 10-rd AICS drop-box magazine, and a flat-shoe Trigger Tech® trigger, all on a tan and black carbon fiber composite Sporter stock.

Weighing in at just 5.9 lbs., the Ridgeline Scout is available in four calibers all with a 16” muzzle-threaded barrel creating an ideal suppressor host. Most Ridgeline Scout rifles are backed by the Christensen Arms Sub-MOA Guarantee.

“We are excited to add the new Ridgeline Scout rifle to the Ridgeline series. The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the Ridgeline in a shorter, more compact, system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms. “This Ridgeline Scout has the same accuracy potential and dependability as our field-proven Ridgeline rifles, as they share many of the same features, technology and components.”
