SHOT16: PROOF Research Unveils Barrel for Ruger Precision Rifle

PROOF Research had their prototype composite drop in barrel for the Ruger Precision rifle on hand when I swung by the booth today. The barrel offers a weight savings of 1.25lbs over the factory Ruger barrel and shoots 10 shot, sub ¾ MOA using factory ammo…just when you thought that gun couldn’t get any better!

Proof Research Ruger Barrel

The PROOF test rifle consisted of a factory rifle fully equipped with PROOF composite drop in barrel, SilencerCo Harvester suppressor, Burris XTR scope, Atlas Bipod, Magpul MIAD grip, and TacAR Featherlight Stock. All up weight was 12.6lb.

Here is a photo of the Oehler 10-shot test results.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds’ Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you’d like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year’s SHOT, there’s a live map right here, though it doesn’t reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
