  • Ruger American Compact , Great compact rifle

    Posted by Mike on Nov 16th 2015

    Great rifle for the price. It is hard to find a compact rifle that fires less than .5 groups at any price range with federal ammo. Lightweight so the .308 caliber has a little kick but the pad leaves little to be felt. A+

  • Spectacular Accuracy

    Posted by Ben on Sep 20th 2014

    I recently sold a very accurate Tikka T3 Superlite .308. I needed some cash, and it was on the high dollar end, so I took the scope off, purchased a much cheaper Ruger American Compact .308, and installed the same scope (Burris E1 3x9x40). I must say that this was a downgrade only on the cash side, on quality and accuracy the Ruger went above and beyond my expectations. The accuracy is identical to that of the Tikka! First day out, I put 2 groups on paper using Hornady Steel Match 168gr HPBT, those groups measured 0.65 inch, and 0.90 inch respectively. This is from the prone using a Harris bipod, no bench rest or vise grips here. You can't beat under 1 MOA for $300 bucks! This has taken the place as my hunting/medium to long range rifle, no doubt about it.

  • Nice entry level rifle

    Posted by Kmm on Jan 8th 2014

    As this is my first rifle, I'm not going to go into great detail. It's a light, accurate rifle that is great for target practice and hunting. At only 6 pounds, it can be slung for hours without discomfort. It will need a scope, but you don't need to go crazy on the cost for accurate groups at a reasonable distance.

  • Outstanding

    This is an outstanding rifle. I still can not believe the price. The action is smooth, the groupings are tight, and the rifle very lightweight.

  • Best Rifle for the Money

    Bought this gun about 6mos ago. Very accurate outta the box and finish & action is really quite nice. Great all around shooter. Great value for the money.
