Ruger American Rifle Innovative Features

William Batterman Ruger is the man behind the Ruger American Rifle (RAR). He was able to resurrect the guns of the late 19th century, enhanced the design, then earn a lot on each new design.

Clever Curve

When designing a firearm, you normally start with the magazine, this is what Ruger engineers did in this rifle. They have done something clever. The Ruger American Rifle’s magazine is detachable, which is not rare, but it is likewise rotary, which is very uncommon in a centerfire rifle.

Instead of having a flat bottom it has a shallow four-round box. This enabled Ruger to design a slender, molded stock that follows the magazine’s profile. And because of this, it has a curved bottom, too, instead of the ordinary flat. It also has a good recoil pad.

Power Bedding System

The Ruger’s Power Bedding System is embedded in the stock, hanging beneath the front receiver ring. It has 4 angled aluminum bedding blocks that snugly fit in the receiver’s grooves. If the bedding screws are tightened, it will pull the receiver straight down as well as the wedge into position, this contributes to the rifle’s remarkable accuracy.

There are two stainless steel V blocks, bedded into the stock with upper surfaces that is carefully-machined. A slight radius is built into one surface to make up for any modifications in parts fit. On the receiver’s underside, just aft and fore of the ejection port, are sets of slots that snuggle neatly into the V-block fingers. To secure the action to the stock it has two allen head screws, and if everything is snuggled-down, you will have a metal-to-metal fit. In case the weather changes, if things get knocked around, it does not matter. The secret to accuracy is consistency, and this system is consistent.

The stock is contoured nicely and in the forearm it has built-in unique finger grooves. The RAR grip is enhanced with a molded-in gripping surface, and the magazine plastic box is easily inserted or detached.

I enjoyed this video the first time I watched it so I though I would share with everyone. This is a good lesson for those who think you need more than a 30-06 when hunting in North America.
