Two-tone target stock features a two-way adjustable comb, adjustable length of pull with soft rubber buttpad, QD attachment points and flush-mounted lower M-LOK® rail.

I don't see the flush-mounted lower M-LOK® rail in any of the pictures or exactly how long or where located.

Being as it is flush mount, and none of the pictures show the underside of the forearm, you're not going to be able to see it.

Still no match chamber

Make it a 16” barrel with a match chamber and a target trigger all for the same msrp and then we would be cooking with gas

If you can't see it, it doesn't exist.

Seems to be a lot of extra money for nothing.

Right, it's under the forend, where the sling swivel studs would normally be...

My first reaction was: Awesome!

And then I realized that it's just a painted laminate stock (not fiberglass or something fancy).

Really, it's nothing more than a painted laminate stock...

I was hopeful this would be a step-up for the American...but no match chamber and nothing special about the trigger doesn't help its cause...

I thought it might be a good option for NRL22 base class...but I'm doubtful it will shoot with the CZ's and Tikka's...

I hate to be a buzzkill, but this really only makes sense for somebody who wants an RAR with a "target" style stock and doesn't want to bother buying one from Boyd's or whomever.

Depending on the street price, it might be cheaper than buying a regular rifle and an extra stock, but maybe not...

My RAR I've had have been more than accurate enough for squirrels but with the name and look of this one as well as price there is no reason it shouldn't be as good as a CZ or Tikka but sadly it will likely not measure up without a better chamber or trigger. Some will get a good one and some won't.

Now as to my opinion. I've become a trigger/gun snob over the years and it makes me see things in a pessimistic way when new gun come out. I always want to make them better, aka something they are not.

That's a rather ignorant comment. A person can't see his own arse hole either... But we all have one, and well, I'll be nice.

Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger offers a crisp release with a pull weight that is user adjustable between three and five pounds, allowing shooters to make that perfect shot.

Ruger should have done better than that. Adjustable between 3-5 lbs? 3 lbs should have been the upper end.

I wonder if the Ruger Marksman Adjustable™ trigger can be replaced with a much better Kidd.

No. But the trigger adjustment spring can be removed and it'll have a nice 1.5# trigger.

OK, understand. It's just the standard RAR Target (same trigger) in a new stock and longer barrel.

Yup, Agree, needs a match chamber and a 16" barrel with a better trigger..
C'mon Ruger...Get it right.
It's a rifle marketed for Precision...but it has Plinker engineering.

If you are after a better rifle stop whining and go buy one. Why would people expect a budget rifle to have what individuals want?
