Watch the video below to learn more about the new Ranger .22 and the new titanium Ridgeline.
The Ranger 22 has an aluminum receiver but utilizes steel locking lugs for strength and durability. The hand-lapped 18” carbon fiber tensioned barrel carries the Christensen Arms sub-moa accuracy guarantee, though for the rimfire this is at the appropriate distance of 50 yards. The muzzle is threaded ½ x 28 tpi for attachment of a suppressor if desired.
Atop the receiver is a 0-degree Picatinny rail for mounting the needed optics. Whether the Ranger 22 is used for plinking, small game, or rimfire precision matches this should be adequate.
The flyweight action and barrel are mounted in a Christensen Arms carbon fiber rimfire stock. This stock is very well designed with vertical grip, a generous palm swell, a flat fore-end, a palm hook for the support hand, and a sticky recoil pad.
The action is fed from the very reliable 10/22 style 10 round rotary magazines. The bolt handle on the action is a bit longer than expected and adds the leverage to make action operation effortless.
A Triggertech Field trigger is used to send the little 40-grain rimfire pills downrange. However, any Remington 700 compatible trigger will fit the Christensen Arms Ranger 22.
Shooting the Ranger 22 at the range was an absolute pleasure and it managed hits out to the 100-yard targets before it was impossible to see the small impacts on the steel targets. The MSRP for the Ranger 22 is $795 and are heading to the dealers now.For more information, Visit Christensen Arms
