I just found out about these today at my local gun shop. They got in two .308s that were already promised to folks and I was able to briefly examine one before it's new owner arrived.
The trigger was much closer to 2.5 pounds than 5 out of the box. I'm not a long range shooting guy but I have friends who are and I've shot their very expensive custom built rifles. The trigger isn't as good as one of those guns. The RPR trigger has more take up and isn't as crisp as something like a high end custom bolt gun. It is a hell of a lot better than the crap that Remington puts on the 700s and will work just fine for this rifles intended purpose and market demographic.
The side folding stock and all of it's adjustment hardware seemed very well designed and sturdy while being easy to adjust. The safety is located and works like a 45 degree AR safety. It doesn't make much noise at all when manipulated. Everything about the rifle seemed very well thought out and located where it should be. It felt solid and well made.
Retail at my favorite shop was $959 plus tax. That seems like a heck of a deal for what you get IMHO. Ruger is going to sell a ton of these things. They are going to do to the entry level precision rifle market what they did to the pocket and compact pistol market. That is a good thing for consumers.
