You may be familiar with Christensen Arms Ridgeline rifle, or the “quintessential hunting rifle” that’s been around for some time. Christensen Arms has combined “all the best features of the Ridgeline into a new, compact scout rifle.” It’s a bit more lightweight than the Ridgeline at 5.9 lbs. and they say it was designed specifically for situations requiring a “compact firearm such as hunting from a ground blind, tree stand or possible use as a truck gun.”
Here’s more from Christensen Arms about the Ridgeline Scout Rifle.
Building upon the ever popular Christensen Arms Ridgeline series, the Ridgeline Scout is a purpose-built, bolt-action rifle chassis that combines all the best features of the Ridgeline into a new compact scout rifle. Specialized features include a Black-Nitride coated action, 0-MOA optic rail, barricade stop, a 10-rd AICS drop-box magazine, and a flat-shoe Trigger Tech trigger, all on a tan and black carbon fiber composite Sporter stock.
Weighing in at just 5.9 lbs., the Ridgeline Scout is available in four calibers all with a 16” muzzle-threaded barrel creating an ideal suppressor host. Most Ridgeline Scout rifles are backed by the Christensen Arms Sub-MOA Guarantee.
“We are excited to add the new Ridgeline Scout rifle to the Ridgeline series. The intent was to offer shooters the same familiarity and performance of the Ridgeline in a shorter, more compact, system,” said Stephen Graham, Senior VP of Marketing, Christensen Arms.
“This Ridgeline Scout has the same accuracy potential and dependability as our field-proven Ridgeline rifles, as they share many of the same features, technology and components.”
