brn 1 chassis

The Brownells BRN-1 6061 T6 aluminum chassis system is inspired by the MDT chassis designs. The system makes the Ruger American Predator rifle into a semi-AR15 like configuration.

The free flat bedding system ensures the barrel doesn't make contact with anything to preserve barrel harmonics. 

This means the chassis can accept AR style pistols grips, buttstock and other parts.

Anarchy Outdoors Scope Base, Ruger American Rifle, 40 MOA, Black, RASB-40

For long range shooters, a 30 or 40 MOA slanted scope mount base is needed in order to provide the scope with more elevation turret adjustments.

This one-piece Anarchy Outdoors scope base can accept any mil-spec scope rings or mounts. 

This part only works with the stock rifle without any chassis upgrade.

Anarchy Outdoors Ruger Precision & Ruger American Bolt Handle Upgrade, Right Hand, Silver, 791617485198

Scope With Christmas Tree Reticle


There are a ton of options, we highly recommend checking out our long range scope guides to find a optic that works for you.

Depend on what you want to do with your Ruger American rifle, a 3-9X is a good starting point, if you want range and precision, go with a 1st focal plane 5-25X scope with a H59 like aiming reticle.

These reticles look like a Christmas tree, and it has MOA or MRAD grid to help the shooter estimate target and dial MOA to get accurate shot.
