The Hawkeye African is Rugers big game hunting rifle and delivers power and precision to bring down the largest of targets.
The LC6 trigger system that Ruger uses on all its Hawkeye rifles is crisp and responsive with a minimum of trigger "creep" that ensures a predictable let off and maximum control of shot placement.
The action of the Hawkeye African is made to a non rotating Mauser design and couples with a fixed blade extractor the reliably ejects spent cases and minimises the risk of jams or feeding issues.
The fixed floorplate magazine has a capacity of 3 and can be loaded and unloaded whilst the safety is activated to prevent accidental discharge or injury. The release of the magazine sits flush to the stock prevent its being knocked open and dumping its cartridges whilst still being easy to load and reload.
The African also comes complete with a 23" barrel that features expert internal rifling and provides perfect, pin point precision with every pull of the trigger. The barrel is richly blued and comes complete with iron sights and a recoil reducing muzzle brake.
If iron sights are not your thing than the African also features integrated scope mounts that are not just incredibly strong, but also fantastically stable, even under magnum levels of recoil for the clearest possible picture of your target.
The stock of the African is made from specially selected American walnut wood that provides this rifle with its handsome looks and great strength.
Also includes - rugged one-piece, stainless steel bolt; barrel band mounted swivel stud; optional forend swivel stud.
