The stock is designed to provide a comfortable and secure grip, facilitating better control and handling. Additionally, the stock includes textured gripping surfaces, ensuring a positive grip even in adverse weather conditions.

Picatinny Rail: The rifle comes with a full-length factory-installed Picatinny rail on the receiver, allowing for easy attachment of optics and accessories. Shooters can mount a wide range of scopes, red dot sights and other accessories to enhance their shooting experience and precision.
Tang Safety: The Ruger American Predator incorporates a tang-mounted safety for convenient and intuitive operation. The tang safety allows for quick engagement and disengagement, enhancing safety during handling and transport.
