What’s Hot at SHOT 2023: Ruger SFAR Autoloading Rifles

Ruger’s SFAR Autoloading Rifles are bigger and stronger where they need to be and smaller and lighter than comparable .308-sized rifles.

The Ruger® SFAR Semi-Auto Rifle is a streamlined, slimmed-down version of an AR-10. With the size reductions, Ruger brings this large-caliber autoloader close to an AR-15 in size. The 15″ handguard is a Lite-Free-Float rail with M-LOK® slots. A 4140 chrome-moly barrel features 5R rifling and keeps this package small and versatile.


CAPACITY: 20 rounds
HEIGHT: 7.20″
WEIGHT: 7.3 lb.
TWIST: 1:10″ RH
LENGTH OF PULL: 11″ – 14.25″
BARREL LENGTH: Available in either 16.10″ or 20″
MSRP: $1329.00

Equipped with a Ruger Elite 452® trigger that delivers a smooth, crisp 4.5-pound 2-stage trigger pull, SFAR Autoloading Rifles also feature a full-strength hammer spring and lightweight hammer to ensure fast lock times and consistent primer ignition.

Made from a 7075-T6 hard-coat anodized aluminum forging, the upper receiver is complete with a brass deflector, forward assist, and full-length Picatinny rail. The lower receiver features a generous flare on the magazine well for easy magazine insertion. Venting holes in the upper receiver, barrel extension, and bolt carrier of the Ruger SFAR ensure that excess gas is directed safely away from the user.

Ruger tops this barrel off with their Boomer muzzle brake, which helps to mitigate recoil. The mid-length, direct gas impingement system keeps this Ruger running consistently. Due to the extended mid-length gas system, recoil gets even more manageable. The 4-position gas block allows user adjustment on the fly. CNC-machined receivers add strength and beautiful aesthetics to this compact design. A Magpul® SL® stock gives you the support you need while maintaining a slim profile.
