The Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan features a Hogue OverMolded stock which is moulded from durable synthetic rubber that provides a soft, recoil-absorbing feel without affecting accuracy. Its cold hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity. The barrel also features a Ruger Muzzle Brake System includes a removable, radial-port muzzle brake that significantly reduces felt recoil. The non-rotating, Mauser-type controlled round feed extractor is among the most positive case extraction systems ever invented and features a fixed blade-type ejector that positively ejects the empty cases as the bolt is moved fully rearward. The Hawkeye Alaskan also utilizes a hinged solid-steel floorplate, solid-steel receiver, LC6 trigger, three-position safety and a thread protector.
