Building on the incredibly precise 557 short action, the Varmint model adds a stout 25.6″ barrel in a heavy profile that tapers to a 0.863″ muzzle. Anchored in a newly-designed walnut stock, it has a healthy palm swell, laser-cut stippling and a flat forend. With ergonomics as the guiding principle in the stock’s development, the result is an incredibly comfortable rifle to lay behind, whether you’re punching paper, ringing steel or knocking off prairie dogs at great distances.
The 557 Varmint is chambered in .308 Win. or .243 Win.
