FTR Custom Rifles

The F/TR rifle was first envisioned by George Farquharson, a Canadian shooter.  Dubbed the "F-Class" after Farquharson, the f-class competitions originally provided an alternative for shooters who lacked the physical ability required to shoot in conventional prone rifle competitions. F-Class has grown in popularity now and in many competitions the F-T/R class will be the biggest division.

See our Photo Gallery of Custom FTR Rifles.

Unlike the "F Open" class where the shooter gets a choice of calibers, the "F Class Target Rifle" (FTR) category was created for 223 and 308 shooters.  For long-range shooting, 308 is preferred because 223 tends to lose accuracy after 600 yards.  In addition to being constrained to the 223 or 308 caliber, the FTR rifle must use a bipod whereas the F-Open shooter can have a heavy and elaborate front rest for their rifles.

These constraints to FTR make it important to choose a custom FTR rifle that is accurate.  There are many factors that influence your ability to win in FTR:

  • Barrel:  You need to choose the appropriate twist and ensure that the barrel is made from the finest steel available, anywhere in the world.

  • Bolt:  The bolt must be precisely aligned with the action and chamber.

  • Stock:  The stock must have the proper weight and balance.

  • Optics:  You must have the "right" FTR rifle scope for your shooting needs.

  • Bipod:  You must have a precision bipod that supports your FTR rifle and allows it to slide.

Precision Rifle & Tool is a leader in precision rifles for F-class and FTR competitions, and we boast that our FTR rifles have won dozens of championships.

If you want a FTR custom rifle that will win competitions, then your choices are very limited.  You need to seek out a gunsmith that will give you personalized support, advise you on the best configuration, and have the skill to create a custom FTR rifle that is accurate to one-half MOA at 1,000 yards.

With a custom rifle we built Mr. Phil Kelley won the NC Long Range Championship and set the new World & National Record while doing so with a clean 200-5X at 1000 yards with a .308 in F-T/R Div.

The F-T/R Low Boy Rifle Stock

The “Low Boy” T/R stock was designed for the competitive F-T/R shooter. This stock has won the US NRA nationals, many state and regional matches, and has also set world records. The features that make our F-Open “Low Boy” stock a winner have been incorporated into this unit. Its ability to be fired from bi-pods with a low profile and still ride the rear bag make it a winning choice for this type competition.
