Ridgeline RD15 LPR – First Look with Sun and Shadow

John Hatcher of Sun and Shadow gives an overview of the new Ridgeline RD15 LPR. We got our first quick look at the rifle tucked away at the Badger Ordnance booth at SHOT 2024, but this is the first time we’ve seen anyone go hands-on with the rifle.

The rifle stands out due to its unique chassis, providing a solid foundation for optimal performance. The semi-monolithic receiver incorporates precision-engineered elements to deliver the most stable semi-automatic platform by eliminating common interferences that affect precision. This includes a barrel that is both thermal and press-fit into the receiver, secured with a 3” steel jam nut, supporting the chamber, and acting as a heat sink for enhanced barrel life.

The semi-monolithic design ensures the rail does not affect the barrel nut, preventing any point of impact shift. Whether shooting from a bipod, bag, barricade, or tripod, the rifle maintains consistent and repeatable accuracy. The 6061 T6 aluminum MLOK rail features an integrated Really Right Stuff ARCA Swiss rail and MLOK at the 6 o’clock position for maximum adaptability. The press-fit between the rail and receivers creates a remarkably stable visual experience, allowing the shooter to stay on target shot after shot.
