My ranged fighter uses Bracers of Falcon's Aim which gives a passive Aspect of the Falcon spell. http://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic/all-spells/a/aspect-of-the-falcon
The item isn't too expensive and since nearly every ranged weapon is nat20 only (except for repeating crossbows) it is equal to the feat Improved Critical but without any prerequisites.
Critting with ranged weapons is a real uphill battle. You would need a heavy repeating crossbow (1d10 19-20x2), exotic weapon proficiency h.r. xbow, improved critical (1d10 17-20 x2), bracers of falcon's aim (1d10 17-20 x3) all the feats to get crossbow mastery (loading) and point blank master, critical focus (+4 to confirm), the Vital strike tree (+1d10 not multiplied on crit, but devastating strike bonus does get added) to get improved devastating strike (+2 to confirm) *Greater snap shot does the same, and as many attack of opportunity feats as possible to shoot as often as possible. And if you have any feats left, get bleeding critical (2d6 bleed to the enemy at the start of his turn). You'll finally need the weapon focus tree, and weapon specialization tree.
I'm playing in a game where you can purchase and learn feats (imagine Neo from Matrix downloading Kung Fu), so it's possible for me to do most of that, but I doubt anybody else can get all these feats
