    New Ruger GB

    Hi there everybody, yup, another item.
    I was passing thru a local shop near me, and I found one of 2 Ruger GB20 rifles on the rack. This one pictured has LE Only markings dated 9/14/94.. is stainless came with 2 factory Ruger 20 rnd mags, and has the making of an AC556 rifle without the selector switch of course... so that means anybody can have the same thing (the GB20) without the 200.00 tax stamp.. It has the Factory bayonet lug and Factory flash supressor
    I traded the S&W 640 357Mag with the CT grips,(I orignally paid 344.50 for the S&W) plus 125.00 for the Ruger (the Ruger was 650.00) so I think I'm still way ahead of the game, especially thinking of future AWB type stuff from the next Presidential Administration.
    If you ever see one, scoop it up, as they're somewhat rare, and collectable too. I'm trying to post pics but am unable to do so right now for some reason

    Indeed Tom yes .. since our ''plug-pulling'' by our previous host we have benefitted by being put temporarily on a virtual server until our main move to total dedicated. Heck - nothing could be much slower than how we'd gotten!

    Still slight delays here and there but much more what we would like and when we do make the final move in near future, then we should be consistently fast.

    Thanks Chris! I found that we can't post pics yet but in time we will........The nice part about the GB series is they look like a M14 with the Factory bayonet lug and Factory birdcage flash supressor. (this is a 196 prefex series gun) They also resemble a AC556 rifle in every respect, minus the Selector
    I missed a local "polar bear carbine shoot" in Pelham NH today.. it would have been nice to bring this piece (the GB 20) out and shoot it in that IDPA type match. BTW, I already have a 22LR conversion kit for it, since I have a AC556. Range report forthcoming soon!!
