Let's see...in recent years, Ruger has introduced:
Revamped Mini 14s
The Scout rifle
The first polymer framed revolver (LCR)
The SR9/40 series
a .22 version of the Sp101
the .327 cartridge and revolvers chambered for it
a .22 version of the LCR
a new .22 auto pistol
their own 1911
their own AR
and I'm sure I'm missing some
I don't think there are many firearm makers - anywhere - that have been introducing as many new gun models, as Ruger has of late. And in my experience, their Customer Service is excellent.
Bill is dead. Long live Ruger.
This new rifle would be of interest to me, if they made higher capacity mags for it, say 10 rounds. Sort of a poor man's Scout rifle.
Ruger needs to make some affordable pump and semi auto shotguns!

As earlier stated I am a fan of Ruger, I can't speak to the AWB issue or Bill Ruger, but I have found Ruger to always put out a good product and stand behind it 100%. I think they have a diverse - but very useful - bullpen of firearms and I hope they continue to keep coming up with fun ideas.

That's why I like the shooting community. Diversity! Thank you all for your input. We may disagree but at least it's with reason and respect.

I'm still holding out for someone to make a box magazine fed, American made, shotgun. My personal dream is that Ruger makes it, and bases it off the Mini-14/30. A guy can dream, right?
Bill's been dead for years now, we can't hold the direction they went in under him against the company anymore. It's been said on here before, if you're gonna do that, make sure you never buy any guns from Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Russia, etc, as they were all our enemies at one time too.
Back on topic, the rifle does like pretty interesting, but it's not something I'd personally be intersted in. My Cx4 covers me for a mid range plinker quite nicely, and it shares the same magazines as my Px4.

December 25 1981 my wife gave me a Ruger Model 77 for Christmas.
I killed a nice herd of deer & a pickup full of "varmits" in the last 30 years with that rifle, & I bought & sold a small gunsafe full of other rifles since then,but Ive always hung on to that Ruger 30/06. Guess I always will, something about it.
Anyone needing a good hunting rifle should maybe give this new Ruger rifle a hard look.

I had a Ruger Super Blackhawk that I really liked. Wife took it out of spite when she left 15 years ago.

I'd trade my mass-production, inexpensively made Glock 30 for the"junk" .41 Magnum Blackhawk someone stole from me years back. I can pick up anoth G30 tomorrow. The BH? Not so easily.

I disagree strongly. Ruger makes good solid firearms.

Bill Ruger has been dead for about 12 years now. The company has actually improved dramatically since he assumed room temperature. I just wish he would have croaked sooner.
