Sturm, Ruger & Co. announced the addition of a new rifle to the 10/22 line: the 10/22 Takedown Lite. The new rifle combines the features of the company’s existing take down rimfire rifle with the company’s modular stock and a lighter weight barrel assembly.
As rumored, Ruger announced its new line of handguns called the American Pistol. The new handguns are an impressive addition to the Ruger catalog, and I expect the guns will be extremely hot sellers. I also expect the guns will be a contender for the upcoming US military trials. In general terms, the American Pistol […]
Ruger quietly updated the SR-556 Takedown rifle during Christmas week. The main, and perhaps only, change to the gun was the replacement of the heavy quad-rail handguard with a lighter KeyMod type. The quad-rail equipped rifle tipped the scales at 7.6 pounds, while the new one shaves off a a full half-pound to drop the rifle’s weight […]
Ruger announced a new version of the LCR chambered for the .327 Federal Magnum cartridge. The new revolver is the exact gun that should have been introduced with the round in 2008 – but will it sell in 2015?
Ruger is now selling two new pistols: a blue anodized version of the 22/45 Lite and a semi-custom LCP with much improved sights.

The new Lightweight Commander uses an […]
I’ve just pre-ordered a new history book for my gun bookshelf: The Gun Digest Book of Ruger Revolvers. I saw a press release on this book earlier in the week, and just took a look at it on Amazon. Amazon has a great feature that allows you to review parts of the book prior to […]
Ruger announced a number of new gun models including a new DA/SA version of the LCR called the LCRx. One deviation from prior Ruger product announcements is that some of the guns are not ready to ship immediately. In the past, when Ruger announced a new firearm, the gun was already in production. Some of […]
Two short months before the annual SHOT Show, Ruger announced the release of the new SR-762 rifle. Maintaining the overall look and feel of the AR platform, the new Ruger SR-762 rifle is chambered in 7.62×51 (aka .308 Win) and uses a piston system similar to the company’s original SR-556 rifle. The rifle appears to […]
