Ruger Gunsite Polymer Magazines

Ruger Polymer magazineRuger is now making polymer magazines for the Gunsite scout rifle.  One of the complaints about the metal magazines was the price:  $70 for the 10 round mag.  I like the Gunsite scout rifle, but at $70/mag it is a non-starter for me.  Sorry, but I’m not dropping $70 for a .308 rifle magazine.

Fortunately, Ruger wasn’t blind to the issue.  To resolve the cost problem, Ruger is now manufacturing polymer magazines of three, five and ten round capacities.  While not cheap, the polymer mags are much more reasonable at $39.95 each.  I can’t say that a retail price of $40 is appealing, but it is certainly less horrific than $70.
