Brand New Ruger SR-762 Rifle

Two short months before the 2014 SHOT Show, Ruger announced the release of the SR-762 rifle.

The new rifle was chambered for the 7.62×51 and .308 Win cartridges, and it used the same type of piston system the company perfected in the SR-556 rifle.

While initial reaction seemed both positive and strong, the gun ultimately fell out of the company’s catalog. While I have no official statement from Ruger, I believe I know why.
