    My son is finishing up his two week National Guard training and I'm going to get him an AR15 as a token of my appreciation for his service. While shopping at the local gun shop, (I'll wait until he is back before purchasing) I noticed a couple of Ruger Mini-14's. Ranch style and tactical. I was drawn to the ranch style version. Something about the hardwood stock. Really liked the feel and the size of the rifle. 5/20/30 round mags are available. We currently have no .223/5.556mm in our collection and gun shop will give a generous discount on a...

    If you sadly live in New Jersey, New York, Maryland or Massachusetts and actually like firearms, your list of legal AR-15s can probably fit on the bar napkin you drink your sorrows away on. OK, that is slightly over the top, but legal ones are few and far between. Ruger is adding to that list with a new AR-556 with a MonsterMan grip. Some notable features, or modifications depending on how you look at it, that make it legal in the aforementioned states are: -Threaded Barrel (1/2″ x 28 TPI) w/ Thread Protector [No Flash Hider or Muzzle Device]...

    Bill Ruger would have turned 100 years old in 2016, and even though he is gone I believe that he would have been quite impressed with the innovative Ô¨Ārearm designs that continue to appear on pages of his namesake company's annual catalog. Unlike Colt, Smith & Wesson, Remington and Winchester, which were all operating in the 1800s, the Ruger brand is relatively new. But in just over 60 years, Ruger guns have earned a spot near the top of all American gun manufacturers. In Ô¨Ārearms manufacturing terms that¬ís a meteoric rise, and it doesn't seem to be slowing. The American...

    Are you with that crowd that is still sitting on the fence figuring if you're gonna buy an AR? Or, maybe you decided that you wanted to invest in one but not sure of which brand? Or, you did get one but still not sure if you got the right AR15? You can go cheap to high end. Obviously, the good cheap are Ruger, M&P and others. High End would probably be Daniel Defense or Cobalt Kinetics. Or, you can let this guy from Wrangler Star Youtube explain his reasoning for going with a DDM4V7, yeh its a Daniel Defense...

  • Ruger Introduces One-Button Takedown Mark IV Pistol

    Daily Caller ^ | September 26, 2016 | From AMERICAN RIFLEMAN
    Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has announced the highly anticipated, heavily redesigned Ruger Mark IV pistol. While the pistol maintains the same classic outward appearance as the Mark III, its simple, one-button takedown for quick and easy field-stripping will be a welcome and appreciated change for fans of this model. A recessed button in the back of the frame allows the upper receiver to tilt up and off of the grip frame without the use of tools. The bolt simply slides out of the receiver and the barrel can be properly cleaned from chamber to muzzle. ďWe are thrilled to...

    Ruger announced the company is now selling ďstate compliantĒ versions of the AR-556 rifle. The new guns will lack some of the basic features of a common AR-15 rifle. Among the changes to this gun are: reduced capacity magazine (10-rounds) fixed length of pull stock (it retains an M-4 style look) non-threaded barrel

    Ever since their beginnings in 1948, the Israeli Defense Force has had to think outside the box to come up with weapon's systems, therefore it shouldn't surprise you that for the past 20 years the Israelis have used a (much-modified) 10/22 for use in both special operations and in security operations. (A gently modded 10/22 with IDF forces in 2000) The background Going back to 1987, the IDF purchased a quantity of Ruger 10/22s for use by security forces in the Palestinian Intifada, a violent uprising in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that led to a number of deaths...

    Georgia-based PolyCase to manufacture handgun, pistol bullets Sturm, Ruger & Co. is getting into the ammunition business for the first time, partnering with a Georgia company to produce what it calls a ďrevolutionary bulletĒ that ďchanges everything you know about ammo.Ē Ruger, which is headquartered in Connecticut but has a major facility in Newport, will be putting its brand on bullets produced by Savannah-based PolyCase Ammunition LLC for a .45-caliber handgun and .38-caliber pistol.

  • The New Ruger SR-556 Takedown

    My first look at this rifle came a couple of years ago while we were filming segments for the Ruger Inside & Out television show at Gunsite. Shown to me with warnings of great secrecy, the switch-barrel version of Rugerís SR-556 was said to have been in development for several years as the engineers and production folks at Ruger worked out the kinks in producing a gas piston, removable barrel rifle. The rifle I was shown then had two barrels, one in 5.56 and the other in .300 Blackout and we had a bit of fun shooting the .300 barrel...

    Valley News ^ | 03/08/2015 | John Lippman
    Gun maker Sturm, Ruger & Co. posted an unusual loss during the fourth quarter, dragged down by a $41 million charge related to the termination and settlement of the companyís defined benefit pension plan that Ruger had flagged earlier would depress its bottom line. At the same time, Ruger said gun sales were again lower in the fourth quarter than prior year levels, reflecting an industry-wide slowdown following exceptionally robust sales throughout 2012 and 2013. Firearm sales, particularly of handguns, have slowed nationally after President Obama was unable to push through new gun-control legislation. But now, after cutting production levels...

    Sturm, Ruger & Company (RGR) stock tumbled after the gunmakerís quarterly earnings missed analystsí target by a laughably wide margin, proving definitively that the gun-sales boom driven by fears of the Obama administration is at an end. As great a run as RGR stock had during the Obama presidency ó and especially after the shooting in Newtown ó itís over. Thereís nothing left to do but sell RGR stock and book profits. . . . . Heck, RGR stock is up nearly 600% since Obama took the oath of office, and thatís after a nasty selloff in 2014. Before the...

    Seeking advice from experienced shooters. I am considering a New Rifle. I am in Alaska and the gun will spend a lot of time on a boat. I want something compact, light and semi-auto. I am trying to decide between an AR pattern or a Garand style action. I would prefer a .308 but the wife will likely be using it as much or more than me and her vote is for the Mini14. I think that is too light a caliber, and .223/5.56 ammo is hard to come by locally. Any way, the Mini14 is half the price of...

    The progressive liberal has shown through their actions and ideology that they seek above all else, control. The very thought of individual enterprise or liberty is anathema to them as it goes against their desire for an all-powerful state to which all citizens owe their allegiance and blind faith. Of course, they'll be the ones ruling as they obviously know what is best for us common peasants. How can we expected to make decisions on our own without their benevolent guidance and wisdom? The left has many weapons in their arsenal against freedom, and one of the most potent is...

    A new gun law proponents say helps law enforcement has driven Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger out of California, and affirmed the suspicions of firearms rights advocates that the measure is really about making handguns obsolete. The two companies have announced they will stop selling their wares in the nationís most populous state rather than try to comply with a law that requires some handguns to have technology that imprints a tiny stamp on the bullet so it can be traced back to the gun. The companies, and many gun enthusiasts, say so-called ďmicrostampingĒ technology is unworkable in its...
