Get your Order on the books now if you can.  The Ruger Rep at one of the LGS says that these were supposed to sell for $1200 or so and that they're not happy for the ones that sold for at/under $1000.  I'd see if you can lock your price in now.

    I got to handle one of these during lunch today at Cabelas.  It was chambered in .308.  The gun was lighter than I was expecting.  The forearm rail seemed nice and light.  The bolt was slick and had a nice knob.   You could cycle this thing very fast.

    One thing that I did not like was that the PMAG, when empty, would not let bolt close.  The feed on the ramp would stick up in the path of the bolt and block it from closing.  This could present problems if you had to single feed.

    I also tried out the trigger.  Better than I expected.  It was light and crisp.  Not as nice as my 8oz/8oz two stage trigger on my 10/22 but it it was clean and crisp.  The trigger safety was a little mushy, but once you got to the actual trigger, it was crisp.

    Can't wait till my gun actually comes in.

    Just realized you could use the other PMAG offerings like the AICS and the SR25 and not have the bolt hold open issue.

    Very nice looking rifle!  :thumbup1

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Is the camo a factory option or did he get that done afterward?

    Thought I might want one in .260, but now leaning toward the 6.5 Creedmoor.  Now that I've seen the downrange ballistics, the BC up in the .600 range of the 130-140 grain match bullets is incredible.  Either the .260 or the 6.5 will push those bullets to 2,800-2900 range, but the Creedmoor just seems right.

    I'm just waiting for someone to rebarrel the rifle. I want to know if it's as easy as a Savage.
