Sturm, Ruger & Co.
This video starts with an overview of the features of the new LC9 pistol from Ruger. If you look back to our SHOT Show Sneak Peak post from a few days ago you’ll see that I actually got a chance to shoot this gun, and we also did a post when the gun was released a couple weeks ago.
The other big story from Ruger this year is this .308 Scout Rifle. It has a 16” barrel that comes with a threaded muzzle break and is suppressor ready. Ruger is really thinking their new products through these days and this gun is not exception. It has a front mounted rail for up-head optics, but it could also be used for a forward night vision in front of a regular optic mounted on the regular scope ring rail on the receiver. It is the Ruger Model 77 platform, so a more reliable rifle doesn’t exist, and this light and handy bolt gun comes with a 10 round magazine. This is a feature you don’t see in many bolt guns, and though a lot of bolt rifles make very effective sniper weapons, the three to five round capacity of the magazines make them not so practical for many uses, including a police duty rifle.
