There are a variety of cheaper assault rifles you can get out there, but if you're looking for quality, and a rifle with a unique design, then you can't go wrong with the Ruger SR-762.

  5. Ruger CEO Gives Support to Pending California Lawsuit

Image from Guns If you haven\'t heard, the state of California is in the middle of fully implementing a microstamping law that would require gun manufacturers to use microscoping engravings on the firing pin for ballistics identification at crime scenes, a that was law signed into effect under former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007.

  6. Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan

    The CEO of Ruger dubbed the Alaskan an outdoorsman revolver for hunting big game, and this would be an accurate description. In another article, I highlighted the Super Redhawk revolver, and there is no real difference between the standard piece and the Alaskan version. You'll get the same caliber choices of .44 or .454 Casull, and the same specs. For a snub-nosed piece, it is a frame heavy and thick in composition, but this is a gun if you like the Super Redhawk, but not be so keen on the...
  7. Ruger SP-101 Standard

    In my last two articles, I profiled some good long-barreled hunting revolvers, but I'd thought I'd switch things up a bit by profiling a good conceal-carry weapon, the Ruger SP-101.

Whereas the GP-100 has six shots, you mostly get 5 shots with the SP-101, but you can also get an 8-shot out of the .22 LR. You can also get a 6-shot in .327 Federal Magnum (an updated...

    Like the Red Superhawk, the Hunter series is designed for big game hunting. It comes with integral scope mounts and rings, with adjustable and front ramp sight to contend with elevation and wind. The trigger pull on the Hunter weighs in at around six pounds. This piece falls under the New Model Super Blackhawk within the Hunter series. The New Model Hunter Blackhawk is essentially modeled after the standard piece, but better suited for rifling. With the Ruger Hunters, you'll also get the...
  9. Ruger Super Redhawk

    If you're a fan of long-barreled revolvers like I am, then you'll come to appreciate the fine craftsmanship and power of the Ruger Super Redhawk. This double-action gun comes in .480, .454/.45 and .44 calibers, and the Super Redhawk Alaskan, a snub-nose revolver of the same model, also comes in .44, .480 and .454/.45. For the standard piece, the overall length of the gun is 13 inches, with a barrel length of 7.5 inches, but the .44 Magnum can also come with a 9.5 inch barrel, and a 15 inch...
