  • The Ruger Mini 14 in Military Use

    In the late 1960s when L. James Sullivan and William B. Ruger were kicking around a scaled down version of the M14 rifle, they did not originally think of it as a military gun. This 'Mini-14' used a similar action and operating techniques as the old M1 Garand, but fired the more subtle .223 Remington round in a detachable magazine. This helped make the gun a commercial success in 1973 when it was introduced, as legions of former citizen soldiers were familiar with the design. Thinking that...

Speed loader 101 The first revolver speed loader patented was that of William H Bell in 1879. Bell's device was a simple metal disk with a rotating locking mechanism that held six revolver rounds.

  • Ruger reaches back in the vault for the new and improved .327 wheelgun

    America's favorite gun maker is reaching back into the creative closet and bringing forth a blast from the past that has some six-shooter aficionados rejoicing. Yes, we are talking about the return of the SP-101 in .327 Fed Mag. Why 327? Introduced through a partnership by Sturm, Ruger and Federal Cartridge in 2007, the .327 Federal Magnum uses the rimmed, straight-walled .32 H&R case with a very lightweight .312 caliber bullet (typically 100 grains) to generate a screamer of a round that...
  • Ruger's budget falling block: The No. 3 rifle

  3. The Ruger LCRx now comes in 3-inch!

    It wasn't too long ago that Ruger released the double-action LCR revolver to rave reviews. Then came the LCRx which gave the masses what they wanted-- an exposed hammer. Then came the 5-round, 9mm Luger version that utilized moon clips, and still boasted the standard 1.875 inch barrel in length. This short barrel, while convenient for concealed carry, often doesnt do much for accuracy. Well, that has changed. Now comes the LCRx with the great compromise that is a 3-inch barrel. Designed...

  6. Ruger Introduces Single-Seven Chambered in .327

    With the goal of providing the power of a .357 Magnum in a smaller cartridge marketed for self-defense, Ruger introduced the .327 Federal Magnum, or .327 Fed mag for short, several years ago. Said to have less recoil and muzzle blast, the .327 round was also meant as an improvement upon the .32 H&R Magnum which in itself came about to improve the .32 S&W cartridge. Over the years these cartridge changes accounted for a difference in length and velocity, stepping up from 15,000 psi to the...

  13. New Bearcat on the Block: The Bearcat Shopkeeper

    Back in the early 1970's, some changes were on the horizon for Ruger. Namely, their patented transfer bar safety was changed, meaning a redesign of single action revolvers at the same time.

After this change took place, both the alloy Bearcat and steel Super Bearcat fell to the wayside, becoming guns of the past. This remained the case for approximately 20 years, at which point...
