    And yet I'm seeing more and more Rugers in the stores. I see plenty of 10/22s and MKIII pistols.

    I would expect the 1911 and commander to be to be at the top of the list model wise. All steel guns take much longer to machine, so you can't crank out tons a day. The other top models would be all the newer releases. The back order isn't from individual purchasers ordering a gun it's from distributors ordering tens of thousands when new models are released.

    In the pre panic, pre Dear Leader days, the big distributors like RSR would as you say, have literally thousands and thousands of guns of many different models. Maybe, if this nation wakes up and gets socialist presidents out of office, things will return to normal. Don

    They may not be able to keep them in the warehouse in those numbers but they are still ordering them by those numbers. Simply economics, the more of something you order the bigger a discount you get on the cost of each individual item. I wouldn't doubt that when Ruger showed the distributors the American Rimfire, that within a week they had orders for over 100,000 of them.
