Wow-why does Ruger keep producing new stuff I want but can't afford!! Very nice- wonder what the real world price will settle down to be? Thanks Jeff for the excellent notification and review.

Nice, and looks like they picked the right style of mags to use, as well.

They may have thought someone wanted to shoot long range or even moderate 300+ yds.

I like that signature, very true.

Can't buy it here in S.C. either... at least not at $2,200 freaking dollars......

what ever happened to a gun the regular guy can afford?

It seems to me like semi-auto 'assault' rifles are going the same route as select fire ones... only the rich can afford them.

Did somebody mention firepower? I guess that is for taking out 6 or 7 (deer) when they are attacking you. :D :D

JMO, but, Ruger, how about doing a 6.8 SPC version? Again! :-)

BTW, anyone observed the cost of and seemingly difficult to find 308 ammo? There have to be better ammo choices...............DUH! I sold a mint circa 1981 HK 91 for this reason.... :!:

Just as a sidelight, I never had trouble getting 6.8 SPC rounds for my Mini-14.

Interesting gun, but I don't see much of a market....but I could be wrong.
Anyhow, I wish 'em luck.

Haven't seen anything posted here on the new .308/7.62Nato SR-762 http://www.ruger.com/products/sr762/index.html. I just got the email this morning. Maybe not for everyone but it sure looks nice. Here is the Gunblast article on it.

I sure would like to shoot one prior to purchase. Looks to me like this thing is going to try and remove your shoulder due to the non padded collapsible stock. :shock:

What do you think??
