Thanks not only goes to Lipseys for responding to requests but obviously Ruger as well for recognizing a good thing when it's staring at them. I think something often missed in this discussion of special distributor runs vs regular production--especially by Lipseys buyers dismayed "that Ruger would do that"--is that the Lipseys type runs provide a valuable pre-view test run for Ruger as to the potential viability for regular production follow-up. I'm sure that is on Ruger's "mind" from the get go. We shouldn't be surprised, and most of us should be delighted.
This is not cool!
I have a pair of Lipsey's 4 5/8" blued ones. Now I gotta decide what to trade/sell to get a SS one? And to make it even tougher they discontinued the SS 45 Colt BH, so I'm reluctant to let one of those go now.
