I believe this little item was given out as the 2005 Christmas gift to Ruger employees. Anyone know how many were produced? Just curious as I just picked up another. :D

Yes, Ruger's official for total number of employees at the end of 2005 was 1,250, so I suppose there were a few more than that but probably not many.

Does it have something to do with the "flyer" Ruger has
had around in the past??

C'mon, YOU don't have one of these?

Nope, I'm a poor excuse for a memorabilia collector. Now, like my Avatar image, if the item fits in with a particular display's theme......

Yup, that's them! Sorry, wife had the camera as usual. What's neat about 'em is if you set them on a lighted base the 3D image inside really stands out.

I'm glad someone posted a pic of one,, as I was gonna have to dig out my camera, find my crystal, and try & get a good pic. Mine was given to me by Steve Sanatti.

These are seldom seen as most employees don't sell gifts received from their employer. Now I know of at least 5 in private hands. I think I paid around $75 for mine. I've seen tables full of them with all kinds of different scenes (not Ruger) for $12.95. Just goes to show you what "nuts" us Ruger collectors are!

Not all employees keep their gifts. I'd say that about 10% sell them about as quick as they get them,, knowing us crazy Ruger collectors want them,,!

I do know the whereabouts of one, If the person still has it if anyone is interested. Let me now and I'll make a call. I believe they are asking $75.00. Hank
