yep, you read it right. I know it exists b/c I fondled it greatly today in my own two paws. It's located at Mt. View Sports in Anchorage for anyone that wants it. I was also in another dealer's shop later today and mentioned what I had seen. He said there was no such thing and then looked in his Ruger dealer's paperwork to confirm it. He then showed my the latest catalog listings for 2010 and proved that it was not listed in SS by Ruger, only blue for a new model, not a flattop. Mountain View Sports has a price of $595.00 on it. It has the black grips and was darn sure hard to walk away from today. That barrel length balances so nice, I'm tempted to go back and get it.......(I better get off of here and think about something else)....The only way I was able to walk away without it is because I got one of the Lipsey blue models 3 months ago.
