The following was posted today on a black powder forum (The High Road/Tools and Technologies/Black Powder Shooting):
PResident of Ruger is in town for a promotion at a local store. Said although no longer listed in the catalogue, they are still making the gun. Roughly 85 frames left in the factory and a few completed guns. Several guns still in the hands of distributors. Said if you find a dealer that buys direct from Ruger or one of the bigger distributors they can get a new gun for you WHILE SUPPLIES OF FRAMES LAST.
