I checked the Ruger website this morning and it states that "Ruger has undoubtedly created the next firearm that you absolutely must own!".

It then states to check back Monday January 3rd at 2:00 PM.

Any thoughts? I'm hoping for a PF9 clone this time. :)

Man, I would have to buy one! I like the LCP just fine, but wouldnt mind a truly compact 9mm!!

Dont care for the SR9c. The SR9 is nice, the compact is just akward to me.

probably another AR15 or 1911...because ruger is just that innovative!

Got an email on the 1st saying that they'll tell me what it is tomorrow.

Today, I get what's posted above, which is "we'll really tell you Monday....probably...."

I googled this and the first entry was another forum. They seemed to think it was a chromed LCP.

The rumor at rugerforum.com is that it will be a polymer framed 1911 with a mag disconnect & a loaded chamber indicator:eek::eek:

My noodles and kabootles are on a somewhat upgraded version of a handgun/rifle that already is produced, and costs more than if you made a comparable model yourself.

Just what the market is crying out for! A plastic 1911 with a bad trigger...

Yeah, because every single other major gun company that builds both AR's and 1911's is way more innovative somehow.

Im hoping for a compact 9mm

Never say never, but I would guess not. SR9c's are selling very well, and it wouldn't make a lot of sense to try and introduce another compact 9mm now. Then again, I am not an industry analyst, so maybe!

They didn't say it was necessarily a handgun insofar as the op's post states. Maybe it's their new "tactical', ten-round, box magazine-fed Model 77 bolt-action they're referring to?

David E
January 2, 2011, 03:59 PM
I got the "Scout rifle" email several days ago, so it would seem this is a different gun.

It wouldn't make much sense to introduce the same gun twice inside a week.

Lol people still buy rugers? Is everyone clueless to what is going on with the LCR with just standard 38 loads?

You want to buy American Buy a SMITH

Put it this way


LCR loses to kel-tec .380 and .32 and the s&w .380 bodyguard

LCR loses to s&w real bodyguard .38 revolver

I can't believe at one point i was looking at buying the SR9 thank god i got my m&p 9c!

Gunsby_Blazen
January 2, 2011, 04:48 PM
you mean the LCP (P=Pistol) loses to Kel Tec... right?
the Kel Tec was out first.

the Bodyguard vs LCR (R=Revolver) is a good comparison except for that laser on the top that is actually kind of flawed my my opinion because of its means of operation (having to cycle through and push a button at the top of the revolver, kind of awkward if you ask me, you have to turn it on by pushing the button on the top, kind of hard in a heat of the moment if you ask me)
the cylinder release is also goofy on the S&W,

the Smith does have a smoother trigger pull than the Ruger but it is still heavier than the Ruger.

when it boils down to it, it is all personal taste...... i wouldn't say the Ruger or the Smith is better than the other
i, for one, wouldn't buy that smith over the Ruger (and i really like S&W)

i did buy an SR9 and i hated it at first, and then i hated it after i installed the Ghost Trigger. trigger still sucked....
i tinkered with it for a while and now i really like it.
smoothed out all the parts that were in contact with each other, realigned the trigger bar (needed to after Ghost installation) , smoothed out the striker indicator and it is a smooth and lighter trigger now. its not really light, but what striker fired pistol is?
its not heavy, and its not light either....

what kind of forum is this? talking about "fanboys" and bashing firearm companies because you own a competition company's product???
i suppose you fellows are not Saf-T-Hammer (S&W) "fanboys"???
i haven't signed into thehighroad for about a year and it turned into this????
:banghead:

you should talk about positive merits and negative properties of individual firearms. discuss the different aspects of the competing products to help folks figure out what would be best for them...

as for what Ruger is coming out with, i have no idea....
my next purchase will be a Bisley in .357 and their new product will have no impact in my decision.
chances are that it will not be all that revolutionary, might be interesting though
i am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and not judge them till i actually see it and then see it perform/handle it myself

My guess is plasma rifle.

357 Terms

I wanna a 7 shot 357 gp100.

Gunsby_Blazen
January 2, 2011, 05:09 PM
they are going to have to go with 8 or more shots in a .357
Smith already has 8 shot revolvers....

but those Smiths are in the 1,000+ price bracket, not the 550-600 range as the GB revolvers
i suspect a Ruger with a 8 shot capacity might be in the 650-700 dollar range... maybe

i would be interested in that....

although i do like the gold bead front sight of that R8 Smith....

its going to be an automatic handgun, not a revolver.... i am betting

I purchased a couple things from the Ruger store online. Since then I get at least 3 emails a week from Ruger. I find it irritating enough that I would buy no matter what it is on the simple fact that I am tired of emails from them.

words on the street is that the Ruger LSJ model is coming out

(light saber, jedi)

i gotta say though if they come out with a polymer framed single stack 1911 without the magazine disconnect, i'd be interested

KodiakBeer
January 2, 2011, 05:50 PM
Why would anyone want a plastic 1911 when there are steel ones going for under $500?

gleaner26
January 2, 2011, 05:54 PM
Maybe someone said this. But could it be some sort of tactical shotgun?:rolleyes: Other wise I'm also thinking 1911.

I have an LCP, which I'm very happy with, but I also wanted a compact 9mm. I bought a Walther PPS, and I couldn't be happier. Try it out if you haven't.

With Ruger's poor machining and quality control, it is no way they can make a fine 1911 without several recall. I guess it will be a SR-9 alike .22 plastic gun because rimfire was how they became well know.

Sorry if I messed anyone up with my comment about a "polymer framed 1911 with a mag disconnect & a loaded chamber indicator". It has been a running joke that someone would say that anytime the topic of a Ruger 1911 came up over at rugerforum.com.

In all honesty I think either a SR40c or a 1911. I hope it isn't a SR40c because I'd like to have one & there is no way I can buy a gun right now.

This thread represents an ugly side of THR thats for sure. Referring to fan boys and making inflaming comments because you like the opposing companies products more is ironic.

Haters will hate I guess, but I will keep buying Ruger products as I have had nothing but good experience with them.

Trigun
January 2, 2011, 06:43 PM
Not really, I know many people stop buying Ruger becasue of issue with their guns. I had a 10-22 lemon, a 2245 good shooter and a NIB SR-9 sitting inside the safe because unable to eject a single round, thankful to the youtube, I may have to take down the slide and have some parts polished, now all this should have done before get out of Ruger's door. But I won't stop buying their gun because I still want a bearcat. But if you are talking about a 1911, it will be tough for them.

I hope it is a 1911 I know I'll be tempted to buy one. Seems one of the rumors I've read somewhere claims Ruger has been making 1911 slides and frames for some other gun company for a while now already.

The built like tank guns are not their new guns. The P series guns, GP100, Sp101 etc... are the guns that established their built like tank rep.

Look at the new product.

SR9, Recalled
LCP, recalled

What was the last new pistol they introduced which was not recalled?

Magnumite
January 2, 2011, 09:06 PM
Wow, lots of negativity. How do you compare a revolver to a semi auto...that is preference based, no comparison. Revolver to revolver - good trigger compared to typical trigger and there is no qualification for condemning a clearly good pistol. Condemn a revolver which was obviously shot with overloaded ammunition then criticize it for gas cutting. Wow, rocket science at its finest.

I have an LCR and nothing to complain about...very nice pistol. Close to 1000 rounds and no hickups at all. No gas cutting. Now S&W has a polymer revolver. Seems like Ruger set the pace for the competition.

A buddy told me he was thinking of getting a new Ruger single stack 45 compact. Maybe he heard about it already:D

Lots of Ruger haters here! My little LCP has been flawless, way better looking and feels better in the hand, than any KT I've owned. And shoots to POA, unlike any KT I've sold;)

They recalled the Single Six once upon a time then fixed it on their dime. All of us who own one know how insignificant they are. Hiccups is hiccups and they happen all the time, especially in an industry that caters to such a varied consumer audience that includes newbies, professionals, purists, technophiles, customizers and reckless fools.

Single Six owner (recalled), Beretta Neos owner (recalled), S&W M&P owner (recalled), Remington 700 owner (not yet recalled). Maybe I'm just more patient or understanding than others...

Not my cup of tea but they seem to be popular and at least have not been recalled like their big brother was. LOL

In the end Ruger just does not do it for me. YMMV

The SR9c is to semiautos what the SP101 is to revolvers.

Its got a long way to go before it earns that rep. Sorry but its still relativity new unproven product which IMHO has none of the simplicity or rugged elegance of the SP101.

I see no need for a chamber loaded indicator. I see no need for an accessory rail on a compact gun. I personally would never buy it do to the mag disconnect which I would never have on a carry gun. Due to its size the SR9c is only good for that.

Again YMMV but with all these negatives for me I see nothing that sparks my interest.

Rugers are fine firearms , i have owned just about every model at one time or another and have never had an issue with any of them. I just recently bought the SR9c and am very impressed with the little pistol .Sometimes recalls happen at least they fix them.
If you want to start a Bashing why don't we use Taurus or Kimber or even Colt every company just mentioned has had issues of some sort.

In one word here is the reason sr9c has a loaded chamber indicator and a mag disconnect. The word is "California". Ruger pistols are one of the few new pistols that can be added to the safe gun roster to be sold in california. California wants all new guns tested to have both features and they expect the loaded chamber indicator to be BIG which it seems ruger has obliged. California is a huge market and most new guns except revolvers won't qualify to be tested for the roster. Mark

Grow up? Simply because someone points out that 2 of the last 3 pistols they brought to market had to be recalled. I did not see anyone state that there was a perfect company.

You like Ruger which you have attested to. Why can't another member state they do nothing for them?

I agree 100% with railroader CA is a huge part of the equation to putting lawyer devices on new pistols.
