    I think you heard wrong.

    It's the release date for the new BF-LCR, their new polymer-framed .500 Mag. revolver. It seems they are responding to customer feedback that the Alaskan models are just too heavy and lack real stopping power.

    "The BF-LCR will be a perfect blend of the smaller size of the GP-100, the weight of the SP101, and the tremendous power of the .500 Magnum cartridge."

    I believe the frame flexes, a bit, to absorb some of the recoil.

    This will be ground-breaking!

    I just watched the overly-epic flash intro on their website. I couldn't tell you why, but they sure are impressed with themselves.

    Perhaps it's just a new product that won't come w/a free introductory recall?

    Maybe they found a way to make the mini 14 shoot without having to mount a 57 Buick on the end of the barrel.:eek:

    New barrels that will now have stern warnings engraved all the way around instead of just taking up all of one side?

    Maybe they should change the company name to:
    Stern Warnings & Recalls

    Maybe a 25% increase in MSRP across the board?

    Maybe the Super Redhawk Siberian, with a 1" barrel for even more muzzle blast and even worse ballistics, but instead of 3 lbs. it weighs 5 lbs. for even more of that macho feeling when you're fishing?

    A new, improved 10/22, with an all-plastic receiver?

    They're replacing the few remaining wood revolver grips in the lineup with 50 cent pieces of chafing plastic?

    All new Blackhawks will have the New Vaquero frame and one-hand SAA-style grips, so they're no longer comfortable nor strong enough for hot loads?

    A plain-jane American-made SxS for [strike]$1995[/strike] [strike]$2995[/strike] [strike]$3995[/strike] $4995?

    I like my Rugers. Really like. But geez.:)

    I just looked on their site and it says, "Another platform redefined" so I'm going to go out on a limb and guesstimate that it'll be either a 1911, AR, .308 cal M14 variant or perhaps a fighting shotgun. I attended the Shot Show in Orlando and didn't see anything other than what's already being talked about......Perhaps Ruger is just going to bring back the Mk II and kill off the MkIII.
    I guess we'll see on friday about noon.....

    Ruger makes a good product, but I'm still fumin' over ol' Bill selling out American gun owners in 1994. I'm glad that they've changed their politics, maybe I'll buy my first revolver from them!

    Well, I've dug around a bit and supposedly the new Ruger is a long gun, several are talking about a big, long box that DownRange TV has sitting around that Bane is going to test live on Friday....It'd be nice to see an M14 variant....

    LOL

    Yeah, you look at the big animated intro and it reads:

    SR9

    LCP

    LCR

    WHAT NEXT?

    Then the website goes to the normal index page and on the right are two prominent links:

    LCP Recall Update

    SR9 Recall Update

    Seriously, I LIKE Rugers. I currently own 5. I haven't bought an SR9, LCP or LCR, but I might.

    If Ruger makes a good .308 semiauto rifle with rifle balance and fit, and acceptable weight, I might just change the plans for my next gun.

    It's hype that I find amusing.

    yet another "overbuilt" monstrosity that is built that way because they use CAST powdered metal?....How soon will the mandatory recall begin?

    Amazing how some folks who slam Kimber because of MIM parts still love Ruger who uses powdered metal and makes guns heavier than need be to handle the stresses and pressures...... oh well, to each his own.....I gave up on Ruger years ago......ever wonder why so many companies make so many aftermarket barrels, triggers, stocks, etc???......if the original was any good to begin with, there wouldn't be a market

    Well, you have to admit, of the three models that they tout in the Flash animation, two have been recalled, and the third has only been in stores for a few weeks.

    Ah, the horrors of the only inexpensive revolvers that will take the hottest handloads. The horror.:rolleyes:

    BTW my 6 1/2" Blackhawk weighs a few ounces less than my 4 5/8" Colt clone, both in .357. It surprised me, too, but it's the truth, per a very accurate electronic scale.

    So I'm not sure what you're giving up with the "overbuilt" Blackhawk...

    I love my SP101 and its my CW,BUT
    those new models they came out with I'll pass up.
    Remember back 30 years ago
    Colt, Ruger etc....nobody knew what a recall was...because they were made to last a lifetime......
    now maybe 5 years.
