    My GSR is a left-hand model.

    From reading extensive comments in various places, it appears that Ruger had some problems with incompatible steel alloys in early production which led to rather rough operation. It now seems that the problems have been solved.

    My GSR, being a lefty, was built quite a while after the introduction of the model. RIGHT FROM THE BOX, the action was/is very smooth, and the trigger is a perfect, crisp 3.5 pounds.... I've never had the rifle out of the stock, which is most unusual for this ol' rifleman. It's as smooth as any Mauser in my racks, which amount to a fair number of rifles.

    I cannot abide the forward-mounted sight, but my GSR seems quite content with its Redfield 3-9X mounted on the receiver. Rhis was a nod toward my aging eyes.

    I LIKE this rifle!

    My GSR isn't nearly as smooth as my other 77's likely a result of the new bead blast "finish" but with a little grease and some use its limbering up nicely

    Buzz,
    The instructors were Il Ling, Mario, and one other.
    As I have said before, it was an excellent class. Some of the other students were current Gunsite instructors, and a couple of hi-profile industry members. As you know the program, it is indeed very solid instruction. I will be going back for additional classes as time permits.

    Split,

    Sounds great. Never had them as instructors, but everyone there is friendly, knowledgable, and totally professional, from the staff to Karen at registration to Susan at the Pro Shop to the lunch crew. I just really enjoy myself every time I drive under that raven gate!

    Great rifle, handy, accurate and quick. Any optic capable and tough as nails.

    My only hesitation in getting a scout bolt action was that I fell in love with 30-30 lever action with a scout scope. I also have a 30-06 bolt action with a 4x scope. Given those two rifles, my live of the lever action, and tight funds, I just can't seem to talk myself into the scout. Had the Ruger GSR come out a few years sooner or my dealer had a Styer scout in stock I would have probably gone in that direction initially.
