Ruger Introduces Eye-Popping Pistol, Fancy Rifle Distributor Exclusives

6804

Ruger has introduced four new distributor exclusives available from AccuSport, Lipsey’s, and Gallery of Guns. The two new LCP finishes will come from Gallery of Guns featuring your choice of Kryptek Neptune camo on the frame or the eye-popping Kryptek Pontus camo. Moth pistols will feature a blued slide, black controls, and what appears to be color filled warnings on the frames. Both pistols will carry an MSRP of $309 making them a reasonable price option if you decide you need a pocket gun while scuba diving.

The next gun on the list is a beautiful walnut stocked Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle. I personally want one of these guns with blued metal tucked into their green laminate stock, one of these days I might get my hands on one. If you are after a stainless gun with a walnut stock, Lipsey’s has you covered with the GSR chambered in .308 Winchester. The rifle will come standard with a flash hider, 10 round magazines, adjustable sights, and a forward mounted rail to keep true to Col. Cooper’s vision.

Lastly, the Ruger 77/44 chambered in .44 Remington Magnum is being offered by AcuSport in a beautiful American Walnut stock with some nice checkering and a blued finish. The 77/44 tips the scales at a scant 5.2 pounds and features a 4 shot rotary magazine.

    Flash hider aside, that GSR has some charm.

    • Gus Butts

      I agree. I am pretty sure that a lot of people have been wanting some wood on a GSR ever since it first got announced and it looks damn good with it.
      With that finish, those iron sights, scout rail, short barrel, flash hider, and bottom metal, it looks like a cool mix of modern and old. I think. But I like it.

      • William Nelson

        Amen. Blued with wood is the only way to fly.

        Throw a Mannlicher style option for the platform and I’d be happier than Paula Deen at a butter convention (flash hider would have to go but that’s okay too). Would love to have something newer that looks almost as good as my Swede Mauser carbine.

        • Gus Butts

          Can you guys get the 18.5″-barreled version with no threads that we get in Canada?

          • William Nelson

            Honestly don’t know. All I’ve seen is the type with flash hiders.

          • Travis

            The flash suppressor could be removed and a thread protector installed to make it look like it is not threaded

          • Not that I’m aware of.

          • Stan Darsh

            No, but we can get the 18.5″ bbl version WITH a flash hider. It doesn’t look like Ruger offers it thread-less in the US.

        • Bill

          Agreed: why put a weather-resistant action in a sponge stock.

          And I’m stealing your Paula Dean line.

        • Tim

          Sounds like you need a CZ 550 Mannlichr stock in .308…..it takes 10-round magazines, too, and costs ~$200 less than a GSR.

          • William Nelson

            …why yes, yes I do need that! Gracias, amigo!

        • Anonymoose

          >not bluing your stainless steel
          Also, I’d get the Mannlicher option, put an XS full-length scope rail on it, and keep the flash hider, to be replaced by a suppressor at some point.

    • thedonn007

      That is a good looking rifle. I would make a nice suppressor host. I went cheap and got a savage axis in .308 with a factory threaded barrel.

      • Pete – TFB Writer

        I just can’t get used to the scout-style scope setup. If I could, I’d be tempted to jump on one of these.

        • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

          I have a GSR with a Leupold VXR Scout scope on it. It’s a fantastic combo. It felt weird at first, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

          If you’re ever in SoCal you’re welcome to check it out.

        • Anonymoose
          • Pete – TFB Writer

            I did NOT need to see that… But thanks.

          • Anonymoose

            Enough space to put a magnified Eotech or a PVS-22 on there…

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      Swap FH with suppressor = win.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      So glad I sold mine. Replaced it with a Tikka CTR that does EVERYTHING better. The GSR was a great way to move a medicore action at the height of “wait, I can own a silencer!?”

      You can doll them up, but at the end of the day, it’ll never been a precision rifle. I’d recommend a red dot or even irons and not scope it at all.

      East Coast deer hunting it would be great, but still never a precision rifle. The AAC 700 is even a far better gun at the same or less cost.

      • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

        The GSR isn’t supposed to be a precision rifle. It’s supposed to be a utility rifle that does a bit of everything from hunting 4-legged critters to defending against 2-legged critters within a few hundred yards. It’s also supposed to be compact and light enough to carry.

        The GSR excels at all of those things.

        And while it might not be a long range precision rifle, they’re more than capable of holding 1MOA precision all day long.

        • James Thompson

          My laminate stocked GSR 308 holds 1MOA with Fgmm 175’s. I think i can do a bit better with handloads. What kind of precision shooting are you doing that 1MOA is not HONESTLY not going to cut it?

          1moa is smaller than a man sized target at 1,000 yards.

          • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

            I think you meant to respond to the other guy.

      • Giolli Joker

        Well, I can believe it, it doesn’t look like it is marketed as a precision rifle. Still it looks good.
        Any experience with the Ruger Precision Rifle?

    • nova3930

      flash hider just means “suppressor ready” 😀

  • Thamuze Ulfrsson

    The pistols look garbo, the rifles look rad.

  • Renegade

    That 77/44 is purrrrty.

  • cmorrow

    Already have a GSR, but I really wish that walnut stock would be available 3rd party.

  • Cal S.

    I’d SCUBA dive with that. Heck, I’d SCUBA dive with anything, I don’t need much of an excuse…

  • Harry’s Holsters

    That 77/44 is a sexy gun! The weight give it a lot of appeal. With a light weight stock it may be able to get under 5 pounds.

    • J.T.

      It will be a great little deer rifle for states like Ohio that only allow rifles if they are chambered in straight-wall cartridges.

      • Twilight sparkle

        It would also be fairly punishing on pigs down here in Texas. I’ve used a model 94 trapper in 44 mag on pigs here and that round is a bit of a thumper.

  • Bill

    Actually, “moth camo” might be kind of cool.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    They did a great job uglying up those pistols.

  • john huscio

    Wish they’d make a scout in 30.06 at a decent (sub $700) price….. id be all over that…..

    • Blake

      Pretty hard to make a long-action 30-06 light enough to fit the “scout” concept.

      • gusto

        what is new about the Henry?

        Browning has been doing it for 50 years with the BLR!

        it can’t accept 10round magazines but otherwise. light, handy and suprisingly accurate. the only rifle I will never sell

        atleast with cold bore shots, the thin barrels heats up quickly

        • Blake

          Yep, BLR is another nice option, & available in a few more calibers than the Henry (maybe Henry called it the “HLR” as a direct competitive reference to the BLR…)

          Personally I think I prefer the made-in-USA Henry vs. the made-in-Japan BLR, but I’ve yet to see a direct comparison review between the two… Maybe TFBTV could step up to the plate?

  • Paul White

    I really like the blue color LC9s; pair it with a stainless slide and I’d buy one, even thought I’ve got a totally fine black LC9s

  • Gary Kirk

    Kryptek pontus, for when you need to camo your gun on Pandora…

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    Well that’s unfair. I already have a GSR and 77/44. That wood sure is pretty though…..

  • HenryV

    The 77/44 is lush.

  • Was too impatient for the seafoam green LCP, so I made my own.

  • Treyh007

    I’ve always like the GSR, I think this one takes the cake! 👍🏻👍🏻

  • CupAJoe

    Dear ruger, I need a take down 10/357, it needs to accept my 77/357 mag and you need to make 10-25 round mags as well. Thank you.

    • CupAJoe

      I’d also accept a 10/357 charger as an alternative…

  • S. Plankenberg

    A little longer barrel would be nice.

    The muzzle blast from .308 with a 16 or 18 inch barrel is horrendous.

  • dltaylor51

    Ruger;Bring back the original 1962 deerstalker 44 mag carbine,dont change a thing because Bill got it right from the get go.

  • CountryBoy

    “Moth pistols will feature a blued slide, black controls…”

    What are “moth pistols”? Is that another term for “bug zapper”?
