The Ruger website now features a flash animation saying they have developed a project that will redefine a weapons platform. Michael Bane confirms this on his blog:

Got to race down to Boulder to pick up a big ole Ruger box this AM and get to the range…once again, a spectacular new product announcement scheduled for the NRA Show…and, of course, you’ll see it as it happens on DRTV Friday.

He says a “big” box … so maybe it is a long rifle … AR-15? Shotgun? 1911?

I well placed source of mine who has seen the product tells me it is a very cool product! Unfortunately that is all I know, and even if I knew more I would probably not be able to say 🙁 Us plebs will have to wait till the NRA convention to find out.

UPDATE: As many of you noted in the comments. Ruger unveiled a AR-15. Read my coverage here.

    Actually, a .45 ACP semi-auto deerfield type carbine would be cool, since Marlin discontinued the 45 Camp rifle.
