  1. This could possibly reflect that since Bill Ruger is dead, those of us who AREN’T Bill Ruger’s “honest man” and want more than 10 rounds will now buy from them. Note, too, that since Bill Ruger is dead, they’ve been making smaller and more concealable firearms. (Ever try to conceal a P90 or P85? Please.)

    Bill Ruger was a strange contradiction – a genius for making solid firearms like the 10/22… and bullheadedly stubborn about not fixing their faults (Bolt release, magazine release, crappy sights and awful trigger). And we won’t discuss his fetish for low capacity magazines. Oh, wait… I already did.
