    Don't have any info on it other than I 'heard' it was going to be .38+P.
    Let's talk it up. I like the looks!

    Looks interesting enough. I will try to get my hands on one at SHOT and let folks know what they feel like. Always good to see a new addition to the snubby revolver market. It certainly "looks" different.

    Wow they are announcing it the day before the Shot Show opens.

    I saw one other reference to it, supposed to be a combination of polymer and aluminum frame with steel cylinder and barrel insert.

    But like most Rugers, I'll wait a year or more till they get the recalls and bugs worked out.

    Just buy it..if they do have recall..they will shipped it from/to you for FREE.
    Plus they always throw in a new mag or some other Ruger goodies!
    Who knows the price of firearm will be once the new administration is in place~:rolleyes:

    Ruger is just AWESOME!

    I love RUGER revolvers, but..........

    I will NEVER buy a polymer wheel-gun.

    Period.

    Plus......It has a LOCK!!!! :-(

    S&W is finally getting rid of the much hated locks, and Rugers adding them. WTF??? :confused:

    Is it just me, or does it look like a 4 shot revolver to keep it thin?

    13.5oz unloaded weight (ouch...+P loads should be fun!!)...

    5-shot 38spl +P in a Stainless Steel Cylinder...

    Aluminum frame with a polymer grip/fire control housing/trigger guard...

    Hogue grip model and a Crimson Trace model will be available...

    I can't wait to see this thing on Saturday. Looks promising, but like vafish said...I am sure ti will have its share of bugs that need worked out.
