When a company like Ruger decides to make an AR variant, it indicates to me that either A) hell has just frozen over or B) Glock is so far behind the times that it's not even funny.

Fish scale serrations and light dimpling does nothing for me.

I want a Glock carbine, dammit.

right...glock should stop making only pistols so that they can have more recalls


i mean...who cares that they are doing so well that they are hundreds of thousands of firearms behind in production. they really need to step it up soon otherwise they will be bankrupt

or that D) the new Ruger management wanted to show that they are doing their best to reverse/get away from Bill Ruger's support for gun control (ie. "no honest man needs more than 10 rounds in any gun", "I never meant for simple civilians to have my 20 or 30 round magazines or my folding stock", "I see nothing wrong with waiting periods").

I reckon Ruger couldn't match Glock in performance, popularity or sales so to save the company they had to change direction. They tapped out:dunno:

dont know if they ever will. but i would lay money that if glock ever makes any kind of carbine or ar type rifle they would likely be sold out and back ordered within a week or release.

C) Ruger's marketing guys are so incompetent that they decide to jump into an already saturated market (albeit one experiencing a very temporary surfeit of buyers) with a product of yet-to-be-determined quality.

Much like Sig, the "new" Ruger quality is perhaps not up to the same standard as the old Ruger. Seems they're trying to be all things to all people and in the process their quality diminishes. Note the recent recalls on LCPs and SR9s. I applaud them for breaking out of their same-old same-old mold of the past 20 years -- but condemn them for rushing out new product which the consumer must test because they fail to do due diligence with regard to testing new products prior to marketing them.

Glock is a manufacturer of semi-automatic handguns. Ruger makes revolvers and boat anchors.

I'm sure Ruger didn't even think about Glock (a pistol company) when they decided to produce an AR. I am a big Glock fan myself, but it takes a vivid imagination to start a Ruger versus Glock battle just because Ruger is entering the AR market. Some people on this forum remind me of that three steps to Kevin Bacon game. By the way, Ruger produces and sells more firearms than Glock.

I'm betting on the first recall in 120 days!
Any takers?

Hummmm.... a $2000 piston AR... Seems pretty pricey for a Ruger. I wonder how long until the recall? I'll bet Ruger will ship it with a pre-paid return label to save time...


:rofl:
