My FFL spent most of last week hunting one of these, and late Friday when it didn't look like she would get one, I bought one on gunbroker. Not 15 minutes later my FFL called letting me know that she had one inbound for me. So I ended up with 2 of these. The one for sale has never been taken out of the plastic. I opened the clam shell enough to make sure everything was there, long enough to note that I liked the natural pattern of the grips more than the ones I am keeping, but did not touch anything inside. Everything is as shipped from Ruger. Asking price is $340 shipped CONUS less Cali, $320 FTF. Would trade for old style 22/45 Competition Target model (6-7/8 or 8" slabside) and may even kick in a little cash for the right Great Eight. Pistol is located in DFW Texas, and I would discount for FTF purchase. I believe this is one of the first 500 RP's shipped. One feature not mentioned in the press is that Ruger added an extended bolt/slide release. A nice feature those that have done the 1911 grip mod on an older 22/45 will appreciate. Here is a photo of the one I am keeping (lower serial number by a couple hundred is how I decided). I plan to let the buyer take the pistol out of the packaging.
