Its cool! I take it its classified as a pistol, not a SBR, due to lack of a stock?

I really like it but I know I'm gonna hate to see the price tag on what is essentially a 10/22 pistol. #-o
Ammo-buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Well it's about time Ruger copied someone else's work, Volquartsen has been making something just like this for a couple years. But the kicker is the price tag for the V.Q's is like 3 times as much. Serves V.Q. well since they have been copy catting Ruger for years.

I saw something like that from Sound Tech a while back in an suppresed SBR....its a neat concept
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

I would but just one problem.

The difference between dealer price and retail price on something like that, not to mention market price, is so slim a group buy would be rather pointless.

Looking around at internet prices they are going for about $10 above my dealer price. So basically you guys can already get them for about what I pay for them.

New version out. Instead of the one piece stock with a grip that is too small for a full sized hand, they put an AR type grip on it and made a few other changes to make the stock less clunky. I have one on the way to try out.

Pretty sweet! Comes threaded in 1/2x 28. I have the old model i threaded for my sparrow. I dont play with it much but still think its a great little fun "pistol".
