Ruger LCR 9mm Release

Recently Ruger has released a new caliber option for the Ruger LCR. Ruger has now introduced to the revolver market the new 9mm LCR. The 9mm has been a popular round for new gun makers in the recent years. Most have been focusing on smaller handguns and slim designs such as the Ruger Lc9. In the recent years manufacturers have been pursuing revolvers with the option of selecting 9mm, 40, and 45 calibers. What could be a better combination then having the LCR in 9mm?   Ruger known very well for its LC9 & SR9, 40, and 45 have put together a phenomenal piece for those who choose revolvers over the semi automatic pistols.

Ruger Firearms 2011 Gun Manufacture of the Year.

For the past couple years Ruger has become one of the most advanced gun manufactures in the world. Their firearms are constantly winning new awards back to back (Gun of the year). This month they have a huge cover on the magazine of Guns and Ammo. We have announced Ruger as Gun Manufacture of the Year for 2011.

 

Sturm, Ruger & Company was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm in 1949 in a small rented machine shop in Southport, Connecticut.[3] Just prior to their partnership, Bill Ruger had successfully duplicated two Baby Nambu pistols in his garage, from a captured Nambu that he acquired from a returning US Marine, at the close of World War II. When it came to designing their first auto pistol, Ruger decided to incorporate the looks of the German 9mm Luger and the American Colt Woodsman into their first commercially produced .22 caliber pistol (see Ruger Standard), which became so successful that it launched the entire company
