BREAKING: Gun Industry Boycott of California is getting underway!

Hot on the heels of Ruger’s announcement that it will allow all of its pistols to fall off the California Department Of Justice approved list, ending Ruger’s pistol sales in the Golden State, we’ve just learned that Smith & Wesson’s M&P pistols will also go off the menu.

via BREAKING: Smith & Wesson M&P Pistols to Fall Off CA DOJ Approved List | The Truth About Guns.

TruthAboutGuns.com is reporting that both Ruger and Smith&Wesson are about to let their popular handguns fall off the California DOJ approval list. It’s high time these manufacturers followed Ronnie Barrett’s example. Looks like they finally will. Hopefully others will follow suit and refuse to sell to anyone providing firearms to California police departments too.  If they want to dry up their supply of guns, it would seem we should oblige them.

Ruger Firearms Introduces SR-762, piston-driven AR

Ruger SR-762

October 17, 2013

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce the new Ruger® SR-762™, bringing the .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge to the popular SR-556® family of rifles. The SR-762™ offers the downrange authority of the .308 cartridge in a two-stage, piston-driven rifle that runs cooler and cleaner than traditional gas-driven AR-style rifles.

The SR-762™ is an ideal rifle for those who appreciate the familiar and ergonomic AR-style platform. The .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge is perfect for hunting medium and most large-sized game and enhances the capability of the AR-style platform in defensive or tactical roles.

The SR-762™ retains the features of the original SR-556® that make it a solid performer among AR-style rifles. The patent-pending, two-stage piston delivers a smooth power stroke to the one-piece bolt carrier, which reduces felt recoil and improves the rifle’s durability. The four-position gas regulator allows the shooter to tune the rifle to function reliably with a broad variety of ammunition and in varying environmental conditions.

A heavy contour, 16.12″ chrome-lined, cold hammer forged barrel with a 1:10″ twist features exterior fluting to minimize weight, yet provides outstanding accuracy. With the Ruger® Lightweight Adaptable handguard in place, the SR-762™ weighs 8.6 pounds and balances comfortably.

Three 20-round MAGPUL® PMAG® magazines are provided with the SR-762™. Folding backup iron sights, a Hogue® Monogrip®, Picatinny rail sections and rail covers add considerable value to the package, as does the six-position stock, sight adjustment tool, and a soft-sided carry case.

The Ruger® SR-762™ has a suggested retail price of $2,195.
