Ruger Suspends New Orders
March 23, 2012
Okay, if you haven't already heard this, due to huge demand Ruger has temporarily stopped accepting new orders. The company's retailer programs that were offered beginning the first of the year were so successful that through Feb. 29 the firm had received orders for more than a million firearms.
Ruger went right to work to increase production, but the pace of incoming orders exceeded their capacity to fill them. CEO Michael Fifer said the company expects to resume normal acceptance of orders by the end of May. In short, if there's a Ruger you want and it's on the shelf of your local gun store, you'd better go get it.
