I understand Ruger is not making this model anymore. Anyone have any experience with this gun?

It has a nice finish and appealing look. I've owned 2 red labels sporting clay models one in woodside, also no longer made.

Have seen more than a few where the barrels separated. Factory bought them back from the owners. I liked them too until I saw this happening. Although I had a friend that shot his for years in the salt marshes with no problems. Wasn't a stainless though.

Nice looking gun, but the quality has been less than stellar.

I have one I use for skeet and it does very well, I probably average a 23 or maybe a 22 with it. It did have to be sent in for a hairline crack after a few months but Ruger was VERY fast and there were no problems. It was back in a few weeks with somewhat better wood (stock and forend). Had a similar problem with a Beretta and the turn around was much longer. In each of these cases I fault the fact that wood can change, rather than the manufacturers.
