Ruger’s Wolf (ammo) eater
So Ruger just introduced their new American Rifle Ranch model, a bolt-action 7.62x39mm– because what is more American than that, right?! The lightweight (~6lb) rifle has a free-floating 16.10″ medium-contour, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 5/8″-24 threaded muzzle for cans and devices.
It takes Ruger Mini-30 mags, which is nice but would have been nicer if it took AK mags. Still, expect it to run in local stores by this fall at around the $550ish mark, comparing nicely to the CZ 527 carbine, which is roughly the same concept but with a walnut stock and slightly longer barrel but costs more like $700.
And best yet, it chews through Wolf import ammo.
