It looks like Ruger slipped one in right at the same time while Smith & Wesson was relishing in the final announcement of their new pistol. The pistol is chambered in .22LR with an aluminum upper and 4.4 inch barrel to provide a lighter weight option coming in at 22.8 ounces, but also gives that bling factor some shooters are looking for with a gold anodized finish. Suggested retail is $469.99, so you can expect around a $100 premium over their Target version once it hits the shelves. Even though Ruger is inundated and not taking any new orders they are definitely still upping the ante for buyers.
