Most people who have been following the blog know two things, I am not a black rifle guy and that I love Ruger firearms. I understand the allure of the black rifle, but I like the style and appearance of wood. In reality a polymer makes more sense, they are lightweight and you don’t have to worry about scratching or marring the finish like you do with wooden furniture. I have always admired the Ruger SR-556 and it has proven to be an excellent piston driven firearm. Now Ruger has released the SR-762 which is an AR-10 chambered in .308 Winchester. The only gripe I have seen is people wanting a 20″ barrel and knowing Ruger it is probably on the drawing board.
