SR9 OD not available?

Back in March I tried to purchase and OD Green Full Size SR9. I called them today and they contact their distributor and whoever else and came back to me saying that Ruger isn't making the OD version anymore..I figured as much since it was not posted on their website and I know that it can be found through GunBroker.com or by finding a lucky store that has it but that was a shocking thing I found out today. I was really looking forward to getting this gun now I got refunded my money for my deposit and I am kinda stuck as to what I want to do the gun is great but I may wait for it to be more proven and or tweaked by the factory as it seems to still be getting that treatment and splurge on the 100th Anniversary Edition Colt 1911 or the SR1911 but I would rather wait on this particular Ruger too for atlas a year or so to make sure that all the stuff is good with that. Just figured I would pass the info along as it seems no one but I has been mentioning this..

Ruger Redhawk will become famous soon enough
They must not have been selling the OD Green ones and dropped them unless it was a dealer exclusive. I do like them myself. Sorry for your disappointment.

Nope, seems they dont make it anymore. You can get the all black one like I did and have to sprayed to OD green. I found a nice local place that will do mine for about $60, well worth it if you must have OD green.

Silversmok3 is an unknown quantity at this point
The OD SR9 was hard to find when they were in production. I owned one some time ago, it was my first Ruger when I joined the site. I choose it by virtue of it being $50 cheaper than the 'standard' silver/black frame,as the OD green SR9 was being sold on base tax free compared to downtown.

The dirty secret about the OD SR9 is that when loaded,the combination of olive green frame,black slide, white safety indicator,black frame pins and furntiure, silver barrel,and red loaded chamber indicator is a bizzare set of colors on one gun.

Just my two cents, but that's probably why it didnt sell well. Youre not missing much IMO, and I think the blued/black one I have now looks much more refined than the 'wannabe GI' look the OD has.

Personally i was hoping they came out with a flat dark earth version to match my sw mp ar15.

But i know my next purchase is gonna be the sr9 and do what im planning and fully customize it yourself. I plan on having it coated dark earth and a bunch of little stuff to make a comp. Gun out of it.

My gf wants a sr9c done up in pink digi camo for her 21st bday so buy one and have it done anyway you want.

O and i plan on getting rid of all the extras while im doing my sr9 build just a tip

I am going custom with mine, not super custom, just waiting on the cherekote (sp*) samples to get here before I pick my color.

I picked one up and I love it. It is my favorite gun. I have glocks and some others. Just something about that od. My glock 23 is od,but I don't like the color as much as the ruger. Try gun shows you might find one there. Good luck!
