Hmmm - it looks like the grip will (maybe) pivot downward to allow faster disassembly for cleaning? The frame looks cast now instead of sheet metal + no more heel-release magazine ... And, most importantly - no more dreaded / junky plastic LCI?

What do I do now? Order three? Or, four? Two Hunters, short and long barrels? A Target model and a Competition Target model? Or, a combination of two short barrels and a long barrel. Or, two long barrels and a short barrel?

Keep what I have? Do I spend enough time/energy cleaning, to make a difference?

Anyway! I like the looks. And, the concept.

Hold your horses there buddy! If its like most Ruger launches, there will probably be one version available at first with others to follow. A Mark IV 22/45, for example, is probably next year or later. And it will take some time for the aftermarket to catch up as well.

Appears to be Ruger's response to the S&W Victory. Interesting.

Nice upgrade I think. Have to see it, touch it, and maybe shoot it, to know my lust value for this little jewel.

Nice gun. I'm interested. Asked at the LGS and they did not have any. I like that Ruger finally got rid of the older takedown latch. Point it up, point it down magazine in, magazine out. Now take your partner and do-si-do.
