Ruger Temporarily Suspends New Orders

Ruger has announced that new orders have been temporarily suspended after the company received more than one million in the first quarter of 2012.


After receiving more than one million order requests in the first quarter of 2012 alone, Sturm, Ruger & Co. has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Ruger CEO Michael O. Fifer said that despite the company's continuing efforts to increase production, the incoming order rate exceeds Ruger's capacity to rapidly fulfill the orders. The temporary suspension is expected to last until the end of May.

Ruger's success is part of what led the company to expand on its existing "Million Gun Challenge" with the NRA. The fundraiser became the "1.2 Million Gun Challenge" at SHOT Show 2012. The final results will be announced at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings in St. Louis, MO.
