Ruger has acknowledged the resurgence of the 10 mm Auto cartridge in a variety of platforms and now accommodates in a large-frame double-action revolver synonymous with “thumper” cartridges such as .44 Magnum—the Super Redhawk (SRH). This newest SRH iteration provides a fluted cylinder chambered for 10mm Auto and designed to accomodate full-moon clips.
Success of the AR platform with the consumer market led to the birth of a cartridge that utilizes a .30-cal. bullet and is designed for use with AR-15-style rifles and pistols, the .300 Blackout. SIG Sauer, for one, has met the growing .30-cal. demand, developing a line of rifles dedicated to .300 Blackout. Meet the SIGM400 Predator.
Since 1979, Sturm, Ruger & Co. has offered a DA/SA (double-action/single-action) large-frame revolver known as the Redhawk. It’s got a pretty dedicated following, we’d say.
Just two years ago, Ruger celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its venerable 10/22. One of the industry's most widely respected rimfire rifles, the 10/22 has earned a lasting home in the gun safe of many a hunter and shooter. Its dependability and versatility have endeared it to the American public, and there are few doubts that it'll be around for another five decades, at least.
The Winchester brand has had no shortage of new surprises for its consumers—like the new Varmint X shotshell—but, as SHOT Show 2016 kicks into high gear, the company will also begin a year-long celebration. Oliver F. Winchester introduced his now legendary brand to the world in 1866—and so, in 2016, Winchester celebrates 150 years of success.
