looks nice from what i see, a 30-06 with adjustable lop and backup sights, and just short enough, and a muzzle brake so i dont dislocate shoulder practicing. One question though, will it be avalible in a stock thats not rediculously ugly? That multicolor stuff is rediculous.

Ruger also came out with a compact American rifle. I see that that as a platform for a great little guide gun. Has an 18" bbl that can be easliy threaded for a brake/flash hider. Detachable mag, synthetic stock. Inexpensive by comparison.

Ruger is on a winning streak with me, the new guide gun looks like a great option.

"Hawkeye Matte" the only finish. Look at the calibers! I'll take '06, thanks!

I'm confused about this gun. Aside from the ugly stock, it also has only a 3 shot capacity. Other than that, it seems very similar to their Gunsite model, 'cept the Gunsite has removable magazines. What is the purpose of the Guide Gun?

I was wondering the same thing. If I need a quick handling gun with iron sights for close up work I'd rather have a lever action .30-30 or a 12g pump.

That thing is ugly.

30-06 holds 4 rounds.

One common gunsite scout criticism is its too small and barrels not long enough. This gives more velocity, and allows irons with tradtional scope, gsc only with scout scope.

Supposed to be a lightweight rifle for dangerous game, but it includes .30-06? No .458 Win mag or .416 Rigby... .458 Lott?

The only thing more confusing I can find on their site is the African game gun chambered in .223.

Most offerings of this guide gun aren't allowed in most African countries for hunting. IIRC, .375 H&H is a minimum...

Looks like an Alaska only rifle, I guess...


While I like laminated stocks, this thing is U.G.L.Y.

I'd rather have some nice Tru-Glo iron sights on the American

Or one of those Marlin Guide Guns in a rainbow of heavy calibers.

But I can kind of see what Ruger is getting at.

Why a muzzle brake? I'm sick of seeing them going on everything. Being a turn bolt, follow up shots won't be any quicker due to less muzzle rise. Why not a receiver sight? I hope that's at least an express leaf in the rear.

A muzzle brake is to reduce felt recoil, and these guns are in big calibers. Im all for not beating myself by shooting my gun.

Its not necessarily only for follow up speed or muzzle rise.

A muzzle brake reduces muzzle flip much more than it reduces felt recoil. Aside from the .375 Ruger, I wouldn't consider any of those cartridges particularly 'big'. Between the 8lb+ weight and what is hopefully a decent recoil pad, they shouldn't be too painful to shoot.

If they were chambered in something that started with a 4, the muzzle brake, and the entire rifle, would make a lot more sense.
