    Ruger American

    Does anyone know of somewhere with a Ruger American .223 (the model that takes AR mags) in stock?

    Cunting and Fisting apparently have advertised them, complete with a 20 or 30 shot mag option!

    Furleys had a shipment of assorted firearms on the way to NZ but had to get the container unloaded due to there being ar's/ pc 9's etc in there as well .
    I was told they have to do the permit dance all over again so the next shipment could be some time .
    Wirehunt and Stocky like this.

    So is xmas lol.

    Furlys are traditionally rather slow with imports. Hopefully its sooner rather then later. Permits are the big issue these days.
