Good gun alert: a 12 gauge Ruger Stainless Steel O/U…

I’ve had a passion for double-barrels my whole life. Ruger’s Red Labels were the shotguns that lit that flame for me, and even though I’ve a lot of negative things about these Over-and-Unders, I’ve always liked them. I’ve toyed with the idea of buying one in 28-gauge, but never followed through with the whim.

Introduced in 1977, the Red Label was America’s first mass-made O/U. As a kid, I remember seeing them at the local gunshop. They were usually the finest shotgun there, and they were always behind the counter. I could only admire them with my eyes, but I could see enough to know that I wanted one.

I’m not sure when Ruger introduced their stainless-steel line of “All Weather” Red Labels (the actions on Red Labels were always stainless steel). With black synthetic stocks, the All Weather are as close to a Black Gun as I’ve ever seen in a double. That being said, they do look perfect for sea ducks, or for hunting from a blind in crappy, waterfowling weather.

Here’s more about this one from the seller:

Ruger Red Label, 12 Gauge, Stainless Game Gun: 28″ bbls, 3″ chambers, Ruger screw-in chokes, Synthetic stock, 14 1/4″ LOP, 8lbs, Selective single trigger. Excellent condition overall with original box. All Stainless Steel barrel and action with synthetic stock. Price: $1,349.99

  1. I didn’t have it for sale. It was available on Gunsinternational.com. Check there for it. I think Cabela’s was selling it.

    Good luck.

  2. Hi, Frank.

    I don’t sell guns. I only list ones I see online. It looks like that Ruger is sold.

    Thanks for your comment. Good luck with your search.
