    1. Ruger needs to add the synthetic stock to all their Scout models. I personally would like a Ruger Scout in .308 with an olive green synthetic stock and an 18.7″ or 20″ stainless barrel. I could buy a model 6822 and a synthetic stock separately, but I don’t want to spend an extra $150.00 for a synthetic stock on top of the already steep price of a Scout rifle.

      Actually, I would like to see Ruger set up a custom shop so that we can get custom barrel lengths, cerakote finishes, action work, etc.

      1. @Rokflyer, the .17 WSM is a rimfire cartridge that will get a shooter out four hundred yards. A .22 rimfire can’t do that. Thus the .17 WSM is interesting.

    2. 1) I’d be interested in the .17wsm if it came in the .450 bushmaster configuration…but another blah wood stock bolt action rifle? No thanks.

      2) if one of the previous posters was referring to wanting the .17 wsm in semi auto…be careful what you wish for…they have a history of blowing up. Granted, a vertical magazine eliminates many of the issues, but still iffy. But if anyone can design a safe one, it would be ruger.

      1. Volquartzen makes a semi-auto .17 WSM. Phenomenally accurate. Phenomenal range. Phenomenally reliable. Phenomenally pricey. Phenomenally homely.
