After looking at these for awhile I finally bought one of these nifty carbines. I've always been a huge fan of the Enfield No5 MKI (Jungle Carbine) and the Ruger GSR takes that concept to a higher level. If you could only own 1 centerfire rifle the GSR would be an excellent choice. The gun feels great and the fit and finish is excellent. The only thing I did so far was to buy a couple of Rugers new polymer magazines for it which I feel are superior to the original metal one. Anyone looking for a super versatile rifle/carbine should check one of these out, I think you'll be as impressed as I was.
