At the Range: Ruger Red Label

by Guns & Ammo TV   |  June 27th, 2014 5

ruger_new_red_label_shotgun_FThe Ruger Red Label has a number of devoted followers among upland bird hunters and clay shooters ever since its introduction in 1977. In 2011, however, Ruger discontinued production on the popular shotgun.

After a three-year hiatus, the Ruger Red Label has returned to the shooting world once again. Although much has changed with the new Red Label’s design, a lot has also remained the same in this classic over/under shotgun.

We couldn’t wait to get our hands on the new version of this classic over/under to see how it compares to the original Red Label.

Find out how the Ruger Red Label performs at the range in this segment of Guns & Ammo TV on the Sportsman Channel.

    Sorry, Ruger’s Red Label is still a “pig’s ear!”

      Have you shot it, Jim? Ruger makes great stuff. Give it a chance.

    • Donnie Robertson

      Jimbo kain’t afford one – so he makes bad comments? Oh Jimbo – The Bimbo?

    I have put about 2000 rounds through the new Red Label. It is an excellent shotgun. It shoots every bit as well as my buddies 686 Onxy, or my wifes Citori. It is a soft shooter, easy to control for that second clay. Fit and finish is excellent. It isn’t fancy, but it is built like a tank.

    Got mine after a very very long wait, took it to the range and after a few rounds had to stop, shells went past raised ejector. Sent it back to Ruger, got it back with same problem, sent it back again, and after some wait was told it could not be repaired, gun had to be replaced. Was told at least a two month wait for a replacement. Didn’t expect this for the amount of money it cost. Made in America lost some of its luster.
