Has anyone ever seen one of these; Ruger’s Red Label, Shotgun.
12 gauge Ruger Stainless Steel Double Barrel Over Under Shotgun
Introduced in 1977, as their stainless-steel line of “All Weather” Red Labels (the actions on Red Labels were always stainless steel). With black synthetic stocks.
Stainless Game Gun: 28″ bbls, 3″ chambers, Ruger screw-in chokes, Synthetic stock, 14 1/4″ LOP, 8lbs, Selective single trigger.

Does anyone know of one of these?
has used one?
Why don't manufacturers make SS shotguns?

they were made from 95 to 2002 they didnt sell well here.
the shooters that use red labels are skeet and trap shooters and duck hunters duck hunters dont want stainless guns and the trap and skeet like blue and wood guns.
the cost of them were hi also.

My nephew has one. Nice piece. Shoots fine. No common in Oz. He had to look for a long time to get one. As Wrench says, shiny stainless not a good look in the duck swamp! Upland game probably?

Yep - have seen one of the Ruger stainless shotguns . The Blued versions were very nice too and they did make a nice 20 bore too.
I assume they would be collectors pieces now along with the Ruger single shot rifles ........
