$699, that's a good price for what you are getting. Hopefully it lives up to the hype in the accuracy department. I would definitely look at getting one at that price. If it has a standard AR handle that's even better. I reckon they will sell a ton of these, even if they only prove slightly more accurate than a standard American rimfire.

Well, realistically, they will be as accurate or precise as any other 20" ruger lol It looks damn cool though. But, I decided to start saving my dollaroonies for a slightly larger caliber.

Actually, RAR compact 22LR is on my list. BL-22 is well used :) Then I also have an Alfa and Remington 12a that needed a good home, so I gave it one. I don't think this one is for me, but RAR compact is definitely on the list (in green). I really like that one.

green is another one with pic rail but no iron sight and that's 16.5 inch barrel, my friend got one and keep in my safe most of time, for me is too short and not feel right in hand although I really like short rifles, and I like the dark earth kind of color (ranch) lot more than that green, it is a little too green to me, but I have to say that is a very accurate short rifle, after few hundred round it shoots a big hole (CCI SV 50 meters 10 round group)

Considering they banned it one day after it was first advertised here I'm guessing they didn't even put it up for discussion.

Ordered one today. I was thinking about putting my CZ into a chassis. But at the price I thought I'd buy the Ruger. Hopefully it is a good shooter. The local price was good. Might not see it to June though :(
Might be early. :D Apparently 700 have already been ordered

Besides the chassis, are there any functional differences between this and a standard RAR? Either way it looks good for the money.

It appears to me to be the Target model in a chassis, so a heavier barrel with threaded muzzle, and the different bolt handle shape.
My Target plus the MDT LSS-22 chassis cost about double what these are listed at, so it seems like good value.
The MDT chassis is aluminium from the buffer tube to the fore end. This Ruger chassis is only aluminium in the fore end, the chassis part of it is polymer. Not better or worse, but probably significantly cheaper to make.
This is listed as a tenth of a pound heavier than the 6.7lb lami-stocked Target model, which is already 1.4lb heavier than the Compact. My Compact in the MDT chassis without scope is 3.24kg (7.14lb) (it does have two additional pic rails though and a butt pad for extra grip). I haven't worked out if this will use standard Ruger 10rd mags though, which would be annoying if you already have a bunch of mags for the Ruger Americans.

I'll quite likely end up ordering one of these anyway for comparison :-)

It uses standard BX /10-22 type magazines.
