Did they ever get them, or have an update when they would?

Not a peep, you guys know as much as I do about it. I have always posted what Darrik said by using his own quotes.

Ruger will do it when their production schedule allows.

They're HERE. Go fetch one for yourself. $329, just saw it posted on The Book of Face.

Have at it. I'm too aggravated by the extraction issues to buy another RAR.

Seriously! I sold all but one after 4 or 5 of them had issues. Ruger was great but for $300 I shouldn't have these problems. I hate to admit it but I think I'm a CZ guy now.

I had my FFL send my Predator HM2 back to Whittakers. It took ape grade strength to operate the bolt. My American Target and Predator 22 magnum take much less force. The replacement arrived at my FFL today. I'll pick it up sometime this week. I have had enough of Ruger's crap QC. I have bought my last one.

That sucks. My predator came in and the bolt was missing the ejection clip and claw extractor. Thank goodness the guy at the counter helped me find it and we put it back together.

Shot it this weekend but it was so windy that I didnít shoot it for groups.

It had no problems hitting stuff at 75 yards.

Only had a few feeding issues (old magazine would put the bullets pointing to high and jam them into the breach and miss the chamber.
It didnít happen all the time and only on my boy and a well used magazine.

Going to try it some more this week I hope if the weather plays right
