I have been hearing that people want this rifle, I got it directly from our distributer, about the ruger .375 some of this I am sure you already know. The alaskan has a dimond coated stainless steel over which a matte black is applied, it will have a houge stock and a 20' barrel. the african will have walnut stock, blued steel, and a 23" barrel, both will have open sights.
I found out that the alaskan is not yet avaliable, as ruger recalled them because of a problem with the finish. We have them on order at work (frontier outfittters, fairbanks) but as of yet they are not in, we have been told that we will recive the african model first. USE CAUTION if someone tells you they have one, because of what I have already told you. I hear rumors that soemone has one of these but when I chase it down, it always had turned out false, or a mistake like they have a 375 in a ruger but it's a H&H. they will cost about 975$ (give or take a little) from what I know now. I will post on the site as soon as I know we have either model, but expect them to go fast. Some distributers might have the ammo now as it has been realsed by Hornady, we however do not have in yet. expect there to be a mad rush, then Hornady (bless them but they do this everytime) will not have any avaible for about a year, so get dies asap if you plan to own & shoot this rifle.
