I noticed on the recently updated ruger web site, that the Alaskan is no longer available. I bought one when they first came out, and it has become the best rifle I have ever owned. It is my go to tool, there is nothing I don't like about it or the cartridge,from up close work with open sights, to a very capable 300+ yard after slapping my Nikon on with Warner QD rings,it does it. Sorry for the rambling on, just upset that if for whatever reason I needed to replace mine, it won't be on the shelf! I hope they just forgot to put it on the website.
