    Default Ruger's new .22 revolver cannot be sold in Minnesota

    They have a "Saturday Night Special" description in a law passed in 1975. One of the descriptions is metal that can be melted at 1000 degrees or less. The grip is a zinc base metal.

    This should save quite a few lives.

    Should probably be called the 'discriminate against the poor' law.

    Minnesotta has long been the KREMLIN of the Midwest. A Commie run, high tax, Nanny State.

    South Carolina has, or had, a similar law. I know it was still on the books in the 2000-2010 year range.

    Back when the IMI mini Uzi was imported, they were sold with an almost 20" barrel to comply with Minnesota law. There they measure the overall length with the stock closed. So they made the barrel longer for importation in case they ended up in MN..

    Several states have such a law. Illinois, South Carolina, Hawaii, and Minnesota legislatures adopted rigid melting-point schemes designed to remove so-called Saturday Night Specials from the market. South Carolina has rescinded theirs. Not sure about the rest. Other states may have added them as well.

    I haven't examined one yet , but I've been hearing Ruger is now using die cast Zamac (zinc alloy) for Blackhawk grip frames instead of the original investment cast aluminum.

    Frankly I've always hated the aluminum grip frame on Blackhawks. I've had several , they ruin the balance , they were not fitted to the frame very well and they don't match the blued steel of the frame and barrel. Some I fitted salvaged blue or stainless steel grip frames to.

    Why they used black anodized aluminum for the grip frames on the blued Blackhawks* , but the stainless guns got stainless steel grip frames , I'll never know. *Some .44 mag Blackhawks did get blue steel grip frames.
