The stainless GSR is officially on my list for 2013. I personally prefered the export version of the GSR myself, as I thought the 16" barrel was a little short for a .308. I also didn't care for the flash suppressor either. But now Ruger went and came out with this model, and it even includes a thread protector if you wish to do away with the flash suppressor. Looks like I better start saving my pennies.
