So, if the gun was made near the end of production and sat on the shelf at a distributor for awhile, then on a local gun store shelf for awhile, it could have easily sold new in 2010 or 2011 or even later.
+1. FWIW there was a seller at a recent local gun show who had 4 pistols just like this, in the Ruger boxes, labeled "NEW UNFIRED".

I did not question the seller, but my suspicion is that a distributor probably had some of these pistols languishing in a warehouse since 2008-2009, and has dusted them off and sold them to take advantage of the current buying frenzy.
