Ruger’s History

William B. Ruger founded the company “Sturm, Ruger, & Co.” in 1949 with $50,000. Accounting for inflation, that was still only about $500,000 today.[1] That’s not a lot of money to get an entire company off the ground and running. To add an additional obstacle, most gun insiders warned Ruger against beginning his company, as they believed the gun market had entered a downturn. Boy, were they wrong.

 

From the beginning, Ruger focused on producing high-quality and durable products. Sticking so closely to their founding vision has made Ruger one of the best respected companies on the New York Stock Exchange and a highly desirable manufacturer of firearms. Today, Ruger creates over 400 variations of rugged firearms for the private consumer as well as police and military agencies.
