Anyone have any information/pictures on the Ruger Viper? In the early in the 1970s the US Army was working on a rocket launcher, the Viper. Ruger experimented with it mounted on a No, 3 rifle action. Only prototypes were produced.

Well, I guess I really do learn something new every day. I have never heard of this.

Was this mentioned in an old RCA Journal at one time ?

Years ago I believe someone had one on display in Tulsa but sure can't remember who it was.

Yes, there is a #3 collector that has one.
Bumped into dozens of .30 Viper serial numbers while I was doing research on the #3 in .44 Mag.

Also sure there was an old RCA Journal with an article Lane Pearce may have written it.

Lee, you're right, found it in RCA Journal Volume 9, No. 4, Page 112. It's a good 4 page Lane Pearce with pics.
Any day without learning is a day of backing up.
