I must give credit to Don for this entire thread. I believe that the other XGI information that I posted came from him originally as well.

There is also the old story of WBR walking into the store of an old-time friend in Tucson, where he found three (or was it five?) XGI rifles right there for sale on the rack. Bill got pretty angry and gathered up all of them and unceremoniously carried the armful out to his car and dumped them in the backseat! One version had him pointing his finger in his friend's face and telling him in no uncertain terms to call him immediately if he ever heard of any others that got out of the factory.
(Murphy's is still there?)

-So I believe that regardless of internal memos and distributor notifications, some got shipped to a distributor and sold to a shop or two through regular channels. I suspect whoever has an example in any state, is not talking!
It is a Right, NOT a permit.

Yeah? I know of one that went to a distributor in California, courtesy of Tom Ruger, along with the letter that gave it to them.
