They do shoot well though and seem to be accurate and reliable from my limited experience with one.
I have to agree. I inspected both rifles side by side at the local gun shop and the level of finish for the Ruger is just not up to the level of the SW. Besides, their are proprietary elements to the Ruger that turned me away....it may be a nice rifle but I don't think it has greater value than the SW.....me I am a Colt AR guy, but have been tempted to purchase the SW for my truck rifle.
