Fairfax, Virginia - Every time we walk into the offices of the National Firearms Museum there's something worth photographing. Today was no different as we caught Senior Curator Doug Wicklund cleaning two unique Ruger pistols.
Ruger, officially Sturm, Ruger & Company, was founded in 1949 by friends William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Ruger provided gunsmithing, Sturm provided the much-needed $50,000 investment to start the company and together they began building one of America's most well known firearms manufacturers.
