In 2011, Ruger halted production of the highly popular Red Label shotgun. Recently, the company announced a redesigned Red Label featuring refined inner workings, a new center of gravity and reduced recoil.

The new 12-gauge Red Label has a redistributed center of gravity for improved instinctual swing and pointing. It also features 2-inch extended forcing cones, maximum back-bored barrels and a soft Pachmayr buttpad to reduce recoil.

The Red Label comes with an American Walnut stock with a 1.5-inch drop at comb and a 2.5-inch drop at heel. Red Label shotguns are available with 26-, 28- or 30-inch barrels and each model features a 14.5-inch length of pull.
