I can't wait for reviews on the new Guide Gun. I have long desired a scout rifle in 30-06. Realistically, that's not a great fit, but the next best thing might be a 20" Guide Gun in 30-06. Looks slightly tactical, which serves no purpose other than rating high on sex appeal (for me at least).
My Grail Gun has long been a sturdy, handy, faintly quasi-tactical 30-06 with irons that I can feed a steady diet of cheap 180 grain Core Lokts. Scoped or irons, this rig would inspire confidence in about any scenario I can dream up.
I'm hoping that the Guide Gun catches on. I think Ruger might have done better if they'd chambered the gun in more standard calibers for the weekend deer and hog hunter (myself included), who generally buy more rifles than actual Alaskan guides do.
I hate the muzzle break because I value my hearing.
I have no need for a Guide Gun, but I think I want one. In a bad way.

Those spacers are still causing me fits. I can't get over my pure hatred of all things LOP spacers.... They're sinful, and when removed make the gun too dang short! I agree it's a nice rifle overall, a little salty but nice nontheless. But those spacers.......Me o my.

Why the hang isn't it chambered in .35 Whelen?;)

If you don't need a detachable mag, which I don't see any reason for one, then you can easily make your own.

Mounting sights is a simple job for a smith.
