    I agree and wasnt implying you hurt your pistol, but only if you commented here about how could a little overload hurt, you might say it to them.My main point is/was...about gone are the days you could speak to a person in a policy making position...etc...just didnt want you taking revolver in...who knows..employee may have a check list in front of him he can only follow....example: "were handloads ever used ? if yes go here, if no go here " etc...I dont neccessarily infer anyone fib to someone usually, but, Ruger can afford a barrel and labor and I've had a hard on against them for while...my own issue.

    About 6 weeks ago, if some remember, I had concerns about my GP100. I posted pics of what I called the forcing cone, but it certainly did not look anything like the OP's pic. Ruder did ask to see it and I sent it to them, postage paid and had it back in about a week. It is obvious that the forcing cone looks different than before I sent it to them, almost beveled slightly. All it said on the paperwork was "barrel repaired, safety check performed". No detained info.

    Something is different, I can see it. Took it out not long ago and it shoots just fine.

    I have had 3 encounters with Ruger customer service....all very positive.

    Took a close up pic of my Gp 100, that's what it looks like. Been to the Ruger forum and a few guys got the same thing and got a free barrel change *crosses fingers*

    Yes Zig, I remember...in fact I first thought this thread was your follow up
    as you dont see a lot of GP100 Cone threads lol...but then I thought I recalled you felt a burr or such on " outside" after cleaning...glad you got it looked at. A bevel edge would suggest they went over it!

    From Kob's photo and his statement of comments from a Ruger forum, it appears Ruger may have had some "quality escapes" in regards to forcing-cone formation in barrels (?).

    ^^^ One of the members at Ruger's forum said they probably had issues on some barrels regarding heat treatment of some barrels which is why some may be"softer" if you can use that term

    Funny when you think that it's only powder residue and pressure that caused this erosion. I've seen some picture where you can see a flame cut on the top strap of the frame as if it was gouged out with a tool
    Still the problem with this is that it's not going to get any better if I keep shooting with it, the little cracks/gouges are going to get worst cause there's more room for pressure to escape

    I may be wrong, but after seeing your actual photos vs. the crack in your example pic, yours looks more visible wear than a torque failure. But still send it in.
