So for $45 a more than qualified smith is going to bring your gun back to factory specs. It’s going to be throughly examined, adjusted, factory cleaned, timing and head space checked and basically returned to you in new unfired condition. I’d be hesitant to send it. You should carry it on a silk pillow to the factory. You hit pay dirt.
I'm guessing they'll replace the barrel. Ruger can be impressive that's why I'm a Ruger man.
Since you bought it Used, take the new gun if that is what they do. You don't know what else may be wrong with it right now. Don't know what you mean for certain on scrubbing the bore every time you shoot it.The CS rep said they probably will replace the barrel. She also said take anything after market off. Incase they replace the gun. Id rather a nice bore. No reason i should have to scrub the bore everytime i shoot it. When it comes back. I'll post up how they did and a range report. I'll send it Monday. UPS was already at postage plus. I don't want to let it there over the weekend. With all the scum we have in the area now.
