It is only temporary...true happiness will come when you sell it to me. Only then, will you truly be happy.

From my decades with revolvers, I’ve never had a problem with my S&W’s and two Colts. Then again, I only use top shelf ammo and all of my guns have been somewhat refined. As mentioned, have the trigger assembly (and more) inspected by a reputable gunsmith. Granted, that’s easier said than done but there are few still left.

I had a pair of Security Six revolvers in my early days as a lawman.
Loaned one out and the fellow officer (read tom fool idjut) slammed the cylinder shut like a TV detective.
Bent the crane.
It worked fine until the second cylinderful went downrange, then heat expanded it longways and it bound up against the back of the barrel.
Sent it back to the factory, Ruger repaired it, no charge.

I finally got a chance to bring it back to the shop I bought it from. I told them the issue and the shop owner fired it. It fired flawlessly both .38 and .357. He did find that the timing was off and that the firing pin was not centered. He is sending it back to ruger for me. Anyone have experience with ruger customer service? How long do you think it will take them to fix the problem?

No, but according to some here, you will be well taken care of, and it usually sounded as though the wait is not too long or arduous.
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them, it is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that imthe people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can."

Dealer sent back my SP101 due to " lock up " problems and I had it back in ten days! They did three things to it including " adjusting the barrel"-- whatever that means. Works fine now.

You shouldn't ask such things, gunsmiths have things called hammers and _ _ rods and use them in unspeakable ways. Never watch a gunsmith work on your gun.

I think everyone went right on by that.... I think you are right on the money.

Ruger's service is one of the best. You probably will see a turn around time of 10 days.
