Sometimes when parts fail it is because they were used heavily,There is a lot of force involved in the firing of a gun,repeatedly battering metal against metal sometimes brass against steel,and yet we expect the parts to last forever,which as far as the average gun owner it will,but a shootist will put more rounds thru a gun in a couple of months than the average guy will in his lifetime.

Some people can't handle change.
If the original designs were made of forged steel, tool steel parts and/or bar stock parts, that may explain the sandspur in some peoples panties.

Did you know that the Springfield Professional model, the one that went through some very demanding tests before the FBI selected it, uses a MIM slide stop?
There's good MIM and bad MIM.

Tango, you are absolutely right about people passing on internet babble and rumor without substantiated information.
Having said that, I'll pass on a little more "rumor". :)
From what I have read, MIM parts can be very good quality, if proper manufacturing processes are used. If not, they can be sub-standard. I have used Wilson Combat MIM parts, and can only say my experience has been very good. They are not, however, the cheapest parts available, priced somewhere in the mid-range.
I suppose forged parts leave a little less room for error. The "smaller" shops tout forged only. Of course, that may be because they do not have the manufacturing cabability to do MIM, I don't know. Although it is not MIM, Ruger has been using investment casting for years. Not too many folks would accuse Rugers of being "flimsy" and "brittle". (Ugly maybe, but not flimsy!) The point here, is that Ruger does it right. If Jennings or someone tried the same process, you might get junk.

Some say Rugers are built like a tank, and say they are stronger than S&W. Others say they have to build them that way due to using cast frames. Some say S&W is just as strong and don't need to be big and as heavy because they use forged steel frames.
Who knows the truth? I personally would prefer forged, but I have never blown up a Ruger....yet.

I think a few folks here hit on a valid concept. Quality out of one type of metal may well be in who is making it. Devilsclaw's analogy comparing Ruger to Jennings potential with the same item is pretty dead on at least in theory, if not in practice.
