I purchased a used SP101 in a .357 with the 3"bbl. Great little revolver. However, I noticed while cleaning it after a shooting session that the slot for the forward crane latch was "buggered". It appeared to be a manufacturing defect. It kept the front of the cylinder from locking up tight. I returned it to Ruger with a brief explanation just before Thanksgiving. Today I received a letter that they are replacing the revo with a new one. No charge. No postage due. Best $280 I have spent.
Does this type of service appear to be industry standard, or does Ruger shine above the rest?

I have had good service too.
I needed some (forget correct term right now) different scope rings for my Ruger #1 when new - it wouldn't zero with the Leupold scope. Spoke to someone at their AZ place was it - anyways - sent std rings back after getting replacements quickly.
Other thing was for my old P95 - had lost the front circlip spring retainer - asked for a spare, and they sent (this was from their place in NE) - three or four clips and ... a complete recoil assembly to boot!
I was well impressed.

Ruger has always been top notch in customer service imo.

Well, We'll See...
I just picked up my BushMaster AR-15, and was considering an upper in .22LR, but instead, also picked up a Ruger 10-22 rifle (stainless) with a 3-10 scope...cheap way to 'plink', or a second SHTF scoped gun for the wife...
I have not had a chance to fire either, yet...
Hopefully, I won't need to test the Ruger Service Dept.

I have sent back at least a 6 RUGERS for repair over the last 25 years. While Rugers are good they are a value line.

I love my MKIII. Shoots great and thier service is great as well.
I had put on the scope base and shot gone to the range w/o applying any locktight. Ended up loosing one of he screws. I called up service expecting to get stuck buying a whole new scope base kit. The guy just sent me a couple screws instead of making me buy the whole thing.
