You might as well ask for your money back, you'll never be happy with it now. Have you brought this to your dealer's attention?

I've owned a number of Ruger revolvers, still have my Old Army. I've always regarded Rugers as being "adequate". But they don't have the nice slick precision fit and finish of a Colt or an S&W, especially the pre-WWII guns.

This is becuase they think the public (and probably rightfully so) won't pay as much for a .22 revolver as the .38spl version. So to sell them for under 250 or so they make them really cheaply now and have for years.
Do you have any evidence or a source to back this up?

Nothing other than 45 years of shooting experience and owning probably 400 guns over my life. And knowing a bit about metallurgy. You can actually tell by the look and feel of a gun if iti is made out of a quality metal or some lower standard softer metal and as of probably 10 or so years ago, many revolvers in .22 just feel as if made out of lesser quality metals and feel cheap compared to the larger caliber counterparts. Even the semi auto pistols in .22 seem to be taking this round save for Ruger MK series and a few others.

The dealer has it as we speak. No complaints with the dealer at all. The gun was shipped out to me, and I shipped it back. There's been no problems with the service at all. I'm just pissed the thing even left the factory. Next time I purchase, from any dealer, I'll do so in person. I'll be totally happy with a replacement. I have 950 rounds of .22 to chew through. Need a gun. M

That single ten looks like a quality gun. Is the whole thing stainless? Is the problem loading rounds due to machining on the cyl?

Speaking of .22 revolvers, I may be getting one in trade tomorrow. A Taurus 94. BNIB for my Mosin Nagant 91-30.

I think the cylinder was .21. Blue, not stainless. But yes, it felt like a quality gun.......then I tried to load it....

I bought a S&W stainless Chief in the 70's that was a total POS, brand new.

The cylinder wouldn't turn once it was loaded because they hadn't machined down enough the small piece on the frame that holds the cylinder in place when it's open. It would turn empty, but catch the cartridge head as it turned. There was also a piece of steel scrap inside the grips that every once in a while kept the gun from being SA cocked until I figured out what was happening. It was moving around under the grips, so didn't always happen.

It also spit lead out the side when fired, the cylinder wasn't properly aligned.

Sent it back to the factory, and they only partially fixed it. Had to send it back a second time. It was my off duty gun and I never trusted it after that.

Traded it to a judge for a beautiful German Walther PPK/S in .380.

Wow! So in your vast experience, what is the best pistol to wear to Starbucks?

Thanks!

You need a Barbeque Gun. Nickel, engraved, with a carved leather holster and belt.
