well i got my pistol back from Ruger yesterday and as i expected, their service is excellent!! They called me when they recieved the gun to let me know it made it there and they were starting to work on it.
They of course replaced the slide and components and to my great surprise they even put a new barrel on it for me as well!!! So after putting 10,000 rounds through it before it was sent to Ruger, i now have a pretty much brand new gun to start all over with again. Ruger you are the best!!!
