Yeah, I hear you. I was on edge about this project from the moment he told me it was in a house fire. Sending it back to Ruger sounds like a good idea but don't know if he will like hearing it. Don't think he will send it back to ruger but I know he wants me to fix it.
As a smith I can't tell him that it will be safe to shoot without having alot of text done on it that I can't afford. And I'm sure he wouldn't want to drop that kinda cash into it before we even start to repair it.
What to do?
