I received an email from UPS on 10/01/2012 with a tracking # for the return of my rifle. The estimated delivery date is 10/10/2012 (end of day).
I called Ruger on 10/02 just to ask what was wrong with it. After a looooooooooong hold I was disconnected. I was called back about 30 minutes later with an apology for the disconnection. The lady informed me that the rifle had shipped and that the bolt and "some other stuff" (her exact words) were replaced. She also told me that the pakage would contain a detailed list of what was fixed and that the rifle was test fired and functioned normally.
