I was interested to know if anybody else on this forum is familiar with this. I plan to contact Ruger tomorrow.
I'm going to have to guess that it happens more often than you think. I have never run into this problem with a Ruger but did to with a Taurus. Had to send it in twice, before it got repaired and the last time, there were a nuber of tool marks. That one did not last long, in my collection. ...
Now then, I caught this right from the start and we should always be looking for this problem as soon as we can. You are certianly justified in sending it back to Ruger, for repairs. ...
Be Safe !!!
