Ruger single-six cylinder gap.

New model single-six has what I think is too much cylinder gap. Ruger told me it can be 3-9 thou. and be ok. At that time I did not notice the gap is slightly wider at the top of gap. The thinest feeler gauge I have is 10 thou. It will not go into the bottom of the gap but feels like it MIGHT go in tightly at the top of gap if the top strap was not there. Gun shots great. I just neeed more plinking practice. Is this worth being concerned about or should I just continue to enjoy gun. Thanks.

You said it shoots great? Shoot it!

Don't sweat the small stuff. A tight cylinder gap will give you a bit higher velocities, but not enough to worry about it.

Don't Worry About It

I agree with Daryl +1.
