The funny thing about metal fatigue once it's had it's temper tinkered with by such things as house fires is- there is no set rule to when it will stretch, crack, or totally let go.

Whether you shoot it 5 times or 500 times- you don't know if something bad will happen the 6th or 501st shot. And just for sake of argument, if the worst happens to your customer- who do you think his survivors will line up to sue first?

If nothing else, send it back to Ruger. They may do hardness testing, etc- or they may do you a favor and scrap it as unsafe. Let the folks who've been building firearms longer than us make the important decision.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
