The firearm was shipped to me fairly fast - took nearly 2 months to pick it up from the FFL since I live in the communist country of NJ (took that long for the local PD to issue the voucher permit required to purchase any handgun).
Took the gun to the range - the revolver felt comfortable (replaced the original grips with hogue grips) in my hand and it had some wait to it which is a good thing when u shoot 357mags.
Put 20rds or 38SP and then 10rds of 357mag -- after which the cylinder started locking and wouldn't rotate fully on its own.
I called ruger -- I have to say, their custommer service is just "EXCELLENT".
Explained the pblm - they sent me trough email a shipping tag with FEdEX for overnight shipping. Sent in my firearm and got it back 10 days later (They had to replace the wahl and the ejector).
The firearm has functioned flawlessly since then.
As far as the firearm -- it has a bite more bite than I would have expected from a 27oz revolver -- shoots 38s fairly accurate -- the 357mags are brutal.
Overall I''m very pleased with this revolver - would highly recommend.
