Received this revolver several days ago and almost did not accept it, from my FFL dealer. While the gun is new the cylinder appeared to have been cycled through the gun many many times. Having 50 plus years of experience with new and used guns, this cylinder shows lots of wear.
I contacted Ruger customer service about the issue, who offer no explanation of the excessive wear marks on the cylinder. Was told I could return the gun to Ruger at my expense, but they could not tell me if they would replaced the marked up/used cylinder. So all in all I'm disappointed with the quality of this revolver and will not being buying any additional Rugers (own 6 currently) in the future.
Bud's prices and delivery are very good and hard to beat. This is not an issue for Buds, but is one for Ruger.
Buds get 5 stars and Ruger get 2
