My dealer had a .41 mag Bisley Hunter that was on clearance for $449.00 and I thought about that for a while. THEN they put on a 10% off on all clearance items sale on and you can quess what happened then. When I got to the range it was fed 5 different loads that have worked out well in years of tinkering with .41's.
To make the story short but not sweet.........I'm not happy. Group sizes averaged 3" at 25 yards from a rest! I never disassembled the gun when purchased. (I know, I know) When I got it home it made sense why warm loads tied up the cylinder some after firing all six. The chambers are rough as a cob and the throats look like they were done in a high school machine shop class. The feeler gauge showed a B/C gap of from .008" to .009".
A phone call to Ruger resulted in a terse little sweetie telling me that Rugers accuracy "standard" is TWO INCHES AT FIFTEEN YARDS and that if the gun met that level of accuracy they wouldn't do any thing with it.
I own other Rugers that are good quality and accurate but weren't produced recently. I'm not going on an anti Ruger tirade here but would advise anyone considering buying a new one to look it over carefully. This is probably the last new Ruger for me........I'd rather have a few really GOOD guns than a safe full of CRUDE and half-assed stuff!
