Sometimes our avocation can become a source of discontent for us when looking at things through our professional eyes. A professional jockey will never be happy riding anything but a Thoroughbred. A professional race car drive will never be happy driving an ordinary Chevy or Ford 4 cylinder sedan. As a retired hospital CFO and CEO, I never see a hospital's billing process or emergency room performance as adequate. You are a professional who works within a profession built or exacting tolerances and absolutely fine fitment requirements. I totally understand your disappointment in the lack of exactitude and perfection in the RPR you just purchased. But I think you will find flaws in every single firearm you or any of us will ever purchase because of their production practices. Most flaws do not effect accuracy because most of us do not shoot up to the potential of the firearm. So we are happy with what we have. Some flaws, however, become so noticeable to us that we just are never happy with owning the firearm and we get rid of it. You are in that position right now. You have to decide if the flaws are something you just don't want to abide. If you don't, ask Ruger to make adjustments. I'd at least call them and talk to them about it. Machinists work too hard for their money to spend it on something that they can't overlook and that they would be unhappy with. We all do. We all think of firearms as almost a work of art when they were originally designed to be a tool. But we expect them to perform and look like a very fine set of calipers, not a rough old beat up bastard file. Having said all this, every one of my firearms have odd tool marks and even minor blemishes on them I still would not part with any of them.
