ruger precision 6.5 creed

I just bought the 6.5 last week. last night I was looking at it and noticed a couple of things . the Sampson hand guard is not in line with the receiver its about 15 deg. to the right . well I thought that I could fix this by rotating the hand guard nut . but the guard has two ears that fit to each side of the scope base . so you cannot rotate the hand guard with out moving the base .not a big deal so the bipod will sit a little crooked. so next I put the gun in my gun cleaning vise and leveled the gun side to side off the stock mount bottom that's what's its called in the instruction manual. put the level on the scope base and its off . so for $1400.00 for the gun and $500.00 vortex scope and rings should I just screw it down while not leveling it . because if nothing else is square to each other part of the receiver what would it matter. I have been machining here in NH for more than 30 years of my 55 years of being on this planet and could do a better job of machining these parts. the 20 deg. base should have two notches cut into it to allow it to rotate slightly. and the stock mount bottom should be parallel to the receiver any help would be appreciated bob

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.

Ruger customer service is very good about minor problems so I think a major one will be taken care of swiflty.
