And some QUALITY CONTROL wouldnt hurt one bit.

Some of the crap they send out the door for sale is shameful.

The past few years theyve pretty much totally ruined their reputation IMO.

Question

Those cylinders look pretty Bizarre to these traditional old eyes. Wonder what Whiz Kid at Ruger got a bonus or promotion for coming up with that idea, when a simple chamfer of the front edge of the cylinder would have accomplished the same thing if easier reholstering was the goal?

10-4 on the OVERPAID knucklehead trying to justify his job.

Removing metal from the cylinder of a revolver with 48,000 + PSI of cylinder pressure just DONT seem like it makes very good sense.

Like the cylinder or not. You got a nice gun. Now you need to start reloading for it. It is really an adaptable caliber. Good luck with it.

Quality is very poor on the new double-action guns.
Fit and finish look very amateurish.
Hopefully the new CEO will address this!

My feelings as well as much as I like Rugers I have been fortunate not to have problems with fit. Some issues with rough edges on my SP101 mfg. 2008 SP101 the hammer spurr trigger guard and trigger all had very sharp edges that I had to polish with my dremel tool!!!

I am looking to buy a SP101 3" in near future.....probably gonna buy used don't like new cylinder, it takes away from the "Tank" appeal and tries to make it "pretty".
