GP100 muzzle crown to be serviced

Hello,

My name is Eric and I joined this sight after reading the thread regarding a poorly executed muzzle crown on a Ruger GP100. Well, I am in the same boat and sent the gun to Ruger through my local dealer before asking for a shipping label (and before joining this sight). The dealer said that Ruger usually only helps with shipping on recalled items, but evidence here suggests otherwise.

I didn't notice the below standard crown until I had already shot the pistol 100 times, cleaned it and put it away for about a month. After getting it out for another session it really caught my eye. Sorry folks, I don't have photos but it was bad enough that the local dealer thought that I had tried to do something with a file, which is absurd. I swore that I had not touched it, only cleaning the NIB piece with a boresnake and CLP. Anyway, he sent the piece to Ruger Friday ASAP and I will probably be out at least $30 shipping for the trip there. I hope they will at least pick up the cost for return shipping.

I plan on keeping this pistol for a lifetime and was not pleased with the rough cut crown. I like to shoot accurately and take pride in my ownership of Ruger firearms. The first pistol I ever shot was my grandfather's Ruger standard and the first gun that I ever purchased was a Walmart special 10/22 in SS with the gray/green.mannlicher stock. Both are still around. Maybe some customers wouldn't have noticed the crown but I did (although I should have much sooner).

I have e-mailed customer service and the CEO just to touch base. Otherwise my local dealer will probably be handling the phone calls with Ruger Service. I did take a copy of the original thread regarding the a GP100 and a poor muzzle crown on this site to my dealer to show that I am definitely not alone in this manner and not handy with a file. He just couldn't believe that the factory would let it pass as standard, and I can't either. I asked Ruger in my e-mail to service my pistol to a higher factory standard.

I will keep everyone updated,

Thank you DeerHearse for your original thread,

God Bless,
EricW

Eric, welcome to the forum and good luck with your GP.
Your main mistake was in not calling Ruger before sending it in. They would have sent you a shipping label without a doubt and you wouldn't be out of pocket anything. Hopefully your dealer did just that and you won't incur any charges. I can't imagine sending in a gun without calling or shooting an e-mail to someone.... I think that section of the manual was written in 1949.

I agree....I don't have a lot of experience in servicing guns, so I relied on his experience and judgement. He said Ruger would contact him in a few days and then he would know and call me... I don't know.....live and learn.

Welcome from the Heart of Texas. Too bad you didn't have photos. It would help.

Welcome from Pennsylvania,Muzzle crowns can be critical to accuracy and overlooked when I can be hit by an obstruction.

When I noticed that the crown on my pistol was not smooth called ruger they said no problem send it in.So they have it now cant wait to get her back.I know on my match rifles that crown best be smooth and even.On the GP100 it looked like rings of different sizes just did not look right.
