If any gun ships from Ruger that is not 100 percent it's on Ruger. I don't know about this factory 2nd theory but if it's true that's a good way to go out of business. Is there any proof of this? I noticed too that some local chain stores lock the guns up so you can't work the action, store policy. I don't like that and that is why I go to my local Gun shop here in town. I'm not sure what to make of this.

That would be a refurbished gun, not a second.

One gunshop I used to frequent, now closed, had guns displayed in pegs w/ the peg into the muzzle, gun just hanging ere. As far as I was concerned they were all 'seconds or thirds."

The shop closed when the grandson, a felon, sold a gun to an ATF dude.

Factory seconds has to be a poor choice of words for new Rugers with cosmetic issues worse than normal(which isn't that good). If I could pick up a new GP100 with a few scratches for a substantial savings, I would. Both my stainless Ruger revolvers(SP101,GP100) needed some sandpaper work to smooth out sloppy brush strokes anyway.
