Rugers do have the worst triggers of the autos. Like any new gun, I'd assume that there will have to be bugs worked out. I've found that most new guns that have problems can be linked to the magazine somehow. I also will wait until a model has been out for awhile before I get one if I'm interested so they can get the kinks worked out before I get mine.John reveiw I read wasn't all that great. It's only been out few months. Word up was trouble with mag release, and also a not too great trigger. GUNS, April this year.
I always wait for a lot to roll off the line fore I jump on. I do like Ruger's.
Ruger issued a recall April 9.Boots,
I bought one on Wednesday afternoon. I took it to the range yesterday. I fired 200 rounds and it operated flawlessly. The trigger pull is a bit different than anything I have fired before. It took about 1 1/2 mags (about 25 shots) to get used to it. I really like it alot.
BTW, thanks for your reply.
That really sucked for your friend, they should have just wrote the article themselves...I hope your friend dropped his subscription asap!I LOVE my Ruger Pistols, My weekend R&R is my Ruger Pistols and Remington Rifles. I have a KP90, P85, Redhawk's in 41 Mag and 44 Mag, and Black Hawks in 41, 44 and 45LC. BUT (there always is a But) I would not trust a magazine writeup PERIOD!!
A friend of mine did a 3 issue article in an automotive mag about aftermarket cylinder heads. His shop did all of the work, the mag supplied the parts and they were returned to the mag. His findings were written up in the articles. He sent the dyno information and article to the magazine and when it came out on the news stand the findings and information were altered. The best 2 heads were made by the same company (Company X) and the 3rd best was by another company (Company Y).
His article and dyno test sheets showed Company X's heads were the best per his findings. The finial article had NOTHING about Company X in it and it showed that the best was Company Y's heads.
He called them and asked why the findings and article were changed and they said point blank that Company Y was a big advertiser with the company that owns the magazine and they were the company that supplied all of the parts to show how good there product was, so there produce was going to be the best.
It just shows how some of the magazines work. It is all about the Dollar! After his experience with them I started looking at articles as to what they left out that was a popular item and is surprised me how many times something seemed off. Now I read them for infotainment! (new word for ya!!) I check the information against my own notes and other sources. Most of the information is good but there will always be a question in my mind now.That really sucked for your friend, they should have just wrote the article themselves...I hope your friend dropped his subscription asap!
