Default rugers

The investment casting method is still followed by machining same as all other handguns. That casting don't bother me a bit because of 3 things:#1-quality of steel,#2-overall tolerances,#3-ALL steel is cast at one point when originally produced!!!!!!! I consider rugers "bombproof" overengineered. That means that they are as strong as any firearm you'll find in their class.
I'm a HUGE ruger fan but still miss a few guns they discontinued such as the old 44 semiauto carbine,original m77 with tang safety and adjustable trigger and some discontinued cartridges in some model lines.

the only thing i can add it they make a great SAA western gun (i have owned 3), great 22 auto simi-auto handguns (i have owned one), THE BEST 22 rifle in existence, and a very good 223 in the mini-14.
but for 9mm and other DA etc I don't really like them

I would not give it a seconds thought, 9 times out of 10 a revolver gets mutilated buy an inexperienced hand loader not buy factory ammo, the only exception would be using modern ammo in an older or antique firearm, for obvious reasons.

I've had 2 Blackhawks, 1 Vaquero, 1 GP100, 1 10/22, and 1 95DC 9mm. The revolvers are great! Semi-autos are extremely ugly, but they work great, espeically considering the price. I've found them to be very durable. Never had one break, which is more than I can say for other similarly priced guns.

I'm a huge fan of the 2 models I have experience with. My dad has a 22LR/22 Mag Single six that I love! It's fun to shoot, very accurate(3/4" group at 25 yards.....6" barrel) and cheap! My old roommate had a Mark III Hunter that was a BLAST to shoot! Again, in 22LR.....cheap to shoot and very accurate.
I've got to admit I'm intrigued by the new .327 Fed Mag so Ruger has my attention once again......I'm not really looking at this as a self defense round, it might be ok, but I see a limited point to the niche it fills. I'm looking at this as a new small game round and hoping to see it in a lever action rifle!

Ruger handguns are top of the line for reliability. Think of them as the AK-47 of handguns. They sure aren't pretty. They aren't the nicest of guns. But they really are well built and will probably be around and usable until the gun goes supernova.

Have both single and double action Ruger revolvers. No incidents with either.

My GP100 is one of my least favorite guns, always bruises my hand. None of my other 4 do this, not even my .44 Magnum.
