I definitely would not shoot that gun with that barrel. If was working and then quit because of a bulge on the outside of the barrel, it had to bulge while shooting. And if was bulged on the outside from shooting, it had to bulge out from the inside also. That indicates a weak spot in the barrel. And his grinding away metal had to weaken it even further.

I think Ruger will do you right. I have only had one dealing with Ruger customer service. I lost a screw to one of my Blackhawks. They sent me a replacement at no charge.

The inside the barrel was fine. That's what's so odd.

Also I put it in the mail via ups yesterday ($40) so it is on the way.

So I just called ruger to check the status of my gun. The guy on the phone said it was in the "process" of being repaired.

you prolly wouldnt be able to really tell just looking down the bore. but removing the bulge by turning in a lathe definately weakened it.

ruger definately has good service. called em about the barrel band shooting off my 44 carbine semi auto they offered to replace the gun with a bolt gun. all i wanted was to buy a barrel band. i kept my carbine

I would just like to say that this dealing with ruger has been the worst experience ever. It has been almost a month and they just now sent me a price estimate of $95. I called and they said it was a round induced bulge. They also said that since the gunsmith lathed it down it also voided the warranty (even though they told me it was perfectly fin originally).
