Thanks for all the replies.
Well, if you get over to the Introductions part of the forum and tell us about yourself, you'll get a personalized description about how to post photos from one of our Moderators.

Here is one pic of gun after barrel blew off. If this works I'll post a few more.

Your right, it did blow off.
Looks to me like it has been broken for awhile.
Ruger will take care of it, and the rep has heard of that before.

Default Barrel

For Ruger to touch it all parts would have to be returned to them. It does look to have been cracked for some time from the pics. WOW...Still got all the pink wiggleys?

That barrel has been working on coming for a while now. Every time you shot it the crack spread until it couldn't hold anymore....at least thats what it looks like. I'd send it to Ruger.

WOW... A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Momark, Thank you SO MUCH for posting these pics... Good job! I sympathize with you and hope you'll keep us informed on this string about how your dealings with Ruger proceed as this is a rare and interesting case. WOW.
