I thought the quote attributed to Ed Harris, QC engineer at Ruger, explained this kind of failure quite well. But then, what do I know? I just work with steel, tools and dies, and precision machinery. Never felt qualified to nail two 2 x 4's together.
Gee I feel so special. . . you checked my Bio.
Awww. . . how sweet! Should I expect a gift soon?
Don't do much in the department of nailing 2 x 4s together though. Any experienced tradesman, machinist, etc would know that.
If you have such a vast history and personal experience of shooting Rugers, why would you feel the need to site another firearms forum, filled with average Joe's nailing 2x4s together, in order to back-up your claim of Rugers "shedding their barrels"? Are they like snakes? They just shed their barrel after a few hundred rounds go down the pipe.
Keep up that steel work, it's teaching you a lot about guns!
