Wouldn't you think that as many of this type rifle that had been made over the decades the big-boy makers would have it down by now? So, it doesn't fire when you want it to, and it does fire when you don't want it to....Go Ruger!!!

One reason I would just as soon have an SKS.

As much as I like an SKS I don't think I would put it in the "Precision Rifle" role/category.

Not excusing Ruger but would compare apples to apples. Maybe a Sako, Savage Tikka, Remington, Winchester, bolt action would be a better comparison.

Precise in the same way as a stopped clock apparently. It is precise twice a day.

If it make you feel better, I will substitute a Swede M-96, that is precision out of the box, and it actually works.

Didn't mean to bash Ruger. They are making it right.

Don't have one.

having a defect or problem isn't. or shouldn't be the issue, but in how Ruger deals with the defect or problem.

if Ruger is going to stand behind their products, and take care of the consumer over the defect, then that is good enough for me.

any manufacturer can make mistakes, and have a product that is defective, for whatever reasons, but in how they deal with that problem, as in customer service and warranty, and taking care of the customer, is what should be a factor that most should take into consideration.

Chainfire: your reply bespeaks your ignorance. The "Precision Rifle" has only been out a couple of years, and is a bit of a departure from bolt actions that came before it. The aluminum bolt shroud was a change in the second version of the rifle, because too many people who couldn't be bothered to read the instructions had problems with the original plastic shroud.

RJ thanks for the heads up. I'm well past the hundred rounds where it might happen on my Gen II rifle, and it isn't an issue with the Gen I rifles

It is a closer comparison. I kick myself for not picking up a 96 when they were cheap and plentiful.

If you get a chance, you should correct that error.
