I'm going to assume it is toast - sorry, bad pun - and likely build a shadow box for it. But I'll also check the springs and contact Ruger, as suggested. If I shadow box it, I'll disable it. If nothing else, I can weave some stories for the grandkids about the gun in the shadow box.

The Ruger contact is a great idea. Call Alex Jones, who can call Ted Nugent, who will call the NRA contact for Ruger and I bet they give you a new gun.

Just a suggestion, but wood burns easier than metal(takes a lot of heat for metal)might try asking a gunsmith and see what he thinks.

Send it to Ruger. They will check it out, and if it is bad will send you a new one, no charge.
They have a great reputation for customer service.
