I had to re-do everything.
The best way to get rid of the stampings is to have the barrel draw filed, re-polished and re-blued.
I guess that's Ruger's way to C.Y.A.
Even though we don't agree with it,they're going to do it unfortunately.
My thoughts are once that gun is sold to a individual, Ruger(or any other Mfg) shouldn't be allowed to touch or change anything other then it what it was sent back to them for.Allot of people spend hard earned money into getting their guns the way they like them. One trip back to the factory and all that work is ruined.
About the only way around it is take it to a smith,then again some parts are factory fit or exchange only.No win situation at best.
