    The process is called forging. It is not sintered steel. Ruger and many other firearms use the
    powdered metal castings. It seems some people do not understand basic metallurgy. If you are

    Cap. To a point, all steel is cast, as that's where the milled steel starts off from. Bar,
    rail, or block, it was all cast at one time or another in a foundry somewhere.True enough.

    Let me add this in all fairness to "Big Box Stores":I frequently browse, and make purchases

    Actually yes. There were sub-compact sized ones (like 4" long) and others ranging up towards
