    Hey everyone. I have a small problem with a Ruger Vaquero I've had for quite some time now. It is .45 LC and the problem is that the base pin will slide forward while shooting, like the latch pin is being pushed in, but it isn't. Has anyone had this problem, or have an idea how to fix it? I've taken it apart and tried to figure it out, but it looks like the base pin and the latch really don't make contact. Thanks!
