Re: rugers?

I think that the biggest problem with Rugers is their barrels , every one I have seen fouled like a bad pipe. I have seen a few customes that were built of Ruger actions and they shot as good as any Rem built properly.
Being their a controled round feed action their not as easy to work on but they do make fine guns.

I reciently just put one together for a friend its an older tang safety in 7mm mag , I replaced the trigger with a timeny unit , piller bedded it in a nice older stock and free floated the barrel , it will shoot around an inch with every factory load he puts in it , accuracy falls off fast after about 6-10 rounds and needs to be cleaned but other than that its a great deer gun

Dang I missed the everybody group AGAIN [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
The recoil lug can be tricky to get bedded properly and there have ben barrel issues through the years but they make a great huntin rifle. I have ben buying Savages as of late but the Rugers aint leaveing!!

Re: rugers?

Yes, but every once in a while you get a real screamer in every way possible. And when ya do, they are as good as you can get.......

Re: rugers?

My ruger's foul way less than my new 700's. I've had excellent luck w/ the rugers and the accuracy is excellent.
