isn't worth the paper it's written on. I fired 4 boxes of winchester target rounds through it one day. The 100 count boxes I purchased from walmart back when they were $20 a box and during the last box I started to notice the slide was starting to hang up. I stopped and took the mag out and worked the slide by hand and it was hanging up pretty badly and I couldn't figure out what was wrong ... took it apart and inspected it to see if there was something between the slide and barrel and there was nothing so I put it back together and it fired okay but then after the barrel warmed up it started doing it again. Then it got bad enough I had to start closing the slide with my thumb. then it got so bad it wouldn't close so I laid it down and after it cooled it closed on it's own. I took it home and looked it over and found that the barrel had swollen on the last 3/4 of an inch so since I was the original purchaser of the weapon it was still under warranty so I sent it in after finding out how by getting RMA number and all that. I get a call from Rob at springfield and he told me that it was my fault and that something had to have gotten stuck in the barrel to cause that and it'd be $125 to repair it. So ... I say again ... Springfield Warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on and buyer beware. Their warranty doesn't mean squat.

doubt you'll have any problem with ruger but then I thunk I"d never had a problem with springfield either. I'm gonna lean towards taurus from now on I spose. They got a lifetime warrantee on their guns and don't try to say it's your fault when you send one in for repair. I got the taurus wheel gun 357 mag and it had some issues so I looked up their warrantee and to my suprise they had lifetime warrantee on all their guns and you don't have to be the initial owner like you do with springfield so I sent it in and got it back in perfect shape no muss no fuss. I sent in a complaint to the BBB on springfield ... gonna see what I can't get done through that route. Probably won't anything come of it but I'll post it when I hear from them.

My brother had a problem with a Taurus. He's got one of those Judge deals, 410 shotgun and 45 long colt shooters. Seems a cylinder or two wasn't bored out correctly, and was way too tight...they took care of that with no problems. We've been of the opinion that those Taurus wheel guns are good, but the auto's may be suspect...that said, I have no experience with them.

I got rid of my big bore auto for carry, and got a little revolver...Ruger LCR 357, a pocket rocket. My last Ruger has a double warranty, I don't even have to send it to Ruger, Davidson's has a lifetime free replacement for Rugers. I spect they deal with the factory for ya.

I've actually had to send two new Rugers back to the factory. The first was a 9 1/2'' single six. The barrel was clocked about 90 degrees off of where it should have been. I should have known something was up when I noticed all of the warnings and what not on the underside of the barrel. Long story short it shot so far to the right that no amount of windage would get the bullet anywhere near the target.  I sent it back and they rebarreled it.  The second offender was a 3 1/2'' Bisley Super Blackhawk 44 mag. First time I took it out about every third or fourth shot it would just barely address the primer. Went through about 40 rounds of this by which time I also noticed the roll pin that holds the rear sight had also fallen out. I sent Ruger an email and had a response in about 45 minutes via phone call. Sent it back to them and its been fine ever since. Both instances had fast turnarounds and didn't cost me anything; they even reimbursed my shipping costs.
