    Once had am old Hawes .44 mag that also "shot loose" , and the cylinder base pin would work loose very easily. Swapped it as soon as I could. Mike

    Ruger MK I Assembly

    I have a OLD Standard model. Some time back, I replaced the barrel, etc. with a stale version that is stamped "Mark II Target", ad have had the original barre/receiver just "laying around". Recently I found a "used" grip section ad bought it hoping to make my old barrel/receiver a "pistol"...

    Zero Turn Mowers
