    Options for installing open sights on a Ruger American Ranch

    I stand corrected -- it is a Ruger American Rifle (308) not Ranch. :oops:

    Options for installing open sights on a Ruger American Ranch

    Has anyone on the forum tried to install open sights on a Ruger American Ranch Rifle in 308? I currently have a red dot on mine now but would like to have a back up sight option.

    Ruger factory AI (308) magazines in a Magpul Hunter Stock?

    Has anyone that owns a Ruger American Predator installed a Magpul Hunter Stock on it and used Ruger factory AI mags in the Magpul Hunter Stock? I was thinking about getting a Magpul stock for my Predator. I have quite a number of Ruger AI mags for my Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle and was hoping the...

    Ruger American Predator, older model magazine options?

    I just purchased an unfired Ruger American Predator in 308 with the rotary magazine. I have a Ruger Am. Ranch in 5.56 with the detachable magazine. I'm really impressed with the Am. Ranch in 5.56 but the rotary magazine on the Predator 308 seem about as cheap and flimsy as could possibly be...

    Series 184 Non-Ranch Mini 14 Rear Sight Assembly

    I'm looking for a complete rear sight assembly for the above rifle. I have a rifle that had the rear sight assembly removed to install a scope mount. Looking to return the rifle to it's original configuration. I posted a WTB ad in the classified. Anyone up here know where I might find one. Thanks.

    Current value of Ruger GP100 with 3" half lug barrel

    I feel your pain. The Peoples Republic of Maryland is rapidly heading the way of California as far unreasonable gun restrictions go.

    Current value of Ruger GP100 with 3" half lug barrel

    That is a beautiful blued version. Didn't know they were produced in blue. The one I have is stainless. Thanks for the reply.

    Current value of Ruger GP100 with 3" half lug barrel

    I got a trade offer for the above revolver which is in very good condition. I was wondering what forum members thought a fair current value of this revolver would be?

    Oversize pawl for GP-100?

    The part # for a GP-100 pawl is KT00700. Does Ruger make an oversize pawl? If so what is it's part number? S&W makes an oversize pawl (they term this part a hand) that is about 5 to 6 thousands wider than their standard hand.

    Ruger GP-100 cylinder latch question

    Will do. Perhaps the problem I perceive is not a problem at all. Thanks for the additional info.

    Ruger GP-100 cylinder latch question

    Is there any harm in stoning off a few thousandths from the cylinder latch to get a little more rotation in the cylinder to allow a range rod to pass in to a couple of chambers that the range rod "ticks" on the chamber mouths? I'm guessing the cylinder latch in a Ruger is an investment cast part...

    Equalizing ratchet pads on older GP-100 ejector

    Thanks for the input; maybe the gun is ready for a trip to the factory.

    Equalizing ratchet pads on older GP-100 ejector

    Have an older GP-100 that the cylinder wouldn't carrier up and lock on a couple of chambers. I'm fitting a new pawl and have gotten to the point where three consecutive chambers will carry up, lock and pass a range rod but the other three won't. The pawl is still to wide on these three chamber...

    GP-100 crane/cylinder disassembly

    I finally got around to working on it. I tried something that I have used in the past to get stuck parts unstuck; especially disassembling the cylinders on S&W revolvers when it is difficult to get the ejector rod to unscrew from the extractor. I used a heat gun to heat the parts and it softens...
