Notice of shipment received, 17 Mar 21; ADULT SIGNATURE REQUIRED!
Geoff
Who wonders what the current definition of an Adult is? As long as they don't ask My Lady Wife's opinion, I should be OK.

Revolver was returned, via UPS at 1800 hours 3/17/2021.

"Additional Notes:
Returning firearm
Reamed cylinder chambers
Fired 32 rounds Blazer 40 grain
Repair, safety function check, Range test & cleaning have been completed, released for shipping."

I took it to the range this morning, 3/18/2021, I fired 100 rounds of the nastiest .22 LR ammo I had; Remington Vipers high pressure and dirty. I had NO PROBLEMS with ejecting the fired cases.

I am VERY pleased with Ruger Service, turn around time ONE WEEK shipping to receipt.

Glad it works for you now. How was the accuracy on the 100 rounds you fired?

Glad (but not surprised) to read it ended well.

On a somewhat related topic, does anyone know when Ruger went to the 8 round cylinder on the SP-101 .22?

I had to return a Smith K22 to the factory for the very same problem in the early '90s. Expected it to be gone for months, had it back in less than two weeks, has worked perfectly ever since and is now a favorite. Glad to hear your story has a happy ending! :wink:

Seems like about 2012 from my memory. The 6-shot .22s were discontinued for a while before the 8-shot ones came out.

Is that why the cylinder was fixed instead of replaced? Because perhaps they didn’t have any parts available?

Or would it have been possible to convert it to an 8 shot model?

The brass became too difficult to extract. The pointy cylinder pin didn't help. When you have to push in down on a table to clear the brass, something is wrong. It got worse with age. I will find out what Sturm, Ruger et al say.
Age of the gun? Almost brand new, I bought it in June of 1993, no mods.
Geoff
Who owns six Rugers two long guns, two revolvers, two semi auto pistols.


A S&W 617, 10-shot .22LR wouldn't eject after all 10 were fired.

I guessed that the problem was too much expanded surface area of the fired cases (2/3 more, vs. 6-shot) or rough chambers hindering smooth extraction.

Gunsmith had a go at it, said that the star had burrs or uneven edges, causing the fired cases to push to the outside.

We'll find out if the fix was correct, haven't tried yet.

Why 32?

Isn't this a 6-shot?

Guessing if a cylinder replacement had been needed, Ruger would have offered a replacement firearm or a discount on the purchase of one.

8 shot model probably has somewhat different internals, particularly cylinder hand and possibly cylinder stop. Not sure if conversion is possible.

Only Ruger knows for sure, but it was on a Friday afternoon, might have emptied the box.

Who notes 100 rounds worked too!
