I decided to sell this gun and called the factory one last time.....well they asked if they could call me back as there seemed to be a discrepancy.....seems the gun was shipped twice...the first time as a BKH46 and the second as a BKH47 as Street has stated .......WOW was I glad I called the 3rd and last time...had to get a letter as it does not have the usual S stamp .....ain't Ruger collecting fun.....see ya RR.

Again thanks for the info.this forum is great and others are so so.

Chet 15; This one has the straight slot in the ejector housing.is that the proper one? Thanks for the help
