Also, are you generalizing for all Rugers you've ever seen, or do you own specific models and/or model years where this is evident, and if so, which ones?

Buy it or not, it's the truth. The New Model is designed that way. Has nothing to do with a sixgun getting "used", no matter how condescendingly you say it. It has everything to do with timing. A properly timed sixgun, as most traditional half cock guns are, will not ring the cylinder if handled properly. No matter how much it gets "used". Although a great many Old Models have early rising bolts and do indeed, ring the cylinder.Heavy Barrel":1rby7a8z said:Yosemite Sam":1rby7a8z said:It's due to the way the Ruger "New Model" (for 35+ years) lockwork works.

b) You obviously Don't Get It, and you're not going to Get It until you read up on why it happens and what can possibly be done to avoid it. If you think me or anyone else is going to rehash information that's already been posted "a zillion times", then, well, good luck with that!
Don't play the victim, you asked a legitimate question, got some legitimate and more importantly CORRECT answers and then you questioned them. It is we who should be rolling our eyes. :roll:Heavy Barrel":18tkagrp said:Well,I'm awfully damn sorry I ask.
