Hi,

Yesterday, while cleaning my GP100, I noticed the inner edge of the forcing cone looks like it's been hammered. I don't remember it being like this when it was new, but then again, I don't always check the cone.
The revolver is only a few months and about 1000 rounds old (all jacketed).
Is this normal? Do I need to send it back to Ruger?

That doesn't look good. Does the cylinder hit the forcing cone? Have you checked the cylinder gap all around? Could that be erosion? Do you shoot heavy handloads with ball powder and really light bullets?

I'm no expert but I think a forcing cone re-surfacing is probably in order.

Welcome to the forum. :D

thanks Jimbo,

I only shoot factory magnums and light magnum reloads. Nothing hot.
I guess it goes back to Ruger.
thanks all

Looks like it might be out of time. Does it spit lead from the barrel/cylinder gap back on you while shooting?

yes, sometimes it does but not always.
