It gets old quick when people defend a company that continues to put a product out that has known problems. Who should he blame besides Ruger; it's not his fault the gun doesn't work?.
A few months ago I bought my father a Browning Buckmark camper. I really liked the feel of the gun, and so did my father.
First trip to the range, and it a little bit of a pain. Every 2-3 rounds it would stove-pipe or fail to cycle, or jam. Went home and did a quick search on the internet, and found that with the Buckmark, it is a common issue, you need to shoot a few hundred rounds of hyper velocity ammunition through it to get things to loosen up. We tried stingers first, the gun would eject them fairly reliably, but the brass would fall at your feet. I had to order a few boxes of the Agula Hyper Velocity ammunition to get the spring to wear in.
Then I did a little more searching, and found that the plastic rear sight base is prone to cracking when it is hit by ejecting shells, or if not handled very gingerly when removed from the holster. I then called and ordered the replacement metal parts from Browning, and that cost me almost $70. I was not there to put the parts on my fathers guns, so I sent them to my father to put on. After my father installed them, it appears that Browning sent the wrong front sight, as now with the rear sight cranked all the way down, the pistol still shoots 2-1/2" high at 25 yards.
I was not all that iritated by the poor cyclinig of the gun, as it just needed to be worn in. I was a little bit iritated that I had to special order the highest power hyper velocity ammunition to get it to cycle correctly. I was rather iritated that I had to order parts from Browning to replace the substandard parts included with the pistol, and I am extremely iritated that Browning could not send me the right parts after I paid them $70.
