I am sending my Blackhawk to Ruger tomorrow morning using a FedEx Express 2nd day air shipping label that they emailed me. I picked up a medium size 2nd day air box at the FedEx store to use for shipping. Any tips to share with me? I plan on using foam type packing material and plenty of strapping tape.

Thank you,

If you have a plastic case that Ruger uses that would be my choice in a FedEx box with plenty of tape.

I was thinking of using the green plastic box it came in new. But if they keep the box I won't use it for shipping.

The one time I had to return a Ruger, a MKII, I used the factory case and they returned it in the same case.

Do you mean gray plastic, or green? Green would be rare, I think? If you have gray box, that's what ruger will return your blackhawk in. I would keep original box with gun whatever color.--bedrockfred

I think you will get back a gray box with out a label in a cardboard shipper box, but that's just my guess, I have many blackhawks, none came in a green plastic box. -- bedrockfred

I would be worried I would not get serial numbered box back from Ruger, green indeed had me puzzled?-- bedrockfred

Remove any aftermarket parts including grips if different that when ruger sent out new from the factory!

Bedrockfred & Roger,

She is packed up nice and secure for her trip back to the factory. I appreciate your helpful guidance.

wrapped mine in plastic bag with barrier paper, rolled that up in bubble wrap. Used an old but good plain brown box sealed with strapping tape & the Ruger return label. Gun came back in Ruger heavy paper board box.
