Was thinking about getting one but after seeing so many problems with them going to start looking into other companies, can you give any update after you put some rounds thought it.

Dont care what the manual says.
Chamber iron and quit dry firing it.
Should be good to go.
I always recommend seeing where the pin actually strikes, if the pin is tapered, and if the pin is made out of something harder than the surface it is hitting.

I have dry fired my 10/22 thousands of times....no issue. However, I would never dry fire older semi auto 22 handguns, nor some of the older Colt and Ruger revolvers.

Side note....don't fan the hammer. I've seen more issues with that recently. I don't know if cowboy westerns have been hot on on the Flix of Net or what, but Jeebus!

Ive run old Colts, High Standard, Rugers, Brownings and other.
Even if the manual says dry fire OK, I just avoid it on rimfires.

Have seen many cylinders w hits between chambers from fanning LOL
Usually on cheap German SA stuff.

I never got into playing cowboy.

The old HS are NOTORIOUS for the chamber firing pin mark. I cannot tell you how many I've had to iron or rechamber.

I know everyone is on edge waiting on the conclusion of this issue.

I received the reimbursement from Ruger today.

Should I update everyone again once the check clears? :)
