It's possible, but I'd take it to a smith.
Whats wrong with it?

I damaged the cylinder and I was going to part it out.

Send it back to Ruger and let them fix it.

What kind of damage does the cylinder have?

Ruger stands behind their products, period. Great people.

My experience with Ruger hasn't been so good, I'd rather part it out then deal with them.

The barrel unscrews from the frame, but to remove it without damage to either requires a gunsmith with factory level training and tools. For the purpose you describe it would not be cost effective, IMO.

Would you be so good as to enlighten us as to the details of your experience? I had a Ruger Acusport Bisley (.45 Colt) that I sent back for service. It turned out they couldn't fix it, and had to scrap it. They gave me my choice for a replacement (Bisley in .44 Magnum) and they threw in an extra set of stocks, a $50 value. Yes, I didn't like the fact my Acusport had to be scrapped, but overall, the whole process was a pleasant one.

My biggest problem with Ruger is that they are very hard to communicate with. I found it retarded when I filled out their online contact form for the response to be call, then I call to be told to go to the web and send it in. I was unable to actually talk with anyone besides the phone jockey. I sent it in as I was so rudely instructed and it's been 6 weeks and they still have my gun. So far I’d compare my experience with Ruger to an Ebay deal gone bad trying to communicate with someone in a third world country.

Don’t misunderstand I have many Ruger’s and shoot them proudly, but I feel I’m on my own. But I will also say it’s been because of this experience I’m currently looking at Taurus too.

I didn't get to talk to a gunsmith, but the ladies I dealt with in New Hampshire were a pleasure to deal with. I do wish they had a 800 number, but at least I was never on hold.

Where are you located? If you're close, I might buy the whole gun.

If you think Ruger CS is bad, you got a whole nother learning experience ahead of you!
