    I went through a couple of Red Labels, I bought one as a Target gun for skeet competition, had it tubed with Kolar tube set, was running about 30k rounds a year, when I got around 50thousand shells through it I was having problems, it went back to Ruger twice. I really loved shooting that gun, but I went to Beretta after that for my competition gun and couldn't be more pleased. I also had the Red Label 28 gauge, loved it, but after maybe 1000 rounds started having troubles with the triggers and selectors. I traded to a gun shop and told them it had occasional problems not firing. They wanted it pretty bad and gave me $400 more than I had paid for it for trade in.

    From what I hear Ruger shotguns will have problems average wise after about 10,000 rounds through them, some more some way less, I had some pictures of some of the internals in my guns that were deformed and peaned like the metal wasn't tempered right and too soft to hold up.

    That's exactly what my 12 gauge did in addition to light strikes. The last year I owned it I was always taking it to the gunsmith.
