    I’ve had that happen too. Saw it was delivered on tracking, ran home and put it inside. Back to work.

    I ship mine from Sportsmans Warehouse and pick them up there as well. I pay shipping. No muss/no fuss.

    Yikes.

    as inconvenient as the situation is, I’m glad they’re not doing that. Sacramento seems to be the porch pirate capital of the country.

    I have had FedEx leave two different guns sitting on my porch right out in the open on two different occasions but the kicker was FedEx delivered one of my Smith&Wesson revolvers to a lady down the street. :what:
    She signed for it, opened the box, saw the S&W box, opened that, saw the revolver then looked at the label and then brought it to me.

    Luckily she and her husband owned guns so she didn’t freak out and call the police. I am not sure what would have happened had she done that but I am glad I didn’t get to find out.

    Dude, you’ve been here long enough to know how these threads grow legs and run all over the place. Now check post #46 and become enlightened.....

    I guess ups is delivering today as they just dropped off my gun.

    the note says they replaced the cylinder, trigger, pawl, and ejector spring.

    I stand corrected on my suspicions and I’m blown away by the insanely fast turnaround time on this.

    Hard to make judgement till you have the object in question in your hand. I would assume turn around time is not only dependent upon the amount of work needing to be done, but also if there is a back-log of work ahead of it. Holidays and retooling downtime can make major impacts as do amount of new gun sales. New gun sales have dropped significantly, so would warranty work on new guns. Another thing would be the e-mail times. While there may have been only 15 minutes between the times you received those two e-mails, odds are there was more time than that between the time the gun was first looked at by the tech and the time it took to fix it. Would not surprise me if the tech wrote both e-mails at the same time as he probably does not have a computer on his workbench.

    Regardless, happy to hear you are happy with the work. The quick turn around is just frosting on the cake.

    It's the .45 ACP 1911 CMD and the .454 Casull SRH. Both are solid as a rock but I do have to say on the SRH it would not ignite the hard CCI small rifle magnum primers on DA so I gradually removed a few thousands from the hammer nose and shimmed the hammer and now it's 100% :)

    Reserve judgement until you’ve shot it some.

    FWIW...

    In case someone reading has trouble being at home for deliveries...

    I pay my friend at the LGS to box up handguns, ship them, and later receive them for me. I think he charges me $30. It's well worth it for me. He is always there to accept the delivery, and I can pick it up at my leisure.

    I had my LGS send out a Taurus semi auto for warranty service expecting it to ship back to the store. It showed up at my house instead. Luckily I was home.

    Ah, I have a 45 ACP SR-1911 CMD as well, but those don't look like factory grips unless that is on of the Distributor Exclusive version.

    No that is not possible. Everyone says Ruger Sucks!:)

    Glad you got it fixed!:thumbup:
    Gee thanks "Bro"
    I am not a "Dude" post #46 doesn't enlighten anything said in this thread. It is now a Shipping pickup issue

    Post # 57 is enlightening!

    Guess that makes you a ‘gal’ then - so sorry for the incorrect gender assignment.

    What I intended you to find in post #46 was the reality that the revolver was not available so the resolution you demanded wasn’t possible until it was delivered. Since there was nothing new to add for awhile, the boys had to spend their time somehow....

    If memory serves I ordered them from Ruger. Pretty sure I did.

    I had a similar e-mail response thought when I sent my Redhawk .41 in, the e-mail confirming Rugers reception of the gun was followed shortly by an e-mail saying its fixed and heading home.

    Springs were replaced and gun was test fired, so I’ll also say the timelines for the e-mails may not be perfectly aligned. (My Gun has been great so far!)

    Hope all works well. Stay safe.

    Glad they handled your issue in an expeditious manner.

    I'm a longtime Ruger owner myself.

    I had an early production Redhawk .44 that had to go back, and they replaced the cylinder, hammer and entirety of the trigger guard assembly to resolve my problem.

    My early production KP90DC had to have the slide replaced to address a nasty galling problem between the hammer and the slide's pickup rail. They explained that a heat treat problem with the slide had occurred, and they replaced the slide.

    My SBH .44 had to go back to have the cylinder pin hole recut and deepened (known issue with the early production of the New Model SBH's, and mine was made in the early part of '73, being the first year's production of the new Model SBH).

    I corrected a couple issues with one of the .22 pistols I owned (short Bull barrel), and an issue with my SP101DAO seizing when it got hot, without having to return the guns to Ruger.

    The early 50's vintage 6" Ruger Standard .22 pistol I inherited from my father had an issue with the barrel coming unscrewed, but that was when my father had first bought it. He had a local smith install a set screw through the barrel/slide threading on the bottom of the barrel, and that flush set screw has never loosened in all the years I've owned and shot it.

    Oddly enough, only one of the Security/Speed/Service-Six .357's I owned ever had a problem, and I suspect that since it was bought Used it had been caused by the previous owner. (The blued 6" model had been electroless nickeled.) I traded that Ruger off on something I can't remember.

    Guess that makes you "conflicted" and a name caller
    I am one of this who actually read all the posts so I had read the post and was not enlightened.So get over it.

    Well, what an interesting thread. Especially to me since I own a SP-101 in .327 Fed Mag that had the cylinder sticking after less than 100 rounds. Ruger turned it around in a flash and the gun runs well now. Replaced the cylinder. Seems a chamber had stretched, allowing a case in each load to swell and stick. This was several years ago.

    How dare Ruger provide such splendid service and causing all that angst!
    Sheesh.
