I will say it SURE IS, target shows 10 shot group one small ragged hole, about 1/2 to 3/4". I am a happy camper to say the least ! my "patterns" to begin with were 10 shots with a good 6-8" spread , good ammo with a solid rest 2 hand hold at 15 yards. I will get it to the range ASAP, looks like it WILL BE A KEEPER now. I am not going to even change the grips or firing pin until I try it. when I clean it I will add my basket weave Altamont grips AND the TK titanium "one hole" firing pin. I have a optics rail, I think I will add a reflex style red dot I already have. my old eyes just do not work too well any more with irons ! this has been a good end to an un happy new pistol purchase, BRAVO RUGER C/S, you made me 100% happy !! handled well, very professional , and didn`t cost me one penny. they even included a free yellow Ruger polishing cloth in the package.
That is a good result but disappointing that Ruger would supply such a basket case in the first place, us foreigners don't get any factory service at all. Can't see any reference to the magazine drag problem, is that OK now?
