Hi guys. I’ve posted the same thing on another forum but would like some more thoughts. I'm new to this gun thing which is probably why I'm having questions now. That and I unfortunately didn't have my glasses with me when I bought a new GP100 last weekend (hasn't been fired by me). I'm only wondering if Ruger GP100's typically have machining errors here and there. I’m not looking for perfection but I also don’t want one of the worst examples. Hopefully I will be posting three photos of the two areas in question, two of which is one of the locking notches. All
the notches have what appears to be a small amount of metal missing on an edge as well as what looks to be a small section of raised metal with a corresponding crack? Another photo shows what I'd say is bad machining but I don't know what the part is called... Hopefully the photo will clear this up. I sent the three photos to the dealer but he tells me he can’t tell what I’m talking about from looking at them. I would certainly apprecate any ideas/opinions.
