As some of you know I purchased a brand new Ruger Super Redhawk .44 mag last month. I've been busy with work so I haven't had alot of shooting time and I've only managed to fire off maybe 30 rounds. Yesterday I had some spare time so I decided to clean it as it was getting powder fouled pretty bad. After cleaning I was inspecting the bore and noticed some very fine scratches on the rifle lands about 1/2 inch from the muzzle. I'm pretty anal about my guns so I've been rather upset after seeing this. My guess is the cleaning rod must have scraped the bore. I was using an aluminum rod which is now in the trash... The scratches appear across the face of two of the rifling lands and are about 1/8" wide running perpendicular to the rifling lands. They are very minor surface scratches, its not like I gouged into the barrel but I can feel a slight roughness when I slide a pick across them. Is this worth losing sleep, or am I over reacting? I've always been careful cleaning but this is the first time this has happened. I love this gun and it made me sick to see this.
