Ruger ICORE survey


Recommended Posts

Some might be surprised how light you can run a Ruger.  I had a Super Redhawk running at 6# DA with Federal primers for a while.  The biggest weakness in their design is the cylinder release.  I sincerely hope they take these surveys and act on them.  Competition amongst manufacturers should be good for all of us.

I've never shot a Ruger on the clock, but the cylinder release has never bothered me. I reload strong hand and the same motion I use on a Smith seems to mash the Ruger release just fine. I could see it being a reach if you don't change hands when you reload.

I used to reload strong hand but eventually switched to WHO.  On the Ruger I have an odd way of opening the cylinder but it works for me.  I use the weak hand to press the release and my strong hand pointer finger to push the cylinder out.  If all goes well, it's plenty fast.

Just read this older thread. Did the survey or the new team have a say in the new 8rd gp revolver.
I think i will wait and here how the run as another 8rd revolver was in my plans.
I assume so, but my comments were that anything more than a 7 lb double action pull was a deal breaker.

Things are indestructible though, you probably wouldn't need to replace one anytime soon though.
