Lost my pistol in the river during a raft trip. Found it a month later when the water level dropped. Gun has been reblued but the barrel is toast. What can be done to repair it?
What about suppressing it?
Please HELP!!
Thanks

Either you can send it back to Ruger to be rebarreled, Or find a smith that will rebarrel it for you. Removing the barrel from the action is a PITA! And should only be done by a knowledgeable smith.

You could check with a gunsmith about having a barrel liner installed... there are always options.

send it to Clark custom guns, they will replace the barrel and match tune that gun, turn it into a tack driver.

how bad is the bore? id take some abrasive cleaner, maybe flitz or JB bore or a lead removing cloth or stainless steel brush and try to remove all the rust, then Shoot the hell out of it. might be surprised.

The rifling is all but gone. Tried scrubbing the hell out of it and you still can't hit a 4'by 4' at 100yds. Does Clark have a site?
Thanks

4' X 4' At a 100 yds?! Man, your standards are pretty high for a .22 lr pistol! 50 yds is the max for my MKII HB gov. I can hardly hit 4' x 4' at 100 yds with my .22lr RIFLE!

You do understand that 4' means 4 Feet don't you?

4" means 4 inches.

I've had a Government competition model with a 2x scope on top for about two years now, and if I do my part, it will consistently keep all the little holes within 2 inches of each other, providing I feed it the ammo it likes, Remington subsonics.

I need to clarify... 2 inches at 50 yards.

Thanks for the Clark site. I will give them a call tomorrow.

Ah yes, just like the great Stonehenge fiasco.



LOL. "I don't think the midgets should be able to trod upon it!"
