It is a shame that companies have to compromise quality to sell a gun, but I dont think this is Rugers fault. We live is a society that wants something for nothing now, and everyone is entitled. Heck if you want someone to come to an event tell them they will get free food or something for free and they will flock there. True craftsman are few and far between, and most children these days are not brought up to appreciate it. I just traded a custom rifle to a friend (thank God for him), because I posted it online and people did not want to pay hundreds less than what the parts were work much less the fine craftsmanship it took to build it. Dont blame RUger blame lowsy consumers, high steel prices (if you can get it), and workers that think they deserve the world.
