I might be interested in your bulky rubber grip, in the event you are selling that once you find suitable wood replacement grips...I thought so. Grease will be coming out this weekend. Anyone know where i can get wood handgrips for one of these? Has the bulky rubber one, which is ok if you have giant hands like the guy i got it from
Mike, you can edit for only a short period of time on this board.Well, don't know how to "edit " (dont see it offered) so I'll just add that the "frame packing" in conjunction with an "action shield" keeps the action pretty much pristine!! Of the competition guns sent to me for "checking" after a years competition and winning a championship, those with an action shield were excellent with minimal fouling! ( Bunk, I think yours was an early one for the "packing " but no action shield at that time).
Gun oil on all bearing surfaces except the ratchet star , flat spring contacts and arbors. These need grease. Many times what is thought of as grease in dirty guns is actually congealed oil and fouling.Finally got back to my Ruger. Got it stripped down and found it was full of grease. Is this the recommended lube and what type would be best? Or do i need to clean this black and brown crud out and stick with oil?
