Thx for adding this area to post gunsmithing issues!

RetiredSb you probably just cursed me LOL

If anyone has past or present issues we can list them so others can reference this forum for help. I think it will be interesting to read anywhoo. (whether it involves thingys or not)

and since I had issues with my Charger & this was the solution....

Several months ago I had Sightnguy install a few upgrades on my Ruger Charger.We bought a tune up kit that included a Sure Strike firing pin and an Exact Edge extractor. I shoot alot of different brands of ammo, and have encountered light strikes and some stove pipes. These parts have eliminated those issues.

Another upgrade was an auto bolt release, which was the best upgrade you can do for a Charger. The new release saves your finger from getting sore from the sharp factory release thingy. With the new release, you just pull the bolt back and let go.

We also dropped in a polyurethane bolt stop/recoil buffer.

These upgrades made the Charger a reliable, smoother shooting pistol

Sightngrl,
My brother has a Charger that he doesn't shoot enough to determine it's shortcomings.
Can you briefly go over the list of parts improvements that you would recommend should I gain possession?
Thanks,
Jimmy

Sorry I just saw this request. Let me get back to you later today with the website for the previously mentioned replacement parts.

Look at Volquartsen for great quality upgrade parts.

I've put a lot of rounds down my Charger, so I'm sure that had something to do with my issues. The Charger was used when I bought it and didn't have light strikes then.

The parts I replaced are listed in my first post.
