    Not bad. 3” away?

    What have you done to your poor Ruger? I have 100 year old guns that look better than that.

    As I read this, I was cleaning up my old Ruger 10/22. And my receiver is looking similar. My receiver is literally flaking the finish off. It appears it is just a type of black paint on the metal. I have to be real careful wiping it down with a soft patch even. Per Ruger search of #'s, it shipped from their plant in 1990. I think I bought it in 1990 also.

    It was about 5 years or so old when the paint began to come loose in spots. Very small at first, but it still keeps losing more. In fact, this little carbine is basically as new except for the paint. Doubt I even have 250 rounds through it.
    In the early 1970's I bought a new Ruger Mark that began losing some finish in spots. Poor application of bluing I think on it.

    Easy fix spray paint it and bake it.
     
  8. IIRC @84minieldo had a number of pistols that were recovered from a fire and or a flood or something. The Ruger may be one of them.

    Wish he’d reply. I really do want to know how far away he was.

    This is how the older models look after 5 or 6 decades.

    Right the fudge on it 3 inches is probably about right..test run thing..if u gotta ruster or cruster that won’t fully seat a bullet that shot shell is a good little chamber/barrel cleaner

    I think I’d strip that pistol down and use some fake blue on it. Or just paint it. The old Marks are good looking pistols.:thumbsup:
