Things happen. Yet to find any perfect human (plenty that see themselves as such, but none have proven it). Like a LOT at Ruger who's using lean production, not everything is on a constant manufacturing run all the time. When the next run comes along, they'll be made.
Curious though...did you not check this before doing the 4473?

yes I did check gun and did not accept shipped it back to ruger through my dealer
Gotcha! When you said you bought it, I wondered. More and more lately I read ppl saying they got a brand new _____ and then later on discover something obvious that's wrong or just not quite right. Makes ya wonder if ppl even bother looking before hey buy now.

Good thing you checked the gun closely before accepting it. I learned the hard way on that once and now I thoroughly check guns before accepting them. New or used both get treated the same way.

Looking good. How long is this barrel?
Let us know how it performs at the range. IE: Is it like holding a hand cannon?

montado has a 3.75 inch barrel. Range report, shoots 1 inch to the left of center, elevation is good. slicked the action, tried a wollf sring kit the hammer spring was to light the montado has a different hammer than the vaquero,wollf hammer spring doesn't work. handles hot 357 mags really good.
