    What about searching for a new barrel? Any GOOD smith could do the work. Maybe contact Gallagher or Clements for a start.

    Does not look as though crown is damaged, I would leave it. The guns got caricature.

    If it is unconverted I would send it back to Ruger and have them re-barrel it. I would even do that if it was not converted and then put the gun back to stock when they send the parts back.

    Flat- gate SS
    I don't want a new barrel. I would be interested in used barrel but can't find
    one. Don't have a smith in these parts, would like to get name of one. I have
    another SS I bought new in early 60s, other than worn finish it's 100% mech. ImageUploadedByRuger Forum1427055729.604559.jpg
