Without going into the gory details, I managed to drill a hole for sling swivels in the wrong place on my 10/22 Takedown. Then while experimenting with some other options I managed to drill a second hole in a wrong place. So I called Ruger Customer Service and at first the guy said he couldn't sell me a replacement forend as it wasn't listed. Then he took my number and said he'd get back to me. Thirty minutes later he called back and asked for my address and he would send a replacement right out. I asked how much and he said, "No charge." I thanked him and told him that's why I own over a dozen Ruger firearms. They take care of their customers.
