There’s something Fishy about this video, which shows how Ruger assembles their righteous GP100 revolver. I’ll leave it to you to figure it out. Meanwhile, one of the main reasons we like Ruger’s more expensive products (as well as FNH-USA’s not-so-terribly-pricey-anymore pistols): the people who make them take pride in what they do. When it comes to manufacturing quality guns, there’s no substitute for employing well-trained, well-paid, highly-motivated, closely-supervised factory workers. At the same time . . .
you want a firearm from a company that operates on one simple principle: if a gun doesn’t meet spec, if it doesn’t function exactly as it should, it doesn’t go down the line, or out the door. As for companies that don’t, well, the R51 died for that sin. So now you know.
