    Interesting read, thanks AB. 92000! Holy crap! I once asked on another forum what the life expectancy of a certain Ruger pistol was and the reply was “you’ll die before you wear it out”. I’m a somewhat Ruger fan.

    Sorry about my senior moment.... "Redhawk" it is, and duly edited.

    Good article. I worked in manufacturing, engineering, and metallurgy in my career. They solved a problem Marlin never could when they promised a lever action in .480 Ruger. I had a Marlin on preorder but it was cancelled.
