My Blackhawk and 10/22 have had no problems though. I think the reason you hear "enough" stories as apposed to another manufacturer is because you are on a Ruger forum. That being said, if you were to encounter a problem, Ruger's customer support is amazing from what I hear.I think the Colt Python is the best revolver ever made. I'm hearing enough stories about QC issues due to Ruger's increased production that I wouldn't be in a rush to buy a new Ruger. That said, my older 10/22s are just great.
