I am recalling that the 7 1/2" guns were started after most of the issues had been identified. I am happy for you. I have 4 5/8 and 5.5, both with serious issues costing a bunch of gunsmith money, now fixed but no longer stock guns.I own a Single Seven with the 7-1/2'' barrel. Mine has been flawless. Loads and ejects perfectly. Fit and finish is real good, especially at this price point. I can't match the grouping stats that the OP is getting, but the more I shoot the better I get. I shoot mostly .32 S&W Long and .32 H&R Magnum. The .327 Fed Mags are pretty stout. Of course buying any new revolver these days is a crapshoot. However I have nothing but good things to say about Ruger's customer service. If a problem pops up they will take care of it.
