On my SRH 44 mag, the bottom of the pawl is worn where it enters into the trigger. This surprises me, as I only have about 500 shots through it. The trigger is hard and the cylinder does not follow up sometimes.

So, the pawl needs replacement, and I don't know if the hole in the trigger where the pawl fits is worn. I compared the parts to those on my GP-100, and there is definitely wear. Much wear.

Does a pawl need to be fitted by a gunsmith? And should this go back to the factory to replace the pawl and see if the trigger needs repair, too? I am curious if there is anything else going on that would have caused such wear.

I haven't called Ruger, since they won't open again until Monday. Any advice?

Hi Iowegan,

I glanced at both pawls when I had them both apart yesterday, and I thought the SRH pawl was taller. Brownells lists different part #'s for them.

I'll tear them apart again and take a look. Probably won't do it until tomorrow eve.

Thanks for the help.
