Re: correcting Ruger End Shake
The Power bushing goes in the front end. If you try to space out the back of the cylinder, you can have excessive headspace and timing issues. It has to go in the front. And as for cylinder gap, I really don't believe that a extra thousants or two will make much difference in preformance. I once owned a Ruger that had .011 clearance between the barrel and cylinder (.004 or .005 is more typical). I didn't like the looks of it, but it shot right with my other Rugers for accuracy and velocity. Go figure. 44 Man

I hear people say, a loving God would not send anyone to **** and I agree; you make that choice yourself!
