Problem with Ruger Bisley
I recently acquired a Ruger Blackhawk Bisley .45 Colt that has a problem I've never seen on a Ruger single action before. The base pin slides forward under recoil, so the hammer can't be cocked without reaching forward and pushing it back in. I have other Ruger single actions in .45, .44 and .357 and this has never happened. This isn't with hot loads, just standard pressure .45 Colt. A 250gr cast lead FP bullet over 7 grains HP-38.
Has anyone here ever had this problem before? What might be the cause? I do intend to call Ruger next week, it's now the weekend and I'm sure there customer service is closed.
