Warninglubrication

Firing a revolver with oil, grease, or any other material even partially obstructing the bore may result in damage to the revolver and serious injury to the shooter and those nearby.

l)o not spray or apply lubricants directly on ammunition. If the powder charge of a cartridge is affected by the lubricant, it may not be ignited, but the energy from the primer may be sufficient to push the bullet into the bore where it may become lodged. Firing a subsequent bullet onto the obstructed bore may damage the revolver and cause serious injury or death to the shooter and those nearby. Use lubricants properly. You are responsible for the proper care and maintenance of your firearms.

IMPROPER LUBRICATION DESTROYS GUNS

CARE OF STAINLESS STEEL REVOLVERS

Firearms made of stainless steel are relatively more resistant to corrosion than blued steel firearms. However, you should still inspect it frequently and clean, lubricate and apply an appropriate rust preventative as required.

Sometimes surface discoloration may be noted, particularly in the grip area of stainless steel handguns, resulting from perspiration. Contact with some types of holsters can also cause stains or rusting. Rusting may also occur as a result of the handgun being exposed to moisture, humidity, salt air or chemicals.

Minor discoloration can usually be removed by rubbing the stained area with an abrasive ink eraser, crocus cloth, or a "metal polishing" compound. When using any of these abrasives, proceed with care and use light pressure to achieve a blending of'color' with those areas that are not discolored.

Exposed surfaces on the firearm should be cleaned and wiped dry after use or after exposure to adverse conditions. If the firearm is to be stored, coat it with a light film of oil or preservative. Where the firearm is in continuing use, and the presence of oil or grease would be objectionable, then the external surfaces can be coated (after cleaning and drying) with a paste wax formulated for use on metals. Apply the wax sparingly, allow time for it to dry hard, then buff lightly with a soft cloth. When applying the wax take care that it does not get into the mechanism or on the functioning parts such as the cylinder latch, trigger or cylinder locking notches. A properly applied hard wax coating will not interfere with comfortable gun handling and it will provide a measure of protection against the formation of rust.

CARE OF "COLOR CASE FINISHED FRAMES"

(VAQUERO & BISLEY-VAQUERO MODELS ONLY)

The special finish process used to simulate the old-time "color case hardened" frames of antique revolvers is quite durable, but not as wear-resistant as a conventional blued steel finish. 1)0 NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS ON ANY "COLOR CASE FINISHED" FRAMES. Note that the frames are "through hardened" just like other Ruger* revolvers. This finish is provided for those who prefer its mottled "old west" appearance.

ATTACHING RUGER SCOPE RINGS

(HUNTER MODEL ONLY)

On the underside of each mounting ring assembly there is a locating *tab." By reference to this "tab," the mounting ring can be assembled to the scope so that the tab will fit correctly into the recess on the top of the barrel.

Disassemble one ring and reassemble over the scope body between the turret and the eyepiece so that the clamp nut (D-73) is positioned to the left of the scope.

Install the four top screws. Do not tighten.

Disassemble the other ring and install it on the forward section of the scope tube with the clamp nut positioned to the left of the scope. Install the four top screws. Again, do not tighten.

Assemble the rings to the barrel with the locating "tabs" engaging the recesses in the top surface of the barrel. Tighten the clamp nuts so that the rings are locked to the semi-circular cuts on the sides of the barrel. Rotate the scope until crosshairs are aligned properly, and slide scope to desired eye relief.

Then tighten the eight top screws a bit at a time to grip the scope body. Sight in according to the direction with your scope.

SIGHTS

(ADJUSTABLE SIGHT MODELS ONLY)

ADJUSTMENT - Each click of the sight adjustment screw (either windage or elevation) will move the point of impact of the bullet approximately 3/4" at a range of 25 yards. The height of the front sight has been set to take advantage of the elevation adjustment in the rear sight, considering the various ranges at which the gun is most likely to be used. Barrel length and load used affects trajectory. Therefore the shooter should determine sight settings by firing trials.

To move the point of impact to the rinht

To point of impact: turn screw counterclockwise.

To lower point of impact: turn screw clockwise.

SUGGESTED SIGHT PICTURE

Top of front sight even with top of rear sight blade. Front sight centered in notch of rear sight blade. Target bullseye centered on top of front sight.

To move the point of impact to the rinht

FIXED SIGHTS

(VAQUERO & FIXED SIGHT MODELS ONLY)

INTERCHANGEABLE SIGHTS
