Here's a few questions for Ed for obvious reasons.
Several months ago I fell into a great deal, at least I thought it so. Passing by a table hosted by a familiar face. Etc, etc, I thought I saw a sweet little S & W 32 S&W L, 4". For $200.? NO!! It was so beautiful I was baffeled. At closer inspection I found it was a Ruby Extra. Well, even at my ancient vintage I cant resist a pretty face. She came home w/me. I recognized the brand but knew little of her reputation. Not long after, my health took a nose dive so I've only lately been able to access her details. Exterior flaws? Only one, a ding on the left corner of her bbl. rib. just fore of the frame. Her finish is 99+%. All screws show no evidence of "bubbering". However the springs are rugged and the adjustment screw at the butt heel appears to have been relieved .
Having a set of plug gauges. I found at the muzzle a .303" fit nicely. The chambers varried. A .309", a .310" and 4 .312"'s.
First, is the qualtiy of the Ruby Worth the expense of the adjustments needed?
Second, Are the working parts close enough to S&W design to rely on there schematics for maintenance.
The chambering is stamped .32 Long Ctg.
Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
Only in His name.
