I recently bought a new Ruger Alaskan. Later I looked at it and noticed a small dent by one of the cylinder
slots. I don't know the correct wording for the specific cylinder parts. So it's a little hard to describe.
It looks like the cylinder was machined a little too far while creating a ramp next to a cylinder slot which
keeps it from revolving. I am guessing that the dent was created while creating one of the ramps. Gouging into the edge of the slot next to the ramp. I can feel an edge where the metal was pushed up slightly on the surface of the cylinder.
I have never seen this with any of my other revolvers. I was wondering if anyone else has seen anything
like this before on a Ruger or any other brand revolvers?
My main concern is that the dent will affect the value in some way.
It's not a big issue. But I did pay a lot for the gun. So I would rather that it didn't have the flaw.
