Has anyone here had any dealings with Sturm Ruger CS after a gun is well out of warranty and parts are discontinued? Up front they made it clear that there would be a $30 charge for return shipping plus parts, along with a cleaning, and labor charge if it could be repaired or not.  I received a return shipping notice from the carrier but have not heard a word from Ruger. I would have expected some notification even if the needed parts were no longer available. Is this a sign to be happy or is it to early? for that?

 Ruger has taken excellent care of us on several occasions when one of their firearms needed repair.

UPDATE!   Three Chears for Strum Ruger CS!
Today the Red Label returned. By the long list of parts used, the safety and firing mechanism was replaced and upgraded. It was test fired and checked for full function. This came back at no charge. Unbelievable service on a gun manufactured in 1985.

I think the Ruger Hawkeye will be my next bolt gun in 7mm Winkle. Big Grin 

Good deal.

Good deal!  I own several Ruger firearms, and have never had a problem, but it's good to know that they stand behind their products.

3 years ago i purchased a Ruger mini 14 and the first time i took it out i had extractor issues. I called ruger, they emailed me a shipping label and i sent it off. It took about 2 months turn around to get it back but they replaced the parts with no charge to me. I also purchased a 10/22 for my wife for Christmas this past year and when i took it out to sight it in, the trigger quit working after 4 shots. I returned with the rifle to the sporting goods store where i purchased it and they sent it out to Ruger about 2 weeks ago. I don't know if i have a black cloud with Ruger lately but i never had an issue with my old 10/22 or Old Vaquero nor has my family had issues with any of their Rugers(m77s mini 14s and 10/22s). But they have taken care of me without asking for anything in return. Although it does suck that my recent purchases from them have had to be sent back I'm glad to see they stand behind their products and are taking care of me. With that alone they will continue to have my service. If only they they(and other manufacturers) would quit replacing metal parts for plastic....

That is excellent... certainly a galaxy better than CZ...

Ruger has always had a very good CS reputation. I've never had to use their CS for gun repairs. However, when I was in college, I had to do a research paper on a manufacturing technology, and I decided to do mine on the investment casting process. Given that Sturm Ruger is one of, if not the foremost practitioner of the state of the art in investment casting, I wrote to them to see if they could help me with some technical materials. I wasn't expecting much, but they sent me a huge amount of very detailed tech literature, along with tons of photos of the process from start to finish as used in their Prescott, AZ facility. They also threw in some Ruger patches and decals. I was totally blown away by how much they went above and beyond to help me!

Incidentally, you would be very surprised by how many products Ruger actually makes that you never knew they made... golf club heads, small engine blocks, aircraft components, etc. Firearms is only a part of their business; half their production is in commercial casting of a wide variety of parts for other manufacturers.
