It appears to me that the cosmetics and reliability of our currently produced Rangers is improving to where it is now virtually on a par with that of our other guns. My impressions are based on several different inputs: primarily reports from the factory, both qualitative as well as quantitative, but also to include reactions from our end customers, which I receive directly as well as anecdotally from our user community (Message Board). There is a whole slew of reasons for this improvement: engineering and assembly tweaks, better vendor performance as well as a better understanding of this gun and its idiosyncrasies by the factory technicians – these all contribute to a better product.
I’m also pleased to report that we’ve made improvements to our Hoglegs, Earls, Sidewinders, Pugs, etc. etc. In fact, it’s our goal to make every gun we manufacture better than the ones we manufactured the day before. Sometimes those “improvements” are more substantial than others (e.g. MM and BW cylinder pins), but most are incremental and almost indiscernible. Notwithstanding, our goal always remains the same – do better and make a better product. That’s our mission.
As always, I promise a personal response to a personal inquiry to either Sandy@NorthAmericanArms.com or 215-385-2315.
