Ruger has agreed to re-blue my slide due to salt corrosion from my sweat (I know now to keep the firearm oiled especially when simply carrying it during hot/humid days).
They suggested that the slide only be shipped priority mail or UPS Ground to
Attn: Customer Service
200 Ruger Road
Prescott, AZ 86301.
My question to you all, is what is the best way to package the slide?
Small priority flat rate box--free from USPS. Wrap the snot out of it with bubble wrap. It will be good to go. Add insurance for the value of a new slide if it cost more than $50. $50 insurance is free on a small priority flat rate box. Just in case Mr Murphy rears his head. Identification and contact info inside.
You can mail in your mail box. If you go to the post office don't tell them it is a gun part. Many don't have a clue on their own rules. You mention a gun part they are likely going to be told you can't do it. That is true for guns unless you have an FFL.
To avoid any USPS problems use UPS.
Just get a mailing tube from the post office or from a UPS store. The tube will be sufficient to mail the slid back to Ruger.
Welcome to the forum devoegw! Too bad there isn't something else wrong with the weapon, you could send it back on their nickel and have one of their gunsmiths work it over. Den
Thanks for the welcome - I'll post a message in the New Member Introduction forum as well!
