Now, the last thing any reasonable person should do is ask for anything resembling legal advice on the internet and much less on a forum - BUT (always a but in there), I have a Ruger P85 that I've put quite a few hundred rounds through and come to learn it has been recalled some years ago due to what appears to be an isolated incident where a firing pin fractured in a particular pattern and the "decocking" action of the safety engagement resulted in a negligent discharge of the firearm. Now to the question. Ruger told me that they would send a box for return, pay postage, perform the warranty work for free, and ship my pistol back. No harm no foul in my book. Discussing the situation with a friend and had them tell me that he had one sell awhile ago and it was not sent in for the warranty work and for some reason that was more desirable than those with the "MKII" stamp on them. Any rationality to that? I am of the opinion that (aside from the personal morals issue involved) it would be a crazy liability to sell someone a firearm knowing the work had not been done.
