Ruger Transfer Bar

Recommended Posts

Where can I find a transfer bar for a new model Vaquero? One broken in my 4 month old SASS Vaquero today and I would like to be able to make the shoot this coming weekend. Thanks

Ruger is very good a customer support.  If you call them on Monday they may send you one free.

This coming weekend, (tomorrow)??  Or, are you talking about the next weekend?

 

If tomorrow, being it's Friday night,  no one can you one by tomorrow... If you're talking about next weekend, then Ruger will drop one in the mail to you.

Should there be a concern about why it broke?

Transfer bars are Ruger's only real weak point. Breaking is not unusual.

Because the transfer bar is not fitting the action correctly.

 

The transfer bar can have any of the following problems. 

1. It is too thick

2. It is too long

3. It is not parallel with the frame and is bending when the hammer strikes it.

 

Take way to long to explain in words how to determine which is the problem and how to correct.

The point being that he may need more than a new part.

Check for "hammer pinch".  This is where the hammer in rest position is a little to tight against the transfer bar.

 

Now, if I can remember the test. . .

Have gun empty.  Then cock the gun and pull the trigger and continue to hold the trigger back. 

Now slowly release the trigger.  The transfer bar should be free to drop down.

If the hammer is pressing on the transfer bar, it increases the likelihood of breaking the transfer bar.

 

The fix.  Some would thin the transfer bar since it is the cheaper part, but it will weaken it.

Most will slightly reface the hammer area where it touches the transfer bar - thus freeing up the action as it should.  To be clear, this in NOT where the hammer hits the frame.  It is that second notch down that will be touching the transfer bar.

 

Of course you don't want to remove any more than is needed.

 

For a better description, look at Driftwood Johnson's post, see #12.
