    Well since they have admitted they can't get the parts, they are going to replace it with the identical model.

    Don't sell it if you can't service it.

    I guess it's just me, but I'd just loaded the 9mm cylinder with .357s and vice versa and lived happy. But, I was never a perfectionist so long as it worked right. The cylinders on my Ruger convertible aren't even marked. I can just look in a chamber and tell by the depth of the chamber which caliber it is. I'm talented that way. I guess I could mark 'em myself if I weren't lazy.

    Well yea but now in all fairness!
    Parts Boats from Thailand don't have to navigate their way down the Amazon and across the many rapids and of course they don't have to chance the danger of the pirranaha either!

    yea I guess we all have our ideas, but to me that's kind of like putting in a electrical outlet that looks like a standard 110 volt but wiring it up as a 220 outlet.
    you may know it but the next person likely will not!
    so its kind of a dangerous thing to do in my opinion.
    and I do believe that federal import requirements call for a weapon to be marked appropriately with the caliber, remember not to long ago when a bunch of Spectrums I think it was escaped the factory without caliber markings an they had to be recalled?

    I guess I'm the only one who don't care what something is marked if'n I can tell which one it is by looking?
