    I traded for a Yugo SKS still in the cosmoline. Lucky I took the bolt out - the firing pin was stuck in the forward position. I grabbed the back of it with players and could not budge it. Soaked the bolt in K-1 and eventually it loosened up. IF I had fired it I would have probably had a slam fire on my hands.

    Roy Weatherby wanted to see just how strong his 9 lug Mark V action was. They got together with Norma engineers for the test. They put a bullet in the chamber of the rifle (I believe it was a .300WbyMag.) and a live round behind it and fired the rifle. The engineers could not see any damage to the action and estimate it held 250,000 psi. I saw this article in the Norma web site. P.S. Weatherby's normally operate around 65,000 psi .

    I think they have to test fire in order to put on a proof mark. I always heard it was X2 the normal pressure load.

    No lie GI. I emailed Ruger and they wanted me to send the gun back. But didn’t offer a new one so I declined.

    That's hard to believe Ruger would let that pass inspection??

    I was thinking 'proof tested', not fired for identification.

    My S&W 29 came with a test target. I wonder if they are proof tested. It used to be we 'thought' firearms were fired at X2 pressures.

    Every pistol I've bought new has had a casing included. The upper for the most recent AR I assembled came with three casings.
