I have two measurements:
13.34mm
13.00mm
about 0.013" difference; nearly a 1/64"

I'll go with the larger and include a barrel plug.
5 Minute Epoxy should "forgive" any variations.

I threaded the inside of the barrel to 10mm and left a threaded stub on the muzzle so my airsoft will still shoot.

Inara's pistol finally came home. 18 months after I bought it in LA, I went to the armourer who deactivated it for me, and collected it yesterday..... complete with proofhouse deactivation certificate.

They did a great job, the action still functions correctly and there is no visible difference from when it was a live-firing piece. I'm pleased.

It's just in time too. Monday we shoot many of the props for the FFOC book 3.

This means Inara's pistol will make it into the book. Phew.

I'll post pics and a description on the Archive site as soon as I get the time.

Excellent news, Badger. :)
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

I'm glad to hear that it arrived safely and that it survived the deactivation!
Can't wait to see more pictures! 8-)

Thanks guys.

It was a push to get it through for the photoshoot, but well worth it.
I like this prop and think it well worthy of inclusion in the book.

The Mk2 Ruger is surprisingly well built for the price, I think they retail for a couple of hundred Dollars.

It feels really nicely balanced in the hand.
