I could have purchased a Paclite and saved $100. I bought the Maddmacs upper for the options and the rear sights they use which are made by kensight.

When you say Southern Oregon does that mean Kfalls, Brookings or Lakeview area? Before you plasma that barrel I wouldn't mind playing with it.

Consider having Clarks Custom barrel your receiver. I know you are out $400 already but aside from buying a new or used pistol rebarreling is the only choice left. That and suing them before they go bankrupt.

Is there a reason why the breech face couldn't be machined back to eliminate unsupported area of the case?

I'm not at all familiar with what you have there, so just asking.

What about relining the barrel?

Does relining the barrel involve a new breech face? The barrel is extremely accurate as is.

Assuming its threaded in, it could be set back and the entire breech face redone. But it would likely leave a visible break in the paint.

A liner would only cover a portion of the ramp. How that would all blend back together is hard to guess.

Have you called your CC company? I would be disputing that charge like yesterday... They delivered a defective and unsafe product and are not standing behind it so I wouldn't show them any mercy. Get your money back of you still can. Also relining the barrel ain't cheap, why throw good money after bad.

Don't forget. This was a replacement barrel. I'm sure he still has the original that can be put back on and blast away. I sure wouldn't try to re-line the bad barrel with a good one on the shelve.

Which leads me to ask. I've seen it mentioned here on this forum, and have heard it in conversations at matches, that a Ruger Mk series pistol will take most if not all people up to Master classification with nothing more than a trigger job and maybe better grips. If true, why do people feel the need to change barrels? I'm not trying to insult the intelligence of the OP at all here. 

I would imagine that if a bone stock Ruger MkIV was placed in a Ransom Rest and tested at 50 yards with quality ammo, it would chew up the X-ring all day long. So why the aftermarket barrel? 

I picked up a Ruger MkII from a Pawn shop in Wisconsin that was being sold from an estate sale. It was tagged as still new, and very much appeared to be new. $250. Added a VQ trigger kit $110. Added used like new Rink grips $150. For $510 I have a pistol that shoots every bit as good as my $1000 Benelli.
