View Full Version : SR9C magazine disconect

Has anyone removed their mag disconnect yet? If so did you notice any difference ? People are saying that there has been light primer strikes ,and by removing the disconnect it helps solve the issue! I have 4 mags for my SR9C ,and one of them was causing light primer strikes ,no round in that mag would fire . I looked over my mags and noticed the one with the issue was rounded more on the rear corner where the mag would ride the disconnect ,so i removed it . have not shot it yet was wondering if anyone has had this or heard of this problem.

I haven't experienced this with any of our SR9 or SR9c guns. It sounds more like a magazine-out-of-spec issue to me. I'd be interested to know if removing the disco "fixes" the problem, though.

First if you haven't I suggest you take out your striker and thoroughly clean it and the channel. Check all the parts while you have it apart. Unfortunately some of the SR9c's have had a weak striker spring if taking out your mag disconnect out and a thorough cleaning doesn't work call Ruger and talk to them they will fix it, just don't forget to put your mag disconnect back in.

First thing I did to my SR9 before I even shot it was pull that stupid magazine disconnect. If you dry fire with the mag out it will kill your firing pin very quickly. Pull it out, takes 3 seconds, then dry fire away. Mag or no mag. Your trigger will also be smoother. As for the light primer strikes, that's not a related problem. Probably due to a dirty striker channel. SR9's don't like ANY lube in there. Keep it clean and dry as possible. I switched to a Ghost 3.5, polished the internals, and cut two coils off my striker spring. My trigger was super lite, crisp, no creep, and I still had hard primer strikes. I sold that gun, and I wish I didn't now.

Thanks guys ! I forgot to mention that the mag that had an issue also caused the trigger to feel a little different than the other 3 mags i have.Now with the mag disconnect removed the trigger feels the same with all 4 mags .I think ill go to the range tomorrow and try it out again.

Taking the mag disconnect out solved the problem! now all the mags work great ,and the trigger has improved .

How easy is it to remove the mag disconnect?

Takes about 5 minutes.

The youtube video showing how to do it takes about three times longer.
