Hey Forum,

Obviously I will be calling Ruger about this, however I wanted to share something that happened to it today and during my first couple of outings with it.

At first I brushed it off as maybe not being broken in. But today it happened again. So off to Ruger it goes.

Anyone else have this problem?
I was firing Federal 115 grain & CCI Blazer brass 124 grain.

Put some snap caps in and rack the slide. Make sure that the extractor is not broken.

Is it possible that you are limp wristing?

Its possible I'm limp wristing it. I'm trying to get used to a small framed 9mm pistol...but I will try the snap cap test.

You can also go to your local gun range and see if the RSO will shoot your gun for you to try and trouble shoot it. Or perhaps see if a buddy of yours can shoot it for you and see if he has the same problem.

I'm going to Reeds after work, available for test firing! :D

If I had a little more notice I would have made sure to pack it in the car and join you. Wouldn't mind firing that M&P of yours.

Next time,
Cheers

Looks like the spent casing is getting cought on the next round to be chambered.

Ruger will probably take care of it, but I would try different mags/ammo before I sent it in.

if you were limp wristing the spent casing would be in a stove pipe position. looks like extractor.

Is the chamber free of hard fouling? With the slide locked back, a round should be able to slide right in and fall out freely. Sometimes a hard bit of carbon can hang up a round, especially when the casing is warm and slightly expanded from pressure and heat.
