I just bought a brand new Ruger P95 semi pistol. I love it! I took it the range put 50 rounds of Winchester White Box full metal through no problems. Then I bought some magtech rounds and it starts jamming up. I told the guy at the counter thinking it may have been the ammo. He shot 40 rounds w no problem. The issue is I wasn't cocking the slide all the way back n releasing. The slide has to be released so that the force places the bullet in place correctly. I was riding the slide back down with my hand. Now no jamming!!!! Hope that helps with anyone having similar issues.

Yeah, I never ride slide down. I use slide release and let it flu one handed.

Also, your thumb ring looks like one of those bread slice spacers.

To me, it depends on whether the metal piece is called a "slide release" or "slide stop".

If called a "slide stop", then I do not use it as a "slide release", I "slingshot" the slide forward.

I wouldn't say that the ring is awesome but the gun definitely is. Personal thing though.

I assume you mean you pull back on slide, push down slide stop and let it go all in one quick motion, acting as a sort of slingshot move?

Lol! Yes the proper method is the the sling shot method. If not the bullets stovepipe and jam up.

I used to have the P95 with the same issues-in mine it was the extractor claw,if it does it again you might need to pull it out and give it a tweak or bend so it bends inward just a millimeter or two more,I did this and it was fixed,and stayed fixed,I called Ruger and told them what I did and the gunsmith there told me that's exactly what he would have done too.

Do I have to rove it or can I bend it a nudge while still in the gun?
