I nudged the pin over a bit. It was still jamming. The guy at the range lubed it w oil and bam! Fire beautifully through 50 rounds! He said it was extremely dry. I'm going to clean it tonight for the first time and make sure I keep it lubed up! I'm so happy I dnt have to send it to Ruger for repairs.

Just be careful, dirty ammo with gunk it up and cause issues. Use very light lube!

Ok man thanks for the heads up. There's a lot more to shooting than I thought.

Some guns prefer it dry, some not, but a general rule with lube is a little goes a long way.

I used to own the same gun. Am I the only one who thinks the gun looks bad ass. Other people say it is blocking and ugly. I loves mine. I got rid of it because I was having problems reaching the decocker with only my thumb

I think your tractor's sexy! (Substitute gun for operative noun.)

Was that just a little bit creepy to anyone else? I'm leaving it! Lol

Seriously though, she's a beaut man! Serious scraper I'd say!

Another option is to use a dry lube. Remington makes a good one.
