Own a Ruger SR9C or SR40C?
I'm a Ruger fan. Had several in .22 and a couple in 9mm. The SR9C came out and it just plain looked great. Trigger pull was fantastic. Other compact 9's felt like you were bending metal to pull the trigger. My wife hated two I brought home, Glock and Tauras. She loved the SR9c.
Started having light strikes on the primer. A thorough cleaning seemed to make it worse. Changed ammo. Same results. These light strike rounds fired in my Beretta every time. Dealer said it was the ammo. Had the range owner fire it. Only 6 of 10 rounds fired. Took it back to dealer and demanded a new one.
Problem solve~ for a year. It then started double tapping, then light strikes on the primer again. Here's how I discovered the culprit and the cure.
The recoil assembly from Ruger are faulty. Part plastic, part steel. They get very sloppy and you'll see it begin to protrude at the muzzle. Mine was protruding 1/8" or more. I could push it back in with no effort. Check yours. A simple glance will be obvious.
After reading several forums, I found out about Galloway Precision. They make a replacement recoil assembly for SR9C and SR40C. I ordered one - $40.00 plus shipping - received it in three days and it cured all my issues. It's all metal and utilizes thicker metal and is visually a better quality assembly. The come in different weights, I got the 16lb. Problem solved. Ruger needs to buy these from Galloway. They don't seem able, or willing to make them correctly. Galloway makes enough of these to make it a profitable line for them. Should tell Ruger something. It tell me a lot.
