Default SR9 issue

OK so after 20 months with my SR9 I finally had a serious issue today. Whilst blowing up a frozen Pumkin that was on my porch since 10/31, I had an excessive series of FTF's today. Guns are cleaned before and after every shoot, and complete takedowns at least once per month. With only a few rds. At a time loaded in Mag., it would jam on the 2nd or 3rd rd. Cleared the chamber and switched mags( I have 5 for the SR and 7 now for the LC) loaded 1 into mag and then chamber for wife to try. Three times in a row gun failed to fire, took it from her, figuring she was having issue with the trigger, tried it myself, still no BANG,.
Brought it home and broke it down again, found nothing obstructing mag well or chamber/Feed Ramp area....
Any thoughts?

What type of ammo are you running? I have only had one ftf and as it turns out we could get that round to fire in anything... Glock... SIG... nothing..

The Rugers seem to be picky IMO to certain ammo brands, what brand of ammo are you using?

I at this point have a couple thousand rounds through mine from herter's, tulammo, winchester, Remington, federal, fiocchi, and even a box of really old stuff that was old enough you could barely read hornady on the lid. Steel case, brass case... it has run it all...

Sorry i was sick for a day and a half(146 unread in forums and about 8 PM's!!) Ammo: Mostly Black Hills 115Gr.Rn's, but also some CCI/Blazer, also 115Gr. RN's and maybe about 10 SD rounds(5 Fiocchi Monoblock 92Gr. Expansion HP's and 5 Golden Sabers. I could have possibly been 'the Cold" but it was in the High 50's with a slight breeze....about 80 rds. total. No issues the 1st 50+....and no issues with the LC9(about 50 rds. from the LC) What Didn't FTF or FTE you Ask? the 22's, except for one bad rd.(and thats from the junky Thunderbolts!) Yeah,..No issues with mine until that day...I think i'm gonna let the Smith at the range look at it the next time we go in! I have had mine since April '12, with around 1500 thru mine...

No worries! Thanks. I ordered some more tools today, which I should get by 1/1, including the Ruger all in one gun tool by real avid, from the Ruger site. I'm sure that and the set of punches I ordered (From Natchez) will make it easier to take the SR down. I suspect at this point that the trigger gut " Gunked up." Same thing happened to my LC about 9 or 10 months ago, and I used a flat punch to take down the lower frame in order to "Wipe Down" the trigger and trigger assembly. Worked fine after that and has for the last 750-800 rounds...
