    Problem with my RAPC. Slide fails to lock open on the last round when using the 12 round magazine. It will generally hold open if using the 17 round magazine. New problem, it has been working fine. I'm guessing the mag spring has weakened. There is a marked difference in the position of the slide catch depending on which empty magazine is inserted.

    No mag / compact mag / standard mag.

    My .45 C did that once when it was new. It's never done it since.

    Wonder if ruger would send you a new mag if you asked? Overall how do you like your new ruger?

    Call Ruger they'll send a prepaid label, and if the Mag is the problem they'll replace it and or fix what is wrong. About a week turnaround back to you is average.

    Ruger CS is second to none.
