I think you did good. Better prices out there but you didn't get scalped.
I watched a video similar to the one posted and practiced taking down my SR40 (same procedure) a couple of times and it is very easy once you see the sequence. Taking out the striker pin for cleaning etc. can be a bit tricky but I would learn how to do it if you can. Those Rugers tend to come from the factory a tad over-lubed/greased, can make them gunk magnets pretty quick
Thanks for all the info I took it to a gun smith and he said the guid rod got bent and replaced field strips flawlessly now. Just need to find ammo so I can shoot it thanks again to all who posted to help with my problem
I picked up my sr9c and my sr40c for a little under 500 otd as for the slide problem maybe it's just gettin caught up on the cam block my slides gets caught up on mine sometime Maybe try oiling it up before you take it down sometimes dirt and stuff can get on it through the slide
