    Price was kinda high, probably paid MSRP. As far as getting the slide off, are you pushing the ejector down and out of the way?

    Yeah, the price was high. I paid $420 OTD for my SR9c stainless 2 years ago.

    You would be very hard pressed to find those kind of deals in today's market.

    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

    I knew that so I temporarily stop purchasing guns now and wait for the prices to go down to normal.

    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

    If your happy with it then you did alright with todays market. Seems like the price of anything gun related is going up. I payed $399.00 for mine brand new less than a year ago.
