Yes I have talked to ruger about it, The first time I just ordered all replacement parts for the clip holder I replaced every thing but the trigger guard and pivot pin. It worked fine for about 100 rounds and started doing the same thing again. I just talked to ruger today and they are sending another retainer spring, this will be the 3rd spring so ill give it a try and see what happens. I need to find some one that can wind me a heaver spring. I talked to Wolff and Timmy and the couldnt give me any advice. I really like the little gun for close up deer hunting so i wont give up on it.
farrell, It would seem to me your trigger guard assembly has "excessive" play in the area of the magazine latch plunger/spring assembly. More than likely a manufacturing flaw, thus the reason for all mags acting the same way. The new parts probably took up the slack for a time but the "original" problem never went away! I would recommend you send the gun back to Ruger for analysis and repair.......................Dick
Dick tnx for info. I have thought the same thing, Ruger sent me a new spring and ill give it a try. When you replace the spring and other parts the gun works fine after you shoot it a little bit it starts the same thing, that tells me that the action is scooting back in the stock and reduceing the spring tenson on the clip. Many tnx for your reply mabe this is the answer. Farrell
Tnx for the info I havent had a chance to shoot it now that gun has a new spring in it. Mine well do about 3" at a hundred yrds and thats good enough for me at deer hunting here in missouri again tnx for the info. FARRELL
