It seems that Ruger is all over the place with trying to get on the MeeToo striker bandwagon. Multiple lines with little parts interchangable ty. They're just flinging crap trying to see what sticks instead of focusing on a solid platform and support for it. Look at Glock and SIG. One thing I see with the Max9 mag is the ability to use single and double stack mags with a simple frame swap. How many half developed striker and trigger assemblies are they going to throw at the wall? If they just focused on one or two frame modules that are reliable with 3 slides and 3 plastic grip frames as well as a few different capacity mags that are all compatible would cost far less and be easier to support. Parts commonality also allows for easier production adjustments to suit the market. How many compact 9's does Ruger have on the market? Do the mags interchange between them etc??? That's why Glock has dominated the way they have. The Sig 365 as well. Frankly Ruger never should have jumped on the Mee Too striker bandwagon when they could have focused on the LCP2 semi single action hammer design. That was always Ruger's thing to do a handful of things well. My Max 9 has amazed and disappointed me at the same time. Light strikes seem to be the norm even when they actually fire the primers are barely touched. Because Ruger is flinging striker designs against the wall there's no interchangeability between springs and striker assemblies. How is the aftermarket going to support new crap every few years? Are my Max9 mags going to fit anything else in the future. I bought a Max 9 based on the performance of my Gen 1 LCP which has performed adequately and reliably. The trigger is it's biggest limiting factor but I have never questioned it's reliability. Glock as well. I was enjoying the Poly 80's because they used a reliable platform and corrected the reason I will never own a Glock which is the stupid grip angle.
