So I sent out my SR9 today for warranty work. The magazine release button keeps sticking. Anyone have this problem?

I think a while back, there was a "fix" for this listed; must have been about a year ago, Try a search for it; I been meaning to look it up and do a little work on mine.

I called Ruger today about the mag release and talked to a Ruger tech named Sam. He told me that they remove the release and scotchbrite it, then lube it with lithium grease and re-install. I tried it, only I had to use 0000 steel wool and Tetra Gun Grease. It worked fine. Still a little hard to use with a full mag but I'm confident that it will get better with use like stated here. It is much, much smoother now.

Now I'll go after the mag disconnect.

its gonna take more then grease to fix mine ,the mag catch actualy turns on an angle, like maybe a crack in the metal when you push the button.
