I am looking at a used SR9. Being in Canada means that I do not have access to the Ruger factory. Are there certain of these that I should avoid. I do see that certain pistols have problems. Dave

There were some issues early on in production. There was a recall where the trigger mechanism was changed out. Later there were some folks finding that they had some peening (unusual wear) where the slide interfaces with the barrel hood/firing chamber. So far as I know these things have been taken care of.

I just picked up a full size SR9 and it is good-to-go. Buy with confidence.

You say "Being in Canada means that I do not have access to the Ruger factory." I am curious, when you buy a US made gun in Canada, can't you get it serviced by sending it back thru the gun dealer?

I don't know as I have never purchased anything new. I am an OM fan and the SR9 would be my only exception. I am buying the SR9 privately. I do know that the paperwork is horrible in both directions. I expect that there is some type of private repair facility here but it would not be a user friendly source for repairs as you have when you send it back to Ruger. David

Make sure you buy one that has the D shaped mag. release and you will be fine. It has the latest trigger group and are alot better (lighter trigger) than the older round mag. release.
