Ruger Recall


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Just wanted anyone that owns a Ruger SR9 to check out the following link to see if your handgun is on the recall list. http://www.ruger.com/SR9Recall/
They are also gonna send an extra mag back due to the inconvience for having to send it back.

The SR9 Recall is completed and the LCP recall is nearly done.

My wife and I both had those Ruger LCP pistols this summer and found them to be nothing more than JAM-O-MATICS!

A real joke for someone wanting a pistol to carry for self-defense in hot weather. Never bet your life on a cheap pocket pistol, we learned through our bank account the hard way. They are just JUNK in my opinion.

Call Ruger and they will send a call tag and fix the problem free of charge. Most people report they are pretty reliable and accurate.

What does that have to do with a recall?

I have fired my LCP quite a bit as I try to make sure i can actually shoot the thing when I need it. I like it because it is easy to conceal and I don't often wear vests, jackets, sweaters, etc. However, it is uncomfortable to shoot as the trigger guard digs into my finger during recoil.

That said, it has nothing to do with the recalls. I did have another problem with the LCP that you might want to keep an eye out for. Currently there is not a recall notice on this.

The magazine catch broke - twice. I sent it back to Ruger and they repaired it for free as one would expect. Nonetheless, it has kept me worried. There is nothing quite like the feeling of having the magazine fall out of your gun when you pull it out of your holster.

I think you might want to check your ammo. Ruger doesn't build junk. I trust my life on any of mine. If you call the service center you will get well taken care of, not a run around. They stand behind anything they make, and for good reason. Trust me, I've got auto's, revolvers, rimfire and centerfire rifles . Not a cheap piece of junk in the whole lot. I'm not alone in my experience. Your comments are something I've never heard used in the same sentence with Ruger!

Our sitting governor, Ricky Perry, reported that he offed a coyote while out walking. The press said it was a Ruger and semi-auto and .380 cal, I believe. That would narrow it down to the LCP.

Given the anti-firearms nature of our local press, it would hardly surprise me for them to get some details wrong. In fact it really surprised me that they did not organize a wake and funeral for said coyote

The reporter did expose some ignorance by asking what he "did" with the coyote.... too bad the Gov. didn't remember the classic quote from one of the Clint Eastwood movies.... "buzzards gotta eat, same as worms"

Just what that reporter thought one would do with a dead coyote, I do not know! I've always found that the last tracks they made were a pretty good spot to leave them in, unless you wanted the fur. Coyotes in Texas are pretty mangy at least 10 months out of the year, and the other two are iffy. Have rarely seen decent pelts down here.

Love the quote from the state police:

"People shoot coyotes all the time, snakes all the time," ( Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela ) Mange said. "We don't write reports."

Gunpa, no need to check any ammo! We tested these 2 Rugers and put some 250 rounds throught them, in between JAM sessions. I put Ruger LCP in the same boat as those KEL-TECS. A CHEAP POCKET PISTOL, that can get you scalped, putting it politely sir. They give people a false sense of security and I will stick to my statement that they are cheap JUNK. Now before you get a full head of steam up, I do own several RUGERS too. However, they are made with quality and this LCP is NOT period.

Now if you like your Ruger .380-auto so well, try running a penetration test with it on wet newspaper and the truth of the matter (using Cor-Bon Self Defense ammo) will be known shortly. They don't have enough penetration to suit my needs! Perhaps if your shooting Cock Roaches I gues.

I don't own a 380 of any kind (and never will) but I've seen it reviewed on TV and in gun rags and have never heard it bashed by anyone. 9mm is my minimum defense gun. Ive got a p89DC and it will feed and shoot anything you put in it . If I had your bad experience with any ruger, they would make it right. I have no doubt of that. Don't blame you for dumping the 380 cartridge.I do wish you happy primer poppin in the future! Gunpa

I too haven't met anyone that had any problems with them, nor the Kel Tecs. I own both (and a KT P3 and PF9), despite being relatively lousy accuracy beyond 10 yards and sharp recoil, they were always reliable in feeding, firing, and ejecting. The triggers have all been pretty awful, but when you can't carry anything else (church, formal attire functions) they are awesome, they go bang, and they just plain work.

Ruger stands behind their products, and they will take care of the customer no matter what. If you truly had a problem, you could have easily called Ruger, they would have sent UPS to your home to pick the pistol up, repaired it as necessary, and returned it to you at no charge.

As I said, they aren't my ideal carry gun, I have a S&W M&P 40 Compact that is my right hand man, its just as reliable, very accurate, has an awesome trigger, and in my Galco IWB, it disappears under most clothing.

New to Forum

Hi, I'm new to the forum and just looking through and was amazed to see such negative comments towards the LCP. I own a lot of Rugers and other Brands but I must say the LCP is a fine little pistol. If jams are happening, it may be due to limpwristing. This is just simply not holding the gun firm enough for it to cycle properly. Tighten up and you may find less jams. If not contact the firearms maker. Even the KELTEC P40 who ironed out all their problems in 3 generations, still failed due to limpwristing. Ive put close to 250 rounds thru the LCP and over 1000 through the KELTEC P40 and no jams yet, even thru the breakin period. Anyways, hello everyone.

Also, yes the LCP did have a recall. Firing if dropped. Prefixes beginning with 371 or above are ok and anything below needs to be worked on. There is also a stamp on the back striker type hammer signifys fixed on the earlier ones but id contact Ruger for details how to locate it.

I bought an early LCP for my wife - I'd love to have her carry a 9mm or a J Frame 38 Special, but the little revolver's cylinder is too bulky for pants pocket carry for her and any of the small 9's are significantly larger, and many are either VERY expensive and/or non 9mm +P rated. So, I put a Wolff spring kit in the LCP and her carry configuration is one Buffalo Bore Speer Gold Dot +P HP up the spout, followed by a magazine full of Buffalo Bore's 100 grain hard cast +Ps. The LCP is light, flat and NEVER fails to fire with anything I feed it. You give up a lot of energy whaen you choose a .380, but it's a lot better than a pocket .22. I'll say it again - the LCP is UTTERLY reliable, which is another very important factor in my decision for my wife's every day carry piece. The hot 380 loads are not far from standard 38 Special energy levels, even though the bullets are much lighter. I also have several other Ruger firearms. The LCP works for us just fine.

2Bits, I certainly repect your opinions - however, a +P loaded 380 is far better than a 357 Magnum left at home in the nightstand drawer. With a 380, 32 Auto or a 22, you give up a lot of ooomph. Hence, situational awareness and "shooting until it goes click" at close range is the tradeoff.
Given the choices, I carry a 38 Special J Frame with Buffalo Bore 158 grain SWCHP +Ps. But in certain situations, I feel comfortable with the hot loaded LCP 380. I am not a KelTec fan.

Don't know if you read the 5 gun 380 shoot off review in guns &ammo (I think) and kel-tec did poorly as far as quality. Not a fan either.

gunpa, although I am definately not a KelTec fan, I would never be disrespectful to somebody who had one that works and likes it. I, too, have several Ruger products and have had nothing but good experiences with them. Bill Ruger's politics were (IMO) wrong-headed. He's gone - the company in in other hands now. Getting back to the subject at hand, my P89DC, my early 1022, my Vaquero 44 Magnum and the wife's LCP WORK - each and every time.

Some of the people having problems with jamming should try multiple ammo brands some guns just don't feed certain ammo as well I know it does not make sense to some they think "hey it's a (ie.9mm) it should shoot what ever I stick in my magazine" but there are slight dimensional differences in different ammo brands brass it's a fact so don't be disgusted with your pistol if it won't shoot Winchester it might just need Federal and so on that being said it definitely is important to make sure you break your pistol in run a minimum of 200 rounds before you carry one for defensive purposes and find out what your pistol likes so it is going to operate when you really need it.
