Ruger 3314 SR9c 17+1 9mm 3.4"
by Jose V Date Added: Sunday 10 June, 2012
After more than one year on the fence between the SR9c and a couple of other handguns (like the Walther PPS) I finally ordered the Ruger SR9c. First time ordering a firearm online. I could not find the blued version anywhere around here, so I decided to give it a try. Price wise, I ended up saving a bit, not much, what with the transfer fees ($32) and the shipping insurance, etc. Still, not a bad deal. Ordered on thursday, gun was at the local FFL on Monday, process took 15 minutes and I was out the door with my new toy.

The SR9c is a well designed, easy to conceal, easy to shoot handgun. I decided to go with Ruger because I have put thousands of rounds through a P95 and love it. Well, glad I did, because I got some unexpected trouble. After cleaning the gun I took it to the range and put 150 rounds of Federal 9mm down range. No problem cycling, feeding or extracting, BUT the trigger got stuck back 5 times. It would not reset. A new round was chambered, but the trigger was stuck back. After manually cycling the slide, on I went. Five times. Went home rather disappointed, further cleaned the gun, this time got into the striker channel, etc, no grease, no extra oil. Another 100 rounds, another three trigger failures to reset... VERY disappointed, especially because I have been pretty much convincing Ruger is the best out there.

So maybe I got a lemon. A quick search on line shows that this is a known problem, with several people noticing. Many, most, don't. My luck. It goes back tomorrow to Ruger.

Maybe I should have bought the Walther, but will wait until I get it back. I still trust Ruger will do the right thing. Five stars for accuracy (8 out of 10 rounds on a sillouette at 60 YARDS), ergonomics, design and operation (despite the bear of a double recoil spring). 1 star for reliability (the one I got, I don't want to generalize, great reports out there on this gun).

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
