Ruger 3478 SR40c 9+1 40S&W 3.5"
by Andrew R Date Added: Saturday 23 June, 2012
Do not buy this weapon! I bought it several weeks ago. After firing about one hundred rounds through it it began to have very frequent light primer strikes. I notified Ruger and sent it in for repairs. They replaced the trigger assembly and striker assembly and sent it back to me very quickly. I took it to the range and once again, after about one hundred rounds it began to have frequent light primer strikes. I've used a variety of high quality ammo. I have never dry fired it without an empty magazine inserted. And yes, I cleaned out all of the gunk in the striker canal that Ruger puts in there. This weapon is unreliable and therefor unacceptable. The only conclusion that I can come to is that the striker assembly is poorly designed. I'm going to send it into Ruger one last time and then I'm going to sell it as soon as it comes back. I truly wanted this weapon to work out. When it works, it works great. It is highly accurate, feels great in my hands, and I love the 3 dot adjustable sights. The thumb safety is also very easy to quickly operate with the flick of a thumb. Very little recoil for a .40 S&W. However, I cannot trust my life to an unreliable weapon. Ruger, please redesign your striker assembly and you'll have a real winner.
