Question Galloway Precision consequences?

Was in the LGS today chatting with one of the associates. I told her about considering the Galloway Precision Smooth It Trigger kit and asking if they could install it for me. She told me I should call Ruger first and find out if that modification would void my warranty. Until I can, I'll ask you. Does modifying the gun like that void the warranty and if so is it worth it? Is there a workaround if I do it and the gun does break? Thanks for your consideration.

If you look on the last page of the manual that came with your gun, you will see that Ruger does not provide a warranty. So there is no warranty to void.

I have about a dozen Rugers and have only had to send one in. It had mods and there were no problems. In fact, I thought they were excellent.

I've got a smooth-it kit4 that is going into my SR9 tomorrow; the parts are all drop-in replacements for the factory parts, there is no modifcaiton to any component so I don't see how they could void the warrenty (although to be safe I might put the factory parts back in if I had to ever send it in)

If in question, keep the old trigger parts and install before you ship it back.

my understanding is that ruger will replace any none factory parts with their stock parts as part of repair. you will not have the aftermarket parts returned to you afterword. I have modified all three of mine to some extent so all three triggers are as close to identical as possible, and have changed recoil springs as well. if I ever have to send one back I will likely pull the guide rod and spring and return the pistol with the stock springs. I seriously doubt that will be an issue, the guns are pretty stout.

I just put all the Galloway parts into my LCP and it went super smooth. But if I ever did have to send the gun back to Ruger, I would just put all the stock parts back in first.

refugeepj: That was really the question I had. She was telling me they sent a Kimber back for some work (slide wouldn't lock back and the gun would fire even when the safety was on.) The guy had replaced the stock trigger with a Wilson Combat Trigger and Kimber wanted to charge them $400 + to put the gun back into stock form. I'm going to go ahead and do it and like the rest of you said, IF it ever needs to go back, put it back into stock form before shipping. Thanks for all the replies and it's good to know how well the Galloway mods work.

The trouble with the Galloway LC9 mods is that Galloway modifies the factory parts that you send them. Those parts are not available from Ruger or anywhere else, so once the Galloway modification is done, it is permanent. One part of the modification drills a small hole in the trigger bar. One could argue that drilling a hole in anything will weaken it. It is not a high stress part, but it clearly is no longer stock. The other part of the mod involves changing the shape of another part. Most who have had the modification done seem to feel that it is a huge improvement. There have been almost no complaints. But if you send the gun to Ruger after having done the mods, you will probably have to have the mods done again when it comes back. Mr. Galloway seems to be in the process of having his own parts fabricated. Once he has done that, the issue is over.

That's good to know. Actually, the gun I'm going to modify is my SR9c. Does that weapon require the drilling or is it drop in? I also just got done applying my first coat of Frog Lube on it. Waiting for it to cool so I can put it back together. I can't wait to get it to the range and send a couple hundred rounds through it. It's a recent acquisition and I've only got 3 rounds through it so far. Life tends to get in the way around here on occasion.

I bought the Galloway "Smooth It - Kit 4" (and the Heavy striker spring) for my SR9 a few months ago; that kit comes with the Ghost Ultimate trigger bar which requries zero fitting or modification (of the parts that come with the kit, or any factory aprts you leave in the gun)... I installed it all yesterday and it wasn't difficult; but I had Eric's 2 SR9 videos' open and referenced them repeatedly as I went along. I'm heading to the range later today to try it out!!

Looking at Galloway's sight today it appears that they now are using the Ghost "Tactical" bar with the "Smooth It Kit 4" for the SR9c's which DOES require some fitting (of the Ghost Bar itself, not to any factory parts) .... I'm not sure why they made the change, but I emailed Eric to ask since I've also got a SR9c and was thinking of upgrading it too
