He put about 100 through his Ruger when his slide started locking back on rounds prior to the mag running dry. He pulled the slide back and let it go forward, but in another couple of rounds it would do the same thing. Does this mean there is a problem with the magazine or the pistol itself?
Shoot it some more, and REALLY be careful of your (his) grip.

Just a thought.

Thanks. I also thought about one of the three mags is not a Ruger mag. The spring was giving me some problems before I sold the gun to my son. If it is just happening when that mag is used, then it may be the culprit.

Thanks for the suggestion. I told him to watch his grip. We'll see the next time we go to shoot.

It is easy to end up with your thumb up against the slide stop. I've done it with mine (now keep the left thumb on the switch for the LaserMax laser and the right thumb overlapping the left hand)

Just bought my Ruger LC9s Pro February 2017. Took it to the range and ran into a few problems the fist 50 rounds. I had three or four failure to feeds, but more concerning is the failure to fire.

I started off with a full mag, loaded it, tap and tug to make sure it is properly seated. Rack the slide all the way back forcefully and release as not to ride the slide. Took aim and fired. On the third round I pulled the trigger all the way to the rear but nothing happens. The trigger has no tension. It felt like the trigger never reset. I check the chamber. There is a live round in the chamber as the gun had cycled properly. The chamber is closed and in battery. I pull the trigger a few more times for good measure but it does not fire.

I tap the mag and rack the slide ejecting the round and load the next. I pull the trigger and again it does not fire, the trigger is dead no tension.

This happens a few more times and I end up finishing another box of ammo with no idea what is wrong with the gun. Ill be sending it to Ruger for repair but I am a bit disappointed. From what I read it should be an easy fix but this would be a catastrophic failure in the field not a simple malfunction.

Dang...that's a new one on me. I hope you get it resolved straight away.

After the trigger went limp, did it ever reset again?

It seemed to reset sporadically maybe only shooting 2 or 3 out of the 7. I've still been messing with it, taking it apart, examining. I think someone else mentioned it but I did find that when pointing the muzzle upward, like pointing the gun to the sky, and then racking it always results in a trigger reset. Conversely pointing the muzzle down and racking it will always result in a slack trigger with no reset. Holding the muzzle horizontal or at other canted angles has mixed results.

I've been putting off sending it to ruger because I would like to know exactly what the problem is and how it can be fixed. Depending on the problem and whether it is likely to happen again will be a deciding factor in keeping it or trading it in for something else.

I just noticed your user name and started laughing! I had a good friend in high school who got in trouble for stealing the toilets from all the faculty restrooms, so that brought back memories.

Last night I made a short video of what goes on in the LC9s Pro when it's functioning properly. I'm uploading it now and I'll link it as soon as it's done. Maybe it'll help you see where the problem is.

Can you take some pictures?

Upload is being stupid slow and I have to leave my wifi to go to the doctor. I'll get back to this soon as I can. Got this damn oncologist keeps wanting to poke and prod on everything saying he wants to avoid "aggressive treatment". I appreciate that, but I'm ready to start it and get it over with if I need to.

Did you send it back? How long did it take, and was there any costs?

I have exactly the same issue you guys have described, and am debating whether to just fix it, or have them do it. If you haven't figured it out yet, btw... Break it down like you're going to clean it and operate the trigger while keeping a close eye on the sear. The issue is that the spring which keeps tension on it to stay up has slipped past the plate, so the sear just drops down with no way to actually engage the striker. It should be as simple as popping out that pivot pin and resetting that spring so that it is under tension again, but I'm thinking it is probably a bad spring though, as it doesn't look quite at long as it seems it should be. As in, if i re-set it, it's probably just going to pop out again anyhow.
