Angry Ruger American tiny problem

My Ruger American.45 jammed up good at the range yesterday. round in the chamber, can't move the slide, guide rod poking out about 1/8 of an inch. Got it fixed, no more problems the rest of the day. Spooky. I only had a Ruger "club" until the guide rod was fixed. I notified Ruger by phone. I think I'm the only guy on the planet to have this happen. Good luck everyone.

Welcome to the forum!

Smart move contacting Ruger. It's best to have it checked over by someone. I hope it turns out to be an enjoyable firearm.

The guide rod issue would have concerned me as well but jams always happen here and there in semi autos. I don't care what brand it is every once in a while a jam happens.

Glad you was at the range.

A friend had a taurus 1911 that jammed up loaded. It took me probably a 1/2 hour to get it safely tore apart. I tore down, cleaned, and re assembled it, and its ran fine . Still scratching my head over that one. The slide locked up closed tight as could be. I certainly wouldnt be carrying it after that episode, but he does.

And I disagree. Every brand does NOT jam. You get what you pay for.

Good luck.
