Buck I'm looking for some advice, I have a P345 that was working the last time it was shot a few years ago but won't fire now. The firing pin isn't striking the primer and I'm at a lost on what could have caused this failure along with how to remove the firing pin as it doesn't seem to be a simple process like other guns I've worked on before. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like Ruger should have had a chance at it. Would have been cheaper.

Michael ... It sounds like the firing pin may not be clearing the firing pin block plunger. To determine the issue and to remove, check and clean the components involved (including the firing pin) it is necessary to remove the rear sight and safeties as well as the firing block components contained beneath the rear sight. This can be a tricky procedure if you are not familiar with disassembling firearms to this level. If you are ... have at it. If not, I would recommend you consider contacting Ruger customer service for repair.
