That's too bad, I might have saved mine a trip to Ruger. It's there now, hopefully being fixed. Meanwhile, it's been replaced for carry with my PPS 40 until I feel like I can trust it again.

The same info can be found in the ghost trigger mod videos.
I'll have to look at those videos. I keep mine meticulously clean, and tend not to force anything. I bought the gun new, so any abuse would have been done by me, and I'm not aware I've done any. We'll see what Ruger says about it, and how it performs when it gets back.

Thank god I found this link!
I just bought a new Ruger SR40 last week. Ever since I tried one at a range I decided it was the one for me but the only one I could find (last one available at the time) was a store showcase gun, so who knows how it was handled before I got it.
I've been to the range twice putting 100 rounds through each time. The first time the trigger didn't reset about 7 times, usually on the last round of the mag. I noticed the reset bar was bent a little inward, but wasn't sure if that was the way it was supposed to be.
I did a search on the internet to see if this was common and if I could fix it myself, which is how I ran into this forum site. Almost all suggestions said (it would fix itself after breaking it in? or) to make sure I clean the gun thoroughly, especially the firing pin assembly, so I did and headed back to the range.
Second time out it was the same, maybe worse, I though I might have bought a dud and was getting ready to send it to Ruger for repair until I saw this thread (how unfortunate the original post was deleted, for anyone having this problem.)
I've straightened out the trigger reset bar and can't wait to hit the range again with a working gun.

No doubt, some marginal trigger bars get shipped. Based on my own experience with reassembling my SR9c after cleaning, it's realy easy to have that trigger bar tab in the wrong position and use enough force to bend it slightly to where it starts sticking. Regular cleaning between the trigger bar and the side is absolutley needed.

I personally believe that a lot of SR series get sent back to Ruger due to owner error. Until those owners understand how to maintain and protect the trigger bar, it will happen again in the future.

(The SR series trigger bar mechanism is very similar to the one used in many other striker fired firearms. If you check other brand forums, you will see that trigger reset isn't a problem exclusive to Ruger.)

Update:
I just got back from the range after putting 200 rounds through. The trigger didn't reset twice in the first 50 rounds. Each time I just pushed the trigger reset bar towards the outside with my thumb. I put through about another 50 before it did it again. I pushed it out once more and the gun performed flawlessly for the next 100 rounds.
I really love the way this gun shoots so I'm glad this was figured out. I can't wait till I get back to the range.

Same problem. 9 round mag works fine. 15 round fully loaded jams trigger. Tried 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13 rounds in the 15 round mag,. Worked great. Ran out of ammo before trying 14 rods. Will test again next week.

Why can't you dry fire without a magazine. At my matches we have to show clear and drop the hammer

Because, as the manual says, you will cause damage.

The damage is the peening of the collar on the striker that will ultimately result in light strikes or no strikes at all.

Manuals do have a purpose.

You've been posting this question for a week or so now. Seems like no one has the answer to your question.

At this point, Ruger may be your best bet.

It will damage the striker pin (?) if my terminology is correct....one can remove the mag disconnect...I believe it's been posted here previously...and that's supposed to alleviate that issue.
I ran my ole SR40 through three or so years of local IDPA matches and after removing the mag disconnect I haven't had any problems. Before having removed that though I did have to have the striker-pin replaced once.

Went to the range Thurs.. First fully loaded 15 round mag, 5 trigger no reset. Reloaded, 2 trigger no resets.
Third, fourth and fifth times, no problems. Hopefully it has worked itself out.
I'll find out next week. 👌
