SR22 Slide Damage

This is a discussion on SR22 Slide Damage within the Ruger Rimfires forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; I wouldn't contemplate owning an SR22. Wasn't fussed on them at the start, even more so now. But I hope everybody gets theirs sorted....

I did call them about mine and they said to send it back, to see pics of mine. Ruger has it right now.

Mine has a very minor version of the symptoms listed in this thread. I do notice that the slide release is pushed up when a magazine is inserted to the point that it touches the slide.

Not sure if that is what is causing the issue, but I do like the idea of filing just the slightest amount of the slide release to eliminate the problem vs. sending to Ruger and being without for weeks.

I am thinking if we hit a slow period in our shooting (not likely soon) then I will call Ruger and send it back. I actually would not mind them having a few more months of minor issues pop up so I can send it back and have everything taken care of at once if that is needed.

Yours is a carbon copy of my damage, same side and almost exact location under the small R for registered. Amazing. I'm calling the factory now.

I know the posts on this topic dates back to 2012 but I thought I would share my experience as well. Mine is a year old with close to 1000 rounds through it. I noticed the heavy wear On the left rear of the slide and metal shavings. I sent it back to Ruger. They sent the repaired pistol back in about 2 weeks. I just received it today. The packing slip said they replaced the Ejector, Hammer Spring Guide Stop, Barrel, and Slide. They said they shot 30 rounds through it. They included a complementary Ruger cleaning cloth. Anxious to get to the range and try it out.

I believe it was the hammer spring guide stop was the culprit, having a sharp edge, and being made of steel, cut into the aluminum slide with each cycle of the slide. I have fired less than a hundred rounds through each of my two SR22s, but can see no slide damage under close observation. I did check for sharp edges on the aforementioned stop before I went to the range with them, after being made aware of the issue on this forum.
