New SR22 - problems?

So after Range day 3, when I went to firld strip it down to clean I could not remove the guide rod and spring. It was stuck. When I finally got it to come out, this is what I found.



So I assume that this is not normal and that the guide rof has somehow failed in the material causing these two "wings" to stick in the guide hole.

Thoughts?

Also I am now starting to notice some "damage to the slide itself near the slide lock. I usually only slingshot it from the hold open position. I did have several times yesterday when I did not get the slide to hold open when the last shot was fired. Is this the cause?







Thanks for any and all input.

The guide spring wasn't backwards on the guide rod was it?

How many rounds through it? I've only put about 200 through mine but no problems so far.

Hi Eyaker
It's hard to see on the pictures is the steel dowel pin in the slide at the back end were the slide stop hits the slide. There sould be a small pin there. It looks like the slide stop is rubing agaist the slide.Some people have had problems with this caused by a sharp back edge of the slide stop, which they cured by lightly sanding the back edge of the stop.
Was the small end of the recoil spring on guide rod first.You install the spring by turning CW looking from the breeach end. Mine looked like that after I turned it the wrong way. Ruger sent me two new ones.By the looks of your slide I hate to say it but I think it's going back to Ruger. I've got 2 SR22's with about 2500 rounds thru each with no issues at all,no slide wear,no loose barrel screw and no take down lever wear or issues. Sorry you had problems with yours they're great little guns.

Looks like your slide stop still has a rough edge that's damaging your slide. Also, can't tell for sure if you have a steel pin in there like this slide:

Yep, your slide stop is causing the damage to the slide. This also happened to my SR22. I sent it to Ruger and they repaired it at no cost.

I have a call/email into ruger. I'm waiting to hear back from them. I sent along the pictures. The funny thing to me about the guide rod is that the spring has never really seated on the rod as it states in the manual. Larger end down to the bottom cw rotation facing the breach as previously stated.

From what I can tell about the slide, is that there does seem to be the smallest steel pin on the slide, so it must be slide stop rubbing incorrectly.

Thanks for your input, I'll update more when I hear back.

Yup, you have the steel pin lol. Sorry, wasn't sure from the original picture. Just may need to get that burr removed from the slide stop.

Alright, she is going back to Arizona tomorrow. It is sad to only have had her for less than two weeks and already have to send her in. This is my second pistol purchase this year from Ruger. The other is my P95. I really like them both, but I am a little disappointed at this point. One of the reasons I decided on Ruger was the great reputation I have heard great things from them, their products and customer service. I just didn't think I would have to put them to the test so soon. Now is time for them to shine for me and I hope they do as I need to keep adding to my family!

Well I miss her already and hope she finds her way back to me as soon as possible. I will let you know when she is back.

Sounds like the spring was on backwards? The larger flared end of the spring inserts into the top of the slide. The smaller end latches onto the plastic rod and then inserted into the hole under the barrel.

Sorry when I said bottom I meant the muzzle end, the small end of the spring seats to the breach side or the flat of the larger diameter of the guide rod, correct? Like in Fig. 14 he's holding the large end of the spring.

Yes the small end goes over the first ridge only of the guide and butts up to the end but not over it. I find it's easier to stand the guide rod on end to do this. that came from a Ruger Tec. Hope you get it back soon I have two with about 2500 rds thru each with no problems. Good Luck. I'm sure Ruger will take care of it.

Sorry for your problems, of course in any mechanical systems there are going to be a few that don't perform as they should, this is true of cars, electronics, guns, etc. Hopefully you won't have any further problems.
