Oh well, Ruger will make it right for me, will call them monday...

When you send the rifle back include a print out of the photos you took showing the way it jammed. That way at least they will know where to start looking.

All of you guys should send in a copy of a photo showing exactly what your rifle is doing at the time it failed to function. I did that with a Mini 14 that was jamming up on me.

no the 2 less rounds is because the spring will give when the bullets hits the bolt that is the actual purpose. if the spring is fully compressed then it will not give as much making it harder to get the magazine in correctly sometimes.. that's what the show was talking about at least... but I have also heard some people also do it to keep the spring from becoming too weak like you were saying ..if I remember right that's the reason I started doing it in my hand guns (to make the spring last longer) because they sit around for a long time with bullets in the magazines

BACK TO RUGER AGAIN!

It is one thing to have to send it back for warranty once. But I specifically asked Ruger to verify proper feeding after completing the repair, and that request was obviously ignored.

Very frustrating.
yeah I think sending it in more than once would be very frustrating..... I talked to a couple guys today at the gun show that also have the 762 they all say that there's are running perfectly only place I could find people having problems with on the Internet so I really don't think it's a very widespread problem...I think they should just send you a brand new gun..

I continue to have the same problem with my SR-762. Here is a picture of it:










No, there's nothing wrong with your computer/tablet/smartphone. Or my Photobucket account, for that matter. You can't see my SR-762 because I don't have one. Humph. Sure wish I could afford one so that I could join in this fun.

Your problem Ditto, is your priorities. Just because you would rather eat or pay your mortgage or put gas in your truck (or whatever) is the reason you don't have one. Just when you think your ship has docked and you get one, then you have to buy bullets. It's like shooting dollars down range and you can shoot 150 in 20 minutes, easy. Good luck to you.

Sounds about the same for me. After the second return, Ruger said it couldn't be fixed and offered a new rifle. Old ser.#561-013xx and new 561-077xx. The new one has been flawless but I've shot less than 400 rounds. Hopefully I have a good one now. Good luck to you.

I see what you're saying Clownbow. The 762 and some of my colt 45 mags are very tight when fully loaded. I also have a colt m-4 and use mostly old mil. mags. These don't feel near as tight when loaded but I've never had a problem with them. I know they are old but still seem to function well.

That appears to be a serial # in the problem range. My first 762 was an x16xx which they managed to fix by replacing the entire upper receiver and all parts, including polishing the BCG, ramps, etc and replacing the trigger group on the lower. If it ever acts up again I will demand an entire new weapon, which I suggest you should do or get your money back.

yeah I've never had a problem either its just something that I heard about and I thought it made sense so I started loading a couple less figured it wouldn't hurt anything..maybe even save me a little bit of ammo lol... but I guess this won't help with the Ruger probably right now

Wow! Who did they admit that too??

BTW I recently got a 762 w/Gen 3 PMags and it runs flawlessly... S/N 066XX. Only thing odd was that it didn't ship with the handguard covers, my LGS said all the ones they recieved have been like that. I'll call the Sturm and see what's up with that.

Tim

**Edit** Just got off the phone w/Ruger Customer Service and they are shipping the hand guard covers out ASAP. They had no clue why they were not included...

Simple math.

I must say that the Ruger CS people with whom I have dealt have been extremely courteous. They have tried to be helpful.
