Ok, I received a "canned" response from Ruger, but it just bolsters what many have said here over and over. No matter the manufacturer, the firearm or the shooter...we all get a "bad apple" now and again. IF I got a "lemon" from Ruger I have no doubt that I would be able to resolve it without a great deal of problems.
I don't see enough total complaints on the newest rifles to warrant a large amount of worry. I've perused several forums discussing almost every .308 AR-10 type piston driven rifle and found about the same number of complaints, failures, gripes, etc. SO, I'm not terribly concerned one way or the other.
Hopefully the rifle I eventually get will stand the test of time and be a reliable asset.

Have a question regarding the Sr-762 and ejection of magazines causing the bolt to slam home. Is this condition normal? I just got this rifle and am concerned because my Sr-556 does not do this. It also dislodges from its catch too easily in my opinion from a bump or small jolt. I haven't seen anyone else complain about this happening so I'm not sure this isn't normal but suspect it isn't right. Anyone have similar issue? It does this every time.

This is not normal. The bolt should stay open until you hit the bolt release button. Call Ruger as you probably will need to send it back to them. I hope you saved the shipping box. They will fix it.

Check to make sure that you are cocking the bolt all the way back ! I had the same problem with mine and found that I was not fully manually cocking the bole and it was sticking on the edge of the magazine but was not back enough for the mechanical bolt stop to engage. I have a hydraulic buffer which makes it a little stiffer and harder to manually fully pull the bolt back enough to engage the bolt catch. Anyway, it just a thought and something that you can easily check just watch out for your fingers (when that bolt slams home it can do a job on your fingers !!!

In Oct 2016, I purchased a Ruger SR762 with Serial #562-06XXX. First trip to the range, I shot approximately 50 rounds with not problems. I have cleaned the gun per all instructions (including gas port, etc.). However, the last two trips to the range the gun appears to be having some of the issues mentioned in this post...extractor issues (even on 3 gas selection) with several different types of factory ammo. Sometimes, the gun will eject a spent case but not load the next round. I guess I need to call Ruger. Any other suggestions.

gmoore1187, If you haven't called Ruger yet do so. I bought a S/N 562-05XXX in April 2016. Didn't get to shoot it until January (Rotator Cuff). Had most of the problems described here. Gas Reg on 2, FTE; Switched to 3, got it to eject but the bolt wouldn't lock into battery. Had to use the forward assist. Released an empty mag and the bolt the bolt release activated. Shot four brands of factory ammo. All the same results. I called Ruger and they told me to send it in. It's there now. They will fix it.

Well, an update on my SR 762. I bought two guns at one time. One for myself and one for my son. Both SR 762s are now at Ruger for the 2nd time. I sent them back the 1st time with detailed explanation. In one gun, they replaced gas regulator and buffer spring. The other gun they "Polished Chamber". They sent them back and very disappointingly, less than 25 rounds into the range session both guns malfunctioned just as they did before I sent them to Ruger the 1st time. So, as of this writing, both guns are at Ruger because they will not shoot on Gas Port #2 no matter what ammo I use (Hornady, Black Hills, Federal Premium, Federal Fusion, Federal American Eagle, Winchester...so no low end stuff). I have probably spent $300 on ammo testing and shooting these guns. I requested new guns in my letter to Ruger with the return trip. We will see what happens.

I received mine last Saturday. They replaced the buffer spring, fired twelve rounds with no malfunction. I have not fired it yet. We'll see what happens.
