Manual has Only this

The SR-SERIES pistols are compatible with all factory ammunition of the correct caliber loaded to U.S. Industry Standards, including high-velocity and hollow-point loads, loaded in brass, aluminum, or steel cartridge cases. No 9mm Parabellum, 40 S&W or 45 Auto ammunition manufactured in accordance with NATO, U.S., SAAMI, or CIP standards is known to be beyond the design limits or known not to function in these pistols.

Nothing in manual mentions anything about hard cast lead.

The only common gun you cant run lead in is Glocks. Ruger have conventional rifling. Dont over think it.

After how ,any rounds, do you change recoil spring assembly?

I already shot it and it was good but the slide was hard to rack even though it was an old range gun.

Do you guys have a video on how to disassemble and clean the gun?

I read that gun was having light strikes and

Also the slide on grip extension for 17 round extension was not holding properly?


Just go buy something else......

Appears that they're not completely discontinued, but now just distributor exclusives.

Ruger doesn't sell directly to gun stores, only to distributors anyway. The fact that they say distributor exclusives does not mean they cannot be found easily. It just means they are being sold only through that distributor. The gun store may order the same gun from any number of distributors normally.

Ruger uses hammer-forged barrels with conventional spiral rifling.

Glock, IMI/IWI Jericho pistols, CZ vz82 (9x18mm Markarov) and probably a few others I haven't owned use polygonal rifling, and shouldn't be fed soft lead bullets.

This information is not in ruger sr9c manual and I cannot find this on ruger web site.

The following Ruger video shows the process of hammer-forging barrel. At 1:22 in the video, you can see the mandrel with the conventional spiral rifling.

Good Lord then go ask somewhere else. You asked a question you got an answer. Go find a gunsmith and ask him then tell him you dont believe him. I can look at the damned barrel and tell what kind it is, what's your problem. Look at it.

Newtoruger, here's the bore of my 9E, which has the same rifling as the rest of the SR 9mms. You can clearly see the traditional land-and-groove rifling. Ruger does not currently have a gun in its lineup with polygonal rifling. Hard cast lead is fine, if that's what you want to use.
