I have a almost new sr9c , i put around 250 rds through it. after about 100 rds the slide lock spring came off and held the slide open after every rd, i saw ruger will fix this but the fix doesnt look much better than the initial setup, for a temp measure ive put the spring back on. crimped it in place and put a dab of super glue on it and also put a dab under the slide lock button so its not possible to move upward in the event of another failure. i know this isnt the recc way to fix the issue but i know for sure if i need the gun to work i wont suffer a failure at the wrong time, i was thinkin of just removing the slide lock lever completely and using a washer in its place to just fill the space next to the trigger assembly but i think the super glue method works ok. this seems to be a very bad design from the factory and i doubt ill buy another ruger again.has anyone found a permanent and trustworthy fix to this issue or just the ruger new spring? Its harder to break the gun down without the slide lock but its still possible.
