I've put about 250 rounds of various types thru a new LC9s pro. I've had a jacketed hollow point jam at the feed ramp 3 or 4 times. I've also had a FMJ round jam in the same way.

I clean my Ruger frequently. Should I look to have someone polish the feed ramp or take similar steps to fix? Or should I not worry about it

Try recleaning with Hoppes #9 then take a cleaning patch and put a drop of oil on it and swab it just to leave a film . Also check make sure the magazine is fully locked into place . Make sure the slide rails have no grit or oil buildup to keep it from working properly .

I was having the same issues with mine and Ruger did it for free and paid the shipping both ways. I continued to have the feed issues with both the USA mags and the Mags made in Itally. I send the gun back to Ruger and they put almost 200 rounds of various brands through the gun without fail. I had been using a Hogue slip grip but sent them the gun without it, I haven't been to the range to test it but I have a feeling it might be the combination of my grip placement and the rubber sleeve so we'll see...

Hey, WWG

Is this happening with one magazine or all of them?

When this happens, it is almost always a problem in the magazine.

Disassemble, clean, reassemble see if that help.

Try loading only 3 or 4 rounds in and see if it happens.

Then, If it is only happening with the first and second rounds of a full magazine, you should be noticing that those last rounds are not "sticking up" at the same angle as the ones before. If so, it is a spring problem and give Ruger a call and they will send you another one, or the top of the magazine may have bent slightly and it is holding the nose of the round at a lower angle than it should be for proper feeding. You could try taking needle nose pliers and bending the retaining lips out slightly to see if that cures it. But, I would let them send a spring first before doing that. They will get it out to you in just a few days.

These should be tried before messing with feed ramp and such.

thanks for all the replies

I'm not sure if it is one or more mags. I have two Italy and one US and it seems to happen randomly. I used 9BP and thought maybe that JHP was the problem until my Blazer Brass FMJ hung.

I will try the magazines first before doing anything to the feed ramp.
