Great Forum for Ruger owners. I have a Mark II, LCP and just bought SR9C. The SR9C had a poor first outing. Used WWB and jammed, miss-fired one of each mag. Brought it home and did a complete clean-up, polished the feed and cleaned the firing pin chamber. Ordered some Magtech ammo. Hope the second trip goes better.

On the Mark II, I have been having problems with some 10 year old Remington thunderbolt LR. It this an ammo problem because of the age?

Welcome from the hills of Tennessee from a displaced South Carolinian!

You likely have solved the problem with the SR9c. If it is not cleaned thoroughly, especially the striker chamber before your first outing problems are not unusual. Light strikes, feed problems etc. A good cleaning will likely resolve that. Doubt ammo was the culprit.

Ammo may be the problems with the MkII. Rimfires are funny about ammo. A brand that works well in one may be junk in another. If it is 10 years old it should be okay, but hardening powder from moisture creeping in or things such as that could be problematic.

Try some new ammo, several different brands and see if that fixes things.

Good luck!
