Well I am one of the few casualties of the SR22 takedown lever failure. It happened to me today at the range. After 600+ rounds in 2 months it failed. There was big chunk taken out of it and launched the aluminum slide 5 ft downrange and put a few good chips on one side. ERGH!!! Time to call Ruger Monday to send it in. As you know there was a video of someone who said it BLEW UP in his hand and luckily it didn't take his fingers. It didn't happen that way. I pressed the trigger and it didn't fire, it disengaged the takedown lever and launched the slide forward downrange.
