My Ruger Standard, which I inherited from my father (and he from his father) is having serious issues. When I got the pistol it had been sitting for a long time and needed more TLC than I knew how to give it. so I sent it into Ruger for a complete overhaul and rebluing. Yes, I realize the rebluing ruins the collector value but I wanted to be able to shoot it and I live near an ocean and worry about rust.

Ruger returns it with work order stating they ran 3 magazines of CCI mini mag through it no problem. Unfortunately that was during a previous ammo shortage and I couldn't get mini mags. I tried pretty much every 22LR I could get ahold of, including recently CCI mini mags (both jacketed HP and LRN). And still can't get a single magazine (I have six, all not original) to run.

I recently replaced the recoil spring with one from Ruger, still no love. :(

So my questions:
1- since the gun was refurbished should I just return it with all the mags and say fix it? (it's been 8 years)
2- should I try new magazines? (I did try "adjusting" feed lips etc. Ruger-MK-Mags which didn't help and may have hurt)
3- something else?

I got them from Ruger. Actually Mark1 mags. They don't carry ruger standard anymore. So I'll have to change the follower button to the other side.

So I'd venture a guess that they are 9 rounders
