I agree with trying a new mag. They are usually factory set to about .200" gap at both - front and back of the rear feed lips. That's not far off. Lee Wirthwein's setting did not work at all in my pistols. I finally settled on this gap for most reliable operation in mine:



Note- I traded away all my mags 3:1 that I'd rounded off the feed lips on (another internet suggestion). They behaved poorly in my pistols as well.

Is that the original medallion, or did Ruger replace it when you sent it to Ruger?
Good eye Gary.

After looking a bit closer at the OP's pics, I'd say his pistol is almost certainly a Type III Red Eagle. One of the more common varieties, but still collectable.

The serial number should be somewhere in the 3648-9101 range.
