I had a broken (shattered into four pieces) breech block pin on my sr-22 after 2000 or so rounds. I sent it to Ruger and they sent it back with a note saying they had replaced the pin and test fired the pistol with 30 rounds.

I called customer service when I got the gun back and talked to a very nice lady. I asked her what could have caused this malfunction. She said she did not know.

I am concerned that this could reoccur. Has anyone else had, or heard of this problem? Any ideas on the cause?

My wife's SR22 did the same thing. Currently looking for a replacement. Not sure what caused it, as hers broke in half after about 2500 rounds or so. Could be the strength of the roll pin being used or uneven stress on the pin causing it to crack and eventually break.
