Just picked up this SR40c 3 weeks ago and have had issues with it not cocking on occasion.

It chambers the round, but the firing pin never locks back. It strikes the round leaving a tick mark on it, but it just never cocks.

It does this more on the 9 round clip (like every 3rd round) and only does it on the 15 round clip within the last 3 rounds.

Checked the firing pin for burrs or damage and it looks fine.

It does seem to be loading the rounds a little strange by looking at the wear on the guide. Off to the left a bit. My SR9c loads direct center.

Any suggestions?

Sending it back to Ruger in a couple days, but would rather not if it's an easy fix.

Thanks!!

Some of the SR40c's have issues with light strikes, sounds like what is happening to yours.

You're doing the right thing though, Ruger will fix her up and have her back to ya in no time!

Have you discussed your issue with Ruger's customer service department?

If not, my suggestion would be to call them immediately.

Welcome to the forum. It sounds like your SR40c needs to go back to Ruger.
