Well,........today me and my new (to me) Ruger P97 that I paid $250.00 for got busy. I put alot of lead down range. After about 150 rounds the magazine would not stay in the pistol. I pull the triger and the gun goes "BOOM" the mag would hit the dirt. I thought some how I was hitting the mag release but I checked it and I was not hitting the mag release. I gave the gun over to my friend and he shot it and the same thing would happen to him, after every shot the mag would release. We took it into the house and sat at the dinner table with the gun trying to figure out the problem. I grabbed the box and was look at the instruction book and found a plastic bag with 4 mag release buttons and 4 springs. This tells me someone had a problem with the mag release. Has anyone had a problem like this before?? What can I do to fix the problem and what is the problem?? Any help would be nice. I really like the way this Ruger shots, feels, and looks...But I need a pistol thay works. My friend was surprized that a Ruger was doing this due to he has had Rugers before and he states that they are a solid weapon.
