Ok so i have had this gun for 6 months and only shot about 150 Rounds through it :( turns out it jammed up after i used that Monarch Ammunition.I hear that that ammo has extra hard primers. That true?

Well all in all i was looking at it today and got the pin free but it wont push through the hole where it hits the primer. Anyone know if this could be a bent Firing pin or something else... and any idea on how much it would run for repair????

thanks all

Ruger will probably fix it for free. They have great customer service. Give them a call. In the mean time, check out this website; it has a blow-up of the pistol with where everything goes.

I had a Ruger Single Action that I had owned for over ten years. Had a problem with the extra cylinder. I called them and they had me send in the revolver with both cylinders. They not only fixed the problem for free, they reblued the gun and changed out some screws with a newer version.

Cool thanks.
But hey if i send it in should i send the whole gun or just the slide? and if i send the whole gun do you think will they send it direct to my home? I heard that they would probably make you get an FFL setup to receive the gun back from repair?

thanks in advance

NO, you do NOT have to have an FFL to receive a gun back from repair. Talk to Ruger and send back whatever they suggest.

LHB1 is correct. I've sent guns to Ruger, Clark Custom Guns, High Standard, and Smith & Wesson for repair and they all just sent the gun directly to me when it was done. No need to get an FFL involved, since it is your gun and it was just in for repair. I would send the whole gun, just so they can check it all over.

Since it's under warranty, see if they will send you a pre-paid UPS shipping box. That will save you the cost for the overnight service required on a handgun.

And let us know what the problem was, once they get it fixed.

Have seen numerous guns coming into the shop because of Monarch ammo.Usually its the 223,9mm and 7.62x39.Most of the problems we have seen are weak casings that crack ,expand and then stick in the chamber.Monarch is cheap at Academy here and a lot of people are having trouble with this brand of ammo.
