    Thumbs down RUGER SR9c PEENING? **UPDATED**

    Has anyone here dealt with this? What I'm really wondering is how Ruger is still getting away with it...
    I ask because I'm currently doing the "Ruger tango".

    No idea because mine had been 100% prefect since initial breakin and has not had a single failure in the last 1300-1400 rounds. So I dont know what they would be "getting away with" since everyone I know that also has one is nothing but happy with it.

    Ok i'll try to get some pics up. I took some pics a few days before it left for Ruger in Arizona. They're not as clear as I would like, and it got worse after the pictures were taken..simply from racking the slide. The reason why I wondered how they are "getting away" with it is because it is a metal problem. This soft metal we're talking about, and when it's on a firearm that's definitely not a good thing. Mine, though the pictures may not adequately show, was worse than what I saw online. I'll work on getting them up for you.

    Like I said, it got worse and peening also developed back on the barrel lugs near where the loaded chamber indicator is.

    Yeah... Don't think I would be thrilled about that. How many rounds through the weapon? And when did it start?

    That's the best part! The gun was never fired, only "played with" if you know what I mean. The slide was just racked, and even from that I noticed it getting worse before we sent it away. So, to be honest by the time we sent it away it was worse than anything I had seen online. So we sent it and it got to Arizona on..Friday I think. So We'll let them have it for a while. It's really disappointing and I just keep thinking that Glock and Sig etc. don't have these problems... It makes me wonder what Ruger's problem is. I love the gun from what time I got to spend with it but...

    Unfired? Wow....Fuck that shit! Why would that hood be so soft? Wonder if your barrel was just unhardened and snuck through some how?

    Well, what confuses me is that I can't recall noticing anything at the store. I really think it got progressively worse just by racking it and the like.

    I don't see it as a "snuck through" problem. I see at something be very wrong with their metal or their processes. From what I read online, it's a hit and miss issue though. Frustrating but, whatever...today's day #1 at Ruger.
