    The striker isn't damaged. Gun is restored to factory original. Found the box and manual. It'll be a great gun for somebody to take to the range once and stick in their nightstand for eternity.

    I tried an SR9 and SR40 when they first were introduced. I thought they were both snappier than other polymer pistols of the same size and weight.

    Just let me know when it comes up for sale. I would be interested.

    I think the SR series was better than the American series. If Ruger got rid of the magazine disconnect, loaded chamber indicator, and manual safety then it would be a great pistol. I had a Ruger SR9C and it was really accurate if I did my part. Sadly, I sold it to fund something else. I wouldn*t buy another one unless Ruger *upgraded* it to my previously mentioned suggestions.

    I think the Security 9 is a better pistol than the SR9 or the Ruger American, but I like the P85 more.

    Unfortunately, I've lost all confidence in the SR line. My first pistol was an SR9c. I liked it, but it had problems with light primer strikes and not going into battery that a trip back to Ruger didn't fix. I traded it in for something more reliable. Just yesterday I talked to another guy who had similar problems.

    We had a guy in state constable basic training who had an SR9 jam-o-matic. Nothing tries everyone's patience more than waiting after every course of fire for a shooter and instructor to fumble with an unreliable gun.

    I like the way they feel in my hand. I understand that some of them have been reliable. But I've seen too many problems to trust them, especially when there are much more reliable options.

    Hmm, I have an SR9 that I bought new in 2011. Has been fine for me. I changed to a metal guide rod and removed the magazine disconnect. I can dry fire with snap caps as well no problem.

    Regarding light primer strikes, Galloway Precision does make stronger striker springs.
