Hi ca Survivor, thanks for your question.
I don't know - maybe the picture I took is giving such impression, but I made another one today - just to clear the confusion caused by the first one.

General Firearms Forum

I think that " fully supported" is a relative term when applied to autoloading pistols.
All that I have owned, required some sort of feed ramp machined into the bottom chamber entrance area for the round to feed from the magazine.
This will leave some unsupported brass hanging out over the feed ramp, however as long as the case holds solid I would consider it fully supported.
I can't see any "smile" under the brass.
Good thing is that during this inspection I discovered one thing that I missed previously.
Look at the top front of the chamber, please...

General Firearms Forum

Slight wear in form of peening at the spot were the chamber block hits the inside of the slide when the pistol is fired.
Seems like it's a typical issue with SR series of pistols.
I'll stay focused on that spot in the future to let You know if it'll get any worse. So far it didn't affect the function though.

Hi,
it's the Pachmayr No# 1 slip on grip.
Wasn't probably designed for SR9 or 40, but it fits just fine.
I came across another grip made by Limbsaver and I may give it a try soon as well.

Just to let you know, I bought a SR9 based on this thread. So thank you for replying so quickly. I have another question, Have you thought of a rail mounted light? I'm not finding any good info for weapon light and their compatibly with the SR9.

I'm more than glad that You found this topic helpful.
Well, regarding the light - I'm not there yet - sorry.
I think that the main reason for that are the oppressive gun laws that we have here. I've spent quite a long time trying to come up with the idea of HD weapon that (in accordance with the local regulations) can be deployed fast in case of the crisis.
What I've found is that only a 10 round pistol magazine feed (long story), long gun with the barrel of 18.5" (or longer) may satisfy all the stupid, local regulations and help me to defend my home at the same time. So currently I'm looking at the Canadian versions of Kel-Tec carbines (18.5" SU16 with RRA LAR 10 round pistol .223 magazine vs 18.5" SUB 2000) or custom length barrel Beretta CX4.
Bottom line is that any handgun (except for work if You are carrying one here) is pretty much just the sporting item.

That sucks man, I'm sorry. I've been doing some more research and I think I might be going with a surefire TRL-1.

yes, you are right, but I see so much cartrige head expose, the cases I had blown did it right there at the case head, it was a bad batch from Federal though, good report.
edit to add: I think that wear on top of the barrel chamber is normal. But keep and eye on it LOL.

To my surprise that new stance resolved the problem of the empties banging at my forehead. Completely.
Now all are flying high to the right at about 4 o clock position.
Back to Weaver and the problem did re-appear occasionally.
I just need to improve accuracy with this new stance as it's not as good as with my original stance.
Good thing is that there is literally no recoil now...pretty cool...ehhh

Nestor, that is hands down the best video I've seen on grip. I went to the range with a buddy from work today and I couldn't find the right words to help describe the grip method I was using.

Glad you posted it and congrats on your Ruger running like a top!

That's how I've instinctively run my pistols for years.

Doing something right and didn't even know it---it was just what worked for me.

Thanks. Sitting in the safe for now, but I was planning to take it to the range next week actually. Will post some report soon.

Good for Canada on that point, my understanding was that it never helped anything (like most gun control measures) and cost a bundle.

Best of luck on the SR9. I'm a fan of Rugers, my wife and I have a SR9C that we really like. Haven't had a chance to shoot it a lot but 300 flawless rounds downrange so far.

There was a small, sharp piece of plastic sticking out from the frame and cutting into my hand. Leftover from the frame molding process I guess. Sandpaper corrected the problem.[/QUOTE]

this is one of the reasons I don't like Ruger, they didn't see that at the factory?

Seems like a pretty trivial reason for not liking a gun manufacturer. Sort of like saying "I would have married her but her little toes aren't pretty." Don

I think that majority of the Ruger clients are buying their guns for value/reliability reasons. They are ready to accept/work on some small imperfections like the one mentioned above. Sand paper and 20 seconds of my time fixed that just fine BTW. Pistol is reliable, accurate and inexpensive which for many people is the just right mixture. Of course it's impossible to please everyone.
