    Nope. 980 rounds through mine and only two malfunctions which were probably more of an ammo issue.

    No Problem either, but only 100 rounds thru it so far. Anybody have the Crimson laser grip option?

    Like it? yes / no?

    I had an issue with mine (shot extremely low).Sent it back to Ruger( their dime)Got it back in two weeks.They replaced the front sight.Got mine in March.800+-mostly cheap,assorted rounds without a hiccup.Once you get used to the long trigger it's really accurate.I plan on getting the CT laserguard for it.It was just released.For me the trigger took some practice but I eventually got it.It shoots better groups than all my pistols(except .22's).

    Sorry to hear about your new Ruger problems.. I have the LCP and the LCR, both are running at 100% so far. What ever the problem is, I'm sure Ruger will make it right.

    My LC9 could not make it through 2 magazines without failing to eject. Hopefully it will work much better when it comes back from Ruger.

    Send it back, Ruger will make it right. They did for my LCP. I have been reading on several other forums, and the LC9 has had very few problems. One rear site loose, one lite strikes, but many, many happy owners with hundreds of rounds down range with no problems. A good gun, I can hardly wait to get me one!

    No problems here - 1000 downrange, flawlessly. Accurate, comfortable.

    If it was me, I'd do as the others suggest and send it back to the mother ship. They'll make it right or replace it. If a smith gets in there and for what ever reason makes things worse, well, that's it; it'll probably void any manufactures warranty, but I absolutely have no idea if that would be the case.

    That is correct. Dont mess with it, let Ruger do it right, believe me it is worth the wait.

    Had a problem with my SP101, sent it to Ruger and had it back fixed and ready to go in ten days! Send it back--- DO NOT GO TO A GUNSMITH UNLESS you want to spend needless $$$$$ !!

    I can usually shoot inside the 10 ring with my XDm 9mm. However, with the LC9 I can not hit the target at all at 10yds. I got a CT laser LG-412 and will be trying to discover the problem this weekend at the range. Maybe my sights are off, or more probably, the crappy trigger is throwing me off?
