Hey.......nice gun.......I have one that is about 2 years old and I have a question. On page 14 (I think) of my owners manual Ruger says "not to use hyper ammo". If your gun is newer have they done something to ....shall we say make a better gun ?
After e-mailing Ruger about this issue they told me "hyper" ammo is not recommended and use it at my own descretion. So I use "high" velocity and "regular" but not "stingers", yellow jackets" and the like.
Please look at your owners manual and let me know if this is changed. I have spoken to more than one gunsmith and they have all told me they use "hyper" and see no problem after several thousand rounds. I have stopped using "hyper" and see no need to but I have so much of it and I have no "closed breach" guns to shoot it through.
If you want the magazines to drop free, parts are available from Brownells to replace the offending parts required for the disconnect. The cost is about $50 (Thanks Ruger!) and 15 minutes of your time. Not only does the mod allow the mags to drop free, the trigger pull is significantly improved as well.
