I wasn't all that crazy about the reviews I read about the magazines falling out. Anybody heard of these issues or any other issues?

I really liked the trigger pull on it considering the trigger pull on the older LC9 is a lot stiffer. Plus I liked how the slide safety was. If I do pursue this pistol as a conceal carry, I don't want the mags falling out....lol.

The mags on mine don't fall out. Initially seating the mag took a serious push. This may be what you are actually seeing.

How many rounds have you put through yours? From what I read it was only after 100 rounds or so is when these people stated issues with the magazines falling out.

See, this is what my initial thought was too.

I've never shot one, I've only handled one in a store. Even with my beretta Px4, it takes a considerable "slap" to seat the mag. Unless it was the extended mag tho, I ended up having to cut a loop out of the spring because loading it in the gun with the slide forward took one hell of a slap to seat it. Now it seats just the same as the regular mag.

Many hundreds of rounds through mine with no mag drop issues. I even polished up the burr on the mag catch to make the release smoother and still no issues other than the mage release button rusting out every week. Maybe that's the trick...

It was the LC9 not the LC9s that the mags was falling out. I had both the LC9 and the LC9s. The LC9 was hammer fire and the LC9s is striker hence the "s" on the LC9s. I had the LC9 for about a month and after several mags from Ruger they sent me a return label for the pistol. Then 2 weeks later I got a call and they ask if I would take the LC9s as a replacement and I did and loved the gun. Keep it and ran about 600 rounds thru it before I sold it and another pistol to buy a Ruger SP101 2 1/4 .357 for home and hunting backup.

That's certainly good to hear. Maybe it was the LC9 and not the S I read that had the issues.

I am seriously considering either the LC9s or even the SC9 or 40 for conceal carry if my big PX4 doesn't work out for conceal carry.

I had an original LC9 and never had an issue with magazines falling out.

I had a problem with the mags in my LC9S releasing on there own. I had numerous instances of the mag releasing but i never had a mag "falling out" of the mag well. This would happen in an OWB holster, an IWB holster, and a pocket holster. It was bad enough that I lost confidence in as a defensive handgun. I stopped carrying it and contacted Ruger customer service. It was a known issue to them. I had a RMA emailed to me that day and returned it to Ruger the next day. They replaced the mag release and the grip frame. It has been flawless since then and has returned to my carry rotation. I immediately noticed that the mag had a lot less play/slop in than before. I had the pistol back in 8 days from when I shipped it to them. I suspect that problem has been corrected in the manufacturing process now.

LC9s, mags releasing on their own just like thumper, Ruger replaced mag release and spring. It was a known problem on the LC9s also. No issues since, I also ditched the pinky extensions on the mags.

I have ran 100 124gr Gold Dot +p. never burped so she loves GD's

The only magazine issue I have personally experienced with the LC9 platform is a magazine splitting on the back end after 10K+ rounds. It has proven itself as a very reliable gun so far. The gun mentioned above was a rental gun at a local gun range I used to work at and maintained the rental guns.

Thanks for the replies guys. If my big Beretta or even the baby beretta don't work out for conceal carry due to width I will definitely be considering the LC9s.

I just purchased a Ruger LC9S the barrel and slide are loose and the slide locks in the open ( back) position. It will not close with the mag in it and can’t squeeze the trigger either. Any ideas my hubby and I are at our wits end. We are not first timers.

Empty mag inserted? Drop the mag and pull the slide and see what happens. Is the takedown pin in place correctly? Is this the PRO model? (With no safety lever). Models with the safety will not allow trigger press unless the mag is fully seated. Pro models will function 100% without the mag installed, empty or otherwise. Post pics?

I have both the LC9 and the LC9s. The trigger pull on the LC9s is improved. I have around 1,200 rounds through it with no problems.

so Ruger discontinued the LC9s and kept the budget model EC9 that cost $200? Gee Ruger, some of us will actually spend a few extra bucks for a nice gun. What are they thinking?
