Ruger issues safety bulletin

If you own a Ruger American Pistol chambered in 9mm, listen up

Ruger has discovered that some Ruger American® Pistols chambered in 9mm may exhibit premature wear of the locking surfaces between the slide and barrel which, if ignored, can result in a crack developing near the ejection port of the slide. This typically does not occur at round counts below 10,000 rounds. The condition is easily identified during routine maintenance and cleaning, and the crack should be visible long before the pistol becomes unsafe to shoot. Ruger is committed to safety and is asking owners of Ruger American® Pistols chambered in 9mm to inspect their pistols for excessive wear or cracks and, if necessary, sign up for this retrofit. View Retrofit PDF

Inspecting your firearms is important, take some extra time when cleaning them to check for unexpected wear. 

I do not own an American Pistol, although it seems like a nice affordable firearm, and Ruger makes great guns. I do own a SR9C which I love. For me the sights, trigger, and my eye and trigger finger work very well together. In fact I need to get that out to the range again soon, I am off work tomorrow, so…………..
