My first carry gun was an SR9c. I loved it, but the holster selection was (at the time) fairly limited and I wasn't happy that the slide lock wasn't also a slide release. Holster selection is certainly better now, has anyone found a way to replace the slide lock with a slide release? I didn't like having to use two hands to chamber a round with the slide locked back.

My SR9c is difficult to release from slide lock also, so I am interested to hear what others say. I can do it, but not quickly. It is easier to use the support hand now.

Mine was literally unreleasable with the lock. I smithed the slide catch very carefully until I got it right.

I searched for one for my SR40, didn't have any luck. I did a light polish on it, and just wear from using the gun it eventually has gotten to the point of releasing the slide from lock. I got use to racking it to release it and still do that now because it has been engrained into my manual of arms for the SR.

I also found if I insert the new mag extra hard it releases by itself quite often.

If you will read your guns instruction manual, I know real men don't read the instructions, you will see that Ruger didn't design the slide lock to release the slide for a reload.!:confused:

Ruger says load via slingshot method.

As grandpa used to say "do as you please, cause you will anyway":cryinglaugh:

Enjoy your Ruger pistol:D

Funny my lc9 was the same way but has worn in to release with the slide stop, of course I read the manual and I didn't catch anything saying that it was not designed that way, but of course they are two diffrent firearms so who knows
