    After i lim done shooting, I have to pry the casings out of the cylinder, I have only put 25 rounds through it if I push the extractor sometimes it will push them out.
    Thanks

    [I think you are supposed to do the introduction thing first, but anyway...]

    Lets assume that you are using standard factory ammo.

    Have you cleaned and dried the chambers? If so, and the cases are sticking, I am out of suggestions. (Hah, that didn't take long, eh?) I am sure that useful suggestions are on the way. Welcome to RT.

    If you have an LC9 you don't have a cylinder, do you mean you have to pry it from the chamber?

    Have you properly completed a detail cleaning of the slide and components?

    Check the chamber of the barrel for any debris, burrs, etc.

    Try a different brand of ammo and stay away from steel shells (leaves a lacquer film behind sometimes)

    I'm not real familiar with shooting 9mm out of a revolver, but maybe the ejector is not contacting the moon clip correctly? Or the clip is bent somehow? I'd inspect it closely next time you snap the cartridges into it. Other than that I can't be much help, sorry.

    Clean the cylinder really good. Use a bore brush to get any residue out especially at the shell casing stop. If the shells go in easy, they should come out easy. If that doesn't help call Ruger Customer Service.
    I meant a chamber brush so you have the larger diameter to clean the forward lip of the cartridge stop.

    I agree with cleaning the gun real good including the cylinder chambers. Have you done this yet?

    Love it when people never get back if a problem has been fixed or not.

    If you're using handloads, sticky or difficult extraction is a sign of excessive pressure. If it's factory anmo, I'd scrub the Chambers of the cylinder with a slight oversized bore brush, I like the one for .40 or sometimes .45.
    The one for .45 does bend the bristles a little bit but not to badly. Also, check and see if the cases are clean.....

    When all else fails, read the manual. Download from Storm Ruger site...moon clip must be used to load the LCR9, if you do not use the moon clip, you might have to pry or manually pull the shell casings from the cylinder. The ejector will not eject without the moon clip.

    Any bets?

    Looks like one of those 1 post memberships. Probably cleaned the gun - better late than never - and the problem went away. Embarrassed maybe.
