    ***Just noticed i forgot the e in magazine on the title but i can go back and change that whoops :0***

    So i just bought an SR40c and i took it to the range for the first time yesterday and shot about 200 rounds through it, i know i shot 190, i let a employee at the range shoot it because he wanted to know how much it would kick so i was happy to help, but im not sure if he shot 5 or 10 rounds, i dont remember, he used his own ammo.

    Anyways as you know the gun comes with 2 magazines and with the smaller magazine the gun kept failing to feed on the final round. The gun would lock back like it was empty so i would eject the mag and notice there was a bullet in the mag still but it was sticking up in a weird way.

    After i got home i started looking around and i noticed 2 scratches or gouges on the clip where the bullet rests. Could this cause the issue? If so i guess i got a bad magazine, like i said before it didn't do it with the other mag and it did it with all 4 types of ammo is hot. 2 FMJ and 2 JHP.

    Here are a few pictures i took

    Got a Dremel?

    I would polish the scratch down a bit and see if that works.

    Well I contacted ruger and they said they would send me a new mag with a shipping label to return the messed up one. So either way I'm happy they are sending me a new mag first so I'm not a mag short while sending the messed up one back. First enouncter with ruger support is a positive one. I Hope it stays that way and i hope the mag is the issue

    And that is why I like Rugers, they stand behind what they produce.
