Andrew emailed me photos of his SR9 that he has just got back from Ruger. You can see external changes made.

He got a free cap and two magazines, which is not much considering they had his pistol for 97 days!

Andrew posted this comment on the SR9 post:

I just recieved my sr9 back from recall work, ruger had it over 3 months,
I callled over 9 times wanting it back, mine was one that failed and failed hard. I have to say 3 months was making me disaponited that i didn’t wait for the new redesigned xd, but I have to say i took out the redesigned sr9 and the trigger pull is improved and it shots like a dream, also mag release is sweet. first 200 no misfires and great hold on target as always . Next step is to get xs 24/7 to make sights for us

Thanks Andrew for your time.

    I actually just bought my Ruger SR9 3 days ago from a pawn shop. It had barely been used at all, and it is mint condition. I did not know about the recall until yesterday. I took it out to the range and tried it out with some Blazer 115 gr. ammo. I had 5 jams going through two of the hi-cap mags! I don't know if it was the ammo or what, but it's safe to say I was pretty ticked about it.

    Possibly today I should be sending it back for the recall so it can be retrofitted with the new trigger safety.

    five months ago i purchased two ruger semi autos from a gun dealer in tyler texas. One was the older p95 for $360 the other is the sr9 for $460 total with tax was $861 i think i got a great deal on two great guns. i carry the p95 with me almost everywhere and shoot it regularly love it can shoot great with it no jam ups or malfunctions this gun is more of a smooth shooter than the sr9. My girlfriend carries the sr9 she likes it but i sometimes wonder about her safety with it being a striker fired pistol.
