ruger recalls

I'll start off by saying that I like ruger. They have always made affordable and reliable guns. I have owned 4 different rugers before and never had a problem with any of them.

They have however, had a couple recalls on their newer auto pistols lately. It started out with the SR-9 last May. They were having issues with the gun discharging when dropped with a round in the chamber. They are currently still excepting guns replacing parts related to that recall which included 30,000+ SR-9's.

Now it seems they are having the same issue with the LCP .380.

Does anyone own a SR-9 or LCP that is effected by the recall? Any thoughts or comments?

I know all new guns have their own kinks that they work through... but this is pretty basic stuff and seems to be a trend with their newer lines of autos. most fairly new auto pistols have an internal firing pin safety.

LCP

I recently bought an LCP it was one that was effective by the recall.
Personally I think any auto can go off if a round is chambered and it is dropped and hits on the back of the slide.
I will say my gun works real well with all ammo so far no jams or mis fires.
With this said I will probably send mine in and have it upgrade, only because they put in a new hammer system, a auto lock open after the last shot,and they send you a new finger extension mag for your efforts. Which lists on their sight for about 32 bucks.
Sounds like a win win situation to me.

All in all there are a lot of idiots handling guns out there, the object is to keep the gun in hand. Not dropped on the ground!!
