Sounds like a problem with the magazine release.
Ask, I think they'll send you a UPS shipping label. You don't want to be paying shipping, if you can avoid it. Paying shipping once, on an inexpensive gun, is a fair percentage of your original purchase price. (Handguns need to go next day, and be shipped from a UPS office, not a "shipping store".)
I called Ruger gave them the serial number. They told me no problem, no charge to fix it.
Ruger is well known for covering their stuff well. This despite the fact that they deliberately have no written warranty on their guns.
