I did a long journal/review with my SR9c, ending a few hundred rounds ago.

Yes. From the net chatter I've read, light strikes seems to be the biggest bugaboo in SOME units of this series, in both 9 and .40... It's kinda mysterious... A lot of hi-round-count owners report excellent reliability with no problems.

From what I've read, most owners whose units eventually developed the light-strike problem, and who sent them in to Ruger CS, have been generally satisfied that the problem was taken care of. Exactly WHAT Ruger CS is doing to them, I don't know.
One of the first things I did was clean my SR40. I removed the striker and found the channel filled with grease! I gave it a good cleaning but I never had an issue with light strikes.
I think Ruger packs the firing pin (striker?) with grease from the factory. It becomes very easy to get all gunked up and I think that might be the cause for the light strikes.
Just thought I would pass that info along.

Thanks for that linK RBid... there're some interesting tidbits in there.

David... Yeah it's good you brought up the cleaning aspect... I've seen other references on the net about gunk in the striker channel.

With mine, however, a good cleanout didn't solve my light strike problem... Installing a stronger spring did.

Thanks again guys for all the advice and help. I am gonna pick up the Stainless SR9c tomorrow. If the FNS-9, wasnt 200 more I think I would have gone that route. But I know this wont be the last purchase, so who knows.

Sounds good... I much prefer the SR's w/ stainless slide. Another aspect I really like about this line is the smallness of their tabs... means a lot when carrying.

CW I like your .40 too, it was tough call between the two. But for my first, I think the cheaper ammo cost and getting the wife involved will be a bonus(and a reason to get the .40 later LOL!)
