After maybe 1,500 rounds on my SR9, 350 of those in one day the last time I shot it, I noticed this wear on the back of the barrel. Sorry, I don't know exactly how to describe the area, something about a cam I think.

Anyway, can you tell, is this normal wear? It is not just worn so the sandblasted area is worn shiny, you can actually feel that the shape is distorted on those areas.

Recall notwithstanding, this gun has NEVER failed to do exactly what it has been asked. I just want to make sure all the parts are hitting the right places with the right pressures.

eddie, this is my least favorite forum located here: www.rugerforum.com (too many personal attacks)But...........

you can do a search there and there have been some issues coming up concerning peening with the ruger sr9 series. some of it minor, some of it major. this might give you an idea but most of the peening issues were on the barrel chamber edge and the underlug. I would make photos of these marks along with description and your concerns and put them in the box with the gun when it goes back to ruger. ruger should make it right.

I don't consider the wear to be normal but again this is a new design so i don't know whats to expect from it.

Yeah I don't know for sure either. I do know that the LCP shows some weird wear that AZ Outlaw pointed out. It's harmless though. Just looks like crap. :|

This being my first semi-auto, even when I put the barrel back on the frame, I can't really tell what it's hitting and at what point in the cycle it's occurring. So what I don't know is, if it got worse, what would happen? Would it jam? I has never jammed once to this point.

My best guess is that it will only wear to a certain point. I also don't believe it would cause jamming, but I'm far from an expert.

don't have a clue. if the area affects the lock-up, the 1st sign of trouble will probably be erratic accuracy. Perhaps a call to ruger. in the .com board, several make mention of talking to a specific ruger employee (can't remember his name) and able to e-mail this specific employee with pics and questions. That may be a place to start. If it is a problem, at least yours is getting a free ride back to ruger so two birds with one stone deal there.

yeah it's going back when they send me a shipping label, mid-May. I've been trying to reach someone by phone to get an email address to send these pics, but I have a feeling they'll be dealing with so many recalls that throwing this wrench in the works will likely cause big delays. I'll keep you posted.

I finally got through and got the email address of someone who will look at the pictures and let me know.

Good. I'm hoping it's nothing. But on the bright side it's going back anyway. :D

You all know that love my Ruger revolvers, and my MKIII 22/45, but, I have never been empressed enought with a Ruger semi-auto to purchase one. I am probably missing out on some great guns, but just have never cared for the....they are priced really good....who knows what the future might bring.....

Wizard, don't sell the P-series short, and at the rate Ruger is discontinuing guns get them while you can. They are great guns with a proven design (your great grand children will love them). The SR9 is new, and that's the bad part about new guns, there are going to be some hick-ups. On the bright side, I'm SURE Ruger will make this right. I have had nothing but great service from these folks.
