Ruger semi-auto locked open
Hello and hope someone can help.
I have an early .44 mag. Ruger carbine. It is in super shape but the slide locked open when I shot it. It wasn't the last round. I managed to get it taken down and freed the slide so it worked. I didn't bend or pry anything.
I pulled the slide open and it locked open again. It will not go shut when I depress the under button. I believe I was using pistol ammo in this older version. Is this repairable by a gunsmith?
I already know the factory no longer has parts per inquiry with Ruger customer service.
