Re: Ruger semi-auto locked open
Thank-you All for your comments...I have discovered the culprit. I looked into the lifter mechanism. What I discovered was the lifter latch has a pin other than the hinge pin that keeps the lifter from moving until you depress the lifter latch to load it or the gun fires.
This pin had slid all the way to one side keeping the lifter from operating (couldn't feed next shell). The gun thought it was in the "last round mode". It appears to be a simple fix if I can tighten the pin in the lifter latch......any suggestions?
