SR-22 Hammer Springs



Log in to see fewer ads
A frien of mine's daughter bought one of these and it has a problem.

The hammer springs are so stiff that she almost can't operate the slide. Sh certainly vannot operate it reliably.

Any histories of this problem or fixes?

It intergeres with feeding, too.

Thanks

I think you're talking about the recoil spring? The hammer spring doesn't affect slide movement except right at the end of the movement.

Either way - was this a new gun, or a "pre-owned" one that someone may have messed with? If new, give Ruger a call. If second-hand, I'm sure Ruger can supply an as-new spring set. My memory of mine was that it was very easy to rack the slide.

Well, to be honest, I don't have the gun. However, my friend is an experiecedshooter and he describesthe recoil spring as being average and thr hammer pull as being excessive. He states that thr hammer is what is causing the problem.BTW it is a new firearm.

Methinks a call to Ruger is the best starting point, in that case.

Get Ruger customer service to assist with new firearm.
My SR22's do not have any of the issues you attempted to describe here. Easy to rack and no issue with trigger pull(DA or SA). If new call Ruger with issues. Ruger will address any issues you may or may not have. (Clean and lube the SR22. Get some range time to ID any issues.)
