Did Ruger recall the 22/45 pistol

This is a discussion on Did Ruger recall the 22/45 pistol within the Autoloaders forums, part of the Armory category; I have a Ruger 22/45 and it is unreliable, the world's # 1 jam-a-matic. I heard Ruger is recalling these models. Anyone hear this?...

Hadn't heard that but I have the same looking model and haven't had any issues with it. I've probably put almost 6,000 rounds through it and maybe had 10-15 jams mostly related to shooting it suppressed (I had the barrel threaded) with junky ammo.

The factory stock extractor wears out rather quickly and creates a problem with stovepiping, usually after just a couple of thousand rounds or less. Install a Volquartsen extractor and they last ten times as long.

I have a 22/45 Mk 3, about 1,000 rounds through it, it is very reliable, much more reliable than most 22 semi auto pistols, I have gotten rid of the mag safety, that thing is a pain. My only regret is not getting the nicer model with the replaceable grip panels, the cheaper grip is too thin. I've seen the mod where they grind the grip panels down and modify it for replaceable grips, but I'm a little hesitant to go grinding on the plastic frame like that.

I haven't heard about any recall.

Like all 22's it is ammo sensitive, CCI, Federal and Winchester are pretty reliable, Remington is the least reliable, however it is more reliable with Rem 22 than any of my other 22's with the exception of my 10/22, that 10/22 is amazing, it is the most reliable 22 semi auto rifle I've ever seen, it even runs with Remington 22LR 99.5% of the time.

I called ruger and they said they don't warranty a gun over a year old.

I've never heard of a recall for any of the Mk or 22/45 series but I also don't believe Ruger wouldn't make it right. Either you talked to the wrong person or didn't describe your problem properly.

Ruger doesn't have a formal warranty of one year or any time period on their firearms. The do go well out of their way to satisfy their customers so call back and get it straightened out.

BTW, have you tried more than one magazine? Many problems are magazine related.

I have owned a couple of 22/45's and never had any issues. I prefer them over the other 22 because of the grip and control positions, they are close to a 1911.

I have never had any issues with any of them, accurate and reliable.

I agree with others, maybe a bad mag or crappy ammo.

The only reason a company would recall is for a safety issue. They may send out a notice for a factory repair for a specific part, but I don't recall hearing about either one of these related to the 22/45.

I own 3 and they all run great with at least a case (5000 rounds) of ammo thru each one.

Have you tried a different magazine? The vast majority of feed issues are related to the magazine. How old is your gun? Why didn't you talk to Ruger earlier?

The only problem I've experienced with mine is an occasional failure to feed when using low velocity (subsonic speed) ammo. There is no jam, it just doesn't feed a round at all. This occurs on about 20% of the rounds when using that kind of ammo. It's super reliable with standard or high velocity ammo.

The action, barrels, and internal parts are the same as the Ruger Mark series steel frame pistols with a polymer grip and controls similar to the 1911. It has been a reliable platform for years and has very little design changes since the 60's.

Apparently a troll. Looking at his posts, they are mostly to stir up sh*t.

You would think a guy named "gunsmith" would know how to diagnose a feed problem.

The name 'gunsmith' or Wyatt Earp or Sigmund freud are just common names to remember. As for 'stirring up sh*t' - where is the motive? Maybe I work for KelTec, or Jiminez??? But you sound like a 'Ruger Cheerleader' -

AS for a feed problem - that's normally a bad magazine

+1 on replacing the extractor.
Whenever a Ruger Mark I, II, etc., or 10/22 starts misbehaving with jams, replacing the factory extractor has fixed the issue for me.

The factory extractor works, usually, but there are better designs out there from Volquartsen and others.
I have only used the Volquartsen version.
But, I have bought at least a half dozen, so far.

The only other problems I have experienced with Rugers are failure to feed.
This is normally when magazines get too gunked up with bullet lube and powder residue to operate smoothly.
A quick clean out, for the pistol magazines anyway, gets them squared away quickly.

If you still have questions or issues, try RimfireCentral.com.
It's a great site for info, especially on Rugers.
