I had this name since 1796.
 
Thinking either this one:

or this one:

http://www.ruger-firearms.com/Firear...es&type=Pistol

Dang, both are way over budget though :-/

Pics? I think it'd be interesting to send it back and get their opinion on it and see if they think it was the ammo or the gun. The design of it doesn't let it fire out of battery I don't believe.

Can you order online?
Even if you could shipping charges and transfer fees at your local dealer would eat up a bunch of money. Go visit some local gun stores. You should be able to find one cheap locally.

Sure thing, here... I don't know what out of battery means though, sorry.

(click for huge)








First pic is the last bullet it fired -- the one it popped on. Second pic is the slide with firing pin. I'm not sure if you can see it but the firing pin is jammed in there. I misremembered what happened and nothing is actually broken except for the slide where the firing pin is inserted, it's kind of... bulgy?

Out of battery would mean that the bolt was not fully closed. From that pic I'd blame the ammo and say it was over pressure but I'm not familiar enough with .22 failures to say for sure how they'd go.... S&W has good service though, they'll send you a prepaid shipping label and you can just drop it off at the UPS depot. I don't know if I'd include that pic or not

Just goes to show any gun can KB. I agree the problem with this one is ammo. What brand of ammo was it?

Just standard velocity Remington .22LR. I'd shot a couple bricks of it previously so not sure what happened there... thanks for the replies, I'm looking forward to getting a new one back from S&W

Since you are mostly interested in plinking. I'd strongly recommend a revolver over an automatic.
Rimfire rounds are so dirty. Especially 22wmr. And yes I am speaking from extensive personal experience.

Cool. Best of luck.

Love my 22 Automag. Hate how damn dirty it gets after just a few magazines. Which is why I use
revolvers for plinking fun now.

Given the ammo seems to be fault I think the responsilbity of fixing your gun should really fall on Remington and S&W would be right to tell you that but I'd be surprised if they didn't just fix you up.
