Quote:
Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the "safe" and "fire" positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the "fire" position, the pistol may fire at that time.

Sounds like a freak occurrence sort of thing but I guess it's best to be safe

This is cool of them:

Quote:
We understand this is an inconvenience, so when we return the grip frame assembly to you, we will give you an extra magazine, free of charge. That’s a $29.95 value. For customers in states with magazine shipping restrictions, we will send you a ShopRuger.com gift certificate in lieu of the magazine.

Yeah, when I sent my P85 in for recall work (roughly 30 years after I bought it), they sent me a prepaid shipping box, and sent it back with an extra magazine for my trouble.

And here I was just today, bragging that I picked up my new 22/45 yesterday. Doubt mine was made after the first. Thanks for the post. Guess I'll be sending it back and getting a new mag.
