Ruger 22/45 trigger "sting"

I get a little trigger "sting" or "slap" on my last shot from the magazine (from my Ruger 22/45). It has a different feel from the other 9 shots.
Has anyone else had this? Is there a fix?

I'm thrown by this too...I think we need a better description. I've had some pistols that pinch a little bit, and my Makarov used to slap me with the trigger guard during recoil, but I'm having trouble understanding how a .22 is stinging, and only on the last round?

as far as I can tell it is where something hits the trigger causing it to jump forward and "slap" your finger painfully.

I've heard of that. And I completely forgot what the fix was.


Maybe put a piece of felt 'don't scratch the floor furniture pad' under the trigger to eliminate overtravel for starters?? But I can't remember if that was part of the trigger slap issue or not.

Wow, I told my friend that his CZ 82 did that to me. He aid I was crazy. I shot one magazine & it actually made my finger tender for a few days. I'd like to know what causes it, too.

All autoloaders that lock the bolt or slide on the last round have a different feel on that one. It's because the bolt/slide doesn't return to battery. Whether or not it's related to the sting that you get...I dunno.

Wow, I remember that! Had two 22/45's, both did it. I completely forgot about that.

Kind of a...snap off the last round.

I have owned a 22/45 for over 10 years. Never did that to me.

How common is this? Old or recent?

There is definitely a different feel to the last shot since the slide stays back, but I have never experienced a "sting" in the trigger.
