    Title says it pretty much.

    Is there a fix for this? It doesn't open far enough to stop the gun, but it's not good in my eyes.

    Thanks!

    On the old type Rugers, you could put in a new spring, but that is not an option on the new ones. You can call Ruger for suggestions/advice, but one way to fix the problem would be to reduce your loads. Some folks think that Rugers are so strong nothing can damage them. Not true, and that loading gate may be trying to tell you something.

    I see Old Fuff gave you the help you needed.
