Has anyone heard of this happening? I took my LCP out to the range this past Thursday (9-19) and had fired 3 magazines and when I went to reload, I noted that the takedown pin had sheared off leaving the "shaft" in the gun and nothing for me to grab onto in order to remove and replace it. The total round count is approx. 620 rounds since new. After much cursing and rending of garments, I contacted Ruger and explained the problem to them and they told me to return the gun to them and that they'd pay the shipping and any costs associated with the repair. I sent it off on Monday via FedEx and they sent me an email today stating that the repair was complete and it was ready to be shipped back. I`m guessing that this takedown pin had a weak spot in it and after the 620 rounds , it finally broke off. As you can see, only the head of the pin sheared off leaving the shaft intact. I`d never heard of this happening before and just chalked it up to "...stuff happens sometimes..." Kudos to Ruger for standing behind their product since it`s 8 years old with a fairly high round count! Anyone else heard of this happening?
