    HELP!
    Just got a new Ruger P95 this last week. One session shooting about 100 rds of WWB.
    Had it home and dry firing on a spent cartridge with no mag in place.
    Now the mags won't go in. They insert all but last inch or so. Looks like the ejector is interferring with mag right at the ejectors pivot point. What gives???

    You have the ejector pivoted down.

    Pivot it back up.


    from http://www.ruger.com/Firearms/PDF/InstructionManuals/59.pdf
    TO REASSEMBLE
    1. BE CERTAIN CHAMBER AND MAGAZINE ARE EMPTY.
    2. With slide held upside down, replace barrel and push it rearward into its
    locked position.
    3. Replace camblock and recoil spring assembly into position. Rear end of camblock
    seats against barrel lug.
    4. Be certain that ejector is locked in its lower (forward) position and that
    hammer is in its fired (uncocked) position.
    5. Replace slide onto frame. Partially insert slide stop into frame.
    6. Pull slide back until disassembly line on frame is aligned with disassembly
    line on slide stop. Now push slide stop all the way through the frame to the
    right.
    7. Allow slide to move fully forward.
    8. Replace empty magazine in frame through butt of pistol. This action
    returns the ejector to its working position. This pistol will not function
    normally unless the ejector is in its upward (rearward) position

    Are you still unable to insert the magazine?

    Mags will not go in, due to apparent interference at the pivot point of ejector.
    Other than that, gun seems to have all of it's functions working. Slide works. Cocks/decocks as it should. Can field strip and reassemble with no problems.Trigger works smoothly, just the damn magazines won't go in :banghead:

    Call Ruger at (928)-778-6555, ask for product support and see what they have to say.

    A call to Ruger, and a quick call back from a service tech resolved the problem (all of 10 min. total). The hammer pivot pin had "walked out". Pushed it back in, flush to the frame PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)

    Ruger Service is GREAT!!!!!;)

    I figured it would be something minor.

    Now you need to figure out why your hammer pivot pin is "walking out."

    I sure would hate to have the pin "walk out" on me at the wrong time.

    a little dab of lock tite might do it. just be careful not to use too much.

    that's strange...I've had my P95 (old version) since 2005 (as soon as the awb sunset) and I've shot thousands of rounds though it and never had it happen... as stated, probably a dab (use very sparingly...you can always add more later but can never take it back out ;) ) will hold it good :)

    This was very easily visable (if you knew what to look for) as the end of the pin is an oblong piece that sets flush in a mating recess on the right side of the frame directly below the decocker pivot point. It had come out of the recess maybe 1/16", but clearly NOT flush.

    The tech gave a reason why it did this, I just wasn't listening real well.:eek:
