The pistol when the slide is manually pulled back will not lock back on an empty Mag. Is this a

At the very least I would run a bore snake through the barrel. That way you know there is nothing in there and the nice part you don't have to take the gun down.The Max has arrived at my FFL but my schedule this week is too full to pick it up. I've arranged to get it Saturday, and since my FFL is an indoor range, I'll see about booking some time to test it out. Usually I like to clean a gun first, but I may make an exception this time (although once I look at it I might change my mind - Ruger is known to use a lot of grease on the guns).
I may be different than many other folks: If the gun isn't right, I have no problems (based on prior experience) sending it to Ruger for correction. I have other guns in my carry rotation, so I won't feel put out if I have to wait a bit on adding the Max to it.
