    Ruger Ec9s

    When firing my Ec9s this weekend I notived Thant when the slide locked back, the guide rod would be pointed slightly up. It would snap back down straight easily and didn’t seem to have any issues firing it. Just thought it odd. Anybody ever had this happen?

    Completely normal.

    It does the same exact thing on my brother's LC9s and my LCP. (In case you don't know, the LC9s is just a more expensive version of the EC9s and the LCP is basically the smaller .380 predecessor to the LC9.)

    Yeah. Knew they were. Hence why I bought the Ec9s as it was >150 cheaper. First tiger owned tho so wasn’t sure if it was normal or not. Shot well. With no FTE OR FTF using hornady critical defense as well as Winchester hollow point and Remington green box ammo.

    Yup. My LC9s does it too. Great little gun if it fits your hand well. Sadly, mine doesn't. It's the only pistol I have that I find painful to shoot. I do still carry it now and then. If I ever had to use it in an emergency, a sore hand would be the least of my problems.

    When I first got into semis the barrel and guide rod being out of alignment at lock scared the hell outta me. That’s why I read like hell. I’ve learned more about mechanical engineering with a gun hobby than I ever did before guns.

    Look at a super slo-mo video of a polymer pistol firing and the amount of wobble the polymer exhibits eating recoil will leave you wondering how the gun didn’t explode in your hands.

    You find the LC9s painful to shoot? No problem. All you need to do is toughen your hand up. Buy a Ruger LCR .357 and shoot it on a regular basis. Or shoot it as a warm up before you get to the LC9s. The LC9s will feel like a baby canary fluttering around in your hand after the LCR. You'll experience a new definition of pain with the LCR .357. (not so much at all with .38 special or +P)

    On many semi-auto pistols, the barrel tilts back at the end of the rearward motion of the slide, to enable the next round to be chambered more easily. On a 1911, the barrel link, which attached the barrel at the rear with a pin, swivels. Other designs use a kidney shaped cutout. On the Ruger, when the barrel tilts the guide rod is slightly angled as well.
