Get the sronger hammer spring made by Wolff Springs, available from Brownell's. It's only a few bucks. It will completely solve the problem for U. S. boxer primed 7.62X39. It will improve misfires in Berdan primed ammo: Wolf, Barnaul, etc. There will always be about 1 out of 15 misfires with the Berdan primed ammo, until Ruger starts giving a ****.
Let's ALL flood Ruger with phone calls and letters until they give us an option for a stronger mil-spec firing pin setup. It's YOU & ME that line their pockets. It's time they started listening and acting on it like they USED to years ago.
ALSO, lobby for AT LEAST a 10 round .223 and.30 magazine.
PLEASE DO IT TODAY!!!! Stamps are cheap!!!!

How many rounds have you put through your rifle? I bought mine used and have fired about 350 myself. I've used mostly Wolf ammo and some US stuff no problems yet. I will be backing off Wolf (see my Wolf Ammo Thread). My Mini-30 was made in late 1999, I called and checked.

I wonder is it a few rifles here and there or is it most of them and your lucky if you get one without problems.:(

I guess I will have to wait and see. I would join the letter campaign though.
