The slide assembly keeps coming-off just from dry racking.
The firing pin assembly then separates from slide.
Notice that slide keeps coming out of the groove.

Can it be bent? Any way to check it? Someone have a used stainless bar for sale? I doubt that the receiver is the culprit.

Thanks

Do you have a metal liner in the front channel of the stock? That liner guides the front part of the operating rod.

I'd send it back to Ruger to deal with.

Looks like the op rod isn't fully seated in the receiver channel to me.

Ruger has a video on YouTube about reassembling the Mini -- it's actually really helpful.

Is that photo the way it looks AFTER it falls out, or how it looks all the time? COBrian makes me think I overlooked the obvious. If that's how it looks all the time then you never actually got it on properly.

Thanks

Thanks guys. The picture was AFTER it came out.

I have decided that it is "pilot error". I have been racking it back too far and into the "notched area" which is there for removal. I see absolutely no wear in the groove, however, I might buy a new firing pin assembly just for curiosity.
