Well, I finally received word back. They don't approve of the modification to make their firearm safe and reliable. If you are looking to use one of these carbines for USPSA/Steel Challenge etc. Good luck! They are unable to remedy this issue at the factory and they can only offer you more magazines for your time wasted and match fees down the drain. Great for a range toy, competition I would pass onto something reliable if you are going to attend major matches and wish to be a serious competitor.

I shot mine at a knockdown match and had no issues, ran like a champ and did really well.  Sorry to hear that yours had such problems.

Who is they? is it Ruger or USPSA?

For the guy asking about 3 gun matches with short distances, I don't think he's used this for 3gun, just USPSA and steel, which are both relatively short distances (~30yds max).

I zeroed my red dot in this weekend and was able to hit paper plates at 100 bagged. No issues, but forgot to try the torque thing again. I ran it in USPSA a couple weeks ago and only had minor shooter imposed issues.

Great match results BTW!

They being Ruger. It really sucks because I do well with it, so many people ask to check it out etc. I can only let them know it was not reliable for me enough to recommend it for competition. It's not just a bad batch either, since I am able to do it with every carbine I've handled so far (3 now). I'm still going to use mine until I feel like the lack of proper pistol grip and short under barrel hand guard effect my results. I'm a thumbs over shooter on my AR platform so I've got my thumb a little warm a few times ha.
