Ruger P-94 Cartridge Ejection Hang-Ups

For the second time in as many target trips, my Ruger P-94 .40 cal. jammed---twice this trip.



The spent cartridge did not eject fully leaving the slide open with the cartridge hung up and half way out sitting on top of the fresh cartridge in the magazine. Federal ammo, purchased 6 months or so agao and the mag was about half-way emptied both times.



These jams are a recent event. Previous uses (8 or more) were uneventful. I've taken it apart, cleaned and lubricated and there's no obvious damage or problems I could find.



Does anyone have any thoughts, similar experiences and more importantly, remedies (short of the potentially expensive trip to the gunsmith but that remains my obvious fall back position) or suggestions on what to look for and do to fix this problem?



Great weapon, shoots well otherwise, feels good, looks great but obviously, I can't have a weapon that isn't virtually 100% reliable 100% of the time.



Thanks
