    Anyone other than me bothered with the "gap" between the bottom of the Adapter and the floor plate of the 17R Mag in the Compact version?
    Most responses I get are "it's normal, accept it" or "live with it". I've even written to the CEO at Ruger a week ago along with pictures but no response yet. For those like me who are bothered with this "gap" and don't want to "live with it", I have a resolution. Not a great one, but it works. The magazine engages and drops out normally and still leaves enough of a "microgap" to satisfy those who say "the gap is part of the design. If it wasn't needed, Ruger wouldn't have designed it that way". Besides, the 17R magazine adapter wiggled a wee bit in my hand with the 17R magazine engaged. And this fixed both issues for me.
    Thanks
