I've not shot the 95 but I have the 'father'...the P85.
I enjoy shooting it though I can't say it's my most accurate 9MM and I believe the slight lack of accuracy is due to the overstuffed grips I have on it right now. Although my hands are fairly large my fingers are somewhat shorter than I'd like. So, with the current grips I can just barely get my fingertip on the trigger.
It's a stout gun and the only thing I've had to do was have the slide guide pin replaced when Ruger issued the recall way back when.
In short, if the 95 is anything like the 85 you've got a superb gun. Have fun......shoot straight......safety first.
Appreciate the comments. Waiting for this weekend to take a run out to Pike National Forrest and try it out. Yes NRA Joe ...it is a blued version.
Checked the Ruger website and the serial number is listed as manufactured in 1998.
Previous owner(s) must of rarely fired it as I cannot find even normal wear for a gun that old.
I liked this firearm so much I sold it to my brother. Liked it but sold it you ask? My brother owns one handgun for household defense. I trust this firearm to protect my brother. We liked the fact it was a decocker without an additional safety. You simply point and pull the trigger. Nothing to remember under stress. Local Fort Carson soldiers are buying it for that exact reason to take to Iraq.
Yes it was blued.
Brother really likes it. Takes it out every weekend to practise. Thats another thing great about that gun....9mm cheap ammo.
Little does he know he is hooked. Bet he buys another handgun within a few months.
Bet its a 45acp too.
hehe....been there done that.
Bet you have too.
Same thoughts. The P95DC was my first handgun. I always loved it, it was always cheap to shoot, and it worked EVERY time. Never thought I'd find anything I liked enough to make me sell it, then I took my CZ85 to the range the first day. I miss it though...I'll probably end up buying another....or maybe a P94.
It's the only 9mm I own. Have had it for a number of years, blued version, and I think it's a great auto. Seems to shoot any ammo I run through. For me it is a natural pointer, sights line up very quickly with my aged eyes. I believe it is probably the best buy in a 9mm out there.
I have a P95DC that I purchased in 2000 and I love it. I don't get to shoot it as much as I would like - I would estimate that I have only put about 800 or so rounds thru it. My question is this: How many rounds can I expect to put thru it before it needs something more than routine cleaning? and what signs should I look for that it needs something more than that? I clean it well after each time I fire it, and normally put 50 or 100 rounds thru it per range visit.
