Description

Ruger P85

The Ruger P85 model from the Ruger is an semi-automatic pistol, caliber 9 mm. The Ruger P85 Series is a double action or single action pistol which is chambered with 9mm Luger ammunition. Maximum magazine capacity of the P85 is 15 rounds, what is an average amount compared to many other pistols of the same caliber.

The Ruger P85 was the first model, chambered in 9mm and designed for Joint Service Small Arms Program as the new sidearm for the United States Military. Unfortunately, the design was not fully completed and the weapon was not fully designed until 1987, one year after the program was over and the Beretta M9 had already been selected as the new U.S. Army sidearm. It is thought that if it had been completed, it would have been a strong contender for the contest, since Ruger P-Series pistols have earned a reputation of reliability. It was only available with a DA/SA trigger, decocker, and a manual safety.

Early Ruger P85 pistols were recalled for a safety issue that resulted in one accidental discharge. If the firing pin broke in front of the firing pin block, applying the safety, which dropped the hammer, could transfer enough energy to the broken firing pin to cause a discharge. The P85 was recalled, and a new safety was installed that prevented contact between firing pin and hammer during a decocking operation. This modification was done free of charge. The P85 MKII was released with the safety fix, larger safety levers, improved accuracy, and the option of a stainless steel slide.

Ruger P85 production stopped in 1990, and the P85 MKII was discontinued in 1992, having been fully replaced by the improved P89.
