Ruger P85

Would i be weird to say that i actually like my ruger p85? I have a sig p220 and even thought i know that the p85 probably costs 1/4 of the price of the sig, it has really visible sights, and i just really like it. Does anybody else agree with me or not?

I have a Sig 228, a few 1911's, a few J-frame revolvers and 2 Glocks but the gun next to the bed is a P85 because it is the most reliable handgun I own. Reliability was determined by many thousand rounds of factory and reloads in all the guns.

The P-85 is big and clunky and not as accurate compared to my 1911's but I know it will fire a full magazine anytime I need it to.

I prefer 1911's, but I bought a never been fired, in the box P-89 a few years ago (pretty much the same as the 85's) from a private party.....this thing has had over 3000 rounds through it without a hickup.........clean....dirty doesn't's a little bulky for CCW, but damn reliable and a great plinker :wink:

happy shootin' Jeff P

I have a P-85 my wife bought me in 1990. I have stopped counting at the 13,000 mark with was in 1999. Since then I have continued to fire the pistol on a very regular basis. The only thing I have ever done to this pistol is replace all the mag springs and the recoil springs with a wolfe spring kit.
