Have had one for about 6-8 months about 4000 rounds through it. Range report; 0 FTF, 0 stopages, 1.5" 25 yard groups. The only gun is my safe that does not have any modifications. Great Pistol!!!

I had a P90 but had to part with it for financial reasons. DUMB

It was a love/hate relationship: I loved the accuracy and maintenance, but hated the trigger and trying to find a decent holster.

Probibly the worst feature for me was the strange looks folks at the Friday matches gave me. "Eweeiuw... that's not a 1911!"

Come to think of it, I think I'll see if that guy wants to sell it back to me.

WEWEBB - Sorry for the off topic. But I will be moving to the Everett area next spring. Where do you do your Friday night shoots? When I am in port I would like to do some formal shooting.

I have now shot 650 rounds through my P97D and have had no FTF and it groups less than 3 inches at 40 feet.The trigger is awesume ,both single and double action.Only thing not stock is a Get Agrip on the handle.Not bad for $309.00.It`s a little ugly but who cares with groups like that.

Would it be possible to use 1911 magazines in the P97 if they had an extra cut for the Ruger's magazine latch?

I paid too much for my 97D when they first came out: $368. Live and learn. I like the idea that there are rebates now. I shall go out and buy a few more. I love these ugly beater guns. They are accurate enough for combat shppting (I mean who shoots half inch clusters in a life/death situation with point-shooting?). I like the slim grips, the thin profile, and the reasonably flat slide for a 45. Great buy. The DAO is not bad, either. Long trigger travel, but that is no worse than a Beretta or SIG DAO.

good for the doller?

I am Thinking about getting my girlfriend one of these 9mm. She enjoys shooting but hates those "ugly" wheel guns. You guys think this would be a good gun?? Would be used as a home gun and a fair amount at the range? model?
