Ruger P90, Decock Version!

Hi Ruger Friends,

I've been trying to locate a Ruger P90 the decock version, to no avail. The " safety " versions are easier to find.

Does any one know if the " decock " version is still being produce???? Why should we prefer it to the " safety " version????

Thanks!

I have one of each,Safety and Decocker,The decocker version is better for CCW because it is more like a revolver when you pull he trigger with one in the tube its gonna go.The safety version if it is in or near "Safe" then it will not go boom.If your carrying it for your life it may be better to not have the possibility of a non shot.I carry both of mine when with the safety version I practice flipping the safety on the way up to firing position.Too bad they do not make the decock version...

I had been looking all over the place for a P-89 with a decocker and I guess this explains it . CRAP! I love the P-series with the decocker

Folks like what they like of course but if it's readiness you're concerned about then the safety model is as good as the decock version. When you're ready to holster simply use the safety as a decocker then flip the safety off, holster your weapon and you've got the same double action as the decocker model. Used in this manner it is just as safe and just as quick into action as the decock varient.

Ruger Gang,

Thanks for the input. Not being intimately familiar with the Ruger P90 except on a cursory gunshop fondle, I thought there is something more than meets the eye with the " decocker " version.

DArBad,
I owned a P90 decock for a while. I actually didn't like it. Too big and thick for concealed carry. I soon traded it for a Springfield .45 Compact w/ 4" bbl. That was 17 yrs ago and am still happy.
Good luck w/ your search.

I have the same setup except that I had a safety model and picked up all the "decock only" parts on GB. I prefer the overall look of the "decock only" version; especially in stainless:
