The P85-89-90 series is not popular here in Canada. Which is a good thing because I got my P89 and 90 really cheap and I just love them. Utterly reliable and good accuracy, decent ergonomics (I really prefer the ergos of single stack 1911s but my P pistols fit just fine). What more can one ask of his handgun?

They say you can throw a Glock in the mud, pick it up and shoot it. I think I could throw my KP90 in the mud, run over it with a truck and THEN pick it up and shoot it. It's to big and heavy for me for a carry gun. Car gun and HD and love it at the range. It WILL BE the last gun I get rid of.

BTW, well over 1000 rounds and NO malfunctions of any kind.

Thanks for all the advice. I just bought a new P90 off gunbroker.com. Should have it in a week or so. Anxious to shoot it. It will be my new truck gun.

I've gotta be honest, I used to think the P90/89/85 was the uglyest thing ever. It just didn't "look right" until the day I picked up a P89 and started at some plates. Very fun and oddly enough, a comfortable gun. I like the P90 too, but with the price of .45, maybe a 89 is the way to go.

I was asking

"Do all the P series guns have the exposed hammer /safety and decocker

Yes the P-series do all have an exposed hammer,that is one of the reasons I got mine.All of the no hammer guns are DAO.

i love my p90, and i have fired a friends p345. both great guns but i like the aluminum frame and overall feel of the p90 ten fold over the p345. as for the decocker/safety, most the p-series models changed slightly over their respective manufacturing periods.(some early models just had a safety, no decoker, if im not mistaken) ruger's home site has a serial number decoder that will give you more info on any particular pistol.

No regrets here. I spent a couple of hundred rounds at the range and it fired perfect yesterday. Plenty accurate. I like 1911 style pistols and the P90 feels like one. Very pleased.

lanyard ring

love my P90dc, but i have 1 pet peeve. I HATE the lanyard ring!! being that I'm not a Mountie, I don't foresee ever using it, and it makes the gun just that much harder to conceal. does anyone know if the ring is removable??

Yes. It is the hammer spring seat. You can order a regular hammer spring seat, and exchange them.

Mine doesn't have a lanyard ring. Update on shooting it. Several hundred more rounds including my first experimental re- loads, 185gr XTP--HP's ( I am new at reloading) and no problems at all. It even fired some rounds that would not load in one of my other .45's. Good and accurate. Fires a little high and slightly right of aimpoint @ 10yards. A little rough on the trigger pull expecially in DA, but not bad. I am spoiled on trigger pull on some of my guns as they have had trigger jobs and pull between 3 and 4#.

My P97DC has a 8 3/4 DA and a 4lb SA pull, and the P90DC has a 9lb DA and a 3 1/2 SA pull. They have had Trigger work and Wolf Springs though.

I am at that point where I just had my fill of the 1911s. I am really interested in the P90, particularly the blued model.

Not meaning to highjack the OPs thread, but to those that own the P90, how is the accuracy and reliability of your piece????
