Ruger p95

Hi guys i need some help from experts and the ones who have experience like my ruger p95 the barrel has a scratch outside which is very slightly deep wherein your nails get stuck..And does this cause problems? I used 100 rounds of magtech +p+ 115gr ammo before and 1200 rounds of FMJ rounds and right after i got back from the range, its already like this.. Overall it functions fine inside the bore there is no problem but only the outside.. And my rear sight is turning into maroon like color and inside part the sear i think turns into rusty color. Once i got it from the store its already like this except for that scratch outside the barrel its very tiny but if its like a road, it should be a small pothole or something.. Is it a serious one? I replaced my carry rounds which was magtech +p+ 115gr to Federal hydra shok 9mm standard pressure..

I'm no expert, but I slept on a waterbed last night.

I would venture the +P+ ammo isn't helping your gun.

What most of my friends do, who use + ammo, is shoot

regular FMJ, then load the + stuff for SD. They claim it

keeps their ammo costs reasonable, and cuts down on

wear and tear in their guns.

Federal Hydra Shoks are more expensive here than the +p+ but i will not use +p+ anymore.. So do you think that scratch on the barrel is still safe or what? T_T

K4G ... In answer to your questions:

1. The P95 is a workhorse. Mine has digested over 16,000 trouble free rounds of a variety of standard pressure and +P ammo over the past 13 years and is still in excellent condition. That said, and given that Ruger does not recommend anything above a +P round for their pistols, nor does SAAMI have specification for +P+ rounds (Some sources project them to be roughly 18% higher (42,000 psi) than standard pressure 9mm (35,000 psi)), I would never subject any of my pistols to the extra wear and tear.

2. Regarding the barrel "scratch", I'm unable to see enough detail in your pictures to render an opinion. If you believe it to be something more than a blemish or tool mark, I would suggest to consult a local gunsmith.

In Ruger and His Guns there is a pic of a P89 that they cut the slide at the ejection port and fired the crap out of it. Then they purposely left a bullet in the bore and fired it until it was full of bullets. Didn't hurt it. I think there is no more durable pistols made than the P series Rugers.

Wow i didnt know the p series that durable.. So i think this wouldnt cause problems at all.. I would just stop using my magtech +p+ rounds.. The thing is i havent fired it since then.. During break in period this scratch never showed up.. Only after going to the range yesterday.. I was using armscor 9mm fmjs

K4G ... With the exception of adding the Hogue Handall grip sleeve my P95 is exactly as it came out of the box. The small mark is likely nothing to be concerned about but certainly something to keep an eye on going forward.

Here is a recent picture of mine along with it's P345 stablemate as well as some typical targets at 10 yards

Are the parts turning a purple, plum color?

If so, it is probably from the alloy mix. I've heard bluing does this if the iron content was a bit high. It is only cosmetic.

I wouldn't worry to much about the ammo your using............
A Ruger p95 should handle any factory ammo you want to use!
