Question P 95

Hi Guys,

Quick question, are the slide rails on the P 95 receiver steel or polymer? I have a chance to pick one up for a decent price but was just curious about the receiver rails. Thanx

Rails

The receiver rails are glass filled poly( molded as part of the receiver) that Ruger uses. REALLY tough ! Your great, great grandson may notice some slight looseness from wear ( probably in the steel slide before the receiver)

One of the only poly pistols without steel inserts on the rails. 20+ year old design and still going strong. Ruger nailed the design and materials on the P95

Kenovo ... The P95's polymer rails have proven in my view very durable. With over 16,000 trouble free rounds down the pipe in mine, there is no appreciable wear. Hope it helps ... Good luck with your decision.

Also a good deal on one here in the classifieds.
I have purchased from this member before and would call him a trusted seller.
Just saying

My p95 is 6-7 years old, maybe 2k rounds thru it and I see little or no wear on the rails so far? The stuff is pretty tough..........lube, just enough (tetra gun grease) to make my rails look "wet" and nothing more.

I used to keep track of how many rounds I've shot through my P95DC but I stopped counting at 10,000. Never a problem.

I bought my P95 in 2004, lost count of how many thousands of rounds I've put through it. The polymer rails don't show any wear.
