I'd love to have one on the P-Series Autopistols..
How do we get in contact with Iowegan??
Everybody needs an IBOK..

I have a Project P-89 Reciever & Parts Kit deal in the works & would love some knowledge instead of doing it wrong & having to ask questions..

Were/When/How Much do I send??

There is a thread here IBOK for SP101. Iowegan's post is number 4. Looks like the single action, double action, and Mark III/10-22 books will be available shortly.

Iowegan said he won't make a ibok for the p series...too much to cover and doesnt feel like doing it since he owns no p pistols...

Guys, The Standard & Mark Series Gun Guide is finished and will be available in less than a month. I am also having another batch of SA Gun Guides and DA Gun Guides printed at the same time. I expect to start shipping on Oct 11th. It looks like the SA & DA books will be the same price as before. The Standard & Mark Series book is fewer pages so it should be a little cheaper. I'll know more when I actually get the order in hand and will post the full information in the Classified ad section.

smokestakz, The Iowegan Book of Knowledge (IBOK) were short freebies that I had posted on the forum for many of the Ruger models. Unfortunately I ran into copyright issues and had to remove them last November, so the old IBOKs are dead. Since then, I totally rewrote and consolidated the IBOKs into a DA Gun Guide for all Ruger DA Revolvers, a SA Gun Guide for all Old and New Model SA Revolvers, and now a Standard and Mark Series Gun Guide that will cover all the 22 pistols from the first one Ruger made to the newest Mark IIIs.

I never got around to an IBOK for the P-Guns. I only own one .... a P-944 and because all models are slightly different, I just never got the urge. Besides, there's really not much you can do for action work or custom work. Other than sights, holsters, and grips, the aftermarket support for Ruger P-guns is almost non-existent.

On the advise of contender I ordered "The Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly Part 1 Automatic Pistols 2nd Edition by JB Wood's"
I have all the parts coming & will start a topic called "Project P-89" when everything arrives & I start to assemble the pistol from scratch..
I'll try an get a picture of each piece being installed & in what order so they'll be something online that other folks can look at..

Thanks to all who have replied
It won't be long & I'll know as much about the P Series as I do about MKIIs & 10/22s..

I'm also copying this post to a thread in the Pistol area called P89 Armourer's Manual..

iowegan- youre right about the differences in the p-series...just too much info...but while i have you here i do want to see if you can help me with my trigger (p95pr)...im sure alot of people have the same complaint but i want to fix it...it just seems/feels that there is a lot of grittyness on the pull as if the trigger bar is pressing up against the frame...i assume trigger bar because it is the only part that moves a fair bit whilst possibly rubbing the frame since it only rests maybe a millimeter off of it...any kind of mods, polishing or filing ideas?

smokestakz, Herein lies the problem with many Ruger P-guns. The gritty trigger is usually connected to the trigger bar, which is a stamped part that Ruger doesn't take time to clean up. Sometimes it's a sharp edge that is biting in to the frame but mostly it's the tab that pulls the sear. Dressing the sear tab will likely smooth things out but there is a high risk of ruining the part. Just a few thousandths off the sear tab makes a difference in "works" or "ruined". The trigger bar is a factory fitted part so you cannot buy one without sending your gun back to the factory.
