P90 Trigger???

My P90 is my favorite out of my three .45's, even though it is the least expensive of the bunch... it just fits really well and hits what I'm looking at.... but he trigger, my God, what a POS.... my 93 year old Gram has less creep than this trigger...

Anyone know of a way to clean the existing trigger up or know of any trigger kits available for this gun? My local smith didn't really want to touch it, saying he might be able to clean the single action up a little but was a risky deal with these and it's easy to get them so they won't fire at all??

Any input here? Thanks!

Are you referring to double action or single action?

We have two identical KP90s and both have really good single action triggers once you take up the slack. Slack is common and to be expected in this type action. I used to own a third KP90 and its trigger was good too.

The double action on both is long as expected but smooth and stageless.

If your gunsmith won't touch it, you might be better off calling Ruger and getting their take.

Thanks for the reply....

I'm talking single action..... the double action is about 10 pounds and about what you would expect.... the single action is almost 6 pounds, creepy and a lot of 'drag"... I know its a cheap gun but I still think this is excesssive....if I could get it crisper and under 4 pounds , this pistol would be perfect....Ruger was absolutely no help at all they won't do any custom trigger... my Kimber's trigger breaks at 3 1/2 pounds with no perceptible creep at all.....

Just wondering why the P90 is your favorite if the trigger is so bad? The trigger is the #1 thing I rate a gun on. No matter what else it's got, if the trigger is bad, what good is it?

I'm not commenting on the P90. I've never shot one.

"cause everything else is so right.... fits my hand like a glove (with the Hogue grips)..... is the most accurate ,(over my Kimber and Colt 1911).... and it's a tank.... rugged,dependable, never jams..... I swear I could drive over it, dig it out of the mud and it would fire....

jackaleman is an unknown quantity at this point
The P-90 is one of the oddest shaped guns I have ever owned. If it weren't for the Hi-Point 45s I would also say the P-90 is the ugliest. The trigger does suck on them. I found somebody desperate to buy 45s and sold them both. No regrets. The P-90 and Hi Point both have a very cheap feel and they are like aiming 71 Cadillac. So far I have not found an all metal Ruger automatic except for the Mark I, II that I like. They do make some nice revolvers and rifles though

Just wondering. Everyone's got their likes and dislikes. They're just not my cup of tea.

Are you including the SR1911? It's an all metal auto. I've got it and two other 1911's and the SR holds it's own against them.

Get some Royal Purple. I used regular motor oil but I guess they now have a spray on gun oil.

Lube the crap out of the sear and the rest of the linkage for that matter.

Same thing on revolvers as well they just pull like velvet.

P-90 and P-95 as well as other autos. My favorite trick on someone's gun they are complaining about.

Six pounds is about right. It's very unlikely you'll ever get the P90 trigger anywhere near as crisp as a Kimber's. The fact is, the P90's action out of the box just can't be improved much if at all without spending a lot of money. You may smooth things up a bit but my experience is shooting it will often do that for you.

I've got well over 10,000 rounds through my KP90 and my wife's has an unknown round count. However, we bought it from a fellow who swore it had less than 100 rounds through it. Lack of visible wear patterns (that are present now) supported his claim and hers has about 250 rounds fired now by her. The trigger on the two guns are so close you have to look at the serial numbers to tell whose is whose.

Yep and for the same reason. I like the bike oil because has more zinc in it as well. I found how well it worked in my Superglide and tried it on everything. Took a small bottle with a drip oiler and keep it full with the RP.

Lube the saddle where the trigger rests/pivots,the pin hole in the linkage and where the linkage slides on the frame. Harder to get to it but the sear and the linkage that does the double action deal. Basically moves freely without the drag.

It just seems that coating that Royal Purple does makes it slide nice.

You can see why I like this .45.... I don't shoot my Kimber or Colt like this.... If I can fix the trigger I bet I can get rid of the two fliers.... when I'm off with this P90 it's always to the right.. I think I tend to give up on the trigger breaking and let my hold drift right.... oh... this was only from 20Yds... single action, two hand stance, taking my sweet time....
