I've got an early P85 also I bought new. Mine went back to the factory for the safety issue but that didn't fix whatever the problem was with mine. (I don't even recall what the problem was). Had to send it in a scond time and that time they put a P89 slide on it. So I've got an early P85 with a factory installed P89 slide.
BTW my P85 is much greyer than the OPs appears to be so mine is now two tone, grey frame and blackish slide.
Not at home now or would post pictures.

Nice P85. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy my P85 MKII.

Thanks for sharing. I have been intrigued with the P85 since the initial ads for it in the mid 1980s. It was Ruger's first mainstream adventure into semi-auto centerfire pistols, and the design details, such as the extended slide stop and two-piece barrel, were interesting. I've always wondered how many pistols were released with the extended slide stop, as you don't generally see online photos of a P85 with one.
