ChannelOneVideos: Thanks. This answered some questions. Do you know how much different the P85 would be to disassemble?
Gary Hart: Thanks for this video. However I do want to make a suggestion on the removal of the extractor. Use dental floss to hook the extractor to pull out and forward to avoid damaging the extractor as well as the slide. Other than that. Awesome video.
swbrotherton: tyler: i sent you a few pm's on this. anyone else concerned with his issue, i do believe he was easing the chamber shut and closing fully when he pulled the trigger. Mine does the same thing. I'm fairly certain the gun is not popping out of safety as i have never seen this happen with any firearm.
Tyler Christeson: I have only put 50 rounds through my P95. While cleaning it today I encountered a problem with the safety. After putting the gun on safe, when I pull the trigger once the slide moves forward ever so slightly. After I pull the trigger two or three more times it comes off safe and fires. Also, when I pull the slide back and the pull it back forward if it falls back into position too fast the hammer strikes immediately instead of the hammer staying roostered. Any suggestions?
swbrotherton: Jtsct: 1. What was I wrong about and 2. Lube in the pin chamber will gum it up. The lube and powder will combine and make a gooey paste. I've had a number of friends wonder why their gun won't perform and after inspection they had lubed the firing pin and spring. Only do this if you are storing the gun long term. The spring is not as stiff/powerful as you might think like a hammer spring.
jtsct: So there is no lube at all in the firing channel/pin?
jtsct: You're wrong, especially if you shot a lot.
swbrotherton: Whoever marked this for spam please learn what spam is. and bigwalt2990: If you are referring to this video "if it aint broke don't fix it." let me know how it works for you when you need your firearm to perform and it just won't because you didn't take tip top care of it. If not then I misunderstood and I'm sorry. The rule of thumb is, if you can clean it and maintain it easily, why not do it? BTW the Ruger P95 has a deroosterer only model as well as a manual safety. Google is your friend. :)
bigwalt2990: If it ain't broke, don't fix it..............mine doesnt have a safety btw, just two identical deroosterer levers, must be an older version? (who needs safeties anyways)
swbrotherton: Heck yeah. oil in the pin chamber will do it every time. Good to know this helped!
swbrotherton: I don't think you could hurt this thing if you tried. I've done this multiple times on a P95 and a P89. Still tickin'.
swbrotherton: Yessir, P95: might be a budget gun but it is built to take ABUSE. No frills means less points for it to fail at.
swbrotherton: Hey Tim, Yessir.
swbrotherton: Hey John Doe, Sorry for the late response, I have honestly tried to get the rear sights on a P95 off without a hammer and pin set but for the life of me couldn't. If I had the money to grab a suitable replacement firearm just in case the removal went south I would be glad to try it, but for now I am contracting IT work, which means no sick leave, benefits, etc. Plus it looks like it might be better to leave it to pros to zero sights. I am by no means a professional gunsmith. ;)
swbrotherton: Stupid character limit... Anyhow in continuation, from what I have seen and remember, the extractor pin, the deroosterer lever, slide, etc, should all be the same save for the holes in the switch to indicate safety status, and the pin and spring to lock safety in place. I am of the more adventurous type and would not hesitate to tear into one. If anything the DC should have less parts to fool with. I wouldn't be scared to do it using this same guide honestly.
swbrotherton: Christine: I would assume the brunt of the mechanics are the same. The only thing that is different is a spring loaded pin to hold the cam block in place when you derooster the pistol so that it doesn't fire. I would love to do a video on it but I do not know of anyone that has a P95DC, much less anyone willing to let me go Dr. Frankenstein on it. I know the P89 is exactly the same. Make sense?
John Doe: Noob question, can you make a video on how to remove the P95 sights? Thanks!
Tim Lam: Great Video! If I just want to take out the safety levels, do I need to take out the extractor pin like you've shown first?
1bigpea: Heck yeah, thanks for the disassembly video. Hard to find for the Ruger P95DC.
Loquaciousgamer: It's very simple. Thanks for the video. This is why I love the p95: everything is so easy to take apart, to clean and replace parts.
