While Ruger autos are not my favorite pistols, like Denny and JR, I prize total reliability above all else. My experience has been that they are some of the most reliable AND durable autos ever made. Hard not to have affection for pistols like that.

Skipper, you have reminded me of the reliability tests Ruger ran on the P85, back when. I read about them in Shooting Times.

In one test, Ruger engineers cut away the right side of the slide below the ejection port, so that it was only held together on the left side, and proceeded to fire thousands of rounds, with no problem.

They took another pistol and plugged the barrel, then fired a round. aside from the barrel (natch) and extractor, there was no damage. After replacing those parts, the gun fired normally.

I think the only reason Ruger doesn't use the P=PERFECTION model of advertising is that it would make them sound too much like the blowhards at Glock.

Nah… I can think of at least two much more valid reasons.

And in the interest of further aquired knowledge what would those reasons be?

I'm pretty sure about the dates but I may have misremembered the model. It could have been a predecessor to the P89 and when I later handled a P89 I might have thought it the same model that I had shot in the past.

It was probably one of the recall p-85's all of the original modeles looked alike.

the p-89 90 and 91 all loked alike and the only way they are distinguished from one another is the engraving on the sides.
