Re: Ruger P345 45 ACP

Did you ever remove the magazine safety? The parts are under the rear sight. That's what caused the FTF sometimes if the slide wasn't reinstalled properly while the mag safety was present. I'm pretty sure that the issue is without a magazine in place, dry firing will cause the firing pin to hit the...

Re: Remove Staked Grip Bushing

I removed Colt factory bushings that were staked using a bushing driver bit from Brownells. https://i.postimg.cc/s217S48x/tool.jpg I always hit the bushing with some heat on the chance there is some thread locker present. When using the driver, I clamp my frame to the work bench, apply pressure on t...

Re: Speed Six 1st range outing for me

Nice Speed Six I feel like I have better control using it with my Pachmayer Compacs. With the SP101 using the Hogue grip, really helps with control and the trigger guard doesn't hack my knuckle. You have a nice set there. I also like the Compacs, but wanted wood; so I tried to mimic the Compacs by ...

Re: LCP2 in .22LR

Went to the range with mine today Super excellent little shooter. Accurate and easy ergonomics. I meet more magazines. Lol!!!! The little loader works well. My experience with the LCP II .22 mirrors yours I've about 300 rounds (Federal field pack and Blazer) through mine with only only one stoppage...

Re: P345 mag question

My experience with P90 and P345 magazines mirrors stchman's "The mags are completely interchangeable". https://i.postimg.cc/hv2DZxKJ/p90a865.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/d3LpvT8Z/p345s865-copyab.jpg \ I only run the mags with plastic followers in my P90 because the metal follower can gouge the...

Upgraded my original LCP

I did this earlier in the year, but have been remiss in posting about it here. I've had my LCP for sometime. I liked it well enough to send it out for better sights and, after a second trip to the folks that installed them, I was happy with the sights. This was before Ruger came out with their "...

Re: Is this normal on a P90 slide ?

Is this normal ? I have a P90 and under the slide on the long flat surface that scoops up a round from the magazine , there is a portion of one of it's corners that is cut at an angle on the left side. Not sure if this is normal or made this way . The area is right on the breech face under the firi...

Re: What's the deal with the outdated & useless P89 thread?

I wish Gary's pics were still there. I became a member here years ago. Forgot my old username. Wished I could remember it. My first Ruger was a Ruger P89DC Stainless. I still have it and carry it once in awhile. This forum is where I learned to put the 19lb Wolf hammer spring and Wolf recoil spring...

Re: Ruger P345 Pistol

If I remember the internet stories about these, some claimed that if the gun was ever dry fired you never knew when you'd get a "click-no-bang" situation. So you sure as heck 1. didn't want to buy one used and 2. couldn't trust it for concealed carry or home defense. No idea if that was t...

My apologies if I gave the impression that is my P90 in the first post. It was just something I found and shared here.
