P95

The Ruger P95 is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in 9mm. The P-Series have been available in the US since 1987 and are marketed as economically priced all-purpose pistols. The difference between the P-95 and the P-345 is of course the caliber, the P-95 has fixed sights and costs about $200 less. Otherwise they are very similar.

The P-95 uses a short-recoil, locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. Although there are many locked-breech handguns, the P-Series uses a design similar to the SIG P220 and 1911 pistols.

Features include an ambidextrous safety/decocker and an automatic firing pin safety that blocks the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully rearward. It has a black polymer frame, stainless steel or blued alloy steel slide, and a double-stacked 10- or 15-round magazine.

Ruger recommends the P-95 for self-defense, tactical and sport shooting.
