Ruger 9mm model P85 Stainless Very Good White Frame 1988 Production 2nd Year Israeli Police Issue
OUR # HG7583

Item Description

Ruger’s P series pistols never won any beauty contests, but they repeatedly won on reliability, simplicity, economy, and dependability. Here is a low numbered, original P85. Manufacturer and warrantor is Sturm, Ruger & Company of Prescott, Arizona. From its 300-20000 range serial number it was manufactured in 1988, only the Second Year of Production. It served in Israel with the Mishteret Y'Israel, the Israeli Civilian Police. Import marks are on the right side of the slide, as required by the 1968 Gun Control Act. Construction is steel slide assembly, internal parts, and trigger, all built into a lightweight alloy frame, with alloy guide rod and polymer grip panels. Type is hammer fired, locked breech, traditional double and single action, semi automatic pistol. This is the standard lever safety variant. Main safety is ambidextrous levers that also decock the pistol; it also has the firing pin block that guards against accidental firing if the pistol is dropped or bumped. The main lever safely decocks the firearm when the shooter decides to cease firing or put the hammer at rest after loading the pistol. It is fully ambidextrous, both for its levers and for its magazine release. Caliber is 9mm Luger, 9mm Parabellum, 9x19, call it what you will, THE 9mm. Barrel is 4 inch stainless, six groove 1:10 rifling, with full length fluted steel guide rod. Sights are combat 3 dot, pinned securely into place on the slide, drift adjustable for windage. Trigger is .365 smooth faced, with .323 commander style serrated spur hammer. Travel is 1 1/4 inches; double action pull is 11 pound vicinity and smooth, with a two stage, 5 1/2 pounds single action that yields little felt creep and no felt overtravel. Magazine is original factory steel, made for Ruger by Check-Mate, blued steel 15 round, so 15 + 1 fully loaded capacity. Grips are serration fluted black polymer. Overall length is 7 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches height; 1.273 frame thickness beneath the ejection port. Weight empty is 32 ounces, centered behind the trigger. Finish is matte stainless and white matte alloy. Almost all of the P85 and P89 pistols had gray alloy frames; this one's is white. Surface detractions are moderate, principally edge wear. We rate this P93 as Very Good Condition, 80 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean. We estimate it has been fired 1,000 times, no rounds at all for a P series Ruger. Like most Rugers, this pistol is not only serviceable, it is virtually indestructible. This one is somewhat rare because of its year of production, where it served, and its white frame finish. We're offering it for only $ 319.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California or Massachusetts. For Civilian buyers in jurisdictions where 15 round magazines are restricted to Law Enforcement, we will sub a new Mec-Gar 10 rounder for $15 extra, or $8 off and no magazines, buyer’s call. Affected jurisdictions include Connecticut, District of Colombia, Hawaii, Maryland, and New York.
