    I recently purchased a Ruger p95 a few months ago. its been a FTE o'matic with any ammo. I just need parts. when it works it is a blast to shoot. Wife doesn't want me to spend 4 to have it repaired or buy parts n do it my self.

    So im left with a delhema. To keep it and deal with it, or trade it for a Ruger 22/45 MKIII

    Try a 6 doller recoil spring for that ruger. Never handled the 22/45. But after about 6-7k rounds the Ruger became a fte. Ordered a new spring and it was 100%

    When I first got my p95 it was doing the same thing, I got a new mag and now it's been 100%, don't know for sure why but it's good now. Others will be able to give better advice I'm sure, but I'd keep the p95, it's a great gun

    I had a P95 for less than 36 hours. It was about as sexy as a brick. I would gladly make the swap for a MK III.

    Don't have a Mk III - but I"ve got both its ancestor (the Ruger Std .22) and a P95.

    FWIW - I'd have Ruger take the P95 and look at it. It won't cost you anything (I think they'll even cover shipping) and they'll get it rolling. I know everyone makes a lemon every now and then, but in general P95's have a pretty solid reputation for reliability. I've had mine for over 8 years and several thousand rounds of ammo with no issues. Not my favorite gun nor the first I grab anymore, but I still shoot it and would never get rid of it.

    That is unusual for a P95.But there is no need to put up with a jamming gun.Plus 22 ammo is a lot cheaper than 9mm.

    Ya know... Ruger will fix that P95 for free. Call their CS and you will even get free shipping.

    You could send your P95 to Ruger and have them look at it. They have an excellent reputation for customer service and likely wouldn't charge to fix it.

    The sight on the .22 pictured above is a $10 Daisy airgun sight. It's a rather strange choice for such a pistol. This suggests that the owner doesn't really know guns and that you may be able to get a deal if you offer cash.

    Also, if you decide to get the .22, make sure you handle it a bit first. I handled one, and the grip felt similar to aiming a deck of cards. Not a fan.
