I'd say that cleaning the firing pin channel & around the extractor is often over looked..
I cleaned my newer slide up before putting it onto the "Project P-89"
I used some Q-Tips & Hoppes #9 & wiped dry, then some Acetone & use no lube on the extractor or firing pin & channel..
Lube in these areas would cause rubbish to build up..
Better off dry..

I'd had hoped that this could help others out!!
The P-Series is an easy to work on firearm it does take some fiddling to get the sear spring & ejector spring in but with an extra pin on the other side or a similar sized drill bit it's fairly easy to do..

Tonight I stripped the P-89 down 4 more times to the hammer..
To do so requires you remove the..
1) Grip Screws & Grips
2) Ejector Assembly, It's Pin & Spring
3) Sear, Sear Spring & It's Pin
4) Blocking Lever & it's Pin
5) Mainspring Cap, Spring, Stirup, & Pin
6) Hammer Pin & Hammer

I worked the hammer hook & the sear hook over with a piece of 600 grit wet/dry wrapped around a small needle file without changing the angles & the results were great, The DA already felt fair so I left that alone..
The SA now feels like a SIG.. The stacking & creep are gone..
Next time I open it up I will polish the hammer & sear hooks with some Mother's Polish & the Dremel Tool to a mirror shine..

If you can't go directly to that PDF Go to Steve's Manuals page here..
http://www.stevespages.com/page7b.htm
Select - The Manual Ruger Forgot To Write - P89 Disassembly Picture Manual
Enjoy Fellas!!
The PDF is alot better as it doesn't have to load the same as the JPGs..
I only wish I had found this manual when I was starting my "Project P-89"
It now only needs a few new magazines, Those will be here soon, & a range test with several different ammos..

I figure all these pictures take up alot of bandwidth & that's why they are only Sticky'd for 30 days..
Now being Steve @ Steve'sPages has the manual hosted with some search on the right term anyone should be able to find it without much trouble..

Also after the first sear/hammer fluff I did it again but went from 600 grit to 1200, 1500 & 3000 grit & then polished them both up with flitz & mothers with the dremel..
After the ridges were removed & they have become mated the trigger break is so much sweeter..
Now if I had a Wolff reduced power spring kit I'd be set up..

Ruger P Series Lovers Enjoy!!

89 and 93 are real simular. Actually the 85,89,90,91,93,94,944 are very close and the 95,97,345 have things incommon too. Basically all the P-guns.

Enjoy and thanks again Berettapistols!

The P89DC was my first pistol. I just like the looks and ease of caring / tinkering / use. Ruger is made in America. Ruger stands behind there products 100%. Something to be said about being all metal. Also the price point. I have always liked the stainless Beretta 92 inox but just can't part with enough money to buy one.

There are other guns out there that are nice too. I also have a few Glocks. HKs are real nice but again, price is a hurdle for me.

Why do you ask? Yea or nay for you?
