I know there have been other posts about this subject and I thought I knew what I was doing after reading them, but that was not the case. I disassembled and cleaned my new P95 for the first time this morning. I made sure the extractor was down on reassembly, but it popped up as I moved the slide back. I bent a coathanger as per previous posts and finally got it back down. Everytime I tried to put the slide back on the extractor would pop up. I finally kept it hooked on the wire and got the slide back on. Slide works fine, but I haven't fired it yet because of the rain we are getting. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong for the extractor to kept popping up when I put the slide back on.

Thanks,
Gene

Welcome to the forum.

The extractor is mounted in the slide. You are talking about the ejector. Anyway...

The blocker lever pivots down as the ejector moves forward. This blocker sometimes is just slightly above the upper frame edge so when the slide is installed, the slide "bumps" the lever and the spring pressure pops the ejector back up and in the way. I have one 95 model that does this all the time.

I really have not found a "fix" but since I know what is going on I am real careful and try not to put any downward pressure on the slide as it is installed.

What you can do to "see" what I am saying is to remove the slide and then press down on the bloker lever which will mimic the slide hitting the blocker. This should pop the ejector back up.

Just takes a few times of stripping and reinstalling the slide to get the hang of it.

The 95 is a great gun. I'm sure you will like and keep it for a long time.

After typing this out I think I have figured a fix. You could file the blocker lever edge a little to make sure it sits just below the frame. Keep in mind this is just my opinion and there could be something else wrong with your gun but this is my bet.

Good luck and welcome again.

Post often to keep the P-guns alive!!

Roylt,

Thanks for the information. I finally had time to check it out this morning and I see what you mean. I was successful in taking it apart twice and putting it back together. I also found that if I pushed the slide faster towards the hammer I didn't have a problem. I was real slow the first time. Still raining here and I can't shoot my new gun. Had to work yesterday and it was nice out; today it rains. Once again thanks for your information.

It has rained so much here the range has been flooded. I haven't been shooting for months! Saving me on trying to find ammo though. silver lining?

Glad it is working for you now.

My now gone p345 did the same thing. It was a pain but never an assembly issue. Honestly make Ruger fix it. I am going to abuse the repair policy until they step it up. Lol
