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?

For anyone interested, I did a full tear down and reassembly video on the P89 and put it on YouTube. My name there is TomD Gunnery. I was frustrated trying to figure it out and spent an incredible number of hours watching too many partially helpful videos. Once I had it down, I decided to just do a recording to help others. I make nothing off it, just happy if it can help out.

I have another one where I do a walk through of all the P Series side by side. Hoping to have the time to do more.

Hope it helps someone!

The P89 was my first semi automatic center fire handgun. It has become my "car gun". No complaints.
