....I think Ive fudged it up pretty bad!!!!

I have Ruger P95 that I recently bought. Somehow, while reassembling after field stripping it, I messed up one step. I am not sure if I put the rod correctly or pull down one spring I shouldn't. I tried to undo it by doing the field strip again, but the chamber slide will not open so I am not able to field strip it.

Anyone with ideas on how to field strip or.....should I take it to a gunsmith.............or have I really, really fudged it up???

First off, Welcome to the Forum... Glad to have you here...

This has happened to me! Usually the ejector has popped back up... I use a crochet hook up through the empty magazine well to hook the ejector and pull it back down... then the slide comes right off... Let me know if this solves your trouble...

Make sure you stop by the New Members Forum and introduce yourself...:)

Welcome to the Forum!!!! As you can see-we're glad to have you! I had a time remembering that little thang, too-it'd pop back up and I'd have trouble putting my P97 back together-but once them Rugers DO get back together you got something that shoots like a Timex (to quote a great Ruger lover).....come on over for coffee!

Well. Took it to the gunsmith. And got back in one piece. BUT! :( For some reason or other, the trigger doesn't want to go double-action. Does single action. Gunsmith didn't wanna touch the mechanism and told me to contact Ruger. :( Sniff. Oh well.

Sounds like you need a new gunsmith with a more adventurous spirit-give Ruger a play-by-play-they may be able to help without sending it back...sounds just like a teenager to me-don't give up!!!

That's a very strange comment for a 'gunsmith' to make, sounds more like something the sporting goods person at WalMart would say. Ruger pistol design is pretty basic and not that complicated. I agree with sheepdog, find a new gunsmith or call Ruger in Prescott, AZ and ask for Joe Cramer. Joe is a great guy who knows his Rugers well.

I'll look for another gunsmith. I didn't talk directly to the gunsmith, but to the owner of the shooting range who has the gunsmith on contract basis. But. Yeah. That's was basically the message. "He doesn't want to mess with it. Send it to Ruger to get it fixed."

BTW, thanks for the info! I sounded like an expert ;)asking for Joe. :D Great customer service. Now. If the other gunsmith doesn't work out, what is the process to send a gun via USPS or UPS? [?]
