Noticed this when cleaning my P95 after a range visit. This is not a scratch, it is a crack. Right now it is just on the surface but it does have some depth. Any one else experience this? Something to be worried about? Should I contact Ruger immediately or see if it grows with continued shooting? Nothing but factory loaded standard pressure ammo has ever been fired thru this gun. Thanks in advance for some advice.

That's not a crack. That's the alignment mark for disassembly. There should be another similar mark on the frame.

It is indeed the alignment mark for disassembly as Kingpins9 has stated. Refer to page 23 of your manual for additional details

After careful inspection of my gun, I now feel like a complete idiot.:eek:

Thank you for all the responses. I feel better.

QH ... No Worries ... All of us have had that momentary sense of impending embarrassment at one time or another :)

The advantage to forums like this is that you can ask "dumb" questions that are not dumb. If you don't know the answer it is a good question. There are lots of members here who want to help.

not to be THAT guy.......................but regardless of how many guns you have.......ALWAYS read each manual front to back with EACH new purchase. LOL

(p.s. while handling the same pistol at my local shop i asked what the crack was for. guy laughed at me and told me what it was )

This could happen to anyone. Don't feel like a idiot, if you don't ask these questions you'll never know the answer. I believe all of the Ruger P series have the same marks.

If it were not for these forums...I would have done that the first time I cleaned the gun. Thankfully, I was able to absorb the "experience" of others and now also check the ejector twice before putting the slide back on :cool:

i've had my P95 for 15 years over 20k rounds through it never any problems they are great guns. i've shot everything in mine completely flawless. i totally agree the P95 is a TANK!! my beleif it is one of the best semi-autos Ruger has made.

Love, love, love my P-95's. Have an old style sans accessory rail and a brand new stainless model. Never had a problem with either one. In my opinion, the best value and most utilitarian 9 mil on the market. :D
