This is how I did the Hammer Spring R&R on my P95DPR in 5 to 10 minutes...
  • Unload and clear the pistol.
  • Orient the pistol with the butt of the pistol Up.
  • Drift the Hammer Spring Seat Pin, (1) while holding Hammer Spring Seat(2) in the Magazine Well with your thumb.
  • Then slowly lift your thumb while keeping pressure applied to the Hammer Spring Seat(2). As you do this, the Hammer Spring(4) and the Hammer Spring Detent(3) will emerge from the Magazine Well...
  • Remove the Hammer Sping(4) carefully and don't disturb the Hammer Strut(V01601).
  • Slide the new Hammer Spring into place.
  • ReAssemble in reverse order.

Rick,

For all of us guys who enjoy working on our Rugers I must say 'Thank you very much' for these posts. You have a real talent for explaining the different 'lessons' through both words and pictures. I have a couple Kel-Tec pistols and have had a lot of fun working on them thanks to people like you over on the Kel-Tec site.

Hopefully this site will be as helpful to us Ruger guys as the KTOG site has been to Kel-Tec owners. You sure have it off to a good start!

Dave

I agree with cavediver. I consider myself pretty handy with Ruger revolvers as far as doing a little gunsmithing, but never was brave enough to tackle to autos. Your piture tutorials are excellant!

Thanks. I may try this with my P95 soon. I need to order from Wolff for a couple of other projects and might as well add this to the order.
I bought the spring, but I haven't installed it yet. I also put a new recoil spring in a 1911; so, I guess I need to get the spring in my P95 and make a range trip.

Orient it as in the diagram above... and slide it into the well and up and through the slot to the hammer.

Let me know how you like the "new" double action trigger...:D
It feels better. I went with the 21 pound spring; so, I wasn't expecting a huge drop off.

Do you know of a good manual or video for a complete detail strip for the P95?

There is a DVD for detail strip of P-Series I've heard of... But I've done it with just "common sense"... Some day I'll document it for this site, in PDF format, with pictures...

It looks like only two pins holding the major internals in there, but I would want some sort of reference guide before I started it.

As a sidenote, I used the 19 pound hammer spring and have been very happy with the performance...:D Big difference in DA pull... 100% bang with all the major factory loads I've used so far... Federal, Hornady, Winchester and UMC/Remington...

I actually own the VHS version of "Complete Ruger" and I have to tell you that it's WELL worth the 20 bucks (even though I recieved mine as a gift). I highly recommend it. If anyone needs a link I will try and provide one. It comes in DVD as well. And, when they say COMPLETE Ruger (as in COMPLETE assembly and disassebly), they mean COMPLETE)

A link would be appreciated.

I tried her out today. She functioned fine for me, but a shooting buddy had several weird feeding issues with it. It was a brand new mag, but I don't know if he was limpwristing or not. These were the first malfunctions this pistol has ever had except for a blatant attempt by another shooting buddy to see how light of a charge he could load for it until it wouldn't feed.
