An SR-series magazine is too wide to fit a P-series pistol, and the notch for the magazine catch is in a different place.I do NOT dispute WHAT you say -
The pictured mag came with the purchase of a used Ruger P95DC -
The firearm was a trade-in to a gun shop in OR -
Gun shop owner test fired the P95 and found it did not fire DA -
Gun AND mag sent to Ruger -
Repairs made to gun with mag sent to Ruger -
Ruger denies having EVER made a 40 Cal 15 round mag -
Bottom line is - Regardless of info provided by Ruger - 9mm and 40 cal ( 10mm ) MAGAZINES are interchangeable - IF - loaded with the PROPER ammo for the specific pistol !
E.g. - 9mm ammo in a 40 cal mag / 40 cal ammo in a 9mm mag !
I am ONLY relaying info that I received from previous gun owner and Ruger techs !
Please, do NOT shoot the MESSENGER !
I have two (2) Ruger P95DC's, two (2) Ruger 10 round mags which came with the 1st one circa 2015 +/-An SR-series magazine is too wide to fit a P-series pistol, and the notch for the magazine catch is in a different place.
Will this work in a P94 .40?OK, after I received a copy of the Service and Repair Order provided by Ruger from the seller, the SAR stated that the gun was recv'd by them with a 15 round magazine accompanying it, they made the necessary repairs and test fried 30 rounds thru the gun using the provided 15 round magazine.
I spoke to the seller who informed me that the gun and accompanying magazine were in his possession from a trade-in and upon test firing, discovered that the pistol failed to fire in the double action mode. He subsequently sent the gun and mag to Ruger for repair, and Ruger replaced the hammer,sear, sear spring and trigger bar. Then test fired the gun with 30 rounds of Black Hills 115gr FMJ, without malfunction.
I made a copy of the SAR and emailed Ruger inquiring if a 40 Cal mag would work properly in this 9 mm pistol and if, in fact, they used the provided magazine when it was test fired.
The reply which I received from Ruger stated : " We received a 15 round magazine with the pistol which would be a 9mm because we do not offer a 15 round magazine in a 40 caliber. The pistol would not have been tested with a 40 caliber magazine. "
I would attempt to take a pic of the mag with the stamped " 40 CAL " marking on the front of the mag and upload it - but it does not show up in the photo and there is no way I can enhance it to make it stand out.
However, I was able to locate and upload an ad for the " Non-existent Ruger 40 caliber " magazine which Ruger does NOT make !
FWIW - The Ruger magazine that YOU picture is an EXACT duplicate of the magazine which was supplied with my 2nd Ruger P95DC by the gun shop which took it in on a trade-in -
One would think the follower is different when using it for .40I would assume so - as the Mec-Gar magazine chart ( image posted in a previous reply above ) shows that the Ruger P85 / 89 / 93 / 95 / PC9 - ALL use the same magazine - just the capacities are different !
According to info posted on the Internet - the .40 cal is 10mm, and 1mm = .039" - which is approx. 1/25 of an inch ! 1 / 25 = .04" - You would need a micrometer or a caliper to measure this small amount.One would think the follower is different when using it for .40
I hear ya - BUT - the FACT of the matter is simply this :The mag lips look like they are the same. The gap on the .40 mag is 1/8" or more bigger. Followers are totally different. A 9 dropped into the top of the .40 mag looks iffy. Like a good slap on the bottom and it would be ejecting rounds.
Feed lips both have some taper to them. The 9 has much more taper, and is more smaller.
well ed.........I think the tech was probably not born yet or in diapers when Ruger was building the metal frame pistols. They built the P91, and P94 both in 40 caliber. Here is my P94DAOFWIW - The Ruger magazine that YOU picture is an EXACT duplicate of the magazine which was supplied with my 2nd Ruger P95DC by the gun shop which took it in on a trade-in -
The ONLY difference is YOUR blueing is more intact than mine and your bottom plate with the Ruger logo is in better condition .
Also, FWIW - THAT magazine should hold 15 rounds of 9mm - with ALL things being equal !
Quite interesting / intriguing , to say the least - especially when the Ruger Tech emphatically stated that Ruger NEVER produced a 40 CAL magazine !
I did purchase a couple of 40 cal mags for my P95 one time, and they wouldn't operate in my gun. I don't know what the difference was between the 9mm mags and the 40 mags, maybe the angle of the stack at the top of the magazines was wrong for 9mm or something, but I ended up taking them back.During the high-cap magazine ban, word got out that the .40 caliber Ruger mag would work in the 9mm P guns. I bought several of them at the time but I don't believe I ever used them because I already had plenty of the 9mm mags. I think the .40-cal mags I bought were intended to hold 10 rounds of .40 and would hold just 14 rounds of 9, but I could be misremembering.
