I think it was (is) the best (and best value) DA .45 going.

I agree 100%. I have bought 2 and if I run across another at a good price I'll buy it. Will have something to hand down to grandchildren that they don't make any more. I wonder why when something is good and works like it is supposed to, they usually replace it with something that is not as good? I thinking about household appliances and chemicals.

I agree-I've had DAO and DC-they went to the grocery store last winter-I'm working for another DC----they shoot easy and carry like they're not even there-but when you hold them-it's enough weight to enjoy handling and shooting them. Calvin-they kept improving Lava soap till it's no good anymore-you're right about that.

As some people on this forum know, I own 2-P95DC's, a P345 and just recently I purchased a NIB P97DC. Without a doubt the P97 is my favorite of them all. The frame is much thinner than my P95's. It's overall size is almost exactly that of the P345, in fact, I have a custom K&D P345 holster and th P97 fits in it perfectly! The P97 has one safety control; the decock lever unlike my P345 which in addition has a magazine disconnect, loaded chamber indicator and the key lock. Felt recoil is about the same as the P345 which is quite low. The DA trigger is the smoothest of all my Rugers and it is the most accurate one also.

Ruger would be well served to bring it back but that will never happen. If I find another I would trade my P345 for it without thinking twice.

I'm truly on the fence. I have a 97, a 90 and a 345. I like all of them - even the one with the 'extra safety goodies'. I don't usually have a hard time making decisions, but this is a tough one. Each has characterics that I like. I do agree, however, that Ruger should still make the 97. I'm sure they could still sell them. I started out with a 90, and then added a 345. Even after having both, I still bought a 97. Surely I'm not the only dummy around am I? (Don't answer that Sheepdog!:D)

Wisdom shows in the important things-elbow to elbow should the wind ever blow wrong in our faces.

That means when the BS stops and the poop hits the fan, I think I'd like to have you there beside me-look at your choice of weapons. Huh, indeed.

Tom,

Would the spring on your 97 fit your 345? I've a 345 that I'd like a stronger recoil spring for, and I am having a tough time finding a good fit.

Thank you in advance.

zukiphile, welcome to the Forum. When you get time introduce yourself in the new member section of the lobby, where everyone can get acquainted with you. Glad you Joined us and feel free to join in and make yourself at home. The spring is a little different on the 345 from the 97. I haven't actually tried to interchange them.

I'll go you one better: The entire P series has now been discontinued, and that should never have occurred. Some of us don't care for the SR series.

The most interesting and excited holiday is Halloween, and many dealers also want to find cheap Halloween costumes for the season sale. Why not consider dear-lover or shiyingsexylingerie? They are experts on manufacture and wholesale Halloween costumes.
Spam alert......:eek:

Wow... a 7 year old thread. I wont buy a gun that doesnt have an external hammer. Period. Ruger, are you listening? I will search Armslist, and GunBroker for the older products before I will ever buy an SR series. I bought an FNX-45 because it has a hammer. I bought a P97 and a P90 because they have a hammer.

My fault. I think the Chinese spammer opened this old thread up before I commented, and when I did comment, I didn't notice how old it was. :eek: Well, at least the spammer is gone. Regardless, I'll still take the P series over the SR series anytime.

I have 2 Ruger P95 pistols, but I'm planning on getting a few P97 and maybe a P94 in 40 S&W too. After that I might even try to find a P90 and P89.

My P89 was disappointing in the accuracy department. I never knew it wasnt very accurate. I needed money and sold it to a friend. I tried for years to buy it back, and he wouldnt budge. I bought a P95, and he and I went shooting one day. Trading pistols back and forth, we both were amazed that the 89 wouldnt come close to the 95. There wasnt anything wrong with the 89, its just the 95 is supurb.

If you want an 89 just for a collection, thats fine, but if you are going to shoot it, dont be surprised if your not very happy with the accuracy.

Yeah, I mostly want a P97. Then after that maybe a P94 DC in 40 S&W. Anything after that is very low on my list. If I found a nice P90 DC I might buy it though. Maybe the P89 isn't as accurate as the P95 because the P95 has the camblock.
