About Ruger P85

The P85 model from the Ruger is an semi-automatic pistol, caliber 9 mm. The Ruger P85 Series is a double action or single action pistol which is chambered with 9mm Luger ammunition.  Maximum magazine capacity of the P85 is 15 rounds, what is an average amount compared to many other pistols of the same caliber. Sights of this model are fixed front and rear. Its finish is aluminium frame which can be designed in various versions. Suitability of the P85 for concealed carry is deeply subjective and also difficult to quantify.

The most proper for concealed carry are smaller handguns which would be easier to conceal, however may be more difficult to handle. Ammunition that is more powerful may have greater stopping power but can often be more difficult to fire accurately. The Ruger company developed the P85 model in 1985, although these pistols were not introduced to the market until December of 1987, anyway it is quite well designed. In 1987 the company produced over 2,100 pistols, whereas in 1988 the total grew to 30,500 and by 1989, what was the same year as the pistol reached the total growth of the 85,300 pistols. The P85 pistol was the first in the long and successful line P series pistol designs producing by the Ruger company.

The P85 model used an investment cast, also known as lost wax cast aluminum frame and made quite extensive use of cast parts as well as Ruger's proprietary alloys. Regarding the all internal parts, that including the barrel, were made of the stainless steel. This model’s ejector and also slide were made of the carbon steel. All of the P series pistols were developed through the P97 pistol that was developed in 1997 and would be named for the year in which development of the particular model was completed.
