Opinions on Ruger KP97DC?
« on: April 10, 2007, 05:38:34 PM »
There's one of these at the local shop for $300, I kinda like the way it feels and it's a .45 of course.
Must fight urge...
But just in case I lose; anyone have personal experience with one? ;) :lol:

Hard pressed on my right. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I am attacking.

I never fired a P97 But I have a P95DC and a P90TH(Two tone and houge grips) and love them both.I had a problem with the P95 locking up on reassembly but found out what was wrong and fixed it. The only thing of concern with the P97 that I know of is that the slide release would back out with firing on the early models but I think Ruger fixed it. 300 dollars seems like a decent price  to me if in excellent condition and comes with more then one mag but it has been a while sense I've seen a p97 for sell but a blued P90 sells at  Academy for 410 dollars  or 450 dollars for a stainless model and blued p95 sells for 360 dollars.

I have two P97's ,both decockers. Built like tanks for a "Plastic" framed pistol. My blued model has over 3000 rounds through it and has been flawless. I would not pay more than 325-350 for one almost new in the box, and thats OTD.I like the slim frame of the P97, it CCW very well for me and I am not a big guy at 5' 9'' and about 160.
