It is possible for certain Ruger® P85™ 9mm pistols manufactured between 1987 and 1990 to accidentally discharge when the safety/decocker lever is engaged, if the firing pin is broken in a particular way. This can potentially lead to accidents if the user fails to take the basic, very important safety precaution of always keeping the pistol pointed in a safe direction, especially when loading, unloading, or decocking. Although these firing pins are very durable and breakage has only occurred in a handful of instances, Ruger developed a safety modification that replaces the safety and firing pin mechanism to prevent accidental discharge under these circumstances. The safety modification consists of internally modifying the pistol to accept the new safety system; there is no alteration to the frame itself.
How To Determine If Your Pistol Needs The Safety Modification:
If you own a P85™ manufactured between 1987 and 1990 that has not had the safety modification, please contact us immediately to arrange for installation of the safety modification.
Step 2 - We will verify that your pistol is eligible for the safety modification, and if so, will send you a packing container, detailed instructions and shipping label so you can send your pistol to us FREE of charge.
Step 3 - We will install the new safety modification in your P85™ and will return it to you FREE of charge.
We recognize that this is an inconvenience so, as a thank you, we will include an extra magazine at no charge to you when we return the pistol.
