New In Box RUGER P Series Decock-Only Pistol, Model P97D, 45 ACP Caliber, 7 1/4"
Barrel, Blued Finish, Black Grip Panels, Polymer Frame
Each metal frame P Series pistol is made of hard-coated A356T aircraft-
quality aluminum alloy; Ruger's proprietary Terhune Anticorro stainless
steel (chrome-molybdenum steel in blued models); nearly indestructible
resin grip panels; custom, compounded polymer frames of the P95 and
P97; and long-strand fiberglass filler that is a natural shock
P Series pistols easily fieldstrip for cleaning, without the use of
special tools, into five major subassemblies. Ruger offers several
ambidextrous variations on the proven P Series double-action design.
All centerfire models include a firing pin block that prevents firing
unless the trigger is completely pulled and held fully back.
Manual Safety models incorporate a manual ambidextrous lever that,
when engaged, prevents firing unless the lever is in the "fire"
Decock-Only models allow safe return to their "at rest" mode when
either ambidextrous decocking lever is depressed. After decocking, the
gun can be fired by a double-action pull of the trigger without
further manipulation of the decocking lever.
Double-Action-Only models have no external safety, full-cock hammer
position, or decocking lever. As with all P Series pistols, this model
features a firing pin block safety, which engages only when the
trigger is fully depressed. Similar in operation to a double-action
revolver, operation is "double-action only" for each shot, requiring a
long pull of the trigger to cock the hammer and fire the pistol.
