The Ruger P89 is rugged & reliable, though not as hand fitting as their later pistols. They were made until 2013. $250-$300 is about what they go for now. The low price is due to the use of investment casting for the frames & some parts, not inferior quality. Ruger's guns are known for their strength.

If yours is in good shape you got a decent deal.

Heres a couple quick pics of mine...It's a P90.45acp but i think they are very similar. I bought it used about 4yrs ago (first gun i bought myself after i became legal...lol) I've put 500 or more rounds thru it, who knows how many before me. Has been very reliable, not even one issue. Its a Cadillac of a range gun...smooth as butta, and would be a great HD gun, but i wouldn't try to CC This monster...Paid $300 for mine, and wouldn't take twice that for it...I think you got a good deal....

thank you guys. i'm also selling them of my hipoint c9 for $75 to the pawn shop and will end up paying ~$150 in the end for the Ruger. i wanted to upgrade from my hipoint as my vehicle/range pistol. i wanted a reliable non-polymer 9mm with a hammer that didn't break the bank and it just seemed like the ruger was too good to be true. do u guys think $75 is a fair price that they offered for my hipoint? i am selling it with 2 magazines.
Right after i came out of the pawn shop, i thought "omg! what did you just do? it's a used gun and how do you know if it even functions properly?" Does ruger still sell parts for and/or service these pistols? and if so are the parts expensive? again thank you guys for taking the time to respond. i appreciate it immensely!

that is a beautiful gun for it being used. the one i'm purchasing is not nearly as nice but i want this gun for function more than aesthetics. but man you got a great deal on yours! looks brand new!

I have no problem buying used guns. Yes, if necessary the P89 could be repaired.

Thank You..I think they gave you a fair price for the C9. They sell new for$149, the shop will probably put it in their case for $100. You had to leave them a little meat on the bone..I'm not kidding about them being a great range gun..accurate..sweet trigger, soaks up recoil... I'm sure you will love yours..

That Ruger DOES have a polymer frame..And i'm with you..much prefer hammer fired pistols over striker fired.

My wife has this gun. They are very accurate for such a low cost gun.

i couldn't tell at the pawn shop if it was polymer or alloy/aluminum so i asked the guy and he said alloy but he said that after he examined it, which meant he didn't know either. but even as a polymer frame i'm still happy if it functions properly. yeah, i started hammerless now i like hammers. go figure
