I have a Ruger p89 9mm that I bought back when all the mags were pinned at 10 rounds. Is there a way to remove the pin so I can utilize the wasted space for added capacity or do I just have to order new mags?
Thanks in advance.

Did I not provide the right information? I know there are a ton of these p-series rugers out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

I do not have a p89. But I did have a p90. It was a 45. It looked just like yours. Mine was a single stack. Is your a double? Mine only held 8.

Nevernind. I just checked. My P95 mags will work in a P89. So it is a double stack 15 round mag. Mine are not pinned down. Can you post a pic of your mag?

The 10 shot magazines in the ruger P series are not pinned. The have a large base that goes up into the magazine. I don't know if the base can be replaced with the base from a 15 shot magazine. If you go the parts list for your pistol at you will see the different bases for the magazines. If you have had your Ruger for a while a new magazine spring won't hurt a thing and they are under $3. Numrich has mec gar magazines for the ruger P series pistols for around thirty dollars. Numrich also carries the original ruger magazines.

You can not convert the magazine in the picture to a 15 shot magazine. The big plastic piece at the bottom is to make up for the length that a 15 shot magazine would have. Mec Gar makes a 17 shot magazine for the P95 that fits flush with the bottom of the grip. I would try to borrow a 15 shot P95 magazine to make sure it won't hang out of the bottom of you pistol.

Promag makes a 32 shot magazine for the P95. Once I got my 32 shot magazine broke in it is just as reliable as my stainless steel magazines that came with my gun. The 32 shot magazine is a blast when plinking and the extra weight in the handle is handy when shooting IPDA. I have yet to have anyone complain about the 32 shot magazine as long as I only put 10 shells in it.

The current Ruger mags are about 25.00 retail.(mileage may very in your location)

Check the Ruger website:The mags for the 9mm pistols changed somewhere around serial#600-000 but I don't know which models.
