I had a P85 a few years ago, and it all of a sudden developed jam problems. I called Ruger, and the service rep diagnosed over the phone that the extractor was dirty. Following his directions, I pulled the extractor out, cleaned, and lubed it properly, and never had another jam with it. I ended up giving the pistol to my son, and he never had a problem with it either.

Ruger makes a very nice pistol, and their customer service and warranty have always been top notch. I have several different brands and will always have at least one Ruger.

The P85 was my Dad's last Duty Gun. He only had it for about 3 years before he went out on paid medical leave. He died 3-1/2 months short of retiring at 60. I don't believe his has more then 200 rounds through it. I thought it would go back into the postal police/ Inspectors armory to be issued to another officer or inspector. In 1997, 10 years after his passing, they dedicated a new locker room and lounge in the NYC HQ of the Postal police/Inspectors. My mom had passed a few months prior, so I attended as my family's Representative. The new Section of the building with the locker room and lounge was dedicated to my Dad, and bears his name to this day. I was presented with his 3 Service guns that were paid for by Uncle Sam. His First Colt Diamondback, his Ruger Security Six, and the P-85, all engraved, in presentation boxes, with his dates of service. I needed a few beverages after that....

If I were you I would replace the magazine spring with a wolf spring. Any time you buy a used pistol you have no idea how long the magazine was left loaded. In my experience bad mag springs account for most failures to feed.
