My brother-in-law got a p-95 DC awhile back but we cannot figure out how to field strip it because we did not get a manuel. Please help me out with some info. Thanks, and please do not send this to the trouble shooting area because there is not much traffic over there.

I would recommend you call Ruger - most firearms manufacturers are happy to supply you with a manual on their firearms. I've called both Sig & Glock for manuals and both supplied them at no cost - not even postage.

I know that I could call them but it will take a while for me to get it. Can someone please explain to me now so I can show him tomorrow when I go visit him.

ok, first off take out the mag and pull and lock the slide back. look down the mag well from the top (through the hole in the slide) you'll see a metal strap that needs to be pushed downward & forward in the top of the mag well (you can reach in through the slide to push this peice down) once you locate this part, unlock your slide and match up the small notch on the left side of the slide to the small notch on the left side of the frame (it will be a bit more than halfway back at this point) once you have the notches lined up and that metal strap pulled down, all you have to do (while continuing to keep those notches aligned) is pull out the slide release....and the slide will now go forward and disconnect from the frame after that the spring and barrel come right out (much like a glock if you have one) if not, you'll easily see how the spring and barrel pop into and out of the slide. now just reverse the process to reassemble

On the P95, the slide stop does come all the way, as does the P97. It seems to be this way only on their polymer frame pistols. EagleArmsHBAR, definitely call Ruger and get a manual. They are very happy to provide you with one.
