I havent seen any at dealers. A friend of mine bought P85 or maybe P80 a month back from a relative.
Heard one is available in Islamabad and asking price is 350K. Ridiculous price.

SR85? Is there any Ruger Pistol with that name???

I've heard of Mauser rifles with the "SR-" initial, as well as the SR9, Ruger's first polymer-framed pistol... Maybe you are talking about Ruger P85???

Yep Kage you are right. There is no Pistol by that name. Typo error.

The Ruger P85 is a robust, well-made, reliable gun, built like a tank, though a bit on the bulky side.

I'd advise you to stay away from the SR9, even if you find one, at least for now. Earlier versions had problems and were recalled by Ruger. Though I admit, it does look like a fine, slim, 9mm polymer....

Apart from Accidental Discharge problem, its also ammo sensitive as reported by Gun Digest team. Research thoroughly before making up your mind.

I for some reason never liked Ruger semi autos. Unless of course you get one for the same price as you would in the US.

For 350k there are 10s of better options I can think of. But if you want it, you gotta have it right? :)

I have shot an SR9. A friend at the range bought one and brought it to practice. Former World Shoot Champion Ted Bonnet and I both were very pleased.


I really liked it.

The grip was very comfortable, the grip angle was good, the trigger was nice. The slide is small and it has a low bore axis. That combination of low bore axis and small frame reduces the felt muzzle flip.

Ruger had/has a recall for a manufacturing error which would allow the firearm to fire when dropped with the safety in the "off" or fire position. It was still drop safe with the safety "on." They have correct it and models just out of the factory are not demonstrating the problem.

Like MHMalik, I was never a fan of the Ruger handguns. I found them overly large, boxy, uncomfortable, etc.

But I think the SR9 is a winner and I would consider buying one.

Here are a some reviews:
