Hello everyone I am new to the PS90 and this forum but I was reading on the fiveseven forum about PS90 firing out of battery. Has anyone heard about this on the PS90? Has the problem been corrected? Any info on this sbuject would be great. By the way I did try a search so am sorry if this has been dicussed over and over. But so far my impression of the PS90 is great. I love it! Thanks

There is some talk about the Five Seven pistol doing this - opinions vary. Never heard of this concerning the PS90 yet. I think things are getting ahead of themselves on some of these issues...

Yah, you have to be careful about what you read on some of these forums. This is why I had asked because I had not seen anything on this site concerning this problem, but I was just curious. Thanks

There was one guy that had an out of battery and he was going to send the gun back to find out the cause. (he was on the Fiveseven Forum). He has not come back to let me know what happened. I also think Mike Hammer at Magazineparts.com (NOT SURE IT WAS HIM OR NOT) that showed a picture of an out of battery.

I find the PS90 functions perfectly. :shock:

That is what I was thinking (RELOADS),but they did not post what type of ammo was being used. Maybe someone else can chime in here? :)

The only time I every had a out of battery discharge was when I shot some 9mm reloads a friend gave me for my Glock 17. After that little experience I no longer shoot reloads.

On the fiveseven forum the guy said he was using reloads but claims that this in no way caused the problem.

So what does cause this? I've never had this or heard of anyone having this problem. I can speculate as to what may cause this problem but I'm sure one of you knows.

An out of battery misfire has to do with the shell not being entirely inside the chamber when the stricer hits the cap, Most all modern weapons have a disconnect that prevents this from happening.

Same here, after you see a Glock go KB, you never want to load up reloads. Once brass is used, its never the same again.

Grandad used to work at Ruger years ago. Daddy always shot Rugers. Both my brothers carried Rugers. I carried a Ruger for years. Luckilly, I've never had any issues with Rugers. I've never heard of a KB with one either (not to say there hasn't been one, just that I haven't heard of one).
I've heard a lot of people say, "With a Ruger, you either get one that is reliable or one that shoots straight. But not both." I've never had an issue with either.
All I know is, don't ever bad mouth a Ruger around my family. That will get you physically ejected from the property faster than yelling "gun" at a Presidential speaking engagement. 8)
Just talking about a Ruger makes me miss my dad... :cry:

The PS90 / P90 will not fire until the bolt has come < 1mm to the chamber. This is how the P90 stops from prematurely firing. This sear is also present in the PS90. You can, however, pull the bolt back away from the chamber once a round has been loaded and fire it out of battery that way. I highly do not recommend doing that as you'll probably blow up your gun and send yourself to the hospital. Grab your UNLOADED PS90 and see how the features work for yourself.

I had an over pressure round blow up a PS90 on me, not an out of battery fire.
