About the Ruger P85 Pistol
The Ruger® P85 is a double-action/single-action (DA/SA) semi-automatic pistol, chambered in the famed 9mm (9x19mm) cartridge. Built on an alloy frame, the P89 is a combat-tested service pistol, originally designed to compete in the 1984 U.S. military pistol trials. Though the P85 did not receive a military contract, it found immediate success on the civilian and law enforcement markets thanks to its large grip, 15+1 capacity, and standard three-dot sighting system, designed to deliver intuitive target acquisition and optimal clarity in any target or personal defense environment. Further, the P85 comes equipped with a manual safety and a built-in ambidextrous de-cocker for safe carry with a round in the chamber, promising speedy deployment and safe carry in virtually any environment.

Though the P85 is now discontinued (1992), it remains a favorite among collectors, target shooters, and budget-minded personal defense shooters alike.

What Does “SA/DA” Mean and Why Does It Matter?
“SA/DA” is the industry-standard abbreviation for single-action/double-action. 

Single-action/Double-action pistols allow shooters to fire the pistol by either pulling the hammer back with their thumb or racking the slide before pulling the trigger (single-action), or by simply pulling the trigger and forcing the hammer to pull itself back prior to striking the firing pin (double-action).

In simple terms, Single-action means pulling the trigger does one action: releasing the hammer on the firing pin; and the double-action system does two actions:  pulls the hammer back and releases the hammer on the firing pin. The single-action stage requires the hammer to be cocked (manually or mechanically) before firing, and offers a light, crisp pull, ensuring accurate shot placement and improved handling. A double-action pull, on the other hand, is much heavier and requires an intentional pull. With single-action/double-action pistols, the first trigger pull will be a double-action pull and much heavier. As the slide travels rearward, it will automatically cock the hammer, allowing you to fire with a light and crisp single-action pull with every shot thereafter, making the single-action/double-action system one of the most reliable and safest hammer-fired pistol designs in the world.
