I bought this gun about 8 months ago. When I bought it I couldn't hit a damn thing with it, so I sold it to a friend for the price I bought it for. It's probably the only gun I had bought that I didn't do at least a little bit of research on. Turns out it's supposed to be a government only gun that was not intended for civilian market. So I saw one for sale for $1000. I had paid only 400 and some change with tax. I was almost in tears. I'm buying it back tomorrow, but I can't find much info on this particular gun and I'm afraid that it's really not worth more than I paid. I'm buying it either way but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me anymore about this gun.

I have been looking into this and I don't think a swift tap to the beanbag is called for. I have been seeing allot of these guns going for $400-$600

I appreciate the help

But that's not the gun. It's a P94DC with a built in laser in the frame. The grips are rubber with finger grooves. The rubber grips are actual Ruger grips too. I haven't seen the same pistol anywhere. It's the essentially the same as that one but the laser is what really makes it different. I'm going to contact Ruger first chance I get to find out more about this particular model.

P94DC Integrated Laser

I have just seen this ad from some time ago. I have one of these weapons and purchased it new some 15 years ago. I was told the same, that it was only available to the government. I don't know if that has changed or not, but I have not seen any other since. This is the first instance I have to talk to anyone that has this weapon. I did call Ruger and they tell me that the company that made the laser site system has since gone out of business. I had contacted them in regaurds to making the laser brighter. They said mine was not the first inquiry at that level. I have not to date found anyone that could help with this, but it is still the coolest pistol and I probably would never part with it because of this.
I did not know if you have found anything since your post as to whether what we were told is true or not.
Thanks.

P94DC

I have one of these, I bought it some 15 years ago (not sure) but it was a long time ago. I was told the same as you on all topics, laser weak, supplier out of business, etc...
I would not sell either as this is truly a collectors item and you cannot find them for sale. Just remember to take the batteries out if you are not using as they could leak.

P94DC Integrated Laser

I Have one of these also. The story I have is, They are law enforcement overrun (Law enforcement ordered too many and because Ruger did not make too many they have the right to sell them off.) They made them in Stainless only. Some were covered with a black coating that was salt water resistant that was intended for the Marines. I don't remember what the coating is called. The black guns with this coating cost more. Mine was $630 NIB. This was a once run ONLY special purchase for Law Enforcemant. I talked to Ruger at the 2010 SHOT show, and called all agencies of ruger, Nobody seems to know anything about these. One guy at the SHOT show (Tactical dev.) said Ruger refered this as the P94L (not confirmed if true) The reciever says P94DC

With this postol also in the kit was the introduction of the PC9 which was intended to use the same interchangeable mag, less to carry. The early PC9's were stamped on the reciever " RUGER Police Carbine". This was so successfull for Ruger they continued the run till it ended in 2006. Only the first run 1996 LE destined rifles were stamped Police. My 1996 "Police" PC9 s/n is 407-026xx (the 2400th made). I don't know how many Police stamped were made but I was told not all states got them. Here in neveda when they were new and available, I only seen 2 "Police" PC9's and 6 P94CD w/Laser, 4 Not coated and 2 caoted.

If I figure out how to put pics on here, I will when I have more time. Hope this helps.

P94DC Integrated Laser

I have a P94DC with laser and looking to get rid of it. I just don't have time to shoot it. Does anyone know what it is worth?

This pistol was made to fill a Government contract though finding out exactly which one would be a task.

To a collector it might be worth something on that factor, to anyone who is going to shoot it, $200 - $300 with two mags. To someone who doesn't know diddle it is probably worth $400 - $500 depending on what you willing to sell it for.

It isn't a bad fire arm, but it has some serious draw backs when compared to newer ones which are less bulky, have better triggers and are brand new.

Having a Laser is ok, but not a must have for a range gun...

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

P94DC value

It was mentioned above, but it looks like it's gone down in value. I am seeing them going for $350-500.
