I have a Ruger P95 9mm that cost me $300 out the door brand new. I have over 10k rounds through it and it's never jammed. That was 4 years ago I think. I imagine you can find them for a similar price today, maybe a little more. I've always kept it immaculate but I've never replaced any springs or anything.
Despite me having more powerful, accurate, and aesthetically pleasing pistols today, I still shoot that P95 like a champ and it "feels right" in my hand, and it never misses a lick. I've even shot several hundred rounds of really hot +p+ ammo through it and it's been no worse for wear, have shot thousands since then.
