Is my Ruger P89 9mm defective

Hi folks, I have been shooting my new Ruger P89 a ton since last week when I picked it up. So far it seems to shoot great. The only thing I noticed is my primers seem to be hit by the firing pin off center slightly. After about three hundred rounds it doesn't seem to cause any problems, I just want to make sure it won't cause problems later on. Here is the pic....thanks for any input.

No its fine. Some guns hit primers a touch off center. Unless someone who knows more then I disagrees I say don't sweat it.
E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

Mine does the same thing and hasn't failed me in 20 years.

Very common and no cause for concern.

Keep your P89's frame rails lubricated with a good quality light grease like a white lithium grease. The frame material is aluminum with a very thick anodizing. It is very hard and very durable but also very abrasive. The grease will minimize wear to the slide from the frame.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
