Ruger SR9 (black)

Recommended Posts

Just picked up one.

Nice pistol.

Comes with regular 3-dot sights (rear is height adjustable), two 17 round magazines. Mags are made in Italy and look like Mec-Gar with anti friction coating.

Pistol has a external safety (ambi) and magazine disconnect.

The loaded chamber indicator is on top of the slide and sticks up quite a bit with a round chambered.

None of this really bothers me and the mag disconnect is easy to remove if so desired.

Pistol has good accuracy and is easy to shoot well.

Grip is thinner than a lot of similar pistols.

Full take down requires punches/hammer so not as easy as some others.

Field strip does not require a trigger pull but you must push the ejector down to remove the slide, and either pull it up or insert a mag to raise the ejector back into operational position when reassembled.

Overall a decent pistol and after 600 rounds there has been no pistol related problems

This pistol is as accurate or a little more so than my Glock 48, which I like a lot and carry.

May put the Ruger SR9 into carry rotation.

I really think Ruger erred when they discontinued the SR series. They are really good pistols.

Ruger makes some puzzling product decisions. 🤔
 

I now own 3 Rugers. All have been good values. Pretty much carry one of them everyday.

Can you offer a comparison between the SR9 and G48?

The Glock 48 is thinner and not as tall/long.

I have Concealment Express IWB Kydex holsters for both and the Glock 48 carries so much easier and comfortably.

I carry a extra mag for the EDC I have on. So that is 21 rounds for the Glock 48 and 35 rounds for the Ruger SR9. 

Depends on what you want, less rounds but thinner/lighter or more rounds thicker/heavier.

Still the Ruger SR9 is thinner than a regular Glock pistol.

Both seem accurate to me but that is subjective.

Both also seem to be well made.

I get the Glocks for $380 before taxes/TICS (military program) so pricing is not that far off between them.

Seems like a comparison between the SR9 and G48, is like comparing apples and oranges. The SR9 is more of a duty size pistol and the G48 is a compact.

It is a comparison between apples and oranges, just depends on what you want.

Either one would be fine for SD/HD in my opinion.

Well the Ruger SR 9, in my opinion, is made much better than a Taurus or even many other brands.

The more I shoot it the better I get with it but then again I do that with most firearms.

      Been looking for one of these for two+ years. Finally found a Sig P220 Legion in .45 ACP and brought it home.

      I’m considering one. But, they seem to be scarce in the Nashville area. Are you happy with yours?

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.
