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.

      I’ve never been a trigger snob and until getting an M&P Performance Center with an absolutely terrible trigger, I never used an aftermarket trigger in a semi-auto pistol. Never needed one really. But I wanted the M&P C.O.R.E. Performance Center gun to be a good range target gun. So I had to replace the Trigger. I used an Apex 100-B54 Sear & Trigger kit. The total for the trigger, assembly blocks and shipping was $223.35.
       The Apex was, by far, better than the S&W Performance Center trigger. But in my opinion not the magnificent day/night trigger I read about on the forums. I’m not saying its not an excellent trigger, but its not a “breaks like a 1911 trigger”. At least not like my 1911’s.
      So after buying my M&P 2.0 Compact 4” I kicked around the idea of adding a trigger. At the time Apex was about the only option for the M&P. Now I have stumbled onto Overwatch Precision Triggers. They cost more than an Apex. I have no idea how long they have been around, but it makes me wonder why they are priced higher than the Apex? Are they better or is it a marketing ploy?
      Anyone have one?

      Got tired of staring at the thing...they are surprisingly easy to shoot without a brace and woo-wee what a fireball...but the triggers suck...tons of phillips screws look dumb, and lets just face it having a brace makes aiming easier...however one huge advantage to these is weight...3.4lbs stock....I still need to weigh it but even with the added kit I think im still at 5lbs or less....I got some other plans for later but im happy with its direction.

      Well, after building the 1892 Winchester in 357, I guess I got horned into 357 and just had to finally spring for a nice wheel gun. My taste is in S&W but I want a nice handling range gun and the K frame is just right as not being too heavy. Besides I carried a M10 S&W as a duty gun for 18 years and became fond of my qualifying scores with that action. Problem is, I think S&W has been giving the shooting public the screws on their K frame magnums for a very long time. Frame cutting, and burned throats aside, That I can understand but I draw the line at poor barrel shank design. Iv seen a few K's with bore bulges just forward the barrel shank threads inside the frame mouth. Its ugly and should not happen. Reason being, they stop the barrel treads into a "root diameter" opening cut of the shank rather than stopping the threads into thread OD. Taurus correctly decided long ago that they would correct this deficiency and that is one main reason why I bought a 669 rather than a 66 S&W aside from the $$$ difference. The barrel cylinder gap on the Taurus is perfect at .004. It needs a trigger job and a forcing cone hone that I figured would be needed but all in all, this particular Taurus 357 is going to be a very sweet shooter. Its a bit beefier in the frame than a S&W 66 and the finish is exceptional for the 5 bones even OTD on a GB purchase.
