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’m thinking about ordering this gun. But I’m curious about the blued finish and the Ruger site picture really doesn’t show it that well. Anyone have any good pictures of this gun that was purchased recently??

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?
