Ruger SR9 Holsters

Introduced by Ruger in October 2007, the SR9 was intended to be used for civilian carry, self defense, and law enforcement. As Ruger’s first attempt at a striker fired pistol, the SR9 has a pre-set trigger similar to Glock’s “Safe action”, meaning the striker is partially cocked during the reloading cycle, and then fully cocked when the trigger is pulled.

The SR9 has a steel slide that is available in a brushed or black finish. The frame of the Ruger SR9 is fiberglass-reinforced nylon making it lightweight and durable.

Like many of the newer style pistols; the Ruger SR9 has a removable backstrap that allows the shooter to adjust the size of the grip. This model also features a picatinny rail for mounting lasers and flashlights, along with an ambidextrous manual safety, loaded chamber indicator and striker indicator.

Like many Ruger pistols, the SR9 has a magazine disconnect, so the weapon cannot fire without the magazine in place. Ruger has also noted that if the SR9 is dry fired without the magazine in the gun, it will cause unnecessary wear to the striker block. Should you not like the magazine disconnect feature, it can be deactivated by removing the disconnect link.

On April 9, 2008, Ruger launched a recall on the SR9 due to the possibility that the weapon could fire if dropped with a round in the chamber while the safety was off. Ruger has designed a new trigger group that eliminates that problem and will most likely be retrofitting most all SR9 models.

Although the recall has impacted sales, the SR9 has received favorable reviews and should be another successful pistol in the Ruger line.
