First Look: Ruger LC9s

First Look: Ruger LC9s

Ruger_LC9s_F1Ruger has introduced a new companion to their popular LC9 with the addition of the striker-fired LC9s.

The Ruger LC9s was designed for shooters who prefer the feel and performance of a striker-fired pistol to hammer-fired double actions. The LC9s maintains similar dimensions and is compatible with all accessories, holsters and extended 9-round magazines made for the LC9.


Ruger's new LC9s also features a familiar blued, hardened alloy steel slide, 3.12-inch barrel and dovetailed 3-dot sights. Its black, one-piece nylon checkered grip frame also maintains traditional LC9 appearance and ergonomics.

While the LC9s retains many characteristics of its LC9 brethren, its striker-fired trigger mechanism boasts a shorter and lighter pull that breaks around 5.5-pounds. The LC9s also uses a trigger safety on the face of the trigger which must be engaged to fire the pistol.


Additional safety features of the LC9s include a manual safety selector, a magazine safety and a visual inspection port for identification of a loaded or empty chamber.


Available for a suggested retail price of $449, the LC9s comes with one 7-round magazine, a magazine grip extension and a soft case.

Look for a detailed review of the LC9s in an upcoming issue of Guns & Ammo and check out the photos (below) of Ruger's new striker-fired LC9s.
