The Ruger SR9 is perfectly sized to be comfortable and controllable with a slim, ergonomic grip and narrow slide. Featuring a short reach from the backstrap to the trigger, the SR9 creates a comfort level that will challenge any standard-sized, striker-fired pistol available today. The structurally rigid, recoil-reducing, glass-filled nylon frame and stainless steel slide combine to create a low-maintenance, rugged and reliable handgun. The SR9 packs all of the features required by today’s most demanding shooters, including modern blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, plus a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator.
The Ruger SR9 complies with this line of thinking, having a trigger pull that measures around 7-1/2 pounds, with an overall travel that is approximately one-third of an inch. A trigger like this is a good idea for a fighting pistol. It is neither too light, nor too heavy for shooting quickly at combat pistol distances.
The Ruger SR9 has a magazine safety, which is located inside the slide and has the option of being user deactivated. When inserted into the pistol, the magazine pushes the active magazine safety upward, allowing the striker to hit the primer of the chambered cartridge.
A welcome feature of the Ruger SR9 is that it contains an ambidextrous thumb safety. Many striker driven pistols do not possess a manual safety, which can be unnerving for those who do not always keep their weapons holstered. There is also an internal striker blocking safety, a loaded chamber indicator and striker cocking indicator.
