Ruger Introduces the LC9

Ruger has responded to the voice of consumers with the LC9.


Responding to their Voice of the Customer program, Ruger has announced the creation of the LC9.

The LC9 resembles the LCP as it is a compact, lightweight, double-action-only 9 mm pistol with a 3.12-inch barrel. Weighing on 17.1 ounces with an empty magazine, the LC9 is 6-inches long, 4.5-inches tall and .9-inches wide.

On the heels of the overwhelming and on-going success of the LCP, customers repeatedly requested a lightweight, compact 9 mm pistol. Frankly, they wanted an LCP chambered in 9 mm" said Ruger CEO Michael Fifer. "Delivering an American-made, compact 9 mm that provides the same legendary Ruger reliability as the award-winning LCP, LCR and SR9 became our focus. Meeting customer expectations is our goal and key to Ruger's continuing success."

The LC9 comes with one seven-round magazine with two interchangeable floorplates. The flat floorplate aids in concealment while the fingergrip floorplate provides more surface for contact. It also comes with highly visible three-dot sights, a single-sided manual safety and a magazine disconnect, and the slide locks open on an empty magazine.

I had been carrying a XDM 9m and wanted a smaller gun to carry concealed. The trigger does take an hour or so to get used to, but had no problems after that. My LC9 came with the Laser Max option and after a little time I am hitting with in a couple inches of where the laser is pointing. Overall a good conceal carry gun for the money.

Had to get used to trigger, but for once I found a gun noones been able to outshoot me with. No problems even out to almost 30 yards.

Have an LC9. I don't recommend it because of the long trigger pull.

Purchased the LC9 after carrying my SR9c for a few months. Long trigger pull makes for sighting in a little difficult to get used to. . As with any firearm the trigger pull makes the difference. But same Ruger dependability and durability as well as a great CCW. Thin light weight construction with an easy full flow Ruger design. Kutos...

I was an early owner, late January. I have over 500 rds. through this gun without a single fail to feed or fail to eject withat least 4 different ammo brands. It groups consistently but not spectacularly. Just about what I expected. Easy to carry although I'd prefer the punch of my Kimber UC.

I've got a LCP and love it but the new LC9 isn't worth a flip - - In order to hit around the belt line you have to aim at the head - - The rounds go all over the place and I tried 3 different brands of ammo and they all shot about the same - - I took the thing home, cleaned it and put it baxk in the safe until I can get rid of it - - I qualify every year with an XD9 and always shoot 238 to 240 out of 240 so I find it hard to believe the poor accuracy of the LC9 is just me!!!

just got an LC9 this week, shot 2 clips through it today, with no problems. A little gun with a big punch. I like it.
