Ruger Introduces 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.
