If it looks familiar to you, it should. Ruger’s newly announced EC9s 9 mm pistol lists the same specifications as the very popular LC9s, with a couple of notable exceptions. The most obvious is that the EC9s features sights that are machined integrally with the slide and feature glare-reducing rear-face serrations. A second, less-tangible but highly desirable feature that has a correlation to those new sights, comes in the form of an MSRP that is about $200 less than the LC9s. At $299 (with actual selling price expected to be a bit less), it puts this 9 mm striker-fired pistol in the same price range as Ruger's .380 LCP pistol, while only adding an inch in height and length to the compact model. Width on the EC9s remains at .90”, as does its weight, at 17.2 oz. The pistol ships with one magazine, which also feeds the LC9s.
