At the Range: Ruger LC9s

Ruger-LC9s_9mm_F

Introduced in July, 2014 as a companion to the double-action only (DAO) LC9, the Ruger LC9s combines the look and feel of its predecessor in a single-action striker-fired package. RELATED: Ruger Introduces LC9s

The LC9s maintains similar dimensions to the LC9, therefore both guns are compatible with the same holsters, magazines and accessories. However, the biggest difference between the two is the crisp, 5.5-pound single-action trigger pull of the striker-fired LC9s.

Folks who prefer the traditional feel and performance of single-action polymer guns will be right at home with the LC9s. At 17.2 ounces, this gun is a lightweight and portable option for concealed carry, while delivering 7+1 rounds of 9mm.



Frame: Black glass-filled nylon


Slide: Blued Alloy Steel

Capacity: 7+1 9mm

Length: 6"


Width: .90"

Height: 4.5"

Weight: 17.20 oz. (unloaded)


Barrel: 3.12" Alloy Steel 1:10 RH

Trigger: 5.5 lbs.

Price: $449

The LC9s also comes with one 7-round magazine, a magazine grip extension and a soft case. Check out the photos and video below for more information about Ruger's new LC9s.

The striker-fired LC9s trigger breaks at 5.5-pounds and features an integrated safety.
Weighing 17.2 ounces unloaded, the LC9s comes in familiar size and dimensions as its LC9 predecessor.
The LC9s is 6-inches long, 4.5-inches tall and .90 inches wide.
The LC9s comes with one 7-round magazine, pictured here with a grip extension. Magazines are interchangeable with the LC9.
Dovetailed 3-dot sights include a windage adjustable rear and a fixed front sight.
Field stripping of the LC9s is simple, with the removal of the takedown pin.
Unlike the LC9, there\'s no hammer on the rear of the slide.
Those who prefer single-stack 9mm handguns for concealed carry will find the LC9s one of the best choices for a primary sidearm or backup gun.
