Southport, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is proud to announce the introduction of the all new Ruger LC9s pistol.

The LC9s is a striker-fired version of the award-winning LC9 pistol. Like the LC9, the LC9s is a slim, lightweight, personal protection pistol that is chambered in 9mm Luger.

The LC9s features a newly designed trigger mechanism with a short, light, crisp trigger pull that improves accuracy and performance.

“The Ruger LC9 set a high standard for reliable, lightweight personal protection,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and Chief Operating Officer.

“The LC9s follows the success of the LC9, yet provides a new option for shooters who prefer the short, crisp trigger pull of a striker-fired pistol,” he added.

The LC9s uses the same holsters, extended magazines, lasers and accessories as the rugged and reliable LC9 and features a blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide; a one-piece high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame with aggressive checkering; a grip extension magazine floorplate to improve handling; and a rapid acquisition, windage adjustable, 3-dot sight system.

The compact, 17.2 oz. Ruger LC9s pistol has a 3.12″ barrel, an overall length of 6″, a height of 4.5″ and a slim 0.9″ width. The compact frame and short trigger reach is designed to accommodate a wide range of hand sizes. The LC9s offers modern safety features such as an integrated trigger safety, manual safety, magazine disconnect, inert magazine for safe disassembly and a visual inspection port that allows for visual confirmation of a loaded or empty chamber.

The LC9s ships with one 7-round magazine, a soft case and a cable locking device.

    1. Just purchased a new LC9s.. I am looking for a pocket holster such as the “sticky holster” and info on laser sights. Do you have any suggestions?
      Thanks

    2. I have the LC9S Pro. I love this carry sidearm. Put a Veridian green laser site on it, which is just incredibly powerful, although with my fat fingers I find it somewhat difficult to turn on/off. I bought the DeSantis V5 pocket holster for this set up, and it works perfectly. This is my fav carry setup, by far.

    3. After many years away from shooting, I finally purchased a Ruger LC9S pistol. I find the pistol to be reliable, accurate and comfortable to shoot. I am still waiting to get my CCW so I haven’t carried it yet but when I do I will purchase the Vedder Quick Draw holster. Reviews show the holster holding the pistol high and close to the body. Great rig for a great weapon.

    4. I don’t have an LC9 or any Ruger semiauto pistol, but it looks and sounds good. I currently carry a compact .45 Colt Officers ACP Series 80. Thin profile pistols are important for good concealment. The Ruger seems to limit mass in height and length as well. No doubt too, it is lighter than my all steel Colt.
