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.
