Ruger Introduces the New Security-380 Lite Rack Pistol

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the newest addition to its Lite Rack™ family of pistols, the Ruger® Security-380®. Chambered in .380 Auto, the Security-380 is full-featured, ideally sized, and modestly priced.

The American-made Security-380 is constructed around a rigid, precision-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails and features a blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel. The lightweight slide features a vertical ledge on the steel rear sight and a bright fiber-optic front sight for rapid sight picture acquisition. Designed for new shooters, those who struggle with racking traditional slides, and anyone looking to enjoy a day at the range, the Lite Rack system includes refined slide serrations, pronounced cocking ears, and a lighter recoil spring to ensure easy manipulation of the slide.

Unlike many micro-compact .380 pistols, this new offering will accommodate a full capacity, 10-round flush fit magazine. Some models of the Security-380 also ship with an extended, 15-round magazine that extends the grip for a secure and comfortable hold. The textured grip fills the hand and helps distribute recoil better than a narrow single-stack pistol.

The Security-380 combines Ruger’s safe, reliable and proven Secure Action™ fire-control system with a variety of safety features, including an integrated trigger safety, external manual safety, neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension, and a hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled. The trigger has a short, smooth trigger pull, clean break, and positive reset.

The all-new Security-380 Lite Rack pistol is designed for hours of range training with minimal fatigue. The combination of easy-to-use features and reduced felt recoil will help recoil-sensitive shooters build skill and confidence at the range, and its lightweight and compact size makes it comfortable for all day carry. The Security-380 is based on the reliable Ruger Security-9® platform and is compatible with most of the same holsters, lights, lasers and accessories available on ShopRuger.com.

How does it compare to the S&W EZ? Spring pressure to cock the gun with the hammer or slide?

I was going to get a Ruger LCP Max, to go along with my LCP II in .380 & .22 LR. Now I’ll just get this one. 10 & 15 round mags, can’t be beat.

I also love the fact that Ruger has not, at least as of yet, jumped on the .30 Super Carry Bandwagon. Now if they only would make one of their Carbines in .45 ACP, Glock mags, and LRBHO. That would be Great!!!

How does Ruger stay in business? Is this going to be another jamamatic like the LCP series where you send it off to Mayoden, NC multiple times so the parts changers there (no actual gunsmiths on site) can put in a new slide, barrel, or other part, and falsely declare it fires 30, 40, or however many times without jamming before sending it back to you? Between mailing labels, ammunition expended in testing (IF such actually occurs), and new parts such as barrels and slides, I don’t see how Ruger makes a profit. Maybe there are more people who buy… Read more »

I own a few Ruger firearms, and honestly have more failures due to defective ammo than any problem with the guns. I keep every cartridge that fails to fire, and it’s surprising to some people as to which brand holds the title to, “Most Likely to Fail”. Sometimes it’s difficult to assign blame, like the time I bought Federal and Winchester 38 Super ammo and didn’t check the specs to find that the ammo isn’t powerful enough to operate the pistol. Sometimes the primer doesn’t ignite the powder. One brand of 5.56 had bullets that would unseat during loading. Some… Read more »

Hi Jay! While I have had and seen occasional ammo failures over the years, the ones I have experienced with smaller Ruger plastic guns were by far, mostly gun related. In this day and time, there is no excuse for releasing of a gun marketed for “defensive purposes” that will not feed a variety of hollow point ammo. Even so, my problems persisted with ball and hp types of ammo. Ruger’s legendary quality and customer service from decades ago, is no more.
