Ruger entered the striker-fired handgun field in 2007 with introduction of the SR9. A full-featured, compact, lightweight and affordable pistol, the SR series is now a mature design and encompasses 9mm Luger, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. It soon came to include compact models and “State Compliant” variations—10-round magazines in place of the sizes standard in jurisdictions not fully sold on the Utopian Ideal.
Apache Junction, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- Ruger has been making some new types of handguns and one of their newer models is the Ruger 9E Handgun.
It is a full size model capable of 18 shots loaded. The market is saturated with DA 9’S so for one to be commercially successful it has to have some features to offer the consumer. Among them is a reasonable price and reliability.
In 2007, Ruger introduced its first polymer-framed pistol, the SR9. While the pistol had had a lot going for it, a few cases were reported of the pistol firing if dropped on the rear of the slide. Ruger recalled every single pistol and retrofitted them with a new trigger mechanism, and gave each customer a free magazine in the bargain!
