Ruger delivers on budget 9mm pistols at SHOT Show (VIDEOS)

Concealed Carry, New Guns, Product & Industry News


A pair of brand new and very affordable semi-auto handguns, the EC9s and Security 9, were front and center at Ruger’s booth in Las Vegas this week.

The new EC9s, a no-frills version of their LC9s series, is a single-stack 7+1 9mm polymer-framed striker-fired pistol with sights machined integrally with the slide. Billed as about an inch taller and an inch longer than the .380ACP-chambered LCP, the newest 9mm in Ruger’s stable tips the scales at 17.2-ounces with a 3.12-inch barrel and 6-inch overall length.

Best of all, the MSRP is $299– though stores will likely pass it on for around $220-ish. This puts the new EC9s in the same size envelope as S&W’s new M&P9 Shield 2.0 and the Glock 43, but at a significantly lower price point.

The newest double-stack in the company’s catalog, the Security 9, has a four-inch barrel and 7.24-inch overall length. Unlike popular striker-fired competitors in the $379 MSRP neighborhood, the Security 9 uses a hammer-fired system evolved from the one found on the LCP and LCP-II line but includes both a bladed trigger safety and a manual frame-mounted safety.

Additional features of the Security 9 include an accessory rail, front and rear cocking serrations and dovetailed sights with various color options available. The alloy steel slide and barrel, aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails, and nylon frame give the pistol a 23.7-ounce overall weight.
