Released just a few weeks ago, the new Ruger Security 9 Compact was available at the NRA Annual Meetings in Indianapolis and drew a crowd of the curious.
A smaller installment of the company’s Security 9 polymer-framed semi-auto, the Compact version features a 3.42-inch barrel rather than the standard pistol’s 4-inch model. As the new pistol is shorter, it has a 10-round magazine capacity, down from 15 in the full-sized model. Weight is 21.9-ounces.
The Compact’s caliber, weight and magazine capacity put it on par with the Glock 26 while coming off slightly slimmer. Also, unlike the striker-fired Austrian gun, the American-made Ruger is hammer-fired and has an accessory rail.
The pint-sized Ruger ships with two alloy steel magazines and one finger grip extension floorplate with an MSRP of $379 — although we currently list it under $299 on the site.
