Ruger LC9 Lightweight Compact 9mm Pistol

    I don’t think any of the TFB readers were surprised when Ruger unveiled the Ruger LC9. After the success of the Ruger LCP .380 lightweight compact pistol, a slightly larger 9mm Luger/Parabellum model made perfect sense.

    Caliber 9mm Luger/Parabellum
    Capacity 7+1
    Finish polymre/blue
    Barrel 3.12″
    Overall Length 6″
    Height 4.5″
    Weight 17.10 oz.
    MA Approved No
    CA Approved No
    Sights Adjustable 3-dot sights
    MSRP (Price) $443

    Once nice feature of this gun is that a finger grip extension can be added to the standard seven round magazine. One “mis-feature” is that it includes the dreaded magazine safety hated by so many shooters.
