Ruger‘s Security-9 has always been a pistol for the economically-minded shooter who wants protection. Affording the owner everything you might need with security, the common and cheap 9mm cartridge and packaged in an intuitive, affordable firearm. While this pistol might not have fancy bells and whistles, it checks all the appropriate boxes for a reliable and practical sidearm.

To further improve upon this simplicity and success, Ruger now is shipping the Security-9 with a Viridian E-Series Red Laser. Viridian, the laser manufacturer from Minnesota, has garnered a reputation for their high-quality green lasers, but also offer red for users who prefer that color and cheaper option.

The complete specification listing for the newly packaged Ruger Security-9 with a Viridian E-Series Red Laser can be read below:

  • Factory-Installed Viridian® E-Series™ Red [635-650 nm] Laser ( 1/2 Ounce Weight; Battery Installed; Securely Mounted to the Rail & Trigger Guard; Ambidextrous Push-Button Activation)
  • Compact for Easy Concealment & designed to fit a variety of Available Holsters & CCW Options
  • Rugged Construction w/ Blued, Hardened Alloy Steel Slide & Barrel & High-Performance, Glass-Filled Nylon Grip Frame
  • Precision Machined, Hard Coated Aluminum Chassis w/ Full-Length Guide Rails
  • Textured Grip Frame provides a Secure & Comfortable Grip
  • Dovetailed, High-Visibility Sight System w/ Drift Adjustable Rear Sight & Fixed Front Sight
  • Bladed Trigger Safety & Manual Safety

  • Overall Weight: 24.3 Ounces
  • Twist Rate: 1 in 10” Right-Hand, 6-Groove Rifling
  • MSRP: $439

The MSRP of $439 for a solid 9mm with a laser is an appealing attribute aside from the dozen other points Ruger makes. Another interesting point about the Security-9 is that uses the same Secure Action system that is found in the LCP II. It is a hammer-fire control system that offers a smooth trigger pull even in double-action. Ruger offers a final statement for consumers on their NEW Ruger Security-9 with a Viridian E-Series Red Laser:

The reliable and affordable Security-9® is now available paired with a factory-installed Viridian® E-Series red (635-650 nm) laser. The adjustable laser module weighs just ½ ounce with the installed long-lasting battery and comes securely mounted to the pistol. The laser also features ambidextrous push-button activation. This low-cost option is ideal for increasing accuracy in low light conditions.

    I've never seen a Ruger 9mm outside of a store, ever.

      @Andrew D - AllOutdoor If the person is responsibly carrying concealed, why would you see it? Where I am at there are a very large number of Rugers sold of all kinds.

    I'm thinking I want one.

    Sure, Brand X fanboys will be coming in nitpicking this to death, with solutions that don't come in the same box, and cost near twice the price. But even at full MSRP this is a hell of a deal.
