Ruger Expand their Security-9 Pistol Line with New Pro Models

    Ruger have announced the addition of full and compact size Pro models of their 9x19mm Security-9 expanding their ‘Pro’ range of guns. The Pro Compact has a 10+1 capacity and a 3.4in barrel while the mid-sized frame Pro has a standard 15+1 mag capacity and a 4in barrel, it also weighs in a couple of ounces heavier at 23.8 oz.

    The new ‘Pro’ pistols follow on from Ruger’s expansion of the Security-9 range back in April, when Ruger launched the Ruger Security-9 Compact.

    Here’s Ruger’s announcement:

    Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce the Security-9® Pro and Security-9 Pro Compact pistols. These Pro models maintain many of the same advanced features of the popular Security-9, but are offered without the external manual thumb safety. Security-9 Pro models also ship with three alloy steel magazines and factory-installed steel tritium night sights.

    Like other models of the Security-9, these new Pro models include internal safety mechanisms such as an integrated trigger safety, neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension, and hammer catch to help prevent the hammer from contacting the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled.

    The Security-9 Pro is constructed around a rigid, precision-machined, anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails and a blued alloy steel slide and barrel. The ergonomic grip-frame is comfortable in the hand and features a medium texture. The internal hammer and Secure Action trigger provide a short, crisp feel and positive reset.

    The Security-9 Pro holds 15+1 rounds of powerful 9mm Luger ammunition with a mid-sized frame and 4″ barrel. Weighing under 24 ounces, and measuring just 5″ tall and approximately 1″ wide, it is the perfect size for your holster or a day at the range. The compact model shares the same features in a smaller package, holding 10+1 rounds in a flush-fit magazine and weighing under 22 ounces with a 3.40″ barrel (15-round magazines are also available on ShopRuger.com). Both models are ideal for everyday carry.
