Compact for easy concealment, the Ruger Security-9 is designed to fit a variety of available holsters. It features a rugged construction with black oxide, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel and high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame. Textured grip frame provides a secure and comfortable grip. It also has a precision-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails. Utilizes Ruger’s safe, reliable and proven Secure Actionfire-control system that combines a protected internal hammer with a bladed-safety trigger. Internal, Secure Action hammer provides strong ignition force, yet allows for easier slide racking when compared with many striker-fired pistols. Front cocking serrations enable positive slide manipulation. Safety features include 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.
