Product Description

What's in the Box

  • Ruger Security-9 Compact 9mm Pistol
  • (2) 10-Round Magazines
  • (1) Finger Grip Extension Floorplate
  • Cable Lock
  • Owner's Manual

Ruger is proud to introduce a new, compact version of the popular Security-9® pistol. Smaller, lighter and more concealable than its full-size counterpart, the Security-9® Compact is ideal for everyday carry with an overall length of 6.5" and weighing in at just under 22 ounces. The attractive price point of both the full-size and compact models will have you wanting one of each.

The Security-9® Compact ships with two, 9mm Luger, 10-round, flush-fit steel magazines, which provide for greater concealability. Also included is one finger grip extension floorplate for added control. 

Firearm Features

  • Compact for easy concealment, the Security-9® is designed to fit a variety of available holsters.
  • Rugged construction with blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel and high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame.
  • Precision-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails.
  • The Secure Action used in the LCP® II and Security-9® is derived from the reliable and proven hammer-fired LCP® fire control system. The Secure
  • Action combines the smooth trigger pull of the LCP® with the short, crisp feel and positive reset of a single action.
  • Textured grip frame provides a secure and comfortable grip.
  • Dovetailed, high-visibility sight system with drift adjustable rear sight and fixed front sight. Sights can be easily changed out for different color
  • options (available separately).
  • 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; external manual 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.
  • Safe, easy takedown with no special tools or trigger pull.
  • Also includes: two alloy steel magazines and one finger grip extension floorplate.

(4 out of 5) This pistol is a great value!
by from Clinton, IA on

This is not my first pistol, but it is my latest carry gun. The grip is very well designed. I find it easier to hold than the Glock 26, and costs about $200 less! The only reasons I do not give this 5 stars`;` the take down pin requires a screwdriver or other similar tool, and you need to be careful not to lose it, and the slide hold-open though easy to use does not allow you to close the slide. Racking the slide is how one must close it. Otherwise its a reasonably soft shooter and has proven to be extremely reliable, which for me has been about 150 or so rounds. It carries very well in my kydex holster. I prefer to use the pinky extension for the 10 round magazine. The optional 15 round magazine with spacer sleeve has proven flawless, so far. That is sold separately.

(5 out of 5) Great little pistol!
by from Kyle, TX on

This was the first pistol I've ever owned. Since I bought it I put about 1500 rounds thru it and had only 1 failure to load and I think I limp wristed it. Perfect for CCW. Eats whatever you fed thru it. What more can I say but absolutely reliable.
 Recoil is about average for its size but easy to get back on target and trigger reset is short also. Perfect for beginners and reasonable prices!
