I may have given a wrong impression in my article about the Ruger SR9. The Ruger SR9 IS a good pistol, the problem was the particular one I got was the problem. I’ve been told several times that it was “probably a pre-production” model, but I never confirmed this with Ruger.
What shots I DID fire through the pistol felt Great! But, as the story goes; I traded the pistol out for another 9mm.
The Ruger SR9:
I’ll give it to Ruger that the SR9 IS a great looking pistol – sleek and slim! I really did have high hopes for the one I purchased though because I REALLY liked the way it felt.
Don’t get me wrong; I still very much like the Ruger brand. I also on a Ruger P345 too and wouldn’t trade it for nothing! The wife now has that particular pistol.
Now, if I purchased a 2nd SR9 and the same thing happened with that one; THEN I would probably start having a problem and never purchase another one. I still think Ruger produces a fine line of pistols and revolvers! There will be “bad ones” in every bunch!
