Ruger struck a nerve among shooters with the introduction of the Security-9 a little over a year ago. So it comes as no surprise the gunmaker would cook up a little something to go along with the duty-sized 9mm. Just unveiled, the Security-9 Compact comes with many of the same features as its big brother, just in a package all the more easy to conceal and carry on a regular basis.
In all, it appears a tidy little package, weighing in at 22 ounces, boasting a 3.42-inch barrel and coming in at 5.52-inches in length and 1.02-inches in width. The polymer-framed 9mm ships with two 10-round magazines and like the earlier iteration is extremely easy on the pocketbook. With an MSRP of $379, it is most certainly among the most affordable compact polymer pistols around today.

More from Ruger:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) 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. Extended, 15-round magazines are also available for purchase at ShopRuger.com.
The Security-9 family shares the same Secure Action used in the LCP® II, which 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. Additional safety features include an 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.
The American-made Security-9 Compact is constructed around a rigid, precision-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum chassis with full-length guide rails and a blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel. Identical to the full-size model, this pistol also features eye-catching sights, a textured grip frame and an easy-to-rack slide.
