The SR9 from Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc., appeals to both left and right-handed shooters featuring an ambidextrous manual safety and magazine latch. The rigid recoil-reducing glass-filled nylon frame features a reversible backstrap allowing owners to quickly customize the size and feel of the grip, without separate inserts or use special tools. The slim, ergonomic grip features a 17-degree grip angle and three 22 lpi checkered panels providing a sure grip without being abrasive. The rear sight, part of the low profile, high-visibility, three-dot sight system, is click adjustable for elevation. Both front and rear sights are drift adjustable for windage to put shooters on target with any choice of ammunition. The Picatinny rail accepts firearm-mounted lights and lasers. Safety features include a 1911-style ambidextrous manual safety, internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, plus a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator.
