Saw it this morning on the Shooting Wire, it will be another fine option for everyone that defensive carries.
I'd be interested in actually holding one. That grip extention for the 17rnd mag looks a little curious. But, it does address one of the major problems with the SR9, namely grip length.The SR9c compact pistol weighs in at 24 oz. and features an overall length of 6.875", a height of 5.00", and the same slim 1.27" grip width as the full-sized SR9. It comes with two magazines that provide options in both capacity and grip size. The standard magazine holds 10 rounds and features a flat bottom butt plate; a finger grip extension floor plate is also included. The second magazine features a grip adapter and holds 17 rounds, instantly transforming the smaller, compact grip into a full-sized 9mm grip. The 3.50" barreled pistol features an integral accessory rail that accommodates most lights and lasers.
The SR9c compact pistol utilizes the same adjustable, high-visibility 3-Dot sight system as its full-sized predecessor, setting it apart from many compact pistols that rely on fixed sights. New serrations are located on the front portion of the slide, making it easier to both manipulate the slide and to press check the chamber. The SR9c is available with a glass-filled nylon frame and through-hardened slide in either a brushed stainless or blackened finish. State compliant variations are available where necessary and ship with two 10-round magazines.
Just like the original, full-sized SR9, the SR9c is loaded with modern safety features like 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.
Shipping January 15th
I hope it works for them.
If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
Train hard, live easy.
Hmmm im wondering on a price and when its out. I mean truly out not when they say :)(I saw Jan 15th but does that actually MEAN Jan 15th lol)
But Ruger still hasn't fixed the peening problem. One person in the link below wrote "Mine was peened so bad in less than 150 rounds it would hold the slide back.". I think he meant to write "would NOT hold . . .", but you get the idea.

I like the looks and specs of the SR9, but Ruger has had at least two years to fix this problem, but nothing. Instead they come up with a new model.?. That tells me they're primarily concerned with sales and not quality. There are better options out there.
Im waiting now..IF this has a GOOD price on it and not a year waiting list like some "new" guns do this may just be what I finally sell and or trade my Glock 23 in on. Ive said for a year and a 1/2 why dont they make this full size SR9 into a compact and they finally did.
Will it be possible to pocket carry the SR9c? It is a bit bigger than the Glock 26, so if anyone owns a Glock 26, do you think it is possible or is pocket carry out of the question?

Why is it 2X the weight of a PF9?

Why dont they just make it the size of an LCP? ala Kahr PM9

Held one today here is my thoughts
1) it is virtually the same size as the XD9 3.8
2) it was priced for $450.00
3) the mag extension has a spacer on it that slides way to much up and down when the mag is out of the gun.
4) It is a smaller version of the SR9 only that the barrel is shorter. it does come with a smaller mag that similar to the XD9sc
but for me and this is my opinion i would put a little more money with it and get the XD9 3.8
Ruger LCP 380
NAA 22 mini mag w/holster grip
S&W 38 model 10
$450 wow thats a nice price i hope someone here gets one so I can check it out....that may be worthy of my Glock 23 in trade :) . Plus where did you see it for $450 is this gonna be the "going price" or was that a "way low" one????
Gallery of Guns has them listed at $459 but they are all allocated.
