Ruger® designed the EC9s® Semi-Auto Pistol specifically to function with the 9mm Luger cartridge. The EC9s is simple and instinctive to use in stressed situations, utilizing a striker-fired mechanism, with a short, light, crisp trigger pull. Front and rear sights are integrally machined to the slide to provide intuitive target/sight acquisition with incredibly durable sights that won’t get knocked out of alignment. The pistol’s frame is constructed with glass-filled nylon with an aluminum insert; and the grip is checkered to provide a solid, non-slip hold. The slide is made from hardened alloy steel with a matte black finish, and the slide’s sharp edges have been removed for enhanced concealability. Safety features include an integrated trigger safety, a manual thumb safety, a magazine disconnect, and a loaded chamber indicator. The lightweight, compact design of the Ruger EC9s and its simple, ultra-reliable operation make it an ideal semi-auto pistol for concealed carry use, that’s comfortable to carry all day and quick to deploy. Compatible with standard LC9 pistol accessories. Made in USA.
