Building off their popular LC9s compact, striker-fired pistol, Ruger has announced the brand new LC9s Pro pistol, which shares many features with the LC9s, but comes without a thumb-operated external manual safety and magazine disconnect.

According to the press release, the all-new Pro version is designed to meet law enforcement specifications as a back-up gun when there isn’t enough time to deactivate an external manual safety. Also, no magazine disconnect safety means easier tactical reloads that allow for the user to engage a target with one round remaining in the chamber and the magazine out of the gun for reloading.

The LC9s Pro boasts a newly-designed striker action that delvers a short, crisp trigger pull for improved accuracy and performance. In addition, this pistol offers 7+1 rounds of 9mm Luger protection. The LC9s Pro uses the same holsters, magazines, and accessories as the LC9s. It also features a blued, through hardened, alloy steel slide; a high performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame with aggressive texturing; a grip extension magazine floorplate to improve handling; and a rapid acquisition, windage adjustable, 3-dot sight system.

Chambered in 9mm, the compact, 17.2 oz LC9s Pro has a 3.12″ barrel, an overall length of 6″, a height of 4.5″ and a slim 0.9″ width. Modern safety features include a visual loaded chamber view port, an internal striker blocker, and an internal trigger safety requires finger pressure on the trigger in order to fire.

The LC9S Pro ships with one, 7-round magazine, a soft case and a cable locking device. MSRP is $449.00. See below for additional details.
