    This is a thread were I will, with your help, try to gather an overview of the SR pistols. It is slightly easier than other model series, as the SR's are stil new. Any information that should be included or sugestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Common information for SR pistols. cal 9x19mm, stainless slides (some black), Polymer (nylon / glassfiber) frames, adjustable sights, ambidextrous thumbsafety,



    [b]SR9[/b]
    Catalog ID slide / Frame mag cap. Misc
    SR9FP Brushed / Black 17rd First Production gun [size=85](feel free to ship to me...)[/size]
    SR9 Brushed / Black 17rd
    KBSR9 Black / Black 17rd
    KODBSR9 Black / Green 17rd

    [i]note 1)[/i]
    All SR models also have a variaton with the prefix ""-10-L"" added to the catalog ID. Thes are given a mag cap of 10rd. So far I asume that this is for practical purpouses nd not realy different models except for the magazines.
    [i]note 2)[/i] Therewas a safety isue recal from ruger, for the first production of SR pistols. So there is basiclly 3 variatons of each model. Early production, late production made with upgradedsafety feature and early models with retrofit triggers.
    [i]note 3)[/i]
    The first 2000 SR9s were catalogued as SR9FP, with the FP standing for First Production. They came with a very nice CRKT knife that was inscribed with SR9 First Production.

    [b]SR9c[/b]
    Catalog ID slide / Frame mag cap. Misc
    KSR9C Brushed/Black 10rd comes with a 17rd mag and gripextender
    BSR9C Black Alloy / Black comes with a 17rd mag and gripextender

    [i]Note 1)[/i] The ruige webiste states the black SR9c slide is made of Alloy steel, but the all black regulkar SR is made off through hardened stainless steel.
    [i]Note 2)[/i] The SR9C also have variatons with the added -10-L for those states where high cap mags are not legal.

    Hassel,

    A couple of comments:

    the 10-L designation was for those guns shipped those states that don't allow magazine capacities greater than 10 such as california, Massachussets, Maryland, etc... I don't know all of them but a bit of research will get the right list.

    The first 2000 SR9s were catalogued as SR9FP, with the FP standing for [b]F[/b]irst [b]P[/b]roduction. They came with a very nice CRKT knife that was inscribed with SR9 First Production.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks a bunch BB45C
    I have added your information. With regard to the 10 round limited capacity versions i asumed that was to states with mag cap limitations. Question is if those variatons should be cosnidered as ""different"" from the regular version in any way (For collecting purposes) they do have different model designations, but I asume that is to simplify ordering and such.

    I'll get in the SR9c ASAP, anything i should be aware of there?

    The SR9c is a great gun. I have had mine for about 3 weeks now and it has already become my carry gun. It is everything the SR9 is...simple, slim, handy, accurate...in a compact frame.

    First time out to the range, I shot close to 200 rounds, without a single hick-up. It shoots great. The trigger breaks crisply with absolutely no gritty feel to it and the trigger pull is not too heavy at all, much better than the post-recall SR9s. Recoil is very manageable with quick follow-up shots. It shoots really great.

    I did not shoot it for target accuracy at 25 yards, but rather shot it at 10 yards for function and ccw accuracy. I ran 160 rounds through it with no issues whatsoever.

    I found my slide release to be very tight but, on the other hand, I had no major issues with either of the magazines being stiff, I was able to load them up quite easily. I also ran 8 full mags through it with my 8 old SR9 mags, fed and functioned like butter.

    I really like the front slide serrations and the finger extension, they really add to the handling and functionality of the gun.

    My only real ""gripe"" is that it would nice for Ruger to include a set screw in the mag sleeve, like A&G does, so that the sleeve doens't move up and down on the full size mag.

    The SR9c fits perfectly in my Milt Sparks Summer Special IWB holster for my Glock 19.

    Great gun, I am very pleased with mine.

    :D
    I have allready ordered one from the Norwegian distributor and if the gods are willing, it will come with the next shipment from ruger (Wich is like 2 or 3 times a year... :cry: ) I have to sell my CZ 75 compact to get a license for the SR9C, but I like the basic SR so much I think it will be worht it.
    The last guy who could carry for self protection in norway died in the early 1960ies, and new liceneses are not given... Or partivulary needed. Fortunately the Norwegian IPSC organization has a national shooting programe for smaller autos and revolvers called ""civilian gun"" that allows us to com,pete with them, and therefore aquire them. :mrgreen: (I shoit the snub revolver class with a 9mm speed six & moon clips. Sweet... more on that later in another thread)

    Has anyone seen or used the Ruger Mark 1 [url=http://airsoftgunsupply.com]Airsoft Guns[/url]? I am an avid airsoft player and I like to use the old ruger style pistols for simulation.

    Actually a ruger airgun section might be interesting for the forum. Questions about them have very little to do in the thread unfortunately.

    But the good thing is that i was remindend about this thread... I guess i should ad the SR40 to the list. And also that i am very happy with my SR9c.

    Btw... did anyone read my article about the SR in the magazine?

    Need to update this one too...
    Seems like ruger has made a difrence in the mag release on new versions of the SR. The first ones were round, but the ones now pictured on the ruger site have a slightly triangular one, same as the compact.
    '
    As for shooting SR's, I seem to get the best accuracy out of 115gr bullets and loads. Noticably better than the 124gr loads i usually use in 9mm
