It's a nice little gun. Shoots well and is reliable. That said the trigger is horrible. Need any more info?

Thanks MM. Reliable is a good quality, as is shooting well. The trigger pull thing will need some looking into.

Thanks.

Ed

I've had mine for the last year now. One of my absolute favorite guns! Liked it so much that I got the SR9c for carry. I'm not sure about the other poster but my full size has a BEAUTIFUL trigger. Tested at 3.5 lb consistently. The compact was a little stiffer but after i polished the trigger bar it was almost as smooth. The only problem I had with it was that coming straight from the Ruger there were some burrs on the slide release that I had to file down. All in all great gun though. Shoots straight, never jams, and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. All I can ask for from a gun.

FYI the trigger is the newer type. Ruger recalled them early on because of AD's and retrofitted them with the Glock style trigger safety.

Thanks GrthWhytHype,

Sounds like you are sold on that gun. I'll need to find one to eyeball and try the trigger.

Thanks again.

Ed

I find the triggers on Ruger SR series pistols to be quite nice.

I have the SR9c. I'm pretty impressed with it. It is one of my two carry guns.

I have an sr40 and i like it a lot. Didn't want to chamber a round the very first time I went to shoot it, but have had no issues since putting a couple hundred rounds through it.
