I like my SR9c so much that I have 2 of them & a full sized SR9 as well. I donít clean my striker channel ďregularlyĒ because it doesnít need it, usually many thousands of rds between striker cleanings. The only tool I use to break the pistol down with is a wooden chopstick to push the takedown pin out, itís in there pretty tight; also have used a small pocket screwdriver to do the same. The SRís are solid guns that donít just break down that often, havenít had to order anything for my 3 examples; havenít had to send any of them back for repair. As far as the trigger being ďtoo lightĒ, do you have a problem with trigger control? The triggers in my opinion are excellent & I havenít had a problem with my SRís. Seems to me you have read many bad reviews/experiences with the SR series. These are mass produced pistolís that sometimes have issues. As far as I know Ruger still supports this series of pistolís & will continue to do so for many years to come. The only way you would ever appreciate a SR series pistol is to actually shoot one. But not everyone is the same. What works for me might not suit you well at all, different strokes for different folks. Iím just here to post a positive review/comment on the SRís because I really like mine. I carry the SR9cís on a regular basis, especially around the house at night with my Olight PL Mini 2 flashlight underneath. I have other options from different manufacturers that I carry as well from time to time but the SR9c is my favorite edc. I suggest renting one to shoot to see if you like it or not...

Mines an SR45 not the 9 and it has been flawless.
Forgot to mention that I had an SR40c for years as my off duty gun and never had to strip the gun down to clean it.

SR40Ohio is on a distinguished road
I've been in quite a few LGS & chain stores over the last few months and noticed that Ruger has very little in the pistol cases. LCPIIs, EC9s in many pretty colors but only in 9mm, Security 9s compact & full sized, SR 1911s & 22. Americans both sizes but only 9 & 45. I don't know why but a l people tend to pan the American but I'm happy with the 9mm model. There's just not much variety in their line up.

I've got an SR40 and love it. I'm hoping to get ahold of an SR9 and SR45 before it's too late. The SR series seemed to be popular and have a good following I don't know why they'd discontinue it without having a solid replacement. Seems to me they could have expounded the line up and offered improved models. I understand wanting to phase the old models out but they should have brought out a new lineup first.

The gun market is improving and Ruger's profits are still lagging versus their competitors. I have a feeling it's because of Ruger's tired and uninspired lineup. I don't know much about their rifles, Savage fan but I haven't heard much new on that front either.

None of that is true except eventually parts may go away. SR40 here with 3500 rounds and cleaned the striker one time and never a failure of ANY kind.

Ruger's lineup includes one of the best-selling pocket pistols made, a sub-compact, compact and fullsize holster pistols in economy and premium lines, a 1911 line, and a boatload of .22LR models. And that is without discussing revolvers.

The SR series was replaced by the American and Security 9 lines. The American is a slightly premium line that had an MSRP of $10 more than the SR. The Security 9 is a totally new economy line.

WOW, now that's quite a bold, broad statement!

Facts to back that up? Or, parameters your basing your "opinion" on?

What's your universe of rifles tested over years and years of experience that would factually prove that statement is accurate?

Just sayin.

Pretty sure I mentioned all the above except for the additional 22s. My point is unless you want a 9mm or .45 cal your stuck going with a competitor. Hey, I did forget about the 5.7 so there's that.

"The SR series was replaced by the American and Security 9 lines. The American is a slightly premium line that had an MSRP of $10 more than the SR. The Security 9 is a totally new economy line."

I wouldn't quite call 2 pistols a line unless you counting colors. I understand they've replaced the SR series with the Americans but to repeat myself the Americans haven't been well received by a good many Ruger fans unlike the SRs and again limited on caliber. If they just want to be kings of the pocket .380s and .22s they're doing a good job. Look at the S&W, Sig & Walther line ups. They have a little something for everyone. Ruger's numbers are their numbers. While other mfgs profits seem to be improving Ruger's income over the year before, which had been down years, is not improving. I'm excited about their pistol caliber carbine but nothing in their current pistol line up makes me want to plunk down any cash

No you're not "just sayin" you're being..............
If you want to read you would know the American series rifles are very accurate. I can attest
my 308 can lay out a 1" group with my hand loads at 200 yards just laying it over a log. Pretty freakin' good for total of $550 in rifle and glass. Just sayin'.

What parts need replacing regularly and most probably in ruger sr9c? From where do you buy them?
After how ,any rounds, do you change recoil spring assembly?
I already shot it and it was good but the slide was hard to rack even though it was an old range gun.
Do you guys have a video on how to disassemble and clean the gun?
I read that gun was having light strikes and
Also the slide on grip extension for 17 round extension was not holding properly?

Recoils springs require the most frequent replacement; after that it is a toss up between extractors, extractor springs, trigger springs, and barrels. Any of those parts are currently available from Ruger and a variety of other sources. Given the number of SR series pistols sold, parts should remain available in the market for the next decade or two.

4K to 5K

Smaller guns have heavier recoil springs to make up for less slide mass.

YouTube has a ton of videos; search for SR9 Disassembly.

The complaints I have read about light strikes were typically resolved by a one-time thorough cleaning of the striker and striker channel.

Rugers have always been great at working with all kinds of ammo. If you have the owner's manual, read what it says about ammo choices. I'm pretty sure lead bullets will be fine as long as they're not loaded to excessive pressures. +P+ is tough on any gun.
