Variety is a key concept that Ruger believes in.

Variety is exactly what the company is giving its fans with the new Ruger LC9s Pro pistol.

Based on the LC9s, a compact, striker-fired, 9mm pistol that the company released in July of this year, the LC9s Pro contains many of the same advanced features, but is offered without the thumb-operated external manual safety and magazine disconnect.

The all new Pro version is designed to meet law enforcement specifications as a back-up gun for high-stress situations when there may not be time to deactivate an external manual safety. The absence of a magazine disconnect safety also is a benefit for tactical reloads that allow the user to engage a target with one round remaining in the chamber and the magazine out of the gun for reloading.

Like the LC9s, the LC9s Pro features a newly designed striker action that delivers a short, crisp trigger pull to improve accuracy and performance. The LC9s Pro offers 7+1 rounds of 9mm Luger protection in a slim, lightweight pistol.

The LC9s Pro uses the same holsters, magazines, and accessories as the rugged and reliable 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.

Weighing just 17.2 ounces, the compact Ruger LC9s Pro has a 3.12-inch barrel, an overall length of 6 inches, a height of 4.5 inches and a slim 0.9-inch width. The compact frame and short trigger reach are designed to accommodate a wide range of hand sizes.

The LC9s Pro offers modern safety features such as a visual loaded chamber view port, an internal striker blocker, and an internal trigger safety which requires finger pressure on the trigger in order to fire.

The pistol ships with one, 7-round magazine, a soft case and a cable locking device.

The Ruger LC9s Pro retails for $449 and is available now.
