The Ruger Max-9 is slim, lightweight and compact for personal protection. It’s striker-fired with a short, smooth trigger pull, clean break and positive reset. It also features rugged construction with through-hardened alloy steel slide; one-piece, precision-machined fire control chassis; and high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame. The slide is optic ready for direct mounting of co-witnessed JPoint and Shield-pattern micro red dot sights. It utilizes tritium fiber optic day/night front sight for high visibility and drift adjustable rear sight. A cold hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity. Safety features include integrated trigger safety, manual safety, internal striker blocker and inspection port that allows for visual confirmation of a loaded or empty chamber. NOTE: JPoint & Shield-pattern micro red dots are NOT included.
