    I bought this handgun when it was about $70 dollars cheaper here at Bud's. It's the budget version of the Ruger SR9 series, but it shoots great, even when fed steel ammo. It comes with only one magazine, so we bought mor...e which also work in our Ruger PC9 carbine. It is my wife's favorite pistol, and she has no complaints about how it breaks down for cleaning, etc. We like its dependability so much that we have since bought an SR9c for conceal/carry which uses the same magazines. We recommend this handgun. more

    This is a nice 9mm that fires and thus far runs any ammo i pit in it. Its high capacity and thats a nice plus since i live where more ten round mags are just fine. Easy to disassemble clean and put back together. And its... just an all around nice little gun. more

    Good bang for the buck. I paid $270. I've had this gun for appx 8 months now and put a little over 400 rounds of varying weight/manufacturer range ammo thru it with "zero" malfunctions of any kind. Accuracy is "on par" w...ith several other full size 9mm's I own and the trigger feel is actually better than my smith M&P's. As a bonus the females in my family actually enjoy shooting this particular full sized handgun (they say the grip fits there small hands better than my glocks/smiths?). I'll take whatever gets them out to the range lol. For the price I paid this is an incredible bargain for a full sized American made 9mm and the only reason I bought it was the price and I had not yet owned a full size Ruger pistol. This won't be my last Ruger... more

    This is a great product. This was actually my first gun purchase and I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend it for first time buyers/shooters because of the ease of use, simple take down and rebuild, perfect amo...unt of kick, etc. Never understood the reasoning behind buying a $500-600 gun when something like this is available. more

    Bud's had a deal on this I couldn't pass up. Shipping was fast. Took the 9e out to shoot and results were 200 rds with no failures. Good feeding, good ejection, crisp trigger. I've shot most modern polymer striker-fired ...guns and this Ruger is right up there with them at $100s less. Grip is very slim, so some may not like that, but it is comfortable, no sharp edges, and no controls whacking your thumbs. Safety is out of the way and no issue. For a 17 rd, duty pistol, this carries better than most thanks to skin grip. Definitely a good full size carry option or truck gun to always have on hand. more

    This is the best full size 9mm Pistol for the money I have ever seen. It feels great in the hand and isn't ugly like a Glock for about $200 cheaper.

    The short story; this American made Ruger is outstanding! If you're looking for a very good 9mm semi-auto pistol, look no further. I bought it new, took it to the range, fired 200 rounds with no issues, and with minimal ...recoil. I haven't purchased a new gun in several years. IMO, considering Ruger's current look, quality, and pricing, you'd be challenged to find a better value. more

    I recently bought this handgun at an incredible price, and I absolutely love this pistol. I had just purchased the Ruger 9mm American Luger Striker-Fired pistol not 2 weeks before I found this SR9E 9mm. I actually shoot ...the SR9E better from 30'-45' at my local range. This pistol has very clean lines; no hi-tech appearance whatsoever. I've fire between 500-700 rounds through this pistol without one single jam. The takedown/reassembly is not as simple as the American Luger, but that has no bearing on the gun's performance. I highly recommend this SR9E to any collector/shooting enthusiast. The safety is an excellent feature on the SR9E that is absent on my American Luger Striker-Fired 9mm. If you have the opportunity to test fire the SR9E at your local range, you will soon be shopping for this pistol. more

    COME ON RUGER. I expect better from you. Even on an economy pistol. The dang safety is turned up so as to catch ones fingers when racking the slide from the rear. It is a design flaw. The lever should be turned down so a...s to allow ones fingers to slide over the safety instead of being bitten by it while working the slide. The safety can NOT be deleted from these firearms. It is a good shooter and will process steel and aluminum cases well. If one is looking for an economy firearm to up your firearm count AND you are ok with the funky safety......then this is for you. more

    I purchased this handgun for plinking and target practice. Priced below $300, I was not expecting much. However, I am really pleased with the smooth operation of this gun. Unbelievably accurate and holds 17+1. In my opin...ion, this is the bargain of the year. I would easily put this gun up to the likes of higher priced guns. My son and two other friends shot this nice gun and they all feel equally positive about this pistol. more

    Ruger SR9E: first gun ever, great gun, good price and not a hiccup after 300 rounds (only use American eagle). My wife has a little bit hard time to rack (probably it's so new.) Fun to shoot and very accurate for a novic...e shooter like me from 7 yards away. Feels great in the hand. Would buy another Ruger. more

    Just to start off. I LOVE MINE. You can't beat it for the price. I have shot about 75 rounds thru it. Sights are on mark. Groups the shots Very Well. Light weight. Easy to handle. Recoil is Light. Shooting 124 Grain FMJ.... and a Few 115 Grain FMJ. Slide is a little stiff but it being new . I would expect it. Then I took it home and cleaned it and put a coat of oil on it . Guess What? it works a LOT better. Over all GREAT little weapon. No Problems or mishaps. Great out of the box Pistol. I don't need all the fancy machining. It's perfect for me. Thanks . more

    I've always been a wheel gun guy, this ruger sr9e is my first pistol and after running about a 100 rounds down range I absolutely love this gun. Out of the box it shot low to the left, low was me, left was a slight drift...ing of the rear sight. It's now dead on accurate and hasn't had a single hiccup. Ruger makes a simple and solid gun, very easy to take down and clean. It feels good in your hand and seems to be well balanced, and ya gotta love that 17 round magazine. I was going to spend the extra cash on the sr9 but I actually like this 9e better, fit and finish is flawless, shoots very well and recoil with 115 & 124 gr ammo is very light, much less than I expected. I am very pleased with this gun and the current price at buds. I would highly recommend this 9e to anyone, great gun! more

    First purchase with Buds and will not be my last, fast and easy. When I received my pistol I field stripped, cleaned it and a little CLP. 300 rounds (115 FMJ and 147 gold dot) so far and not 1 malfunction. The price keep...s dropping and will purchase a second, best bang for the buck! Not sure why Ruger discontined the “E”, it appears to be an improvement over the std SR9. Aftermarket sights are an issue. Cant get a straight answer on replacements. Novak cut seems to be the concensus, but others have had issues fitting them?? As far as a holster, try Glock 17/19 Holsters. more

    This is a model Ruger was phasing out, so don't expect a Ruger American; this was the dumbed down version, and I sold mine. It actually is a pretty good gun, but mine came with a defect: it failed to extract on every sin...gle shot. I got it on Fri, and sent it to Ruger on Mon. It came back, repaired, but still needed a lot of break-in to make it work. You get what you pay for, and this is not a CZ. However, once I got it broken in, it was very nice. I sold it primarily because it had a single-stage trigger (ugh), and I need two-stage triggers, as this was for use in pistol classes. The trigger was very nice, just not suitable for me. The gun was also very accurate. I would give it 4 stars, but not when it won't shoot right out of the box. more

    There's not a better deal out there
    I purchased a Ruger SR9 so that my wife would have something she could shoot comfortably for home defense. After a couple of shooting sessions, I really liked the feel, accuracy, and reliability of that pistol and wanted... one for myself. The only true negative was the loaded chamber indicator, as it protrudes from the slide excessively when active. The 9E has all the positives of the SR9, with no l.c. indicator, rather, it has the chamber viewing window machined in the barrel hood. Since the slide of the 9E has fewer--and in my opinion unnecessary--machining operations performed on it at the factory, the consumer saves money. The only negative aspect of the 9E when compared to its SR9 parent is the oxide finish on the slide, but in the days of Cerakote, Gunkote, and Duracoat, that's an easy remedy. Also, on both pistols, the magazine disconnect is easily removed, and SHOULD be removed. It renders the pistol useless should the magazine fall out, and it can damage the pistol if fired enough with the magazine removed dry firing practice with no magazine is a no-no. The 9E shoots just as accurately and reliably as my wifes SR9, and the price of the 9E was fantastic, on sale at $250 during the 2017 Black Friday festivities. Even at the regular price of $280-300, its a great deal. more

    The Ruger 9E has been great so far. I've only put two rounds through the gun, but has performed great. Please be advised to oil or lubricate the pistol before shooting, it does not come pre- lubricated. Well at least min...e didn't. It only comes in the box with one magazine, so you may need to order another one. Overall great weapon for such a low price more

    I'm a big fan of Ruger. I've owned a SR9 for almost 10 years and it is one of my all time favorite 9mm guns. The SR9E is every bit as good as its more expensive sibling. Ruger made some cosmetic changes to the slide, cha...nged the sights, ditched the plastic case for a cardboard box, and included only one magazine. The result is a savings of about $150. Mechanically the SR9 and SR9E are identical. Same grip frame, same fire control group, same magazines, same recoil spring assembly, same barrel, etc. The SR9E has everything that makes the SR9 a great gun. Personally I think the changes to the slide make the SR9E better looking than the SR9 (especially the removal of the loaded chamber indicator). Ruger recently discontinued the SR9E, so if you've ever considered picking one up, do it now! The SR9 is a great gun, and the SR9E is just as great but cheaper. What's not to like? more

    This is an amazing value. This pistol is solid, for the price you can't really get a better pistol. The only other full size handgun at this price range that I could recommend is the SD9VE. The only downside about the SR...9E is that it only comes with one magazine. But the pistol itself is awesome. more

    Received 9E on 1-12-2018 and went to range 1-15-2018, first time fired, brass did not eject out caught by slide, clear weapon and fired again and same thing happen. This went on for about 20 minutes. The most could fired... was 2 rounds before hang up. Well maybe ammo try different ammo same thing. After trying 25 rounds at almost single fire shooting, came home contacted Ruger, Ruger sent prepaid shipping label to return for repair. My new Ruger SR9E is on its way to Prescott, AZ. When I receive it back will go to range and try again, hope better rating then. more

    I ordered the Ruger 9E on a Saturday night and on Wednesday it was delivered to my LGS. With the FedEx tracking I knew where the 9E was every step of the way. Kudos to Bud's for the quick service. Though I have several R...uger handguns, this is my first 9mm. I like the way it feels in my hand. It shoots well. It is easy to carry in the Mitch Rosen holster (bought it for my SR45), so I saved $75 not buying another holster and so ordered two more magazines. This is a terrific firearm at a great price. more

    Very happy with the price and quality of this purchase. 9e is the definition of a duty pistol. Fed every type of ammo except one: the field and stream brand 9mm Luger. I had a few FTE's with that ammo, and it only comes ...with one mag (as advertised) so that's the reason for the 4 stars. Other than that, I have zero problems with accuracy, the durability and the quality of this Ruger firearm. Definitely a solid purchase if a sig or a glock are out of your price range. more

    Purchased this weapon for $296.00 on Oct 21, 2017 so noticing I should have waited a month to save an extra $27 is frustrating. First day at the range I fired two shots and hit center mass the next shot the 9e jammed a l...ive round. Cleared the jam fired it again once then jammed another live round. After this happening 9 times I called it good. Called Ruger and will return for repair. Impressed with their responsiveness to fix the problem. more

    Excellent gun. Went to the range with my buddy who had a Glock 17. Shot them side by side and my Ruger 9E was just awesome to shoot. Trigger was superb. Much better than the Glock's. The Ruger has a great feel to it. Ver...y accurate. I think even the recoil was less than Glock's. At the end of the day I was proud of my decision to purchase this firearm. more

    As usual, quick delivery from Bud's - Pistol arrived at FFL a few days after ordered - Field stripped the pistol and gave a quick cleaning (I love the easy, no tool disassembly method). Went to the range and had some rou...nds jamming.... Called Ruger Service Department and they sent out a new 17 round magazine. Cleaned the pistol again and this time used Tetra gun grease on the slide... have since fired 400/500 rounds without a problem... I don't think it was a magazine problem - - - I must confess, in my haste to fire the pistol, I may have failed to give it a proper cleaning and oiling which is a must on all new guns..... Originally the pistol impacted a little to the left - this was easily corrected by loosening the set screw and tapping the rear sight over a bit.... dead on at 7 yds & 15 yds. The SR9E differs from SR9 in a few areas: no chambered round indicator - slide has fewer serrations and slide top is squared rather than rounded..... OK, but it shoots great, I am very happy with this pistol and would highly recommend it. Definitely a five star. Semper Fi more

    The ordering process was easy and the item was delivered promptly. After receiving the Ruger SR9E I took it to the range to try it out and was very happy with the way it handled and how it fired. I would strongly recomme...nd this gun. more

    For Buds review I could not have been a happier customer. This was actually the second time I've purchased firearms and they were multiple product orders both times. They not only arrived in a timely manner but there was... absolutely no damage or missing accessories everything in order. The SR9 pistols shoot absolutely amazing. The wife and I put close to 500 rounds total through ours right out of the box. Simply put every time we pulled the trigger it shot without fail and smoothly. Nice for concealed carry. more

    Great gun for the price, and also shoots like a gun priced hundreds of dollars more. The action is good, cleaning is simple, and the balance is incredible. The only negative I have found is that there was no type of spee...dloader included. I should have checked beforehand, because when I received the gun and took it to the range, I had to load the clip by hand-no fun! Accuracy is comparable to my Glock at 25 yards, and the recoil is similar. The grip fits my hand better, so it's easy to control any drift. I recommend this gun, especially to a beginner. more

    i bought this as a truck gun. i have a kahr i was using for that but would rather have something less expensive in case it gets stolen. the quality of this gun for the price surpassed my expectations. i have other handgu...ns that cost more and are better quality in some aspects but for a sub $300 dollar gun this is a bargain. it has a safety....and a light smooth trigger and large ammo capacity. it shoots as accurate or more so than my skills, the trigger is smooth enough to surprise you as to when it breaks and i have had no jams. if your in the market for a full size 9mm that functions reliably and arent looking for a heirloom piece i dont know how you could go wrong with this gun for the price. more

    First off, this is not my first purchase from Buds and for sure won't be the last. I picked up my SR9E just a few days after ordering from my FFL. The next day I took it to the range to sight it in and no adjustments wer...e needed it was dead on right out of the box. I put about 200 rounds down range that first day without any problem at all with several types of ammo ,even ran a couple mags of steel case through it just to see what it would do. This pistol will eat anything you feed it and at a price anybody could afford. in my opinion you can't afford not to buy this one. there is only one down side to the whole thing, it only comes with one mag but I did pick up a pro mag from Midway for $18 which is quite a bit less than the Ruger branded mag and it works perfectly. I prefer a full size handgun and this one will be my new carry weapon,,,,,,,,, more

    Right out of the box the SR9E was comfortable. The weight was very good and the grip fit my hand. I have fired 200 rounds of Win 124gr at 50 yards and was immediately about to make my 9in clanker's rock consistently. Thi...s firearm is one of my favorites and Buds Guns was great again. I did a layaway on this firearm and had no problems with Buds. I will be doing more business in the future. Thanks Charlie G more

    Ruger SR9E 17+1 9mm 4.1" bbl Bought Aug 2017 - I have several Ruger semi-auto's, old school (metal frame) and new, and I am really impressed with this gun. I've put about a hundred rounds through it of various types with... no problems of any kind. Accuracy is fine. Although the bore is not smooth by any means - looks like it has scratches going down it - it shoots plenty accurate so who cares? I honestly don't give a flip. This is the first striker fired I've bought with a thumb safety and I like it. I feel safe (not wreckless) carrying it with a round in the chamber and on safe, and it comes off safe easy enough but not too easy - it's just right. While it holds 17 round mag's without any sticking out it's just a bit smaller than most high capacity 9mm's. I really like the size. I have a RAP Pro Model in 9 that does appear better made on the inside, but I would actually rather carry this one (concealed). The elevation is right on for me at 25 yds but I need to adjust the windage just a bit. It is adjustable for windage on the rear sight. The RAP slide does go back on easier due to the different design of the slide stop, but that's OK with me. Also, the RAP is rated for continuous +P (overpressure) ammo if desired, the SR9E is not rated for continuous use of it. But once again, that's OK with me. more

    Buds did an excellent job as usual getting the gun shipped and in my hands as soon as possible. I read reviews on line and was pleased to see they were accurate in staying the performance of the weapon. The trigger pull ...is a little heavy at 5.5 lbs, but very manageable. I shot 100 round through it and had good patterns. I'm not the best shot, but at 7 yards I was getting 3 inch groups with 10 shots sets. I'm pleased. more

    My wife's first gun- she chose it after trying one at the range and loved it for the obvious reasons: little recoil for a 9mm, easy to rack, hits everything she aims at and fairly easy to break down and clean. She scored... 100{abca342ff5b644a3b48a073b708dff914fd9c653e6175cd4d8b08dda63916a07} on her concealed carry range test with this gun and beat me soundly- as she routinely does on the range. Solid, well made gun that is well suited for anyone with those requirements and I like it so much that I bought my daughter exactly the same gun for Christmas last year. more

    For the price, you can't beat this Ruger 9MM. Shoots straight and accurate, went through 200 rounds the day I received it..no jamming whatsoever (each box of 50 was a different brand of ammo as well). If you're looking f...or a quality 9MM and don't need all of the extra bells and whistles associated with higher priced options, then this is the gun for you. The only con I have against it...buy the magazine loader for it because you will wear your fingers out loading it. As for the service from Bud's..top notch. They kept me updated on everything from purchase to delivery, and had it down to Florida in 2 days after I ordered it! Thanks guys! more

    First time buyer, I was amazed how this company works. I had my order in the 90 days layaway and it worked fir me perfect. I took it out a month ahead. I was motivated when they arrived at my chosen dealer, fast and in o...ne piece. Excellent weapon, just like advertised.The slide released a little hard for me because I'm new at this but after a few minutes playing with it I had it no time. I will be buying again and again. more

    Received in perfect condition with one 17 mag, pistol chamber Lock, Ruger Sticker and instruction manual. The overall look and feel of the weapon is smooth. It feels much like holding a 1911 to me. It is easy to field st...rip and the only thing I don't like when field stripping it is having to push the bullet ejector down in the chamber to remove the slide. Its no means a deal breaker on this weapon for me I just don't like it. You must also remember to raise the ejector once you reassemble the slide or the weapon will not function. My advice to you if you use your finger to push down or raise the ejector inside the chamber when disassembling or assembling is that you use your thumb to push up on the slide lock while your finger is in the chamber. I test fired it to include rapid firing the weapon using Tula, Federal and home re-loads without any problems at all. The weapon is thin for use of a double stacker magazine and the trigger pulls easy to me. If you want more mags with this weapon as I did at the time Buds has a Ruger two pack for $45 which is a great deal considering one usually cost $30 or more. Processing and Shipping was 10 days from purchase time with check by phone to my Dealer. My overall opinion is that the weapon is a great buy!! Your turn!! more

    This gun is a tank. It's no lightweight but the ergonomics are good, natural feel in hand. Chamber indicator, 2nd mag, and a few serrations on the slide are not included as they are with the non-e version. But that's goo...d...no need paying for what isn't necessary. Most importantly, it fires whatever you put through it without a hiccup. And the heft of the gun makes for low recoil. I carry it using a paddle holster and love it. And 17 1 capacity to boot. more

Ordered from buds and received it fast. Went to the range the sr9e I purchased was just as accurate , comfortable to shoot , my trigger has the slightest amount creep but not much,all in all it was identical to his , which is almost unbelievable for a economy production model handgun. This is the best in all categories ,accuracy ,ergonomics,functionability , that I've ever seen. 5star rating and would highly recommend it to anyone. more

    Great, inexpensive range firearm. Of course, received quickly and painlessly through buds and my ffl. Put 500 rounds (blazer brass) through it in one afternoon, not a single jam or failure. It is a very light pistol, I'm... afraid even the smallest bump (off a bench to the ground) would render it inoperable. Performs with the least recoil I've felt in a 9mm, and is great for practicing at the range. Took me a while to get used to, but that's bound to happen with a new firearm. I wouldn't rely on it as my daily carry (too many small, plastic, fragile looking moving parts), but I strapped a small surefire tac light to the rail, and it stays by my bed when not at the range. Fun and great value for what it is. Can't expect the world at this price point. Safe shooting! more

    This pistol was a great surprise. I thought it would shoot ok for a $300 gun. I have a few other 9mm pistols and was quite surprised at how accurate and fun it was to shoot. My Glock shoots better and I believe it is mor...e reliable but his Ruger pistol is a close second. Actually, it is more fun to shoot. I put 100 rounds through it with one malfunction but I believe I limp wristed that shot. In my opinion, it is reliable and fun to shoot. more

The seventeen round firepo...wer also is a plus. shoots accurate and at point of aim. Simple to take down and absolutely recommended. The gun feels comfortable to all my family members.

    Ordered the gun on a Sunday received it on a Thursday. Thanks Bud's!! Fit to finish the gun is very well made. I had a little problem with the trigger not returning to battery while dry firing. I took the slide off and a...pplied a little Tetra gun grease to the trigger area. This helped! Friday i took the gun to the range and shot 200 rounds thru it using Winchester, Federal and PerFecta ammo. No problems at all. the gun is one of the most comfortable 9mm i have shot. The PerFecta ammo was not all that accurate but the Winchester and Federal was right on target. more
