The Ruger Security 9 bares more than a passing resemblance to the LCP II. Even though the action behind the weapons are not the same, the Security 9 does indeed look like an LCP II that has been increased in size and made to chamber and fire the 9mm Luger caliber. With fifteen rounds of 9mm in the magazine, the Security Nine features a slide release, manual safety, and magazine release on the left hand side of the pistol.
It does use a double action only configuration, but the trigger is still relatively lightweight at only around six pounds. Ruger also sells the Security Nine at a very low price, so those who are not able to afford the American would still have an option for a Ruger semi-automatic 9mm pistol.
