Back in December, I attended a three-day rollout of new Ruger products at Gunsite a month before they were officially launched. The speed strips are easier to carry, but the speedloader is much faster to use. The textured frame is manufactured from high-performance glass-filled nylon with an integral accessory rail for a light or laser. The Speed Six was also sold to Commonwealth countries, such as India, unlike to previous models. Photo: Ruger The Security-9 is roughly the same size as a Glock 19, falling in size between a sub-compact and full-size pistol—the most popular size with the vast majority of shooters. After lubing the new pistol, I fired another 800 rounds.
It would seem to embody some important trade-offs. The end result was that the frame did not fit some hands and upon recoil it moved enough in the hand when shooting heavy loads to slow follow up shots, but not as much as you would think. Also notice that they are now making a 4. Highly contoured and rounded in the right places, the grip has plenty of real estate, particularly up high. Due to some police agencies specifying the cartridge, the Service Six was introduced with a patented sprung cylinder ring to engage with the 9mm round which was rimless. Speed Six The same barrels as the Security and Service Sixes, along with a unique for the Sixes compact round-butt grip and some models were chambered for the.
You can find them at most gunshows and shops. It needs a little resistance to open, and the cylinder provides that. You get a nice trigger, but the components may not last for as many rounds as would a more expensive gun. Cutaway indicates relationship between assembled parts. They never were meant to be or used as a range gun but they served their purpose well. In the field, trigger guard plunger may be depressed by rounded head of hammer strut. Big difference than guns cast from pot metal.
It is comfortable, easy to rack the slide, and is good for folks with smaller hands. So here is a side-by-side comparison of specs: Model: Ruger Security-9 Glock 19 Chambering: 9x19mm 9x19mm Length: 7. Thanks for the great discussion and review! The magazine release on the left side worked well for me, and I manipulated it with my thumb. When replacing mainspring assembly, position mainspring seat 45 with offset hammer strut hole to rear. Tighten in vise, as before. The Triple K Carrylite is designed for those big, large-frame, meaty revolvers like the Security Six.
If you read the review, the grip is stated as a comfortable grip, better than a lot of others. In 1975 they brought out the stainless model. The slide has a blue finish and is through-hardened alloy steel, as is the four-inch barrel. All Security Six and its subsequent models were sold with a choice of fixed or adjustable sights. I short stroked the reset a time or two when shooting. A bladed trigger safety is virtually de rigueur on a polymer-frame pistol. The same applies to the Police Service-Six, which is merely the Security-Six with fixed sights.
The Monogrips are the perfect size to fill your add and add an additional level of roundness to the gun. Speaking for myself, this pistol fits my hand almost ideally. The molded finger grooves are comforting and ensure you have a nice and high grip on the gun. But that smaller-framed gun is a little light for pleasant 357 Magnum shooting. Safety features include a bladed trigger safety, external manual safety, neutrally balanced sear with significant engagement and strong spring tension.
Pull rear of trigger guard 57 downward and remove from frame. They rectified this in 1972 with the introduction of the Security Six and Speed Six revolvers, building both of regular blued, carbon steel as well as their proprietary Terhune stainless steel. I know that some people scoff at the idea of a break-in period, but in my experience, it does occur. Replaced the guide rod and spring with a 17 lb steel Galloway Precision and HiViz front and rear sights this made a good gun great. The sight discomfort aside, I found the Security-9 to be an accurate pistol. All parts may then be separated.
This makes it an inexpensive way for responsible folks to carry an adequately sized gun. An interesting design as they rotate opposite of the commonly found speed loaders; so that the rotation of the loader does not push the cylinder closed. There is a thumb safety lever on the left side of the frame. The only thing I would change about the Security-Six or its brethren is the ejection stroke. The barrel is a machined forging and the cylinder, which rotates to the left, is machined from bar stock. Additionally, both share the same cylinder retention design where the only thing that keeps the cylinder from coming off the crane is a small frame stud.
