Ruger SR9 pistol is intended for civilian shooters (as a sporting or defensive arm, suitable for concealed carry) as well as for police and security use. SR9 is well suited for all those applications, providing adequate power, accuracy and large magazine capacity for duty use, yet slim and light enough for everyday concealed carry.

Trigger is of double-action only type, striker-fired. Striker is partially cocked during the reloading cycle; full cocking is achieved by the pull on the trigger.

Additional safety devices include loaded chamber indicator on the top of the slide, and a magazine safety disconnector, which blocks the firing once magazine is removed. According to available information, the magazine safety can be easily removed by the user through the partial disassembly of the gun and removal of the safety parts (although this may not be encouraged by user manual). Slide and barrel of the gun are made from stainless steel; frame is made from impact-resistant polymer. The pistol grip is equipped with removable reversible backstrap, which has one side shaped to provide curved rear grip shape, and another to provide flat shape. Magazines are double stack, holding 17 rounds of 9m ammunition. Magazine release button is ambidextrous and conveniently located at the base of the triggerguard. Sights are dovetailed to the slide, with rear sight being adjustable.
