We have determined that some Ruger® SR9® pistols manufactured between October 2007 and April 2008 could, under certain conditions, fire if dropped with their manual safeties in the "off" or "fire" position. The pistols will not fire if the manual safety is in the "on" or "safe" position.

How to determine if your pistol needs the retrofit:
It is easy to determine if your pistol has been retrofitted by simply looking at it. Although both the old and new trigger group have a two-stage trigger, the original design had an inner "shoe" that was not visible and, therefore, appeared to be a single trigger (See Figure 1). The new trigger design incorporates a visible inner trigger of a blade design (See Figure 2).

New trigger group – Pistol does not need retrofit

If you own an SR9® Pistol bearing a serial number below 30000 (that is, 330-29999 or less) that has not been retrofitted, please contact us immediately to arrange return of the pistol.

Step 1 - Contact us via email at or phone at 336-949-5200 and provide your name, address, the serial number of your pistol, your telephone number and the best time to call.

Step 2 - We will verify that your pistol is subject to the recall and will send you a packing container, detailed instructions and shipping label so you can send your pistol to us FREE of charge.

Step 3 - We will install the new trigger group in your SR9® and return it to you FREE of charge.

Do not load or fire your pistol until it has been factory retrofitted with these new parts! If you must fire your pistol, be sure to keep the manual safety in the "on" or "safe" position except when you are actually firing.

Thank you,
Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

We recognize that this is an inconvenience so, as a thank you, we will include an extra magazine at no charge to you when we return the pistol.
For Connecticut residents (only), we will send you a gift certificate in lieu of the magazine.
