Security-9? Nein! Well that’s what laser lovers would have said if Ruger hadn’t tapped Viridian to offer a red laser for the debut of their new Security-9 semi-automatic pistol. [Viridian press release below.] The partner choice makes sense. The Security-9 is a budget-priced GLOCK 19 Gen4 alternative ($379 vs. $599 msrp). A Viridian E-Series red laser costs $132. So you can buy a [discounted] Ruger Security-9 with a laser for less than the price of a [discounted] GLOCK 19 Gen4 without. Sold? Or are snout-mounted lasers not your thing?

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -( Viridian Weapon Technologies has released a new E Series red laser sight designed exclusively for the Ruger Security-9 semi-automatic 9mm pistol.

Viridian’s universal C Series and X Series laser/light combos are also compatible with the brand new Security-9 handgun. All laser models, including the new E Series red laser, can be purchased online or at select retailers.

Viridian’s E Series laser sight is made for the everyday conceal and carry owner who demands the most powerful red laser allowed in the United States. Delivering rapid target acquisition when it’s needed most, the E Series is an invaluable component to any concealed carry setup. Like all Viridian laser products, the E Series laser includes an industry-best seven-year limited warranty.

The Ruger Security-9 semi-auto pistol is an affordable, dependable option for everyday carry. With a suggested retail price of $379 USD, the Security-9 features rugged construction with blued, through-hardened alloy steel slide and barrel and high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame.

Chambered in 9mm Luger and utilizing a 15-round, double-stack magazine, the new mid-sized pistol delivers comfortable concealment with twice the capacity of slimmer 9mm Luger pistols. Safety features include bladed trigger safety, manual safety, neutrally balanced sear and hammer catch.

“We’re excited to give Ruger customers yet another powerful sighting solution immediately after the launch of a new product,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “We worked in tandem with Ruger’s new product development team ahead of time to ensure our laser was available right away. When paired with the Security-9, our E Series option makes it the ultimate concealment set-up—delivering powerful target acquisition at an affordable price.”

For Ruger customers seeking even more sighting features, the universal C Series and X Series models offer an easy upgrade. Featuring the brightest green and red lasers, brilliant taclights, INSTANT-ON, CREE LED and multiple modes of operation, the C Series and X Series deliver all the features needed to dominate the day or night.

  1. If this pistol and their matching carbine turns out to be winners, this will be a good year for Ruger.
    Call your stock broker.

  2. alright Ruger chill out with your bad self. First you actually listen to your customers and now you start assisting the guys making aftermarket goodies for your guns. What’s next you gonna start pumpin out mags and letting others use them as a basis for a Glock alternative? You gonna start getting night sights and fiber optic sights made for all your guns? You gonna get holsters made too?

    Me thinks they might actually start getting serious about being a competitor in a crowded field. I’d love to see them eventually put something out that can compete with a Glock and maybe become the next omnipresent pistol.

    • That would be so great. I really like everything Ruger makes, really no bad choices in their line up. Some of them aren’t game changing at all, but over all they’re a quality product at a reasonable price. I would love to see their mags become a second “standard” magazine along with Glock mags.

      I am so trying to figure out who can lickity-split me one of their new 9mm carbines.

      Actually in my mind their only current weak offering is the Ruger American, there was no reason it couldn’t have used the SR series magazine. Or better option, just give us an SR Gen 2 series with the Ruger American features and get rid of the manual safety.

  3. Viridian Lasers do not work in the cold, so beware if you planning on carrying it at temperatures much below 15 degrees out. I have confirmed this with the factory after I made the mistake of buying five of the laser/light 5 and 5XL lights as demos for law enforcement. The laser goes first… then the programing features… then the light. Crimson Trace (and no I don’t work for them) red and green lasers and laser/light combos will work on weapons that have been outside in my truck all night unheated at -30 below F, including the LinQ system. Just thought you all should know.. Great programing features on the Viridian’s and I do keep some and sell some for home defense use.
