Well, I finally took the plunge and traded for Ruger's version of the Glock. Ruger 9E, pretty much a SR9 without the dreaded loaded chamber indicator. Shot about 100 rounds through it, zero malfunctions. I actually kind of like it. Don't tell nobody though!

I couldn't believe the difference the Talon grips made in the feel, just outstanding. I have not had a single problem as yet, even when I had range time right out of the box as shipped. I agree, after a good cleaning it shot even better.

Congratulations, and I'm sure the 9E will serve you well.

As far as the "dreaded" LCI is concerned, don't tell anyone but many of us, myself included] love it [the LCI]. :)

Matter of fact, I traded my LC9 in on a LC9S. Love the LC9S and don't want the LC9 back ... but I miss the LCI. :( That "dreaded" LCI is a feature that could come in real handy in certain circumstances and doesn't hurt a thing. I didn't buy the SR9C or the LC9S to look at. But I do think both, especially the SR9C, are beautiful regarding both form and functional.

Other than the trigger there is nothing about a 9E that is like a Glock. If you want to know if the 9E is loaded just touch the extractor. The extractor on most pistols sticks out past the slide when there is one in the chamber. The 9E will grow on you, trust me. My neighbor has a 9E. The first few times I shot the 9E the slide felt like a camper shell. Once I got used to the 9E it is a good work horse.

New to the forum, and am seriously thinking about the SR9E. QC wise, is there anything to complain about in comparison the SR9?
Thanx.

It is not quit as fancy has less tooling but IMO Looks better !
You only get 1 magazine not 2 But check out links above you can get 2 mags around 45$
and you get a cardboard box not a plastic case.. I got a Ruger case on E bay w/ pinky extension and mag loader 20$ so with the extra mags and case
(I wanted the Ruger case I'm anal lol) not really worth it! I am around the same price for my E as the SR9 ! Would I buy a 9E again w/1 mag and but the 2 pack of mags Yes, I like the looks of the 9E better! the 9E and SR9 share most of the parts other then the slide. I bought a shooter and carry gun not a show piece :)

My suggestion, go to a local gun store where both the SR9 and the SR9E are available. Handle both. Examine both. Examine what you get for the extra $$. Perhaps even find a gun range where you can shoot both. Ask a lot of questions from several people who own and shoot both models.

By handling and even actually shooting both models you will have a far more informed opinion than you will ever have by just asking people questions. Not to discourage you from asking questions, but a little personal experience takes you where no amount of asking questions every can. You may even want to compare the SR9C with the other two while you're at it. Doesn't cost anything to look and feel.

My 9E is great! Looks nice, shoots great! I sent the barrel back initially due to an inclusion in the casting, but they were good about it. Didn't cost me anything. I sent it back after they sent me a new one. That's the only issue I had with mine. The few malfunctions it did have, I believe we're ammo and user error. I lost track of how many rounds its been shot. Probably around 900. Seems like all malfunctions were within the first 500 rounds also.
I have a Hogue Handall sleave on mine and it fills the hand nicely. A bit bulky for carry though. I might try the rubber Talon grips.
Overall I really like the 9E. It's just a bit big for summer carry.

I had the Pachmayr sleeve on mine
Pachmayr&reg Pachmayr your primary source for quality handgun grips and recoil pads And also think the 9E is a big CCW gun! It carries great in my Alien Gear IWB holster but for warm weather I wanted smaller and lighter so I picked up a S&W 9mm Shield, picked up some Talon Rubber grip tape and after installing the Talons on my Shield I got a set for my 9E WOW big difference with the Talons on,, Like it was made that way,, You will like the Talons :)

I like my 9e but shoots left and rear sight is not adjustable. Ruger says it is by unloosening the set screw and banging the dovetail to the right. But I can't budge the thing.
