About Ruger MAX-9

The company known all over the world as the Ruger, with the official name of The Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is the leading producer of firearms in the whole United States. The Sturm, Ruger designs, produces and markets a full line of various models of pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, mainly for sporting purposes, however there is also several models available for the law enforcement and military use.

The Ruger Max-9 is a single-action, striker-fired, semi automatic pistol developed by Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc., an American firearms manufacturer simply known as Ruger. The Max-9 is Ruger’s newest flagship for everyday concealed carry and even though it was only introduced by the end of 2021, it’s already one of the most popular carry guns ever made.

Shortly after its introduction, it was obvious that the Ruger Max-9 was designed primarily to create opposition and alternative to SIG Sauer’s P365 and to Springfield’s Hellcat models, which had been considered the best micro-compact pistols produced to the date. However, on top of a super compact design and high capacity, the Ruger Max-9 also featured an optics-ready platform. Even though both SIG Sauer as well as Springfield have since introduced their own tactical and optics-ready versions of their acclaimed carry guns, the Ruger Max-9 still ranks among the best CCW guns currently available, especially because of its price tag (MSRP of $579.00).

The Ruger Max-9 is a micro-compact handgun with an overall length of 6 inches and a 3.2 inches long barrel. A package this small in combination with weight of mere 18.4 oz makes the Ruger Max-9 one of the most ideal handguns for everyday concealed carry purposes. Even if you equip your Max 9 with tactical attachments such as red dot sights or tac lights and lasers, you’ll still find concealment of the Max-9 very easy, provided you get yourself a well-made Ruger Max-9 IWB holster.

The Ruger Max-9 comes with a double-stack magazine chambered for the popular EDC cartridge - 9x19mm Parabellum (also known as 9mm Luger). While the base capacity of this pistol is 10+1 rounds, you can extend that to 12+1 rounds of ammo by means of an extended magazine, which is included in the packaging. The pistol’s frame is made of black glass filled nylon, the barrel consists of alloy steel, and the slide is made of through-hardened alloy steel. The pistol’s slide features a black oxide finish. Such materials make the pistol ultra lightweight, yet extremely durable and resistant to all sorts of conditions.

Just like in the case of most modern handguns, this Ruger Max 9 features front and rear slide serrations. In combination with the pistol’s grip composed of high-performance, glass-filled nylon, the Ruger Max-9 becomes one of the most ergonomic handguns currently available. The MAX-9 also comes with a Tritium Fiber Optic front and Drift adjustable rear sights system. If you decide to get one of the best Ruger Max-9 red dot sights, you can easily attach it to the rear of the slide as it comes with a pre-installed optics mount plate. Even though the Ruger MAX 9 doesn’t feature an accessory rail, you can still enhance the pistol’s accuracy through a Ruger Max-9 laser, which you can easily attach to the pistol’s trigger guard. Can't find a tactical light or laser compatible with Ruger Max-9? No worries, just check out our list of the best Ruger Max-9 laser sights compatible with the Ruger Max-9 pistol. However, if you equip your MAX 9 with an optics device or perhaps a tactical light or laser, don’t forget to get yourself a Ruger Max-9 red dot holster or a Ruger Max-9 laser-bearing holster.

The high capacity, extreme compactness and easy concealment make the Ruger Max-9 one of the best everyday concealed carry and service pistols, especially when paired with a custom Ruger Max 9 holster. The pistol probably works best when carried in a Ruger Max 9 inside the waistband holster  or in a custom molded Ruger Max-9 appendix holster. However, as the Max-9 is very compact and hardly noticeable, a Ruger Max 9 OWB holster is also a great option. Selecting the right holster can be difficult, so in case you’re not sure which holster to get for your Ruger, check out our list of the best Ruger Max-9 holsters currently available.

The Ruger Max 9 definitely is one of the best options for everyday concealed carry.
