SHOT Show 2017 - Ruger announces the addition of a Compact version in .45 ACP caliber to the American Pistol line
Originally introduced in December 2015, the feature-rich Ruger American Pistol was designed with the latest U.S. Military standards in mind and was tested in the harshest environments to ensure a high level of ruggedness and reliability; the Ruger American Pistol design combines a recoil-reducing barrel cam (which better spreads recoil over time) with a low-mass slide, low center of gravity and a low-bore axis to provide better balance, less felt recoil and less muzzle flip than comparable pistols.
The Ruger American Pistol also features a pre-tensioned striker system, which allows for a short take-up trigger with positive reset, and a modular wrap-around grip system that adjusts palm swell and trigger reach to fit a wide range of hand sizes.
With a 3.75″ barrel, overall dimensions of 7.25″ long, 4.65″ high and a weight of 28.6 ounces, the new Ruger American Pistol Compact model in .45 ACP caliber shares all of the features and rugged reliability of the duty-size gun in a smaller, lighter, more concealable package.
It ships in a hard case with medium and large replaceable grip modules and two nickel-Teflon plated steel magazines (one 10-round extended magazine and one 7-round compact magazine).
The American-made Ruger American Pistol is built on a rigid, one-piece, precision-machined, stainless steel chassis with integral frame rails and fire control housing. Additional features include genuine Novak LoMount Carry three-dot sights, a stainless steel slide with non-reflective, black nitride finish, a one-piece, high-performance, glass-filled nylon grip frame and a mil-standard 1913 accessory rail.
