Southport, CT –-( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE:RGR) is proud to announce the Ruge SR40. pistol, the latest extension of the SR Series, striker-fired line of pistols. The SR40 now provides a large caliber option in one of the slimmest and most ergonomic fullsized pistols on the market today.

“The SR40 represents the next logical step in striker-fired pistols from Ruger, remarked Bob Gates, Ruger’s Director of Law Enforcement, Military and International Sales. The outstanding ergonomics and value of the SR9R are now available to officers and civilians in the effective and proven .40 caliber chambering. An added bonus is the surprisingly light recoil, which makes the SR40 easy and comfortable to shoot.”

The SR40 is built on the same high-performance glass-filled nylon frame as the SR9, offering all the great ergonomic features that made the SR9 a success: a slim, narrow frame with a short trigger reach, reversible backstrap for an arched or flat configuration, and fully ambidextrous controls.

The through-hardened, stainless steel slide on the SR40 is .060h wider than that of the SR9; the added mass of the slide reduces slide velocity during cycling, reducing recoil and improving service life.

The SR40 weighs 27.25 ounces (with an empty magazine) and ships with two fifteen round, flush-fit magazines. A loading tool is also provided, although an anti-friction coating applied to the magazine body greatly reduces the force required to load the magazines to full capacity.

The SR40 features a 4.1h barrel length, fully adjustable three-dot sights, and an integral accessory rail. The SR40 offers modern safety features such as a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator, striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, and a frame mounted ambidextrous manual safety.

Rev. Chris Reed

I just bought an sr40 and I have already shot it. It is awesome I think. I have a small hand and this is the best fitting gun in my hands I have ever had and I have had alot of guns in my life. Love it so will you.


I'm glad to see this actually made it. I'm just mad that I just bought the SR9 about 3 months ago. If I had known the SR40 was coming I would have waited. I prefer the .40 over the 9mm anyday but the SR9 is a great weapon and very nice to shoot. Always wished it was a .40. Can't really justify buying another one even though they are $389 at my local gun dealer right now. Oh well. Maybe I'll trade in my SR9 but that really isn't my style to get rid of a gun, and on a… Read more »


I just bought one on a gun auction…..can't wait to shoot it. I was a Glock fan, but since I got the SR9, I have to make myself shoot my Glocks because the Ruger is so much more fun and WAY more accurate.
