U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the addition of the Ruger American Pistol Compact in .45 Auto.

This newest compact model is offered in the “PRO” configuration with no external manual safety. 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 the rugged reliability consumers have come to expect from Ruger.

Ruger polled law enforcement and military trainers throughout the country to select the form, function, and features of the Ruger American Pistol. The resultant pistol 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 Ruger American Pistol Compact model 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.

    I have the full size 45, and have nothing but positive feedback to give. Since may of 2016, ive put about 1200 rounds through it. Never had any issues with cycling or accuracy. I did find the grip a bit to smooth for extended use, so i put grip wraps on it, and now, id say its flawless. Its a great looking gun, great shooting, and very well priced, in raleigh nc, i paid something like 530 after tax. And extra mags come in under 30$ for a 10 round. It would be a bad choice not to buy one.

    I’ve been very disappointed in the Springfield XD series and the S&W shields, I am hoping this will be the solution I’m looking for. As long as it is better than the XD and the shield I will pay what every they want.

    For the full size, i paid 530 after tax brand new. The gun shoots fantastically well. I did end up putting a grip wrap on it and it handles even better. Its definitely become a favorite of mine.
