USA – -( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly introduces four new products to kick off the summer: the SR1911 Officer-Style in .45 Auto; Security-9 with Viridian E-Series Red Laser; 10/22 Target Lite with Red and Black Laminate Stock; and Ruger 77/17 in .17 WSM with Green Mountain Laminate Stock.

The new SR1911 Officer-Style pistol chambered in .45 Auto features a shorter, 3.60″ barrel and shortened grip frame that makes for an ideal concealment pistol. Compared to the SR1911 Lightweight Officer-Style, the steel frame on this new model retains additional weight for better balance, lower recoil and greater durability.

The reliable and affordable Security-9 is now available paired with a factory-installed Viridian E-Series red (635-650 nm) laser. The adjustable laser module weighs just over ½ ounce with the installed long-lasting battery and comes securely mounted to the pistol. The laser also features ambidextrous push-button activation. This low-cost option is ideal for increasing accuracy in low light conditions.

The new 10/22 Target Lite is a top of the line offering from Ruger. Featuring the BX-Trigger with a light, crisp 2.5-3 pound trigger pull weight and a cold hammer-forged barrel tensioned in an aluminum alloy barrel sleeve, this new configuration is paired with a red and black laminate thumbhole stock, and should appeal to shooters looking for performance, reliability and style.

Following on the heels of the successful reintroduction of the 77-Series bolt-action rifles, Ruger now offers the Ruger 77/17 chambered in .17 WSM with an 18.50″ stainless steel barrel and Green Mountain laminate stock. Flat-shooting and superbly accurate, this rifle also features an improved trigger pull over previous 77/17 WSM models.

When are you going to make a mag that will work with the 6.5 creedmore , the mags for the american series work fine with 308 based cartridges but the creedmore is a two shooter at best . Better yet , sell the new style stocks that take acis mags , to us loyal customers that bought our rifles too soon .I truly am impressed with the performance of this rifle / cartridge combo . Living in northwest Kansas we have the open range land to test the limits of a rifle and it hasn’t disappointed me ever accuracy wise… Read more »

looking to make a few design changes and make a ruger into a model -57 (.41 magnum),have 10 older super redhawks. but I hate to mess them up. with a cylinder and barrel change and above all else the best trigger to work on in the west.absolutley will not modify any of my bisley vaquero’s ,they tend to shoot a bit low but all bullet holes touch .on second thought I found a s&w model 57 in the bottom of my gun safe ,its 30 yrs old but was only fired 8 times during deer season ,think it took a… Read more »

I wonder if Ruger’s 77/17 lives up to the accuracy potential of the .17 WSM cartridge?

Dennis Bechtel

out of all the rifles I have and shoot my ruger no.1 rifles are the most accurate I have except for a couple of really heavy cooper rifles I acquired 37 yrs ago. my m-77’s are still great shooters but not in .22 or .17 wsm at least not yet.guess im gonna visit several gun shops and maybe a few online also.theres an older .22 hornet model 77 ruger for sale at the flea mkt if barrel is ok ill take it home.

Armand Brunelle

I would like to see a 10/22 22 mag.

Walter Abernathy

Yes!!!! With a 20 inch barrel and scope mount. Keep the crows out of a garden.


Less power than 5.56 or 7.62×39 and ammunition costs 2x as much. I don’t think it’s something more than a few people might want.
PC9 model done as a 10mm might be good, but not mini.

Steven Sarasky

It has been my experience as a shooter for 20 years. .have owned many different guns polymer guns are garbage. Pistols jam .best bet Ruger SP101 or any Ruger revolvers. No jams no plastic crap .although I prefer old S&W REVOLVERS can’t beat them own 7 %100 dependable

Fredrick S Arnold

With the # of crazies and Zombies out there these days, IMHO the day of only 5 shots is about over. Sadly bks I like carrying a .357 SP101 too.

norm nowakowski

I want a PC .45acp please All my other guns are revolvers . except my .45 acp

When are we ever going to get a true gas-operated 10mm carbine? The 40’s are okay but they’re all blowbacks. The 10mm in a carbine would FLY off the shelves if done right. Pullease?

Danny Miller

I have the SR1911 in 10mm and I’d love to have a 10mm carbine to go with it. Maybe something like the 44mag carbine Ruger made briefly back in the 70’s. That would be a great combination to have and I think it would be popular considering the resurgent popularity of the 10mm.

Danny Miller

Mini 14 in 10mm would be great too. Maybe with 16 inch barrel.

Out of Pistol Carbine a 10MM round, (yes it would cost more for ammo) with a 16″ to 20″ barrel using Liberty Ammo 60grn @2400fps or Underwood Ammo 155grn or lighter wgt. @1500fps+ from a 5in. barrel would put that round in the neighborhood of the 556.

See the TNW Aero Survival Rifle – 10mm… NICE!!!
…or you could just settle in the middle for a MP5/10, it’ll still hurt ’em like hell.


Try a Hi-Point. They just introduced a 10mm version. They have had the 9mm and I have one in .45 acp…bought it just for carrying in my truck…bought some 14 rd mags made by Mec-Gar. Works like a champ. Cheap Red Dot site, held a 5″ group multiple times at 100 yards – with my own loads!I imagine their 10mm is probably the same in terms of weight (kinda stout) and it does take some getting used to. But, it shoots well, is accurate, and firing 185 grain JHPs in a .45 acp model, I doubt anyone would fail to… Read more »

Hi-Point makes a pretty good 10mm carbine, I have it and the 9mm, both are great little shooters and believe it or not they are also very reliable ! I haven’t had any problems at all and they were not very expensive either. They are great fun !!!!


KS I have a 995TS too. It is very reliable with 10 round mags. I found that if you clip 2 mags to the stock they spit rounds when you shoot. Also the sights are too low (or the stock is too high). In the end I bought a Beretta CX4 Storm 9mm. Now that’s a great carbine for the price!

Barry Wilder Sr

Please how about 22cal lcp and lc9 frame in 22lr you will sell a boat load!!! A pocket rocket in 22cal what the world needs now!!!!

Kenny Smith

I also think that would be a great idea .22 cal LCP , I have one in .380acp now and it is a great little gun, not the best for accuracy ,but I didn’t buy it for that anyway ! I have a Beretta .22 cal with flip barrel in all steel. no poly at all, that is a great little shooter and it is about the same size as my LCP so I think it would be a fantastic idea. Please build one Ruger, I know I would buy one, at least.


No safety eyewear? “You’ll shoot our eye out, kid!”

Michael Thompson

I bought the security 9 shortly after it came out, had I known it would come out with a laser light, I would have waited. Is there a laser light that can be attached to the ones without it??

Texas Charlie

There is no shame in owning two Security 9’s, and you would still only be around the same price of one Glock.

Mike Cox Sr.

Yes ,, ADE offers a red laser ,, fits on the 20mm rail on the Security 9 ,,,


how about a GP100 in 41mag

Jim Hovater

Ruger is making a mistake in making its ‘Officer Style’ SR1911 with a stainless steel frame. Whatever benefit the heavier frame might seem to provide in assisting in controlling recoil (negligible) is offset by carry comfort. One is more apt to be carrying it much more than shooting it.


O.K. Ruger…. WHERE is the .22 American rifle in *stainless steel* heavy barreled target configuration ? THAT is what people are waiting for. You make a standard blued steel target rimfire, WHERE’S THE STAINLESS ?????


I have a brand new stainless steel 10/22 with scope. I have had it for years and never been fired.


Whats the point of owning a mass produced weapon you never fire? Like buying a Toyota Corolla and parking it and not driving it. What are you saving it for???? Not criticizing just curious as to mindset.
