    1. Well, I am glad Ruger won a couple of awards, just kidding, I had to return their American Compact 9mm pistol by a RECALL in which I did not get directly from them. I caught it on their website. Anyway, I sent my pistol to them they supposedly fixed but a NEW problem with an ejecting the casing problem. .I asked the customer service person if their were others referencing this kind of problem after the ‘ fix ‘ and she said yes, She said just return back to us to fix. I need to talk to a plant official or corporation VP, someone who can discuss this issue and solve for me and the other Ruger American Compact owners. I thing Ruger just wants to forget this ill created firearm By the way, this is the most difficult 9mm pistol I have ever had to ‘ rack ‘ the slide. I would appreciate a response from a higher up Ruger executive about this matter, otherwise, I advise gun owners not to buy their pistols. My email is for their response.

      1. The Ruger precision rimfire is in 22lr only. I would like to see a couple other rimfire cartridges added; .17MRF & .22MRF. Price point on the rifle is around $400.
