Designed with the latest U.S. Military standards in mind, the Ruger American Pistol is built to perform in the harshest conditions.

The resultant new pistol is a revolutionary platform for Ruger, one that utilizes the combination of a recoil-reducing barrel cam (which is designed to better spread recoil energy over time) with a low mass slide, low center of gravity and a low bore axis to provide an unparalleled shooting experience.

Customer Comments & Questions

(5 out of 5) It’s good!
by from Lorane, OR on

This is the place to shop! It's my third Ruger from SOSS, and they are trustworthy! They get it done without any problems. As far as the Ruger American, it’s a good gun. I shot it today and I did get a little excited! I could shoot this one all day. Seems to be solid! Fits my hand and didn't hit my knuckles a bit.

 The magazines are good but not amazing. The gun functions great and is a real shooter. I can’t believe that it's not super popular. I love my Ruger collection... Rugers AR15 pistol + Carbine and now a 9mm American. Saving up for a Ruger Lapua. They make good guns that even poor people can afford, especially, after SOSS prices them. Thank you!!

(5 out of 5) Best pistol I've owned
by from Lexington, NC on

Bought it a few days ago, and have shot 2 magazines so far PMC Bronze 115 gr. No problems of any kind. Sweet shooter. Very accurate at 15-20 yards, although I was shooting a little left. Adjusted the rear sight which is somewhat difficult at first, but Ill find an easier way. Others have commented on how good the trigger is, and they're not wrong. A little heavier than some pistols, but it helps limit the recoil. Feels very solidly built, does NOT feel like a cheap pistol at all. There is about a 1/16 gap between the magazine and bottom of grip someone else commented about this in another review somewhere. Not a big concern for me, but may be for some. Very easy to disassemble and clean. Really great looking pistol, and great service from Ruger, an American company. You really can't go wrong with this one.

(5 out of 5) Ruger American 9mm pistol
by from Parowan, UT on

Second review. What's not to like? This is an awesome quality pistol. S&W, Glock have nothing over this new format. I have fired all 17 rounds as fast as I can shoot and it never fails. This is my favorite gun for many reasons.

(5 out of 5) Its a semi auto polymer striker fire from Ruger
by from Columbia, TN on

It's exactly what you'd expect. Solid all around. Shoots straight, zero FTF. Trigger makes it go bang and that's all Ill say about that. Is it my favorite 9mm? No. Would I carry it if my preferred EDC was unavailable? Yes.

(5 out of 5) Great new platform design
by from Parowan, UT on

Love this pistol and new format. The comment about shaking hands with an old friend is too true! Put over 50 rds. through it with not one issue! Unlike the other 2 guys with their new XD and Bersa who had issues a few times. I guess it is obvious by now I'm a HUGE Ruger fan. Never have FTE or FTLs with any kind of ammo! Just buy one, you'll never regret it!!

You can't go wrong on this deal. Ruger quality at a great price. Top it off with outstanding customer service, what else would one need?

(5 out of 5) Excellent value
by from Bellingham, Washington on

The Ruger American Pistol is an excellent pistol for the price. It shoots well and I LOVE the trigger.

(3 out of 5) Shoots/feels great but sloppy
by from Streator, IL on

The gun handles and shoots great right out of the box. The problem is the rattle it make with a loaded magazine inserted.

I emailed Ruger the following:
My Ruger American in 9mm shoots great. I purchased it about 5 months ago and am very pleased except for the rattle of loaded clip in the gun. Without a magazine, no rattle, when you insert a loaded magazine it seems to hang about 1/16 inch from butting up with bottom of grip and rattles when you move gun side to side. This just seems to give the gun a cheap feel and definitely not characteristic of Ruger Products. Is there a fix for this problem

Response:
Mr. Myers, the magazine is going to rattle a little bit in the firearm. Unfortunately there isn't a fix for this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you and have a good day.
