Designed with the latest U.S. Military standards in mind, the Ruger American Pistol is built to perform in the harshest conditions. A true American innovation, this pistol was developed through a rigorous “Voice of the Customer” process – where numerous law enforcement and military trainers, firearms experts, distributors and retailers provided input, feedback and testing in the determination of the form, function and features of this firearm. 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.
I purchased the full sized .45 with no thumb safety, and could not be happier. Accurate, easy to maintain and very durable. Whether it’s your first pistol or 50th, you’ll be very happy.
This pistol is built like a tank and has fired everything that I have tried, from steel cased to reloads and even ammo made in Bosnia Maxxtech ammo. I am very impressed with Ruger and their firearms.
I purchased the Ruger American .45 ACP and LOOOOVE it so much, I am buying a second one. It's beautiful and handles great. My accuracy with this pistol is fantastic compared to my FMK 9 and my Smith & Wesson SD VE .40. I have put about 800 rounds through it with only one jam and that was due to a magazine issue/feed. Ruger sent me a new one right away. Absolutely love, love, love my Ruger!
The gun performs flawlessly and is very easy to shoot and clean. Excellent carry gun.
First the trigger is Very Good. Takedown is easy. Slide is easy to operate. Decent ergonomics. But... Out of the box the gun would only feed RN FMJ. Any other bullet style would jam. The gun is not accurate either. I really wanted to like this some good features but it's been just frustration. I probably have a rare lemon, but after all the introductory hype you would think some effort would be expended to see that the product manufacturing process matched the development. This is the 5th Ruger handgun I have bought. There wont be a sixth. I am through with Ruger.
