This Ruger American Pistol Compact is chambered in 9mm Luger and has no 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.

With a 3.55" barrel, overall dimensions of 6.65" long, 4.48" high and a weight of 28.75 ounces with an empty magazine, 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 small, medium and large replaceable grip modules and two nickel-Teflon® plated steel magazines (one 17-round extended magazine and one 12-round compact magazine).

The American-made Ruger American Pistol is built on a rigid, one-piece, precision-machined, black nitrided, 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.

Firearm Features

  • Trigger features a short takeup with positive reset.
  • Recoil-reducing barrel cam, low-mass slide, low center of gravity and low bore axis.
  • Performance tested for sustained +P ammunition use.
  • Genuine Novak® LoMount Carry three-dot sights.
  • Modular wrap-around grip system for adjusting palm swell and trigger reach.
  • Safe, easy takedown with no tools or trigger pull required.
  • Ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release allow actuation with either hand.
  • Safety features include internal, automatic sear block system, integrated trigger safety and no trigger pull required for takedown.
  • Also includes - Two nickel-Teflon® plated steel magazines (one 12-round and one 17-round with grip extension); small, medium and large grip modules.
  • Pre-tensioned striker system features a powerful striker spring for positive ignition without a heavier trigger pull.
  • Non-slip surfaces including functional slide serrations and purpose-oriented grip frame texturing for enhanced control.
  • MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail acts as a mounting point for a wide variety of standard lights, lasers and infra-red illuminators.
  • Visual inspection port allows for visual confirmation of a loaded or empty chamber.

(5 out of 5) Outstanding Shooter
by from Morgantown, WV on

My first Ruger pistol. Went to the range today. Outstanding feel and easy to get on target. Very nice groups. Heavier gun than most compact guns I own. Handles recoil well, shoots sweet. May buy another in 45 ACP.

(5 out of 5) Great feel. Great trigger
by from Frederick, MD on

Took this out to the farm yesterday with 2 boxes of ammo. I bought the weapon because of how it felt in my hand. I figured striker fired handguns will all be about the same, as far as reliability. I was so pleasantly surprised by the clean trigger. This will replace my Glock as my carry weapon. My new favorite.

(3 out of 5) Clips Don't Fit
by from Garland, Texas on

Bought brand new and followed the instructions Ruger provided. Clips rattle when in empty. Ruger service said that is the design when I called to ask about the problem. Multiple jams while shooting Winchester 115 grain FMJ, which my M&P Shield has zero problems with. Eventually I started holding the clip up with my little finger and the gun shot accurately with no jams. Found a thread on Ruger.net where multiple people found similar issues.
