Ruger® American PistolTM Compact 9mm Handgun
Innovation taken from real testing by the most demanding pistol users! The Ruger® American was born thanks to input from the Ruger® "Voice of the Customer" program. Comments, feedback and improvements were received from law enforcement, military trainers, firearms experts, distributors and retailers. Combined, the result was a revolutionary new firearms platform, combining a recoil-reducing barrel cam, low mass slide, low center of gravity and a low bore axis. It all adds up to better recoil management and easier control!
Now, the outstanding new Pistol is available in a compact model, featuring a 3.55" barrel and much more carry-friendly dimensions. The Ruger® American Compact retains the numerous features and mil-spec construction of the full-size version, but in a lighter, more concealable package.
