The Ruger® American® Compact is a semi-auto pistol that preforms flawlessly in extreme conditions; and is comfortable to carry and highly controllable to shoot. The Ruger American is a striker-fired, polymer-frame pistol, utilizing the Browning-type locked-breech action with a unique barrel cam modification that reduces recoil by spreading the recoil impulse out over time, resulting in reduced muzzle flip. The reduced recoil with the pistol's low center of gravity and low bore axis work in unison to enhance control during rapid fire. The steel trigger has a central trigger safety lever to prevent the pistol from firing unless the trigger is fully depressed; and a visual inspection port allows you to see if the chamber is loaded at a glance. The ergonomic polymer frame features a CNC machined stainless steel chassis, which the steel slide travels on. The modular grip system comes with 3 interchangeable wraparound grip modules for adjusting palm swell and trigger reach according to the individual shooter's hand. Novak® LoMount Carry front and rear 3-dot sights provide rapid sight acquisition, and are unobtrusive when drawing the pistol from a holster. An integral MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail in front of the trigger guard provides an attachment point for aftermarket lights and sights. The slide stop and magazine release are both ambidextrous. The Ruger American Pro Compact Semi-Auto Pistol comes with 2 nickel-plated, steel double-stack magazines. The pistol fieldstrips easily and safely, without having to depress the trigger first. Made in USA.
