RUGER AMERICAN PISTOL
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.
