Ruger has recently released the Compact version of their Ruger American Pistol. It has been exciting to see Ruger expanding their line of polymer framed, striker-fired handguns. The previous Ruger 9E, SR9, and SR45 were good handguns, but just didn’t seem to grab enough attention to make them serious competitors in the striker-fired market.
The new Ruger American Pistol/easyazon_link series has improved upon the previous Ruger concepts, and has added more features shooters desire. Like the full-size versions, the Compact RAP has the option of having an external safety lever or not.
