Really good pistol. Review by Colten G

Not very many people carry Rugers as a self defense gun. I do I carry the LCP 2 and EC9S and now the Ruger American pro pistol. With this being all american made it's nice! shoots very good. They do have a safety bulletin out for this pistol along with the .45 sub compact and full size models as well for round counts greater then 10,000. This pistol handles and feels great! I would really recommend this pistol. It has a sear block system that stops the gun from firing when dropped or thrown. No safety tho which is manageable. The mag does rattle a little with different ammo. With federal ammo it rattles bad but with Critical defense it does not. Take down is easy with no trigger pull. I have bought a Flashlight/Strobe light for it as well and use an Aliengear holster for it bought online... Over all Very nice pistol. (Posted on 1/25/2019)

Bought at Rural King a while back & have put over a 100 rounds of Winchester white box & 50 rounds of federal through it with no problems. Shot at a 12×20 AR500 silhouette target at 30 yards with replacement night sights & this pistol is spot on. Love this handgun. Had a Taurus 24/7 pro compact & this pistol is a hell of a lot nicer. Highly recommend. The Truglo night sights are great. Thanks. (Posted on 9/15/2018)

Just got this gun last week , been looking for a full-size pistol to have for home defense and love Rugers. This gun does not disappoint its dead on right out the box. Took my boys out to the range today and ran 400 rounds through it and not one hiccup. Great gun,trigger, and a lot of fun to shot. (Posted on 10/1/2017)

Couldn't beat the on line price!!! Cheaper than that on line place in Ky. and much cheaper than that Goose place having the clearance sale.
Cleaned it and took it to go Pew Pew and the sights were dead on. It's a little heavy but that helps to reduce the recoil.
My 1st Ruger was a Lc9s and I was impressed by the quality. The American 9mm delivered. Easy to clean and the chasis comes out as well. But you need to watch trigger springs. But by pulling the chasis out you can detail clean with spray like no other gun and pop it back together. In my opinion, Better than the full size M&P and Sig P320. (Posted on 5/21/2017)
Overall nice full size handgun, like short slide feature to re-engage striker Review by Footman

Online ordered went smoothly. Allen torx wrench is a joke for tool. Used it twice in night to change grip and teeth twisted useless. Amount of turn required is slight and can't even feel it moved; just had to guess, then try move grip. Grips seat well in channels. IDEA FOR Ruger make tool better or BETTER YET not have it so tight that you can't tell you turned it enough. Haven't fired it yet, Xmas gift; awaiting for ammo. No info on how to change out sights; read somewhere could be done. Look to update. (Posted on 12/13/2016)

AWESOME PISTOL Review by pepdaddy

FACT: My hand was trained to a USAF K-38 in 1964. I have seen no need to change. Then I got in with a bunch of Glock disciples a couple years ago. The 2015 Internet buzz about the Ruger reminded me of the "radical" ground-up design of the 10/22 back-in-the-day [One of the precious few guns I really wish ... I had known then ... and kept it]. RK Guns offered a 5 star deal with the KYDEX Blade Tech holster [It's a LEGO--everything fits everything else--rated excellent]. The RUGER has performed flawlessly through about 400 rounds of mixed manufacturer loads. The 20% off "deal" brought 2 more magazines at a very nice price. Like the 10/22 this one is a game changer. [One GLOCK disciple has fired mine and another friend's Ruger American 9mm and is fixin to change teams!] It is as advertised a ground-up design, and RUGER got it very, very right. Thank you RK Guns for your 5 star team at the Carbondale, IL RK Gun Barn. They were very kind to help an old wheel gun man get a fast start in the world of magazines. (Posted on 5/3/2016)

I'm a ruger fan time and time again Ruger it's a home run. Ruger did their homework easy to operate and easy to take down and clean. Recoil is good with no malfunctions. The people at the Fort Wayne Rural King are great to purchase your Ruger firearms from. (Posted on 2/19/2016)

Very nice pistol Review by talbertisp
Quality

Two of the big advantages to this pistol are the ambidextrous magazine release, and the ambidextrous slide release. If you train regulary with this gun you will become skilled at weak hand shooting. I've had no difficulty loading the magazines to capacity. No misfires, stove pipes, or malfunctions of any type. This weapon is designed for police and military use............the perfect handgun to have in the home for self defense. Due to the size it is not ideal for concealed carry, but it will be my choice for home defense due to it's low recoil, large magazine capacity, and rapid fire capabilities. (Posted on 2/2/2016)

This in another solid built Ruger firearm. I really like the Nickel-Teflon coating, it makes it operate smoothly. You don't need to pull the trigger before tearing it down, and it is very simple to tear down.

I have Ruger rifles, revolvers and semi-autos, and I love them all.

This is a very nice full size pistol! (Posted on 1/25/2016)
