Video—ARTV: Ruger American 9 mm Luger Pistol Review

The Ruger American Pistol in 9 mm Luger showcases Ruger's talent in both engineering and manufacturing. The striker-fired polymer-frame pistol comes with three interchangeable wrap-around grip modules that provide for varying hand size and trigger reach. The gun features a left-side take-down lever, a bilateral slide lock, a wedge-shaped bilateral steel magazine release and a Novak LoMount three-dot sight system. Ruger also modified the action of the pistol by including a barrel cam that is scientifically designed to reduce felt recoil by controlling rearward movement of the slide as a cartridge is fired. Overall, the Ruger American Pistol is just one of many examples that displays the amount of research and talent that goes into Ruger products. 

Check out this “Rifleman Review” video from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV, in which Brian Sheetz takes the gun downrange.
