Ruger SR45

Ruger SR45 review

The Ruger SR45 is now a reality.  Just days ahead of the 2013 SHOT Show, Sturm, Ruger & Co announced the big bore addition to the company’s popular “SR” series of handguns.

Chambered in .45 ACP, the new SR45 comes standard with 10-round magazines, giving the shooter a lot of firepower.  Yet, Ruger claims the SR45 remains a relatively thin pistol like the SR9 and SR40.  According to the specs, the SR45 is 1.27″ wide, which is just 0.07″ wider than a Smith & Wesson M&P.  The grip width is not specifically mentioned for the SR45.
