Where is the firing pin safety?????
Very nice gun
Can you rack the slide while the gun is in safety .
Pretty slick how it comes apart. Is it available in California?
complained about stupid stuff that don’t matter
Just bought the Ruger American 9mm. Can’t wait to being it out to the range next week. Thank you for your honest opinion and straight forward review. I learned a little bit more about this gun. 👍
Little bit of riggle room
No biggie to need a tool for the backstraps…not like you’ll be changing them out once you get the right size there others just sit! Lol
How is the size of this for concealed carry? Specs make it look small but by looking at it on videos it looks huge. I haven’t seen one in person yet
They had a hard time finder the S/N when i bought mine lol
I recently purchased one and when I disassembled and cleaned it out it back together but now ammo won’t feed all the way it gets stuck any help you can give
I bought the Ruger American 9mm same exact gun. Friends, I cannot say enough good things about this handgun, I absolutely love it!!!!!! Incredible!!!! 3 different sets of interchangeable hand grips, integrated picatinny rail, (1) 12 rd mag (1) 17 rd mag, ambidextrous safety and mag release. Slide works amazing no break in, extremely well balanced. I enjoy this handgun over my Glock and my Beretta 92FS
This gun shoots awesome , love mine !
This was my first handgun. I love it. I just wish there were more holsters for it
its been 4 years now and do you still have it ? and do you still carry it ?
Love how you look in the barrel I never have the balls to do it. Have looked twice thou bad thing is I wasn’t the one with the gun.
My thoughts; "hey, free rubber band. cool."
I remember getting the full size 45 and ended up not liking it for the primary reason it’s a heavy gun being Ruger designed these like tanks; built strong and meant for war. Between being a 45 and how heavy the gun is, you fell the kickback and it doesn’t play nice with you or forgive.
I heard they are considering updating this pistol in the future. My hopes is they make the gun bit lighter in weight, maybe some better grips, and probably that would be it for me! They got a lot of things right with this pistol but I know me and a lo of people say the weight of the series even for compact tends to be a turn off and I have to admit compact still felt a bit heavy. The aftermarket value for this pistol is also a little on the transparent side, hopefully that’ll change more so people can customize their pistols a little more if they want.
Overall though I do like the gun! Design wise I know some people think this Ruger made these "too busy" but I’m one of those that liked rugged guns! I think overall they preform well and functions like a charm!
So what is it 9mm,45,380 ? dude you suck 😒
Just picked this up yesterday🙂
I turned the lever down and tried to slide the slide off and it gets stuck on something to where the slide will not detach. I can pull the slide back to lock the lever I only put 50 rnds in this firearm. HELP PLEASE
Hey GBG. Great job. Good info.
how does it compare to the SR9c? thank you
The grips are labeled s,m,l on the top of the inside it’s kind of hard to see but its there
How much are they?
Just ordered the stainless steel guide for the firing pin from Galloway precision and it’s supposed to make the trigger a tad smoother and take over around 1lb off the pull.
The higher capacity mag is 17 rnds, not 16 rnds as you said. The right slide lock/ release does not work on the gun i tried at the gun store. You should always test all controls and not assume that they work.
Good review, enjoyed watching an appreciate the way you talk about the detail of the gun. Good job !
The mag that holds 17 fits loose and makes noise
Trying to decide NANO, PPS, or this?
Am I seeing a Single stack and a Double stack Mag?
Just got mine today. Haven’t fired it yet but seems like a high quality firearm. Can’t wait to for 100+ rounds down range!
They are labeled at the top of the changeable backs
I got mine today I love it, little heavy but a great protector.
Bought this Ruger American Compact for training in my Pistol Permit classes because of its size for both men and women and most importantly having fully ambidextrous controls – I’ve had both lefties and righties in previous classes and the lefties wanted something more comfortable to learn on – done. Will take to the range later this week after I clean and oil appropriately. This makes my 6th Ruger – because I’ve always had good performance with Ruger.
YOU ARE EXACTLY WHAT I DON’T WANT TO BECOME…AN ASSHOLE!!!
Mines all black instead of the chrome part u got
Can you rack the slide with the safety on?
I just traded a canik tp9sf elite for my american compact and couldnt be happier.
The canik was still great and I’ll get another one cause it felt great and was a lil bigger and good for practice but AMRICAN RUGER,so what else is there to say lol.
Love my Ruger American 9mm compact, had for 3 years now and it’s my everyday carry.
I just bought this gun and this Video is very helpful to know about this gun. Thanks
It’s a 17 round mag
I love this gun, God’s will am going to get one for concealed carry.
Have it ,like it built like a tank though, thick
Would you please do a review on the ruger American pro model competition 9mm pistol
Just got my Ruger American pro. Love it!! Great price! Built like a tank!
Have the 45 acp compact with the TRU GLO TFX fiber optic day/ night sights installed. No complaints at all. Nail punchn’ firearm !.
Does this model only come in 9mm? Or do they have a serious with other calibers?
