Dear Media Professional,
Welcome to the first edition of the “Ruger Media Update” – a new delivery mechanism to ensure that we keep you up-to-date with all of the latest and greatest news at Ruger!
In this update, we are proud to announce the Ruger® SR40™ pistol, the latest extension of the SR-Series, striker-fired line of pistols. The SR40 now provides a large caliber option in one of the slimmest and most ergonomic full-sized pistol lines on the market today – joining the popular SR9 and award-winning SR9c.
Built on the same high-performance glass-filled nylon frame as its predecessors, the SR40 offers all the great ergonomic features that made the SR9 and SR9c a success: a slim, narrow frame with a short trigger reach, reversible backstrap for an arched or flat configuration, and fully ambidextrous controls. The through-hardened, stainless steel slide on the SR40 is .060″ wider than that of the SR9; the added mass of the slide reduces slide velocity during cycling, reducing recoil and improving service life.
The SR40 weighs 27.25 ounces (when empty) and ships with two fifteen-round, flush-fit magazines. A loading tool is also provided, although an anti-friction coating applied to the magazine body greatly reduces the force required to load the magazines to full capacity. It features a 4.1″ barrel length, fully adjustable three-dot sights, and an integral accessory rail. It offers modern safety features such as a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator, striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, and a frame-mounted ambidextrous manual safety.
