Ruger American Pistol: A Perfect Gun for the U.S. Army?
With a name like the “Ruger American Pistol” the only thing missing were a red, white and blue finish and a Captain America roundel on the grip.
Produced in combat and full-size models, the polymer-framed semi-automatic was introduced by the iconic gunmaker in 2015.
It utilizes a pre-tensioned striker firing system, with a Browning-type locked breech short recoil action, and is available in 9mm Luger and .45 ACP models. The American Pistol is part of Sturm, Ruger & Company’s continued to move beyond the single action and rimfire handguns the company has produced since 1949. While the company entered the centerfire auto pistol market with its P85 some thirty-five years ago, the introduction of the American in 2016 has further taken the company in a new direction.
One that involves a truly rugged and durable handgun, and as Personal Defense World report that included a pistol that could be frozen in ice, thrown against walls and even run over by a Humvee and still be able to fire. Few sporting shooters would ever subject their guns to such torture, but this merely demonstrates that the American is as tough as a superhero – even if it was only available in your basic gun metal or sleek gray Cerakote versions.
It also features a “no-nonsense” design, which includes a fully-adjustable, serrated rear target sight, ported stainless steel slide to reduce weight, modular wrap-around grip system, pre-tensioned striker system and easy takedown with no tools.
All this begs the question as to why the U.S. military, which has specific endurance specifications, never considered the Ruger American Pistol. In fact, the pistol even featured a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail, which can act as a mounting point for a wide variety of standard sights and lasers. Clearly, someone at Ruger was thinking U.S. military when the American was being developed.
In the end, the Army and Air Force went with the Sig Sauer P320 when it sought to replace the Beretta M9 during the XM17 Modular Handgun System competition a few years ago, but could the Ruger model have been adopted instead? Did Ruger miss an opportunity?

Why Ruger Never Pitched the U.S. Military
As the company tells it, they didn’t – and the decision not to submit the American for military trials was a conscious decision. The bottom line reason was very much about the company’s bottom line – in other words, Ruger’s executives simply didn’t see the return on investment.
“A good way to make a little money from federal government sales is to invest a lot money,” Ruger product manager told Personal Defense World.
Ruger’s team decided not to jump through the hoops to impress the military, but also saw that if it failed to win the contract there would be that belief it wasn’t “good enough” for the military. That in turn could cast doubt with shooters. Rather than invest, and face the chance of rejection, Ruger opted to take a win by creating a superior firearm and then simply not enter it for competition.
In the end that may have been the correct decision, as in 2018, the company was forced to issue a product Safety Bulletin for certain Ruger American Pistols chambered in 9mm. The company discovered some of those could exhibit premature wear of the locking surfaces between the slide and barrel. If ignored that could result in a crack. While this typically couldn’t occur at round counts below 10,000, such a flaw would be one that could cause a loss of confidence with the military.

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc., better known by the shortened name Ruger, is an American firearm manufacturing company based in Southport, Connecticut, with production facilities also in Newport, New Hampshire, Mayodan, North Carolina, and Prescott, Arizona. The company was founded in 1949 by Alexander McCormick Sturm and William B. Ruger, and it has been publicly traded since 1969.
Ruger produces bolt-action, semi-automatic, and single-shot rifles, shotguns, semi-automatic pistols, and single- and double-action revolvers. According to the ATF statistics for 2015, Ruger is currently America's largest firearm manufacturer, as well as the second largest pistol and revolver manufacturer (behind Smith & Wesson) and rifle manufacturer (behind Remington) in the United States.
Sturm, Ruger & Company was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm in 1949 in a small rented machine shop in Southport, Connecticut.
Just prior to their partnership, Bill Ruger had successfully duplicated two Japanese "baby" Nambu pistols in his garage, from a captured Nambu that he acquired from a returning Marine, at the close of World War II. When it came to designing their first semi-auto pistol, Ruger decided to incorporate the looks of the German 9mmLuger and the American Colt Woodsman into their first commercially produced .22 caliber pistol (see Ruger Standard), which became so successful that it launched the entire company.
Ruger is a dominant manufacturer in the .22 LRrimfirerifle market in the U.S., due primarily to the sales of its Ruger 10/22 semiautomatic rifle. The 10/22 is very popular due to its reputation for being relatively inexpensive and of high quality. As a result, a wealth of after-market accessories and parts were made available for it, which has further increased its popularity. The availability and variety of after-market parts makes it possible to build a 10/22 using only these parts; most of which are marketed to target shooters and hunters.
Ruger similarly dominates the .22 rimfire semi-automatic pistol market with the Ruger MK II and Ruger MK III, descendants of the Ruger Standard pistol. Like the 10/22, the MkII is supported with a wide variety of after-market accessories. The 22/45 is similar to the Ruger Standard family of pistols but features a different grip angle, that of the Colt 1911 (as opposed to that of a Luger utilized in the Ruger Standard).
Ruger is also renowned for the production of high quality revolvers, such as the GP100 and Redhawk lines. They also have some presence in the semi-auto pistol market, with the SR1911 and SR lines of handguns.
Ruger Casting has plants in Newport, New Hampshire and Prescott, Arizona, making ferrous, ductile iron and commercial titanium castings. Ruger Golf makes steel and titanium castings for golf clubs made by a number of different brands.
Sturm, Ruger stock has been publicly traded since 1969, and became a New York Stock Exchange company in 1990 (NYSE:RGR). After Alex Sturm’s death in 1951, William B. Ruger continued to direct the company until his death in 2002.
From 1949 through 2004, Ruger manufactured over 20 million firearms. The company is headquartered in Southport, Connecticut, and maintains manufacturing facilities in Newport, New Hampshire, Prescott, Arizona, and Mayodan, North Carolina. Ruger's subsidiaries are Ruger Precision Metals LLC in Earth City, Missouri, Pine Tree Castings in Newport, New Hampshire, and Ruger Sportswear & Accessories in Mayodan, North Carolina.
In September 2020, the company bought the Marlin Firearms company from bankrupt Remington Outdoor Company.
Of the total 2,288 makers of civilian firearms operating in the United States from 1986 to 2010, Ruger led the industry with 15.3 million firearms produced within the period. Ruger was ranked the number one U.S. firearms manufacturer from 2008 to 2011. In 2011, Ruger manufactured 1,114,687 firearms, as their promotion, the "Million Gun Challenge to Benefit the NRA", played a significant role in the company maintaining its top U.S. manufacturer status. The company has set a new goal of 2 million firearms produced per year. From 2009 to 2012, Ruger was the top-seller of handguns.
