Designed with the latest U.S. Military standards in mind, the Ruger American Pistol is built to perform in the harshest conditions. A true American innovation, this pistol was developed through a rigorous “Voice of the Customer” process - where numerous law enforcement and military trainers, firearms experts, distributors and retailers provided input, feedback and testing in the determination of the form, function and features of this firearm. The resultant new pistol is a revolutionary platform for Ruger, one that utilizes the combination of a recoil-reducing barrel cam (which is designed to better spread recoil energy over time) with a low mass slide, low center of gravity and a low bore axis to provide an unparalleled shooting experience.

I read some reviews before buying this gun and everyone said it was good but they didnt like the trigger pull or the back of the frame base. I have to say the trigger is awesome. This gun shoots like a dream right out of the box. I was shooting faster than ever and more accurate than even at 10 yards. Ruger got this one right. I would recommend this pistol to anyone.
I really love the ergonomics of the gun and all the features that come with the gun. It feels good in the hand, it feels like a tank and shoots well. I love the ambi-features on it and I'm very glad they got rid of the loaded chamber indicator. I would suggest everyone to get used to the trigger on it though before bashing it. It took me a while to get used to the trigger and now that I trained myself on the trigger it actually is pretty decent trigger. Would suggest maybe getting rid of the positive reset and just leave the reset the way the SR9's were. Other then that the trigger is smooth and the nickel teflon coating on all the internals make for a great gun that is very unlikely to malfunction in normal conditions. only shot about 200 rounds but no malfunctions as of yet.
