Ruger Introduces the SR40
October 12, 2010
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR), is 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 pistols on the market today.

"The SR40 represents the next logical step in striker-fired pistols from Ruger," remarked Bob Gates, Ruger’s Director of Law Enforcement, Military and International Sales. "The outstanding ergonomics and value of the SR9® are now available to officers and civilians in the effective and proven .40 caliber chambering. An added bonus is the surprisingly light recoil, which makes the SR40 easy and comfortable to shoot."

The SR40 is built on the same high-performance glass-filled nylon frame as the SR9, offering all the great ergonomic features that made the SR9 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 (with an empty magazine) 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.

The SR40 features a 4.1" barrel length, fully adjustable three-dot sights, and an integral accessory rail. The SR40 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.

    Ruger sr40 stainless slide

    Posted by E. Bowen on Apr 14th 2013

    The only reason I did not give this handgun a 5 was because the trigger is not quite as good as a Glock. I read many reviews on this gun before making a purchase. These reviews were, for the most part, on sites other than Impact Guns. Most of the reviews wailed and moaned about the poor trigger on the SR40. Grsnted, it's not as crisp as a Glock, but it is not the piece of crap that many reviewers wrote it is. It does have a bit of travel, but the trigger is easy, slick and clean. I recently had a chance to test a Springfield Armory handgun of similar in design to the Ruger SR40. The Sprinfield is a nice, good quality weapon which costs quite a bit more than the Ruger, but I prefer the trigger on The Ruger hands down. The Ruger has no feed problems, it is comfortable and easy to handle. The take-down and reassembly[for cleaning] is very simple. I do not see the added slide weight as a negative. When I was looking for a gun for personal defence I did not want to trust my life to a weapon that I thought might blow up in my face. Ruger has a long reputation of making quality weapons for a price that a working person can afford. The SR40 is no exception to this rule. I am confident the SR40 will do it's job if needed. I would have no reservations about buying another one. Well done Ruger! P.S. Impact Guns had the best prices I could find anywhere!

    500 rounds no malfunctions. Shoots great right out of the box. Built to last, very dependable. Heavier slide makes a world of difference. Feels incredible in hand. Quality made in USA firearm.

    This weapon puts a smile on my face everytime I shoot it. The only thing that would make the shooting expierence of this pistol better is if you had topless women reloading yur clips.The Gun is perfect, couldn't change a thing about it.

    Great Weapon

    Posted by Bob on Oct 13th 2011

    I purchased two Ruger .40 cal S&W's for my son and I to take up a hobby of target shooting as a father and son activity. The more we shoot our weapons, the more we enjoy them. It is a comfortable weapon to shoot, easy to maintain and clean. As retired military and prior Air Force Law Enforcement Specialist, I can tell you that I never fired a more comfortable pistol. Not only does it shoot well making me look good, it is a great pistol for new pistol enthusiasts like my son. He is honing his skill and getting better and better every week. I highly recommend the Ruger .40 cal S&W to shooters of any experience level. Way to go Ruger!
