UNIQUE REVERSIBLE BACKSTRAP (FLAT OR ARCHED) that allows shooters to quickly customize the size and feel
of the grip, without the use of separate inserts or special tools.
AMBIDEXTROUS THUMB SAFETY AND D-SHAPED MAGAZINE RELEASE are easy to reach and actuate.
INTEGRAL ACCESSORY MOUNTING RAIL provides space for mounting lights, lasers and other tactical accessories.
OTHER FEATURES: Though remarkably similar in size to the popular SR9, the SR40’s custom slide design reduces
recoil and slide velocity, making it more comfortable to shoot than many of its competitors.
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.

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.
I have had mine for 2 months and I have ran 500 rds through it with not one FTF or FTE. Awesome weapon going to get the SR40c next.
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!
This is a realiable, Affordable Pistol. Ruger makes some good stuff. And it's made in the U.S.A.
