When designing the American® Semi-Auto Pistol, Ruger® engineers focused on producing a firearm that would meet or exceed the. Also, the result is a semi-automatic pistol that preforms flawlessly in the most extreme conditions; and is comfortable and highly controllable to shoot with great accuracy. However, the Ruger American is a striker-fired, polymer-frame pistol, utilizing the Browning-type locked-breech action with a unique barrel cam modification that reduces recoil by spreading the recoil impulse out over time, resulting in reduced muzzle flip. Also, the reduced recoil with the pistol’s low center of gravity and low bore axis work in unison to enhance control during rapid fire. Also, a short trigger take up with an excellent reset aids in obtaining top accuracy. However, the ergonomic frame features a CNC machined stainless steel chassis, which the steel slide travels on.
