Ruger SR40 Specs

Ruger had finally sent out the press release with specifications for the Ruger SR40.

From the press release …

The SR40 weighs 27.25 ounces (when empty) 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. It features a 4.1″ barrel length, fully adjustable three-dot sights, and an integral accessory rail. It 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.

    15+1, nice. If only it didn’t have that stupid little safety

    Ruger semi auto pistols have come a long way since I bought my P93DC new way back when. And as always a good value for the $$ spent. Still need some help inthe styling dept though.

    I really like the way the grip design looks on Ruger’s new pistols. I just wish Ruger wasn’t so adamant about putting “read the warnings in the manual” text on all their guns. Nitpicky, yes, but it kinda cheapens the feel of the gun. At least it’s fairly subdued on the SR40.

    “magazine disconnect”, FAIL.

    Can it be removed or disabled?

  • “lee n. field”

    My recollection is that the magazine disconnect on the SR9 can be easily removed.
