BREAKING: Ruger To Release New Polymer-Framed Striker-Fired “Ruger American” Pistol In 9mm and .45 ACP

    Sturm, Ruger & Co. appears to be set to release a brand new handgun for SHOT Show 2016. An FFL on Facebook apparently received the new gun ahead of Ruger’s announcement, most likely scheduled for the NSSF Shot Show. The Gun Show Podcast blogged the photos through the site:

    The new pistol is reported to have a 17+1 shot capacity in 9mm, and a 10+1 shot capacity in .45 ACP. It features interchangeable combined backstrap/sidestrap units. We’ll release more information via this post as it becomes available.

    EDIT: The Gun Collective posted better photos of the new pistol:
