I've read reviews for this gun and they are pretty favorable, but I didn't know if any of you either held this pistol or got to shoot it. If you guys did, can I please have your opinion?

My SR9c is my primary carry gun. I love it! It fits my hand perfectly, it's easy to conceal, and wherever I place the big white dot on the front sight is where my round goes.

Since the introduction of the Ruger SR9 back in 2007, shooters have been asking for that pistol to be chambered for the 45 ACP cartridge. The SR9 was Ruger’s entry into the striker-fired auto loading pistol market, and it has met with great success. Followed by both the compact SR9c and the full-sized SR40 in 2010, as well as the SR40c, the SR series of pistols have proven to be very reliable, while having the softest recoil that I have felt compared to other competitive pistols on the market. The SR pistols sit low in the hand, and the size and shape of the grip handles the recoil extremely well.

For those who have been waiting, the SR45 is finally here, boasting all the traits of the SR family of pistols, in a very slightly larger package. I won’t go into every last detail of the SR pistols here, as we have covered that already in previous reviews, but I will hit the high spots of the design. As mentioned, the SR pistols are striker-fired, instead of having a hammer and firing pin arrangement. This design allows the weapon to sit lower in the shooter’s hand. The SR pistols have many safety features, including ambidextrous manual safety levers, a visual and tactile loaded-chamber indicator, a passive striker safety, and an articulated safety within the trigger blade. The SR pistols also have a magazine-disconnect safety, to prevent firing with the magazine removed. In addition, the SR pistols have ambidextrous magazine release buttons, and a left-side slide lock. An accessory rail is provided, integral with the polymer frame, to accept a laser, flashlight, or other accessory.

Disassembly of the SR pistol is very simple, requires no tools, and the trigger does not have to be pulled to accomplish disassembly, as is necessary on some competitive designs. The sights are of the three-dot pattern, are made primarily of steel, and the rear is adjustable for both windage and elevation correction.

The new SR45 pistol has all the features of the other SR pistols, but is chambered for the most American of pistol cartridges, the grand old 45 ACP. The 45 ACP is a proven cartridge, which has served the needs of military, law enforcement, personal defense, and competition shooting for more than one hundred years. The cartridge itself needs no fanfare to introduce it, but this SR45 is Ruger’s latest pistol to be chambered for the cartridge.

For many years, Ruger’s only 45 ACP autoloader was the excellent P90. Like other hammer-fired P Series pistols, the P90 was reliable and accurate, but a bit on the bulky side. Ruger later introduced their polymer-framed P345, which was lighter and more compact than the P90, but both of those have now been discontinued. The Ruger SR1911 45 ACP has met with tremendous success in the marketplace, and is still going strong, but this new SR45 meets the needs of those who want a thoroughly modern polymer-framed 45, with the durability, reliability, and value of a Ruger. The SR45 does not disappoint.

Ruger has managed to fit a ten shot double-stack magazine into a package that is only slightly larger than the 40 S&W caliber SR40. In fact, the grip width of the SR9, SR40, and SR45 are the same. Front to back, the SR45 is only about eight one-hundredths (.08) of an inch larger. Trigger reach is only six one-hundredths (.06) inch longer for the SR45. The SR45 feels very little different from holding an SR40. The grip is well-textured for a secure hold, and has a reversible backstrap, changing from arched to flat, to suit the shooter’s preference.

Critical specifications for the SR45, along with a comparison to the SR40, are listed in the chart below. Weights are listed in ounces. Linear dimensions are listed in inches. Trigger pull is listed in pounds of resistance, as measured with my Lyman digital trigger pull scale. Height includes sights and magazine base pad. Maximum width is measured across the top of the frame, and includes the ambidextrous safety levers.
