The Ruger American is, in this reviewer’s opinion, the finest semi auto pistol Ruger has ever produced. It offers all ambidextrous controls, Novak sights, three different sizes of grip modules and a short take up trigger. Ruger also removed the magazine disconnect and the thumb safety that many of their other models have. The American is a finely crafted pistol that Ruger made user friendly with great reliability.
