Thumbs up

Very nice, still to heavy for me in a CCW pistol, my Springfield Ultra Compact 1911 9mm is lighter. But wow I really like the design and take down features of these gun. I wouldn't turn either full sized or compact models down just way to nice of a gun Ruger has a winner here!!!

A very nice gun. I can not wait until it hits the shelves to get my hands on one. I have the
the duty size, may look at adding the little brother.

I've been waiting for the compact to come out, but I wasn't expecting it to be over 5 oz heavier than my SR9c. I'm wondering if I really have any reason to go for it, considering that I'm very happy with what I have.

Ditto this^^^^^ Not sure I'm ready to abandon the SR9c for more weight. It will have to be an incredible piece, but I do want to fondle one.

I agree with those that mentioned the weight. The SR1911 (6711, 6720) have models that weigh less than an Oz more and it's in 45 ACP.

Talldog, I believe you answered your own question. I have an SR 9C also. Im completely happy with it. Unless you just need to spend the money, why buy the American?

I have two Kahr small 45s, and they are great pistols. I am somewhat interested in the Shield 45, but if a compact American comes out in 45, Im in.

It is nice to see Ruger is expanding the American pistol offerings.

I guess I see modular pistols as the design of the future. When I bought my SR9c, I was considering the SIG P320 subcompact, but I wanted the manual safety.

You're right though. The SR9c is everything I need in an EDC. Of course, what does logic have to do with any of this, amirite? The RA9c is beautiful.

But 2 pounds loaded, in an IWB?
