The SR series is what helped me develop an enjoyment of pistol shooting. Guess it's end was just a matter of time so Ruger could concentrate on one series. I've just never warmed to the American.

Well the discontinuation of the SR series is disappointing. I have the SR22, SR9C, SR40 and SR1911/45
SR = Steady & Reliable.

Ruger already has a compact version of the American. I had one not too long ago in 9mm but sold it.

I will rephrase this. I hope Ruger comes out with a similar versions of the Compact American. Same tough build quality, but the same weight of the SR9C. And if they could build it with the quality of continuous Plus P, then we will have a great New Ruger. Not looking for a Military Combat pistol.

The RAP is a much closer relative than the SR1911

I don't see them ever getting rid of the SR1911 ...
Interestingly, I've never included the letters 'SR' as part of the title with Ruger's 1911's...it just doesn't fit the description!

It's a Ruger-made, 1911 style pistol...'nough said!

When it comes to Ruger's pistol line-up...I still prefer the older P-Series pistols!
I've never owned an SR, American, or Security-9 model Ruger pistol...

I agree. I have and enjoy the RAPC 9mm, but it is heavy and thick compared to the SR9C, so a little less comfortable to carry. Maybe an RAP frame that is a little thinner, especially through the slide since that is where the weight is and the part of the gun that goes in an IWB holster. The grips are fine in my opinion.

I find it interesting how Ruger "announces" they are discontinuing a specific gun or product line. They just disappear from the company web site. No other explanations or comments.

No matter what new Product comes out in the future, the bottom line is I will not need it nor should spend the money. I have all the CCW guns I need. And all perfect for my needs and taste.
Just because they discontinue a product really means nothing. I bought the SR9C because I believed at the time, it was a gun that would last a life time. And it is. I also have 12 magazines for this gun. I am set in every category. It would not be feasible to buy another gun, simply because they have a new model.

I have always related to the SR series to strictly the SR9,40 etc. Not the SR22 or 1911. Anyone wishing to get a fantastic quality built firearm in the Compact would be getting heck of a deal with SR. And these guns will out last the owner.

That’s too bad. The SR guns were/are good guns. I tried to warm up to the RAP 45 Compact. My issue with it was, it is bigger/bulkier than my M&P 45C, but held 1 less round, and had a shorter barrel. Now, as the funds allow, I will be buying a Security 9, and PCC to go with it, unless they do come out with a Security 45 and PCC in 45, then all bets are off.

I hate to hear this news. My SR9C is my favorite. What spare parts are recommended for an SR9C? I have a spare guide rail assembly already. Any other spare parts I should order as "just in case"? I guess I have not had pistols long enough to know what typically wears out... Thanks!

The portion of the backstrap that interfaces with the web of your hand closest to the thumb needs to be redesigned on the American. It's just not comfortable which likely led to a lot of complaints about sore thumb joints.

Hold a Beretta PX4 or an FN 509 to know what a truly comfortable grip feels like.

My Nano is my number one pistol, and the PX4 is a gun that I would love to have and yes a fantastic shooter. But owning the SR9C makes no sense to add another compact. And the PX4 are on the expensive side.
