I’m bullish on the Ruger American Pistol and I think it’s going to earn a good reputation amongst shooters, which is why I went ahead and purchased one in 9mm to review. But the RAP is also available in .45 ACP, and at SHOT Show’s Range Day I was able to empty a few mags using the big bore version . . .

With the .45 on the left and the 9mm on the right, the length difference is apparent. Overall, it measures 0.50″ longer, 0.10″ taller, and 1.5 oz heavier. Width and MSRP are unchanged.


Grip circumference is still very slim, especially for a .45 ACP. To fit the longer cartridge, though, Ruger effectively moved the frame into the backstrap a bit and the .45 offers only a Medium and Large option whereas the 9mm comes with a Small as well. Medium worked great for me on the 9mm and felt identical when gripping the .45.
