The Ruger SR-Series is a line of semi-automatic pistols manufactured by Sturm, Ruger & Company. At 1.18 in (30.0 mm) thick through the grip, it is touted by Ruger as one of the thinnest double-stack pistols available. The SR-series has been marketed as a backup/concealment weapon for law enforcement as well as for civilian concealed carry. The Ruger SR9 chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge was introduced in October 2007, and the slightly smaller SR9c came out in January 2010. The Ruger SR40 chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge came out in October 2010.

Ruger SR40 Capacity

The Ruger SR40 is chambered in .40S&W and has a standard magazine capacity of 15 rounds.  10 round magazines are available in states with unconstitutional magazine restrictions, and 25 round magazines are available through aftermarket magazine suppliers.

Ruger SR40 Ergonomics

The SR40 has a long but thin grip that is checkered along all four sides which allows for plenty of comfortable control.  Both the safety and magazine release are ambidextrous, though the slide stop is only on the left side.  The slide serrations add positive control when manually cycling the slide.

Ruger SR40 Fit & Finish

The SR40 is built on a polymer frame that is very resistant to scratches and wear, and its steel slide (available in black or stainless steel) is incredibly hard and very resistant to damage from weather and wear.

Ruger SR40 Concealability

The SR40 is a full-sized pistol so concealment will be difficult without the right holster and attire.  Its thinner cross-section helps prevent the gun from printing through clothing.
