The SR40c is the compact version of the recoil reducing, striker-fired SR40 pistol, one of the slimmest and most ergonomic full-sized .40 caliber pistols on the market today. The SR40c is based on the same high-performance glass-filled nylon frame as those used on the popular SR9, SR9c and SR40 pistols, offering the same, great ergonomic features, including a slim frame, short trigger reach, reversible backstrap, and ambidextrous controls. The SR40c features a through-hardened, stainless steel slide or alloy steel slide with black nitride finish. Specifications: Slide Material: Stainless Steel Twist Rate: 1-16"

Ruger SR40C Features

The Ruger SR40C is a semi-automatic compact 9mm that has a 10 round magazine, but can also accept the larger SR40 magazines.  It has an ambidextrous magazine release and safety, and windage adjustable sights.  The barrel is 3.4 inches long and sits inside a stainless steel frame and the SR40C’s polymer frame cuts down the weight.

Ruger SR40C Capacity

Shipped with 10 round magazines, the Ruger SR40C standard magazines can be found with flush-fit or extended floor plates, the latter allowing the user to get a full grip on the pistol.  The SR9C is capable of accepting any Ruger SR9 magazine, allowing additional capacities of 15 and even 28 rounds.

Ruger SR40C Ergonomics

The Ruger SR40C features both front and rear slide serrations to assist the user in manipulating the slide with multiple grip choices.  The polymer frame offers effective grip texturing that isn’t uncomfortable when carrying concealed.  The windage-adjustable 3-dot factory sights offer a very intuitive sighting system that remains visible in low-light conditions.

Ruger SR40C Fit & Finish

The Ruger SR40C features every bit of Ruger’s excellent build quality.  All of the machined surfaces are free of tool marks and the polymer frame is free of any overpress defects.  The slide runs as smoothly as any other quality striker-fired pistol on the market, and the contours of the gun assist in an unhindered draw.
Fit and Finish

Ruger SR40C Concealability

The Ruger SR40C features a short grip height with an overall length just under 7 inches, making this a very easy pistol to conceal.  The tapering of the rear of the slide and the angles cut along the rear of the sights prevent clothing from blocking your draw.
