Simple, one-button takedown for quick and easy field-stripping and proper chamber-to-muzzle cleaning. Pressing a button in the back of the frame allows the barrel-receiver assembly to tilt up and off the grip frame without the use of tools. Comfortable, precision-molded polymer grip frame with a serrated front strap and checkered backstrap. Features a lightweight, ventilated, aerospace-grade aluminum receiver and a tensioned stainless steel barrel. Threaded barrel models feature a 1/2″-28 thread pattern for popular muzzle accessories, including the Ruger Silent-SR sound suppressor (thread protector included). Cold hammer-forged barrel results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity. Ergonomic bolt stop. Checkered, 1911-style grip panels for a great appearance and comfortable, non-slip hold. Internal cylindrical bolt construction ensures permanent sight-to-barrel alignment and higher accuracy potential than conventional moving-slide designs. Contoured ejection port and easy-to-grasp bolt ears allow for durable and reliable operation round after round. Accurate sighting system features an adjustable rear sight and a factory-installed Picatinny rail for easy mounting of optics. Ambidextrous manual safety can be converted to left-side only with included washer. Features a conveniently located push-button magazine release on the left side of the frame.
