- A very nice pistol with a very difficult trigger.
A very nice pistol. I have fired 200 rds thru it without a glitch. Nice size and balance. Very easy break-down and clean. The three dot sights are adequate. I'm hoping, in the future, for some after-market night sights. I am also hoping someone comes out with a better trigger kit. My only criticism of the pistol is the trigger pull. 6lbs with a lot of creep before breaking. Very hard to shoot tight groups with this kind of trigger. Trigger does not compare well with any of my Glocks. At 25 feet, I can put most of 50 rds in one ragged hole with any gun I own. That includes some heavier recoiling .45s and .40s. Not so with the Ruger. I have to blame it on the trigger.
