Two of the most important factors in most firearm purchases are value and quality. Ruger has consistently made rugged, reliable, firearms that any and every marksman can afford. The SR40 fits right in with the rest of Ruger’s highly respected arsenal.
Like almost every other pistol on this list (excluding the Glock), the SR40 is heavily inspired by the Glock’s polymer frame design, with a few of its own improvements. The SR40 comes with two 15 round magazines, an ambidextrous magazine release, and a rail for lights and tactical appliances. Plus, Rugers are entirely American made, which is somewhat of a rarity.
