Ruger P-345

Description

The Ruger P-345 is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP.  The P-Series have been on the U.S. market since 1987 and are marketed as economically priced all-purpose pistols costing around $615.

The P-345 uses a short-recoil, locked-breech system where the backwards force is absorbed by the slide rather than the frame. Although there are many locked-breech handguns, the P-345 uses a design similar to the SIG P220 and 1911 pistols.

Features include an ambidextrous safety/decocker and an automatic firing pin safety that blocks the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully rearward. It has a black polymer frame, a stainless or blued alloy steel slide and a single-stacked 8-round magazine.

Ruger recommends the P-345 for self-defense, tactical and sport shooting.
