Featuring a Gray Cerakote slide and matching grip frame with black surface controls, the Ruger American Pistol Compact is headed to market.

The new gun is a welcome aesthetic diversion from the typical Ruger American Pistol which was just available in black or in a limited run of flat dark earth models. Standard features include Novak LoMount Carry three-dot sights and a frame-mounted MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail for lights or lasers.

Tested for sustained +P ammunition use, the new gray models are only available in a .45 ACP-chambering with a 7+1 capacity. It is unclear if a 9mm version is inbound.

The compact uses a 3.75-inch barrel which gives the handgun an overall length of 7.25-inches. Height is 4.65-inches while weight is 28.6-ounces.

The Gray Ruger American Compact Pistol in .45 ACP has a $579 MSRP and ships with three nickel-Teflon plated steel magazines as well as medium and large grip modules.
