Four new Ruger products have just been added to their ever-growing catalog.

First is a 77-series rifle chambered in .17WSM that features an 18.5-inch stainless steel barrel mated to a Green Mountain laminate stock. Ruger also says that the 77/17 will have an improved trigger when compared to the older models. 7218-3

Ruger also added an SR1911 officer style pistol in .45 ACP with a heavy steel frame. The steel frame should mitigate recoil and allow for faster follow up shots while still keeping the pistol very concealable. 6762-1

Also added to the Ruger lineup is a Security-9 that comes standard with a factory installed Viridian E-Series red laser. The value-priced pistol should be a very attractive option for those looking for a self-defense tool with a laser installed.


Lastly, Ruger added a new 10/22 target rifle with a heavy emphasis on lightweight components. With a BX-Trigger, a lightweight aluminum alloy tensioned barrel, and a laminate thumbhole stock, the 10/22 Target Lite is aimed at target shooters.


From Ruger:

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) proudly introduces four new products to kick off the summer: the SR1911® Officer-Style in .45 Auto; Security-9® with Viridian® E-Series™ Red Laser; 10/22® Target Lite with Red and Black Laminate Stock; and Ruger 77/17® in .17 WSM with Green Mountain Laminate Stock.

The new SR1911 Officer-Style pistol chambered in .45 Auto features a shorter, 3.60″ barrel and shortened grip frame that makes for an ideal concealment pistol. Compared to the SR1911 Lightweight Officer-Style, the steel frame on this new model retains additional weight for better balance, lower recoil and greater durability.

The reliable and affordable Security-9 is now available paired with a factory-installed Viridian E-Series red (635-650 nm) laser. The adjustable laser module weighs just over ½ ounce with the installed long-lasting battery and comes securely mounted to the pistol. The laser also features ambidextrous push-button activation. This low-cost option is ideal for increasing accuracy in low light conditions.

The new 10/22 Target Lite is a top of the line offering from Ruger. Featuring the BX-Trigger™ with a light, crisp 2.5-3 pound trigger pull weight and a cold hammer-forged barrel tensioned in an aluminum alloy barrel sleeve, this new configuration is paired with a red and black laminate thumbhole stock, and should appeal to shooters looking for performance, reliability and style.

Following on the heels of the successful reintroduction of the 77-Series bolt-action rifles, Ruger now offers the Ruger 77/17 chambered in .17 WSM with an 18.50″ stainless steel barrel and Green Mountain laminate stock. Flat-shooting and superbly accurate, this rifle also features an improved trigger pull over previous 77/17 WSM models.
