The Ruger American Pistol is a polymer semi-automatic pistol introduced by Ruger in 2016. It differs from the SR series by lacking a manual safety and magazine disconnect. The fire control group is the serialized part which means you can buy new frames without having to go through the FFL process. It comes in 9mm and .45 ACP chamberings, interestingly not available in .40 S&W chambering.
