The Ruger P345 pistol features a slimmer-profile and stainless steel slide with a completely recontoured polymer grip. This new pistol has a 4.2-inch barrel, eight round magazine and fixed white-dot front and rear sights. The Ruger P345 pistol also features an unobtrusive internal lock, magazine disconnect, loaded chamber indicator, and all-new camblock design, which helps absorb recoil.
?Ruger pistols are known for their reliability, performance and value, and the Ruger P345 continues this proud tradition,? said Sturm, Ruger President, Stephen L. Sanetti. ?The P345 offers new engineering refinements and new ergonomic styling that pistol shooters of all skill levels will appreciate. When you pick one up, you instantly grasp its superb new handling qualities.?
The smooth, short trigger pull of the Ruger P345 helps improve accuracy, while the ergonomically shaped polymer frame provides a comfortable grip. The slimmer contoured frame and slide of the P345 reduce overall weight, and the well-defined grip checkering improves handling and control.
Two Ruger P345 models are being introduced: the KP345PR and the KP345. The KP345PR features a Picatinny-style rail under the forward portion of the frame to mount popular pistol accessories. Both models will be available beginning in May 2004.
