Sturm, Ruger & Co. has introduced the SR45, a .45 ACP entry to its line of SR polymer pistols.
The SR45 is chambered in .45 ACP and comes with a 10-round magazine. It retains a similar slim profile of the SR9 and SR40, Ruger's earlier models that made a play for law enforcement dollars. The pistols have yet to reach wider adoption as service weapons.
Ruger's SR45 offers customizable options for officers such as an ambidextrous thumb safety and magazine release button. A "reversible" backstrap allows the user to better fit the pistol to his or her hand.
Ruger will offer two versions of the SR45—a black nitride finished gun with an alloy steel slide and a brushed stainless finish on a stainless steel slide. The models will retail for $529.

Wow this certainly rounds out Ruger's tremendous line!
I would absolutely love to own one in stainless steel, when they become available! I currently own several Ruger firearms and they are tough in the extreme! One pistol, a vintage 1990's KP89DAO is the most accurate 9mm I own! I also own several .45 ACP pistols, including a Glock 21 SF. Most are large and not the most comfortable for a fellow with small'ish hands. If this pistol is as ergonomic as previous iterations, it should soon become a favorite!
If we could talk you in to a stainless steel LC9, I'd add yet another Ruger to the colection!

It makes me want to sell my Glock model 17 and get this model.
