This company produces everything from handguns and rifles to revolvers and shotguns. Today, Ruger firearms remain a favorite among civilians and law enforcement personnel alike.

According to BestPoliceGuns.com,
the following are highly recommended Ruger firearms.

Rimfire: The Rimfire tops the list of Ruger's most popular firearms. Rimfire rifles – only available in .17 and .22 caliber – are known for being economical, quick, accurate and, most of all, fun to shoot. They are among the most popular .22 rifles, especially when it comes to hunting small game, target shooting and plinking (a.k.a. informal target shooting).

Ruger Rimfire pistols are rugged, affordable, simple and reliable. Perhaps the single most popular Ruger rimfire pistol is the Mark IIITM. Its design has stood the test of time, which makes them a great value for the sportsman, plinker or serious target shooter.

Other Ruger pistols include:
  • Ruger .22 Charger: equipped with rotary magazine
  • Ruger Mark III: .22 caliber: simple and reasonably priced
  • Ruger 22/45 Mark III: likened to the 1911 pistol
SR40: Gun Digest predicts that the Ruger SR40, a striker-fired handgun that offers a host of unique features, exceptional reliability, great ergonomics and excellent accuracy, will become another of Ruger's most popular firearms. Affordably priced, the SR40 and SR40c were recently introduced in the super-popular .40 Smith & Wesson cartridge. These handguns have a trigger safety lever that prevents firing unless the trigger is completely pulled. There also is an ambidextrous manual safety at the rear of the slide to prevent firing and lock the slide.

Also on the shortlist of Ruger's most popular firearms are:

Ruger Centerfire pistols: Ranging from the .204 Ruger to the most powerful magnums, these pistols are a popular choice for large game hunting, personal defense, police and military, action shooting and law enforcement. Available in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 auto calibers, all models are rugged, dependable and reasonable.

Ruger revolvers: First introduced in 1953, the Ruger revolvers are available in single or double action and are perfect for cowboy wannabees. Single action revolvers are those where the trigger performs the single action of firing the gun after the hammer is cocked manually. Double action revolvers can be fired in single- or double-action mode. Double-action mode requires pulling the trigger through a longer arc that cocks the hammer before firing the revolver. Double-action revolvers also are quicker to shoot and reload.

Single-action revolvers are available in 22 and .17 caliber, .30 Carbine, .357 Magnum, .41 Magnum, and .45 Colt. Double action models come in .357 and .44 Magnum.
