Ruger KP345PR .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Ruger KP345PR is an inexpensive gun that ran flawlessly. Our test results showed this gun was capable of 3-inch accuracy or better. But our test KP345PR was not an easy gun to shoot fast and accurately. We think there are better choices out there.

The relief in the grip felt like a good idea, but we think it caused a problem. The thinned grip appeared to promote putting too much finger through the trigger guard. In our opinion, this reduced control and accuracy.
The "PR" model had a Picatinny rail molded into the frame to attach accessories. The frame was polyurethane and long.
Ruger kept this gun slim. The decocker/safety levers fit flush, but the checkering makes them work without a slip. A keyoperated lock keeps the gun in hammer-down Safe condition.
