The Ruby pistol is a Spanish-produced derivative of John Browning's FN Model 1903, chambered in .32 ACP. Originally developed by Gabilondo y Urresti and first manufactured in 1914, eventually over fifty different Spanish companies would be involved in its production due to its high demand. Although adopted by several European militaries including Belgium, Greece and Italy, the Ruby is perhaps best known for its service with the French Army, who used it extensively in World War I. Although due for replacement by the outbreak of World War II by the Modèle 1935 pistol, budgets cuts meant the Ruby remained in frontline service during the Fall of France, after which it saw continued use by the Wehrmacht and French resistance. Production of Ruby pistols in Spain ended in 1958.
— In-game description
The Ruby is a weapon featured in Battlefield V. It first appeared in the closed beta at Gamescom. It performs near-identically to the fast-firing pistols of Battlefield 1, especially the similar-looking 1903 Hammerless.
The second sidearm unlocked in the game, the Ruby is the second fastest-firing handgun, only behind the Repetierpistole M1912 by 1 RPM. However, it has a significantly faster reload and is more controllable, making it a favorable sidearm to snipers. The Red Devil skin for the Ruby is unlocked for owners of the Deluxe Edition of the game.
