The finest gun dealer in Oregon was kind enough to bring my SR 1911 out here to the sticks for our local gunshow yesterday. He is the largest dealer in the state and has only gotten 24 or so of the Rugers in, all going to folks who prepaid the $629. Well I got the pistol home and spent an hour creating a Flipper-Spec, swapping out most of the MIM and the more modern features as I prefer a 1911A1. The trigger is sexy and crisp. All that is left is to black out the sights and add a Novaks light rail as this 1911 will perform nightstand duty. Colt GI -grip safety, slide release, thumb safety, mag release, vintage milled commander trigger and plug EGW- milled sear & disconnector, wide spur hammer & strut Viet Nam era milspec plastic grips Hogue aluminum arched MSH It shoots VERY well, performing the beer can dance out to 60' or so. A fine American product and a great value and perhaps the last new firearm I will ever buy, well done Ruger. ...........the only complaint is the el-cheapo Made in China labeled zippered soft case that came with it. It is quite possibly the lowest quality gun pouch I have ever touched. It went into the trash along with the box.
