    :yawn:

    It should be a solid pistol, but hard for me to get exited about it. I've never really been one for 10mm 1911's.

    Wow, I'm surprised Ruger even bothered to build it then......

    Nice, but I hope the mags work better than my new LCP II.

    To be honest, I’d actually prefer it to be a 10mm GP-100, but I’m just glad that Ruger is finally on board with a standard production 10. Add in the fact that the SR1911 has quite a good reputation, even amongst some of the 1911 cognoscenti, it certainly has piqued my interest.


    Granted, it’s not a Delta Elite (a Colt, not a copy!), but the ramped barrel, adjustable sights, and “series 70” mechanism (and $350 savings) sure makes it attractive!


    Out of curiosity, what is it about the 10mm/1911 mix that leaves you “meh”?

    In all fairness, I only really like 1911's in 45ACP.

    It's certainly cool that Ruger is branching out though. :cool:

    Well, they should have checked with me first. That's their loss.

    If Ruger wants to get me excited a 4" GP100 in 10mm or .41 mag would do it

    Suggested retail 1019$ kimber and SIG's and Colt are better deals at lease in 10mm 1911s for that price. Ruger 1911 is not on there level yet but say u find one 799$ or less it starts to look like a good deal.

    I don't think Ruger is far off any of those three and I think they're a better value than any of them.

    The MSRP of $1019 for the Ruger SR1911 in 10mm is same as the MSRP for the SR1911 in .45 ACP.

    The .45 is currently retailing in the low $700s, so I would imagine the 10mm will eventually get to that same price point once the newness/novelty factor of it wears off.

    I'm thinking this would work to create some Ruger excitement. This is a Clements Custom Gunworks GP100 in 10mm, it sure fires me up :)

    Heck, I think RIA is already been making a 10mm 1911 for awhile, not really much to get excited about

    got mt SR1911CMD a couple years ago ($525), it shoots as well as my Kimber STS.
    when the prices begin to go down, i will have one in 10mm.
    Ruger makes a good weapon, their CS top shelf.

    I agree with that. IME, and I've been in the gun game many decades now, Ruger CS is right up there at the top. They'll do some amazing things: as an example, an acquaintance of mine decided to "EZ out" some scope mount filler screws from the receiver of a 10/22. Seems they were struck and he was boogering up the heads trying to remove them. Well...he punched an off-center hole in the aluminum receiver! A real Bubba job. Understandably pissed at himself, he sent the gun back to Ruger with a note saying "keep it or fix it, I don't care". Couple of weeks later he got a call from our LGS out of the blue..."come pick up your gun". Brand new 10/22, no charge. Ruger even paid the LGS service/transfer fee. Zero charge to the guy. I witnessed this little escapade myself. Amazing CS.

    True that, Ruger CS is some of the best!
