    Now, if they would just bobtail it...Would be a nice carry gun but the problem is it will be a year or more before they are commonly available. Rugers are always in high demand and short supply.

    Agreed. A 9mm version with bobtail.

    Oh yeah, a (9) round clip/magazine for the 9mm version. AND under $800 PLEASE.

    Ruger has always MSRP'ed their guns $100-150 over what they actually sell for...but recently it seems like the higher prices are sticking around. I bought my SR1911 for $675 two years ago, but when I was at a gun show last weekend, I saw two of them that were going for $825...$25 OVER Ruger's MSRP of $799!

    I talked to a couple guys about this, and they said it's the way it always goes. They also said that back in the day, Kimber's could be had for around $700...but after they made a larger reputation, all bets were off. Not sure if this is true or not, but it seems to make sense.

    I wish their new Commander 1911 had a shorter grip frame for CC. I like more rounds, but if they made it only hold 6, it would make the butt MUCH easier to hide. The Bobtail would help, too :neener:

    ALL guns are selling for a bit more right now. The Ruger SR1911 was in high demand when it was first introduced and got somewhat down to normal for just a second before this recent madness kicked off and it jumped right back up.

    I'm guessing that they'll come back down to normal after the rest of this stuff comes down. Ruger isn't exactly a new kid on the block that people just learned made a good gun ;).

    I'm sure it's probably going to be another case like the SR 1911 of high demand and not enough production, at least for the time being. I do look forward to eventually checking out this new Commander version.
