    In the owner's manual for the Ruger SR1911 there is a paragraph on dry firing the gun. Basically it's OK, but they add the caveat to always have the magazine in the gun when doing so.

    So my question is why, it's a 1911. What could keeping the mag in the gun possibly protect. I understand that Ruger had trouble with one of its DA pistols and dry firing, but that's a totally different design.

    Any thoughts?

    Probably so they can try and sneak in a mag disconnect in the future..........:rolleyes:

    Maybe a "cut & paste" from a different (SR9?) manual?

    My manual says the same but if you look at the pdf manual on Rugers website they have removed part of the last sentence pertaining to having a magazine in the gun.
