After adding the VZ Operators and Ed Brown Maxi-Well
And the slide to frame fitment:
At a gun show this past weekend, saw the SR1911, first one I'd seen other than my own. Had a price of 899 and sold within a half hour of show opening. That's a hundred bucks over retail. Crazy.
BTW OP, I like those additions!
Mine was too. I decided to get proactive and ran down my own SR1911 and had it sent to my FFL.
The LGS had one Monday that I played with - nothing special, but would make a good entry level 1911, IMO. Trigger did feel a bit heavy.
Would you care to elaborate on your remark, or is it just an offhand comment?
I have an SR1911 among several other high quality 1911's and the SR1911 is comparable to any of them.
Let us know how she shoots.
I made a bunch of phone calls too. Was getting nowhere. The list I'm on isn't even local, its a place that was known to get the elusive SR1911 every so often. I did place an order before Ruger quit taking orders though, so hopefully I'll be seeing one soon.
Not at all. As I've stated before concerning the SR, I have played range buddy to now two coworkers and friends who own one. One fellas runs as it should, and completely blew me away considering the very first SR I have had the privilege of firing wouldn't run for all the tea in china. FTEs, FTFs, and a very tight slide IMO. I may have been harsh by calling them junk, but I prefer others to the SR and for the price, used Phillipines 1911 with better reliability. But, everyone is apt to get a lemon. I applaud the OP on his purchase, and glad you've had good luck texagun. That is my limited experience, however unsatisfactory I find it, and I wish SR owners better luck.
Does this mean you've shot a total of 4 SR1911's or 2? If two, you are saying one worked and one didn't, correct? If 4, what were the other 2 like?
It really is OK to have an opinion based on your own experience. Does it really serve a purpose to cut down a product someone is pleased with, and then wish them luck?
