    I'm allowing myself just one modification to my new SR1911...Since these are manufactured here in Prescott, they really do need a more local flare...

    Actually, even though the grips are genuine diamondback rattler, I had to find them in Michigan! ...at Dog Grips... www.doggrips.com

    They look nice, but I gotta wonder how durable they'll be long term.

    I wouldn't spend a lot of time worrying about a Ruger 1911 durability, for a variety of reasons.

    I think he meant the grips. I'd be nervous about it too. Wouldn't the scales come off over time?

    Very cool. How does the new grip effect your ability to grip and fire?

    Nice! Do you have a pair of snakeskin boots to match?

    Yep. I have no question that the Ruger is built well. I'm not familiar with snakeskin as a material, but it doesn't seem like it would work well for a very high-wear area.

    Nice.

    Don't have a 1911 right now and this Ruger looks like it could be worth the price.
