    My b-n-l dropped in today with a spankin' new SR1911 Ruger.
    I am a devoted revolver shooter, cowboy, and I don't particularly care for autoloaders. <{gulp}> I don't own any or reload for .45acp <(wheeze)> After all....1911's are just a fad, and probably won't be around long, right??

    I think you can see where this is going....I think Mrs. kb needs one of these SR1911's.

    They are gorgeous pistols. I eyed both the full sized and Commander length over the weekend. I think you need to buy one and post tons of photos.... It is on my list......

    If my jammies had belt loops, I'd sleep with it. But mine is an unusual attachment, I'm sure.

    It is my favorite 1911 to date, and I've owned and shot them all from government issue 1911A1s to Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Norincos, Armscors, Dan Wessons, etc. The SR1911 is by far my favorite as it has every feature I want in a 1911 and none that I don't. Actually though I sold my SR1911 just to buy an SR1911CMD which is now my carry and standard competition stock auto pistol. I having owned three SR1911 series and fired over 1000 rounds through them, I've experienced ZERO failures. Highly recommended.

    I waited a long time for mine, and it id everything that I hoped for meaning that it is well made, accurate and nicely finished. A SR1911C is in my distant future as well

    ^^^ This. Tried to find one since they came out. VERY hard to get here behind the tofu curtain. DROS'd it on December 14 last year.

    Only issue is that when inserting a magazine the top round hangs up a bit inside the frame. Takes a little chunk out of the rim. I believe it to be from the VERY robust spring on the magazine catch.

    I wound up paying about $200 over the cost of the gun & still consider it a catch.:cool:

    I would buy one in a second. A design I like, made by a company that is second to none in backing their products up. I expect I would use it for everything like I use my Kimber now.

    Thanks for the quick responses. After handling my b-n-l's yesterday, I knew I had to have one. I think I will try to find a SR1911c. I always wanted a Commander. After all, Illinois is 'sposed to get a CC bill right??

    (Not holding my breath for that.)

    I paid $599+junk fees for mine 2 years ago. My most expensive 1911 & my best looking 1911.

    Just recently got mine. I think it's a great buy for the price, a couple small issues, but none that have me regretting the purchase for $600. I may be replacing some parts and if I ever get into reloading I might have to send it back in to have the breech face cut completed correctly.

    Have a small mark on the hammer too:

    Overall, I love it though. One of my regular shooting buddies was almost ready to trade his Gold Cup for it...until I told him how cheap it was.

    HarcyPervin,
    The mark on your hammer is normal. I've handled over two dozen of these pistols at gun shows, etc over the past two years and they all have this mark. It is from the manufacturing process...

    I think you're probably right, and it doesn't bug me. The breech face cut depth being off does annoy me a bit though

    I held out as long as I could. I've seen them in stock a few times. About three weeks ago my lgs had both models for $700.
    I chose the full size and love it.
    After some range time I shot it in two IDPAs and a Steel Challenge. This is my first 1911.
    I figure I have around 700 rounds through the gun and all of them my reloads. The gun has been 100%.

    I like both of mine. I shoot the full size a little better than the commander. I handload and cast my own bullets so a little load development is in order. The full size dosen't seem too picky about what it eats. I've used Red Dot, 231, Universal, & Clays. So far I'm unable to tell any difference in group size, they produce about a 3" group shooting off hand at about 20yds. The commander shoots low and to the left about 4" both ways. I've drifted the rear sight over and am going to start load development this weekend, maybe. I have a Lyman 452460 and a Ballisticast #634 to try and get it to come together.

    I absolutly LOVE my fullsize!!! Shot lead SWC and hollowpoint and RN

    through it with no issues what so ever. The one and only complaint that I

    have is with the beaver tail, it is narrowed at the hammer and it digs into my

    thumb... other than that it is FANTASTIK!! Run out and buy one now! lol

    I have been very happy with mine, I have even competed in single stack with it...granted I suck and forgot the safety, but It ran flawless and even hit the target when I actually fired it:D
    Now I guess I need a commander

    My SR1911 and CMD have both proved to be 100% reliable and accurate. I wouldn't choose one over the other but I think the CMD balances all little better than the full size.

    A marvelous, wonderful sidearm and the best 1911 in my inventory (I am not an independently wealthy man). Get one; you won't be disappointed.

    The CDR here also shoots 4 inches low at 25 yards.
    Ruger says they're not getting any complaints & have no other front sight height options.

    The hammer mark won't affect anything but your eye. :)
    A replacement hammer will have the same mark.
