    In the new issue of "Backwoods Home" magazine (Nov./Dec.'09), Massad Ayoob writes, in his article entitled "The All American 1911 Pistol", that "Ruger is ready to introduce a low-priced, high quality 1911."

    Does anyone have any info on this, as to a release date?

    If Ruger puts out a 1911 with the right price point, I am THERE.

    I do love Rugers!

    I'll ditch my Springfield in a heartbeat to get one.

    I do believe that I could go for a Ruger 1911, too. I have not heard or read anything about it at all.

    I love my Rugers too, but not so sure I'd be willing to ditch a Springfield for any new 1911, especially one marketed as "low priced". yes, I believe Ruger has quality product, but with the way things have been going in the QC dept, I'd stay with tried and true until it proves itself.

    I might not make too many friends by saying this but here goes...

    Why would they want to make a 1911 when they allready make a 45 called the P90? I have owned everything... Glocks, Sigs, 1911s, Hk...etc etc etc. None of them stack up to the Ruger P90 utter reliability. The P90 i owned never had any failures to feed... and more important to me... it was the ONLY 45acp that i was completely unable to make the thing produce a stovepipe jame...and I TRIED hard to get it to do it. Couldn't be done.
    The ONLY problem with the P90 is that it is the ugliest pistol i ever saw. Thats it.....

    I guess they are making a 1911 because of its popularity and not its reliability?

    Because the Springer is a jammamatic, not reliable even after a trip back to Springfield.

    If a 1911 doesnt work, fix it yourself. There really isnt much to them... Most gunsmithing chores on a 1911 can be accomplished by any competent gun owner with just a few basic hand tools and a good diagram...

    depending on the symptoms it could be anything as easy as a burr on the breech face to something as big as a messed up barrel.

    I sent it back to Springfield and they reamed the barrel and replaced the extractor. But I'm still getting failures to go into battery and the occasional incident where the extractor "loses" the case rim. And I only ever shoot hardball in it.

    It's better, but still not nearly perfect. I'm used to my Glocks and my Ruger P95, all of which have been 100 percent reliable, so....

    Trash it and get a different one. Not all 1911s are that bad. I had a bad Colt series 80 years ago that kept me away from 1911s for a long time. I shouldn't have let it make me hate 1911s for so long.

    probably what you need to do is smooth the breech face, throat the barrel a little, polish the feed ramp, polish the chamber just a tad. take the sharp edges off the slide rails, frame rails, locking lugs, barrel locking lug with some 600 grit sandpaper. it sounds like to me the feed angle is being affected.

    Funny, all I had to do to my Glocks and my Ruger was...take 'em out of the box :).
