    Never thought Ruger would jump into the AR market but they did; I don't see any reason why they shouldn't make a 1911, they are still selling like hotcakes and competition drives the prices down.

    Colt's ain't what they used to be. But like the guy above said, many problems on a 1911 can be fixed by any competent gun owner. They aren't really all that tough to figure out. But I think I'd stick by Springfield for a 1911 if I wanted something more name brand. The Rock Island I have is a great 1911. At least I know if it f**s up, I only wasted $500 instead of $1,000 or more I could have spend on a Government Model Colt 1911 or some other high end 1911. I always keep mine really clean and it's never given me a bit of trouble.

    Sometimes the brand of ammo you use can make problems too. My friend's AK was jamming when we put Winchester .223's through it, but when we put some other brand of .223 in it - exact same type of ammo, just a different brand - it ran fine.

    My buddy has a Colt M1991A1 3 1/2" Officer's and he was having feed failures too. Sent it back to Colt, they messed around with it a bit, was working okay for awhile, had a hiccup once in awhile. Had a buddy of his up in Sauk do something to the extractor and it ran like a dream. Sometimes it just needs adjustment. Get a book about 1911's and read up on them whoever was having feed failures on their Springfield.

    The 1911 Colts coming out of the factory today are as good and usually better than any of the comparably priced 1911 pistols on the market.

    I'm intrigued, and have been for awhile, at the possibility of a SR1911. If they get one to market at a reasonable price, I'll be there. :)

    I'm interested also...but my concern ( just my opinion ) that with their
    success in composite/aluminum production per recent revolver..I really expect it to be a type 1911, made like a GLock...etc...especially
    if offered at a bargain...I have seen the views on gun channels of their plant tours...etc...and even with their automated mold tequniques and automated milling per computer...etc...much more required when you have MORE metal to mill and spec....my opinion...will be a composite pistol...


    Hope I'm wrong...nothing really wrong, but not a true 1911.....course,
    none are, that dont say Colt or Browning on em ....:D

    I don't know how this thread got hijacked from your original question but to answer you, Ruger does not make a 1911. Nor is there anything about any plans to on their web site. Nobody who has been to the Shot Show has mentioned anything about Ruger announcing a 1911 in their future plans on any of the several forums that I read. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Should be interesting.
