    Wow what a detailed report on the sr1911! Great read thanks for posting. Since I have had mine I have about 700 rounds through it and it has still never malfunctioned one bit. Like the man says, It is the best 1911 out of the box yet!

    I shot a friends a while back. I thought the trigger was just a hair rougher than my Kimber but the action was just a smooth otherwise.

    I was going to get one of these but per my gun shop they have only had 3 in this year and they go right away. I don't want the other makes so I will wait for this model...

    Well, I finally got mine. I'm a Ruger fan and was excited to be able to get a Ruger for my first 1911.

    I've put 100 rounds through it the other night of various types. I had only one problem - a FTF that turned out to be a poorly crimped. Cleaned it up and put a little Drop'L Do on it for lube. SMOOOOOTH.

    The one complaint I have is a heavy trigger. It was consistanly pulling at 6 to6.5 lbs. I called Ruger and they were agast as they are tested before shipping and should pull at 4 to 4.5 lbs. They said I could ship it to them and they would fix it, even paying for all shipping if they confirmed the heavy pull. I was impressed with thier customer service, but ultimately decided to send it to my local gunsmith for a trigger job. I know they will do a complete job where Ruger might only swap parts and call it good.

    Can't wait to get it back to the range. :D
