A good plan, but the wife knows how to use some of the handguns currently residing here. I would fear lead poisening in my sleep where I to do that. I also believe if she got a jury of 12 Mothers of brides, she would get off faster then George Zimmerman did!

Does anyone know if the SR 1911 is legal in the People's Republic of Kalifornia?

No, it is not.

Apologies for the late reply.

I have one and it's great. I got one of those that hit the shelves in the first 6 months the SR1911 was available, and at a fair enough price of $699. Mine is the 5" stainless version with the Rosewood grips.

But please look over any SR1911 you may purchase really well. The next two I laid my hands on at local shops were extremely sloppy with a ton of lateral slide play. Personally, I'd consider each of them unacceptable.

The SR1911 can be an excellent gun. I feel that mine is exactly that (perhaps I'm biased). But I wouldn't have bought those other two, and that failure rate sorta leads me to believe that there are a fair amount of crappy Ruger 1911's out there. I hate to say that, because it could ultimately reduce my own gun's value a bit...but that's what I've seen over the last year or so.

Ruger's SR1911 can be fine. But honestly, I'd recommend keeping your options open and carefully examining any Ruger you consider buying. I feel pretty confident stating that a number of those sitting on shelves aren't so great.

Thanks for the input. I look anything I buy over pretty good before I plunk down my hard earned dollars. Now when I look at this Ruger, I will remember your advise and take a more close look. I also like the Performance Center S&W 1911, but they are about twice the cost, so I will really examine the SR1911 before I accept or cast off the idea.

Retail = $799.000, but shop around and you should be able to find a new one for 600 to 650, or less. Good luck

They are on sale in a number of stores. Our LGS could not get them fast enough. Now the SR1911 pistols are getting dusty on the shelves and the prices are dropping. They are down to $699 here a drop of over $100 dollars. Quality issues are haunting Ruger's new ownership.

May I ask what is your source of information that Ruger (a publicly owned company) was bought by a new owner? Who IS this new owner?

I agree first thing I check for is that tight fit. That said, the 1911s GIs carried in the day were loose as a goose. Like the AK 47 the loose tolerances made them more durable. Today's versions are top line precision fit compared to those.
