The write-up in American Rifleman was VERY complimentary toward the new Ruger SR1911. Especially compared to the price!

What did the two of you (zombie and whtsmoke) spend, out the door?

What in the world is that stoopid warning sticker on the 7-round mag? Based on the picture, it appears to say, "Watch out you dufus! When you remove the dang clip, there still be a boolit in the heater!" Am I correctamundo?

I got mine for 750.00 OTD. And yes haha the sticker basically says the gun can still fire with no mag, they have been removed now

Zombie, did you get your SR out this past weekend? I shot mine Monday and am pleased with it. I didnt really try for accuracy as much as getting the feel of it although i did get some 3.5 inch groups at 20 yards with it. I fed it Federal champions, federal hydro shocks, hsm loads as well as some real old reloads i had laying around, no ftf, or fte at all. i am going out next week and put it on a rest o see what it does.
