Default My new babies arrived

Got the Ruger last Friday. Picked up the colts today. Haven't shot any of them yet. Heres some pics. That Ruger is giving the Colts a hard time in the looks.

VERY NICE!! We're having a real hard time getting the Ruger here in my local gun shop. They are sweet shooters though from all indications.. Gratz on the collection.

Very nice indeed. Since you only have two hands, I will unselfishly take the third pistol of your choice so you are not overburdened.

Thanks Guys. I have a dozen or so more in the safe. I love the 1911's and have been collecting them since the early 80's. Every time Colt comes out with a new model, I just have to get one???

Yeah well, that's all well and good, but you're killing me.

I likes me some Colts! You are going to love that GC! And great taste in the XSE. Let me know when you want to convert it to a 460 Rowland. (I can save you a lot of time, trouble and gray hair!)


That Ruger is pretty but then it should be when compared to the Colts. The Ruger uses a cast frame vs the Colts forged and milled unit.

I'm of mixed minds with this decision Ruger made to keep costs down. This is apparent with the established price point and should kick the Remington's R1! azz. I wish them well and with Ruger's reputation, they should be GTG.

This move to casting the receiver eliminates the issue of staking the plunger tube by incorporating it in the casting.

I like that Ruger continues to use the original JMB internal extractor design. (Note to S&W: it ain't broke!)

Old school kudos to Ruger for the continued use of the GI guide rod and traditional recoil spring plug.

They also saved both cost and simplified the design with the elimination of a firing pin safety to prevent a "drop-fire". They went with a low-mass titanium firing pin eliminating an inertia caused AD in the event of a dropped gun.

Give 'er hell and shoot the snot out of all of them and report back for each range report in great detail.

If I may offer a suggestion or two,

  1. Don't mix the guns when you do the initial "New Gun Check-Out." With three to test you can mix up any issues that you may find regardless of how detailed the notes you take.
  2. Strip and clean one at a time, the GC and XSE are different internally and I'm not sure what the Ruger looks like inside.
  3. Vid the first tear-down for each of your new weapons. You wouldn't believe how much help this can be with new acquisition's.
  4. Call Aaron at Tripp Research and ask him if he can make you a better deal on a six pack of Gen II Cobra mags for your new triplets. Tell him you read about how good they are here on the FTF! ( Tripp’s Cobra Magazine Test )
