(he lives out state)
Why can't you get one in the state of California? What is it about this gun that makes it 'illegal' in Cali?

They require guns with detachable magazines to have a magazine disconnect.

It's not on our unconstitutional "list" of guns we can have. But as I stated I can get it from my father, father/son can give guns to each other from out of state. It's amazing what you have to go through here in commiefornia.

Does anyone else, other than myself, have a "problem" with their investment cast frame? I like their revolvers, even though they are quite thick (heavy). But in a 1911, I am concerned as to how they will hold up to extreme round counts, let alone +P usage.

AFTER I got one of their 380 LCPs, I learned they stated not to use +P rounds in it. There was no mention of this on their web site. So, it is up for sale. Why? The 380 is already a weak cartriage; so, in my mind, a +P is necessary.

If I can not/should not use +P 45s in their 1911 (even using stronger recoil springs/shock buffers), it is just too limiting.

What say you?

Has anyone seen any specs yet that say if you can or cannot shoot +P ammo through it? I can't find any info on it.

Investment cast isnt neccessarily bad. High perrormance auto engines like you find race cars dragsters etc are investment cast. Its not the proccess that is bad. Its the quality of materials used and the skill of the workers involved in the molding and pouring of metal.

After all even billeted machined parts are made by pouring liquid metal into a mold to form the billet in the first place.

This is in the manual, which is available on their website. It's your own fault for not doing the research.

I have to doubt that few, if any, order a gun's manual before purchasing the gun. Because of the demand for this pistol, there were none in any of my local gun shops to look at; and besides, I can order one from certain sources that are less expensive than the local gun shops.

My fault? Perhaps. But in this case I can only accept a very limited amount of fault. Wolff Springs has a set of higher rated recoil springs which I immediately ordered.

Copied from the owners manual.It doesn't mention +P but does cover just about every other clasification out there.Judging from wording it sounds like +P is OK.


The SR1911TM pistols are compatible with all factory ammunition of the
correct caliber loaded to U.S. Industry Standards, including high-velocity and
hollow-point loads, loaded in brass, aluminum, or steel cartridge cases. No .45
Auto ammunition manufactured in accordance with NATO, U.S., SAAMI, or CIP
standards is known to be beyond the design limits or known not to function in
these pistols.
