My LGS ordered two from two different distributors and my friend and I each claimed one,that was on May third 2011.We got the call from the shop Jan.27th saying they were in.
The nearly 8 month wait was well worth it!

I actually recently stumbled across another SR1911 at a local gunshop here in Fredericksburg, VA last weekend. It was the first one I'd seen in my entire area since I bought mine last year. I actually pointed it out laying in the case I was so pleasantly surprised.

MrWray, that camo pattern I used as a background in that photograph is a pattern a company called Planet Eclipse came up with last year called HDE...it was made for paintball but I really do like the pattern. Plus the company has been very good to me over the years. Check them out at PlanetEclipse.com if it's something you like. I think it'd make a great bowhunting camo especially in the clothing they manufacture in-house.

I am on the hunt for SR1911, today fired an older Ruger .45 ACP shooting tulammo 230 gr. no issues, smooth action and right on target. Also, fired a Single action .357 revolver (not a Ruger) and it was right on!

I fired a Kimber 1911 and loved it; but, I did not want to get into another addiction. Well! That addiction is coming!

You get a 1911, and your screwed. I'm planning my next one already. Been a 1911 convert since tuesday, popped my cherry today, first time firing any 1911, and it was my own.

I love my SR1911 but it still seems to be a unicorn now-a-days. I sure got lucky with mine

Much talked about but rarely seen? I had been seeing them all the time, but as soon as people on FTF started talking about them more, it seemed the supply suddenly dried up in my area.

Several months ago I posted a personal reply I got from the president of Ruger. He stated they were installing about 3 million dollars worth new equipment just to build more 1911's. You gotta figure they would also have to hire new personel to run those machines. I got really frustrated last year trying to get one . You CAN buy them from Gunsamerica.com and gunbroker.com but you'll wind up in a bidding war and pay about $750.00 or more...In fact I bet you can still find the limited editions for about $1,200.00 (they only made 100 of them)

Sooner or later, if you'll wait long enough they should be showing up everywhere and for a lot less money. Personaly, I bought so many guns last year I swore I would not buy another during 2012. But if I see an SR1911 I could put on my AMEX card for 600.00 or less that sucker is MINE! My only regret is I could have bought one from my LGS for around $650.00 last year - I waited and it was gone! Really wanted one that was actually built in 2011 - since its a 100 year anniversary model. Oh well...

Nova, don't sweat it too much, the 1911 didn't actually go into production until 1912. I think February. Maybe March.

1911 got it's model name because that was the year it was accepted for military service. I think it was built (prototype) and patented in 1910.

So, 2010 and 2011 are gone... Make sure you get one made in 2012 to stick to that 100 year mark.
