On the SR1911 is the external safety swept up to be turned off or swept down?

It's the same as all 1911s. Up is safe, down is fire. If you're unfamiliar with how the controls work, I would recommend doing a lot of dry firing do you understand the gun better.

The reason that I ask, is that I have never owned a 1911, but I own an LC9 and an SR9c, the safety sweep move is down-off, safe-up, but my p95 has a sweep-up safety off feature, I don't prefer the swept up safety off feature on the P95!

I would like to acquire a Ruger SR1911, but only if the safety off, sweep was a downward motion, like the LC9 and the SR9c!!

I've been wondering, are the flat trigger comfortable? It honestly doesn't look comfortable on the finger. Also what is he advantage to it vs the traditional one?

I just found one for 625 on armslist probably get it down to 600. But 695 still isn't bad.

They are eagle wing grips made of cocobolo. Had seen them on the net and fell in love. Ruger sales them on their website, i had to wait about 4 or 5 months for them to replenish their stock!
