Yup, and I've heard it has a loaded chamber indicator and a mag disconnect - I truly hope not as it would have JMB rolling over in his grave. Given Ruger's affectation for lawyerly stuff - it probably will have. It'll also be recalled within the first 6 months...
after my experience with the SR556 i will NOT be interested in the slightest.
At least it has an internal extractor.
I hope the rumors NGIB mentioned aren't true, it would truly be a sacrilege to eff with the 1911 design in such a way.
Revealed today and free of both those features, NGIB. It's a pure Series 70 firing system. Posted a new thread with official launch info.
I wonder why they went with a flat mainspring housing?
Original 1911 was flat. Very common mod is to replace the arched one with a flat one. More people seem to prefer flat to arched.
Anyone know a price yet?
That makes it awfully tempting.
suggested retail is 799.99
I like the sound of that. Just might be time for another one. Maybe give it some time, get some reviews.
True, it does have that weakness/fault. Sad that they did not follow the proven and VERY STRONG and EFFECTIVE external extractor like the S&W E Series.
Their design can pull out a trash can and throw it at the bad guys.
There is a review on gunblast which states it does have a loaded chamber indicator but I didn't notice anything about the mag disconnect. It states it is based on the Series 80.
I'm wondering if it has a long trigger? Not up on my measurements.
It's actually a series 70 firing system, according to Ruger's web site. There's no loaded chamber indicator, but there is a "visual inspection port." There is no mag disconnect.

Well, it looks pretty good.
Yes.. yes it does
