    Ruger® SR1911

    Series 70 firing system, Novak sights, lowered/flared ejection port, beavertail safety, enhanced hammer, cut-out trigger, and a whole bunch of other goodies for $800. Line's gonna be out the door. (And no external extractor for the true JMB believers out there.)

    I'm just glad that Ruger didn't put a bloody mag disconnect or loaded chamber indicator on the thing.

    OK, I am in line. If MSRP is $800, look for around $650.

    I'm going to be eagerly awaiting news of how it does. I might just to have to start a fund for 1. It'll either be a SA Range Officer or the Ruger SR1911.

    I'd like to see what the other side of the gun looks like first. I'm curious to know if the gun will have the "lawyer disclaimer" on the other side.

    My opinion of a 1911 is that I want the slide to have as few roll marks or billboards as possible. I will be waiting to see how these turn out. I will be keeping a close eye on them though.

    dont mean to be a downer on the enthusiasm but the frames are investment cast. forward to 1:34 in the above vid. if its anything like other ruger cheap investment castings i would wait and see on this one.

    Looks good but I'm not a fan of cast frames on 1911's. I'll probably eventually have one after they've been out a while and the recalls are over with:rolleyes:

    Back 40 years ago all the wise gun writers said the 1911 was dead. They claimed the new Wonder 9MM Dbl Action would bury the old 1911. I am glad I did not belive all that crap. I just kept buying and shooting the old outdated 1911s. Now every company is bust'in butt to get a 1911 on the market. Don't youi just love it.:D

    There were rumblings about this several months ago. I'm glad Ruger stayed with the original design.

    The BEST thing about this is that the plunger tube is an integral part of the frame. It cannot come loose. About time someone did it that way.

    And they were smart enough to use a forged slide. Far more prone to cracking a 1911 slide than a frame.

    Caspian has been offering their frames with integral plunger tubes as an option for years. In fact I'm currently building a 1911 that has this feature. I agree it is an excellent idea.

    I was wondering if Caspian is making the Ruger frames. Do you know?

    I'm pretty sure Ruger is making their own frames in-house with their lost wax investment cast process. At least it would make the most sense for them to since they're already set up to do so.
