    Hey guys, well, it's been just about exactly a year since I picked up my Ruger SR1911 after waiting over six months to get it. And I have to say, I remain very, very happy with it.

    I've put 2,000-2,500 rounds through it, using all kinds of cheapo .45ACP and good stuff, and using a variety of magazines.

    I've not had a single fail to feed, extract, or eject. It just works and, for me, this is my favorite 1911, a great sight picture and trigger.

    I remain convinced that the Ruger SR1911 is one of the best values out there when it comes to quality 1911 under $1,000. I got mine for around $600, out the door.

    Here's the link to the video.

    I saw one thru the glass case a few days ago at the lgs. I knew better than to ask to see it. Beautiful gun.

    And a beautiful one at that. Upgrade your sights though. Try some trijicons or meprolight. If you want to go basic get a set of novaks. My ruger wouldnt hit anything til i upgraded

    Cool, thanks. What do you think of a ghost ring sight on a handgun? I saw a set in Combat Handgun magazine.
