Another Ruger .45

Decided a 1911 .45 was in the cards for me, so after some shopping and research, I settled on this. I'm anxious to get some rounds through it, but from what I can see of the weapon after field-stripping and lubing it last night, it is a well-built, solid piece. I have been VERY pleased with the Ruger Bisley Convertible .45 Colt/ACP revolver I bought about 3 months ago.

Good looking guns. I don't have experience with these particular guns, but I am a fan of Rugers. Enjoy.

The SR1911 is an exceptional 1911 for the ~$699-750 price point it occupies. Like most Rugers, very reliable. I was impressed with my trigger time. It did not feel like a budget/entry 1911.

You will love that SR1911. Mine has been flawless so far.

I've recently had the opportunity to work on this gun. I agree that the fit, finish and performance it exceptional for a 1911 at this price point. I did notice that there was a bit of an annoying rattle coming from the beavertail, but that would be an easy fix.

I love my 45 ACP revolver. Never have to go looking for ammo.

LOL. Just had a thought. It would really be embarrassing if this gun gets shot and the front sight shears off after a mag or two.

I don't trust the factory sights at all.

that would be embarrassing if any front sight shears off any gun.
