Press release :

Ruger Introduces All American-Made SR1911 Pistol

April 18, 2011

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the Ruger® SR1911™, an "All American" classic rendition of John Browning's most famous handgun design. The public debut of the Ruger SR1911 pistol will take place during the NRA Annual Meeting in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania April 29 - May 1.

The single-action .45 Auto Ruger SR1911 features a bead-blasted stainless steel frame and slide, precision CNC machined for a precise slide-to-frame fit. The stainless steel barrel and bushing are produced simultaneously, from the same ordnance-grade barstock, for a precise fit and improved accuracy. The slide features rear cocking serrations and a dovetailed three-dot sight system with a Novak® rear sight and standard front sight.

"We are very proud to offer a 1911 pistol, an icon of American gun design and manufacturing," said Ruger CEO Michael Fifer. "In this 100-anniversary year of the introduction of the Government Model 1911 it is only fitting that such a firearm be completely manufactured in America with all American-made components."

The Ruger SR1911 pistol features a titanium firing pin and heavy firing pin spring, which negates the need for a firing pin block, offering an updated safety feature to the original "Series 70" design without compromising trigger pull weight. An extended thumb safety offers improved manipulation and an oversized beavertail grip safety provides positive function and reliability. A visual inspection port offers visual confirmation of a round in the chamber.

Positive extraction is facilitated by an improved internal extractor. The plunger tube for both the slide stop and thumb safety is integral to the frame and will never shoot loose. The swedged link pin also will not shoot loose. The SR1911 uses a skeletonized hammer and an aluminum, skeletonized trigger with an adjustable over-travel stop. The Ruger SR1911 features a standard recoil guide system and flat mainspring housing.

The Ruger SR1911 grips feature a Ruger logo in checkered hardwood panels. Each pistol is shipped with one 7-round and one 8-round stainless steel magazine, bushing wrench and a soft case. The SR1911 will fit currently available holsters.

Not bad looking at all. No ugly rollmarks, no obvious legal messages. Decent MSRP. Does look like possible plastic on MSH and beavertail. Hmmm.

Very interesting looking. I predict that I will look far and wide to see one for myself. Waffle over it and then probably walk away, thinking " I have too may 1911's to bite this early on another...But maybe later..."

Not bad looking and at a decent price. I'm sure it's a good piece. Ruger doesn't make junk.

I gotta admit, I am chomping at the BIT to be able to say I own one of the first batch. I hate preowned firearms for the simple reason that in my experience, most people don't take care of their guns the way I do. But to be able to say that I got the gun brand new out of the very first batch that came off the line is a whole new level of that!

Sounds great--but--should this worry me? I am looking for my first 1911. I am not a expert on the standard safeties on this weapon: is this standard and/or acceptable?

Series 70 is preferred. What they are doing is a good thing.

It wasn't a rumor really...It was actually almost introduced at the Shot show, but they held off for the NRA event.

I know you are an admin on rugerforum.com.....but how do you know this?

I'm not being a dick.....just curious because I might have a slight insight into this and was just curious.

PM me if you care to, please.

It's all metal. The black just makes it look plastic. I haven't decided if I like the black or not.

Of course, it won't surprise me when Ruger announces the first plastic-framed 1911...
