Ruger SR1911 w/Trijicon HD Night Sights

Got lucky and found one of these Ruger SR1911 at the local, family-owned sporting goods store. Added the Trijicon HD Night Lights last week. If one can find a Ruger SR1911, it is a good entry into the world of the 1911 pistol. For about $650, you get a pretty well-made, good-looking, smooth-shooting handgun. Relatively low-risk for those looking to get into 1911s. Now that I know I love the form factor, the easy handling, and the more-complicated-takedown-than-any-of-my-other-handguns, I want to buy other 1911s!

I wanna see them offer one for around 800 with checkering and factory night sights.

We all know they can do it.

Good looking pistols though. I likes them.

I really wanna see how far they'll expand this line.

ruger always screws up its marketing somewhere, always has maybe that rugers dead that will change but I expect not.

watch they make it 40 lpi when it needs to be 25 to appeal to the largest customer base..... 40 is useless

I still have yet to see one of these in person. None of my local shops can get one on the shelf. They order them for customers and have sold a quite a few, they are just never an in stock item. The next handgun I buy will be a 1911 and I will not spend more than $700. One of my local shops can order you one of the Rugers for $650 and I am a big fan of Ruger's (that's my Security Six in my avatar) but I don't know if i can bring myself to order a firearm I've never even handled.

By the way that is a fantastic looking gun and makes me envious.

I prefer stainless controls on a stainless gun, but that's still a great looking pistol. Love the Trijicon HDs too, just ordered a set from James for my xdsc.

I've got the Trijicon HD Night Sights on my XD(M) .45 ACP 4.5" barrel. They really help acquire sight picture and sight alignment in all lighting conditions.

The Trijicon Bright and Tough Night Sights are made for more models of handguns, but if the HD Night Sights are available for your handgun, I give a slight nod to those sights.

I have the Bright and Tough sights on both my Beretta handguns, and they are great sights, too. One could argue the rear Bright and Tough sights are nicer than the HD's rear sights. The HD front sight is a step forward, though.

The SR1911 shoots well. So far, only about 200 rounds through it - cheap FMJ stuff like Winchester WB Value Pack ($39.99/100 from Wal*Mart) and Herter's Select Brass ($19.99/50 from Cabela's). No jams, FTF, FTE, etc. Weapon shoots softly, accurately, and it is easy to clean up.

For cleaning, I use Slip 2000 Gun Cleaner on the outside of the barrel, guide rod, spring, etc.

I use Hoppe's #9 down the barrel with about a dozen strokes with bore brush. It gets swabbed out with patches.

I swab out the slide using Slip 2000 Gun Cleaner, then with Breakfree CLP.

The inside of the barrel gets a light coat of Slip 2000 Gun Lube.

Rails, other friction points also get Slip 2000 Gun Lube.

External parts all get wiped down with a clean cloth. If some residue is pesky, it gets CLP and a Q-Tip and another dry wipe down.

To finish it off, all exterior parts (including wood grips) get the Renaissance Wax Polish treatment. That stuff is pricey, but good.

I shoot the gun at least once a week, and I clean it after each session. Time consuming, but I like it that way.
