Angry rant time Went to my club to get the new Ruger SR1911 commander out of layaway. As I am shooting on the range, it's having problems returning to battery completely, requiring a thumb-press about every other round. So, I chocked it up to being brand new and needing time to break in. FWIW, my SR1911 5" needed no such nonsense. So, I am shooting 7 and 8 round Ruger magazines. Eventually, it stops jamming so much and starts to run a little smoother at around the 250 round mark. So I am chugging along...chugga chugga choo choo, chugga chugga choo choo.... PLINK! GOOD F-N BYE FRONT SIGHT POST! The base of the sight was left in the dovetail, but the rest of it went off to parts unknown in god knows how many friggen pieces. Sigh...Why, Ruger? Just why? First the off center rear sight post on my GP100 DISTRIBUTOR EXCLUSIVE!!!!....now this? Supposedly, the guy in charge is going to sent it back in for repairs. $813 later and....ugh...so disappointed. I don't care who makes it. For that kind of money, I should be able to take it right out of the box and shoot more than 325 rounds. Every other gun has survived the routine...straight out of the box and on to the range.... Anyways, speculation was a micro-fracture in the sight post. As the slide got hot, the metal expanded until it could not bear the force of moving back and forth. I am angry. And disappointed.
