Yes, I like SR1911s
I have two of the SR1911s. Put Eaglewing grips on one so I can tell them apart.
And I have ended up with three of the CMDs. Lovely little pistols.
I have the SR1911CMD and love that gun.
Ruger did a GREAT job with their 1911s.
Yes they did. That's where using the latest manufacturing technology and very tight/accurate manufacturing cost keeping pays off. Notice I didn't say cost cutting, cost keeping.
Ruger has good engineering, but their IP comes from their tight control of manufacturing costs and use of latest technology. IE: MIM.
