Congrats on your new SR1911..... You'll enjoy it.
I was able to get out and shoot my new Ruger SR 1911.
I put a variety of .45 ACP thru it. A real mish mash of everything, from ball to hollow-point, all mixed in together. I ran 50 rds. thru it, and it ate everything.
Trigger pull is great, and easy to adjust to.
I always shoot from at least 25 yds. My groupings were spot on and consistant.
This gun has proven to be a good one. As soon as the buying frenzy cools down, and the prices come back down to earth, I'm gonna buy another.
There was one for sale in the local paper. $1200 for a super rare pistol. I think I will wait for that much money.
One of my local gunshops sells them for $649.00 + tax........when they have them in stock.
I'm on their waiting list. They only get 2-3 at any one time. I figure by the time my name rises to the top of the waiting lsit, it should be late summer or early Fall...........
Seriously, I waited here in San Antonio for half a year to get mine and bought another .45 before it came in. My Ruger 1911 has never been fired. I just don't need another large .45. I'd like good one for concealed carry. I'd let the Ruger go for what I paid (600) but I don't know how to advertise that, and gun stores only give you half of what you paid.
Anybody know how to get the word out on doing that in your local area?
I bought one at a LGS in September of 2012 for under $600.00 NIB. Since then I have upwards of 5000 rounds through it without even a hiccup! The most reliable 1911 I've ever owned!
