      Two New Rugers! SR45 and SR1911CMD

      I just checked my download of Ruger's catalog and noticed two new guns: Both 45's. The SR45 looks like a derivation from the SR series in 45ACP and the 1911CMD looks like a "commander size" reduction from the 1911. Anybody know anything about them?

      Found a 1911 Commander today in a gander mountain. They said its the only one they had seen. I bought it 2 mins after they put it on the shelf. $749. Nice gun. Can't wait to get some rounds through it tomorrow. It's my only 1911 in my stable. I was going to go Kimber, unless I somehow came across a Ruger. Feeling pretty lucky and still have some $ in my pocket!! FYI, I spend a lot of time traveling and I always stop at gun shops I come across. This was the first Ruger 1911 I have seen. Much less a commander, which is what I wanted.

      You are correct on both counts.....I have the SR40, and like it a lot.....45 just a bump up...not sure about the recoil difference.

      the first thing I did when I got mine home was to reverse the backstrap so as it was flush. Made a huge difference. I also added the Talon grip material (rubber version) and that made it all the better.

      Good for you! I have been unable to find one within 75 miles of my home.

      I know they have both received favorable reviews from the gun rags. They might be hard to locate, especially the 1911CMD. There are some guys on the Ruger forum that have one or both.

      I'd favor the SR45, since I already own an SR1911.
