Working with Ruger’s new stainless 10mm Auto SR1911 (VIDEO)

Hickok45 takes a look at Ruger’s recently introduced 10mm, pitched to bowlers, hog hunters and fans of the “centimeter.”

The SR1911 variant is a full-size, stainless steel 70 Series handgun that uses the same Bomar-style adjustable sights as on Ruger’s Target model. In a departure from your standard GI-style 1911, Ruger is using a black nitride-coated bushingless bull barrel for the 10mm coupled with a full-length steel guide rod — both firsts for the company.

Other features include a skeletonized hammer and trigger, flat mainspring housing, extended mag release and oversized thumb safety. Black rubber grips and a low-glare finish on the stainless frame and slide are well-suited for both hunters in challenging terrain and action shooters looking to get up and on target as fast as possible.

With an overall length of 8.67 inches, the big 10mm tips the scales at just over 40 ounces unloaded.

But how does it shoot? Apparently pretty well according to the above from ‘Hick.

“This thing feels good, and it looks good,” he says.
