1911 (VIDEO)

The Ruger SR1911 is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .45 ACP. Ruger introduced the SR1911, its first 1911, in May 2011. The 1911 is a very popular military pistol design because of its ability to absorb the recoil of the large .45 caliber cartridge.

Ruger is typically known for making high-quality economically priced firearms and for a decent high-end 1911, patrons could pay well more than $1,000, but Ruger, staying true to its roots, priced the 1911 at around $800.

The Ruger 1911 is made stainless steel with a low-glare finish. It’s equipped with checkered hardwood grip, and a skeletonized trigger and hammer for reduced weight. It is equipped with Novak brand (dovetailed) 3-dot sight system and, like true 1911s, a beavertail grip safety, an extended thumb safety, and a slide stop lever.

Additional features include a titanium firing pin and an 8-round stainless steel magazines.

Ruger recommends the SR1911 for general carry, collecting or competitive shooting.
