Another Plus for this 1911 is that it is 100% American made and the price point will be under $800 (After a little while).

The boss at the shop I work at says it should sell for $700. Not bad for a 100% USA made 1911 with the features this one has.

Since the typical retail price is always less than Ruger's suggested retail price, I'm thinking this 1911 will be found priced about the same as a Taurus 1911. Let's see...Taurus or Ruger...which 1911 would I want to buy...hmmm...the RUGER! And with Prescott, AZ stamped on it, this pistol is a must-have in my book.

Follow-up...I just found the SR1911 on a Davidson's Warehouse search for $593.99!

I just found out today that Ruger is in the 1911 business...

As soon as I can get to my local guy (next weekend) I will order one if he can do it. I have been waiting a few years for Ruger to release a 1911, and since its stainless as well, I am all for it!

I've wanted Ruger to make a 1911 for years.

Now that they are I'll probably hold out until they offer a Railed version. I've come to like the Rail on my Colt, and truth be told doubt I'll go back to the non-railed models.

I have a 1911 with rail and one without.
Since I am not out during the night very much, I don't see any significant difference.

But then again DON'T BE CHEAP! GET ONE OF EACH!

Any more will be with a rail.

Another "new" 1911?????

Another 1911 maker...really? It took Ruger too long to jump on the cast 1911 bandwagon. Remington, SIG, Dan Wesson, Charles Daly, etc. etc., the list goes on. Good luck to all who want to own an "American Made" 1911 for 700 and change. I would save a few hundred bucks and get a Colt or a Kimber, but hey, that's just me and my 2 cents. If you want a deal, get a Caspian cast receiver and build your own pistol, that way you won't have the no brainer safety warning tatooed on your slide.

I'm not trying to start a flame war concerning cast vs. forged, or rail vs. no rail, but I'm no Ruger fanboy either. You get what you pay for...enjoy

They have been making 1911's for years, for other companies. Pretty sure the Rock River was contracted to Ruger, if not them, it was some other major brand.

I have shot 1911's for well over 50 years now and have owned most types, I carry the Ruger now with confidence, the Kimber is in the safe most of the time now.

Hmmm...Too long? As if the demand for 1911 pistols has subsided? I sold my Colt Government 1911 to make room for the SR1911, and it hasn't disappointed. I did catch some flack for refinishing my slide in satin black, but that's a matter of personal preference. I see that now Ruger is offering the SR1911 with a black slide as well. I guess I was ahead of them on that...

Much of that delay was Bill Ruger being very hard headed. Many of Ruger's current successes were only possible after his passing (SR223, SR1911, Mini re-tooling).

I like the fact that the plunger tube is cast in to the frame. One less thing to worry about, and Ruger has perfected sand casting. I also like the fact that it is a series 70 design, without the add-on disconnect.

What I do not understand, why dont all of the major gun manufacturers make a 1911?

Ruger has been making pistols for decades, why didnt they release a 1911 in the 1990s?
