new Ruger SR 1911 after some mods




I 'needed' a nightstand gun and did not have the heart to desecrate any of my 1911A1s with a heinous light rail. As the Ruger offering was less expensive than what it would take me to build up a Caspian frame/slide I prepaid for one from my favorite dealer here in Oregon.

I sold off most all of the take-off parts here yesterday and made enough to buy the light.

After a few part changes to suite my tastes in 1911s here she is:

Smith and Alexander magwell.
Any problems installing the magwell? I'd interested in seeing a bottom shot to see how well it fits.

iShoot, you did a very nice job on your SR1911, it looks great. The rail looks like it belongs and looks poised to serve it's purpose.

That Operator was a full dust cover model. One day I'll have one of those. And if you already bought it, why get rid of it even if it wasn't US made?

I did not like the fact that my 1911 was made in Brazil.
