if it's as good as my RRA m4 then I'll buy. might be a good carry option. but I'll still wait the first year and let them work out the usual first made issues. speaking... I think it's almost time for me to buy a SW1911SC. haven't heard to many complaints lately...

I'm buying one this year - not traditional, but I'm going to give one a whirl.

Well there you have it. There have been many threads on many forums started by people wanting a polymer framed 1911.

Too bad RRA's return to the 1911 market is a far cry from what it was. People buy cheap guns though. I hope they intend for this to be a cheap gun; otherwise they may as well call it the Titanic and roll mark it as such .

I concur!
But there are a lot of 20 somethings that have been convinced that polymer is the best. But I have to say my STI seems to work fine but that was just to keep the grip thin. RRA should have made a double stack.

Nothing wrong with polymer. Yes I love steel, but for carry it just makes sense. I will buy one.

I was really considering one of their 1911s when they just went and stopped making them. I have no interest in polymer but I'm hoping this leads back to making guns out of metal again.

lower costs, going off a good name, higher profits, something 'NEW' that people will want to have. More profits.

The weight difference is very little and I don't see any advantage.
Also for $800 I rather buy a Ruger SR1911.

Now if someone would make a STRIKER fired 1911 that would be something for those of us who are not allowed to use single action arms

Weight savings, mostly.

That's OK, I can handle the real ones OK without leaning.

Those grips are the Fugliest I've ever seen. The rest is OK. Their stuff is usually pretty good.

I'd buy one, but wait! I just ordered a RIA M1911 A1 Match. Let's just see how the RIA works out for me as my second attempt at a 1911.

I figured this topic would cause lots of why, and nope s. Something new, and if they're a good brand it'll sell bottom line. It's America, we gobble up new sheit. The 10, or 20, or 50 on here that won't touch one with a yard stick, won't impact the successful sale of the Pistol. FREEDOM OF CHOICE.

About the only way I would ever own a glock .
Steel frame with wood grips would be a huge improvement.

I don't

Many of my posts lately have been to praise STI. No, I don't work for them or have any affiliation. I can say this though. They have a polymer framed series and it felt really good in hand. Shooting it would probably have recoil similar to a Glock. Pretty cool concept and I bet many people buy them. The weight savings afforded by polymer but the 1911 controls we all love.

Is that a firing pin safety in the first pic?

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Interesting idea, it sure will make it alot lighter. Although I feel like you don't buy a 1911 for the polymer. You buy a 1911 because it just FEELS like a real gun. This would be worth checking out though, if you're into that kind of thing.
