Thought I'd do a follow up since it's been a little over a year since I started this thread. I don't have this gun any more, having sold it to a friend who wanted another for his sons 21st birthday....

My new to me Ruger SR 1911 CMDR and her various suits. The factory grips were just to pretty to scratch, so she gets to wear the gray/black Starburst G10's for now.

Going with the Wilson Combat setup is a fine choice. The flat wire springs are rated for 40,000 rounds, if you only get half that, you've got more than your moneys worth. I've run those in my...

The only mags I use are KimPro Tac mags, 8 rounders, and Wilson 47D's, also 8 rounders. I have never had any failure with either, no matter what gun I've run them through, Kimber, Colt, Ruger, or...

Don't let them bother you, I've done far worse and surprisingly the world hasn't come to an end.

My Custom II consist of a Kimber slide, barrel, grip safety, barrel bushing, sights, and frame...

I agree with others, to a point. The Commander size guns are ideal for CCW, but there's nothing wrong with a full size if you can deal with the weight. A proper holster makes a world of difference....

I could not agree more. Ruger did several things very well when they designed these guns. They went with the 70 series design, so fewer mechanics and better triggers right out of the box. They...

Thanks for your replies, they confirm what I thought, but I had to ask. I may still look for a 1911 in .40 or 10mm, but it might be worth working at a conversion if for no other reason than to see...

Stupid question, but I'll ask anyway. 40 conversion

Does anyone make a .40 conversion for a 1911? Or am I just stuck looking for one in .40? Inquiring minds want to know. ;)

SR 1911, possibly my first Ruger 1911

I stopped in the LGS earlier today, just to see what was new. They have a like new SR1911, marked at $600, that really caught my attention. I've never had a stainless gun nor one that just balances...

I have a VM2 that I just changed the standard loops out in favor of the magnetic loops (normally offered on the Criterion), so I would think the tuckable clips would be the same. My best advice...
