I bought a couple SR1911s in the fall of 2012 for $599 each. A LGS had them on their fall hunting sale. Anyway I read about all the front sights breaking off on the intergoogle. I bought a couple new front sights off the Ruger website for about $6.50 each thinking I might well see the problems. I kept the SR1911 that I could shoot better and traded the other one off around 2016. Both had over 1000 rounds through them at least and the front sights were still fine. I would have more rounds through the remaining SR1911 but bought a SR1911-CMD in early 2013 and it is lovely. It has over 2K rounds through it and is still fine.
