Agreed.

I hate the way they and S&W do this.

Any ideas if this gun is made from forged frame and slide or cast parts ?

I believe the frame is casted, but Ruger does the frames for Caspian. Who knows they may come out of the same mold as both have their plunger tables as part of the frame and Caspian Frames are very durable.

The way I heard the story is that Ruger places that warning to read the instructions on their products is because they lost a number of product liability law suits involving the old style Blackhawk SA revolvers. These guns could fire if dropped with a round under the firing pin similar to the Colt 1873 Peacemaker. Since then it's been their policy to print the warning on all Ruger firearms. Whether this policy is the direct result of a settlement or a recommendation of Ruger's Legal Eagles I don't know. I happen to agree that the warning isn't aesthetically pleasing but then again Ruger firearms are almost universally not considered to be the fairest of the fair in that regard billboard rollmarks not withstanding.

As long as I'm logged in, I'll say if they make a 10mm night watchman version, I'll have one.

Just avoid Corbon, Buffalo Bore and any super hot handloads. Moderation in all things.

Why would you want to do that? Kinda defeats the purpose of a 10mm IMO, otherwise just get a .40S&W.

Since the SR1911 has a fully supported chamber, unlike the Delta Elite, it should be fine with hot loads.

My RIA 1911A2 HiCap handles the hottest Buffalo Bore with ease. I would think the Ruger would be at least on-par, quality wise, if not better.

I saw and handles one at a LGS. I thought it was a nice pistol for the price point. However, what is your intended purpose? SD it's good to go. Hunting, there a other choices, but not at that price.

Just picked one up at Cabelas. Got a coupon for 5% plus 5% veterans discount. I also had 45.00 in Cabelas bucks on my card.

Went to the range Thursday. First 1911 size firearm. Usually carry pocket pistol.

Love the way it handles. Shoots better than my S&W Shield 40.

Only ran a little over 100 rounds so far. Will put at least 150-200 next week. And the week after that. I may need to get a job for ammo.

It's a fun gun to shoot.

I really like the durability of Ruger firearms, and I have been seriously considering picking up one of the SR1911 10mm pistols. Thus far, I haven't found any reports of Ruger 10mm owners having any problems with the pistol. Have I just missed something or are these pistols solid performers?

The Ruger 10mm has some nice unique features. Looks like a good gun.

Ooops

I finally got shed of my G20. Just to big and bulky. I looked for a 1911 10mm and decided I liked the Ruger. I have several from LC380 to SR1911s and several in between including 3 revolvers. After finding Buds had sold out of them, I checked GB and found what I was looking for. So I placed a bid. Shortly after, the bids started coming in. Seeing how the bidding was going, I decided to bid on another 10mm. This time A Kimber Custom TLE 10mm thinking I might win one or the other. Wellll.... after all was said and done, I ended up winning both bids, so now I am the proud owner of a Ruger and Kimber 10mm.
I'm not a Bo-mar sight fan. Being in my late 60s, black on black on black targets is hard for me to pick up. I will probably switch out the front site with a Tritium or FO.
I like the Ruger brand because they seem to "over build". In all my years, I've never had trouble with a Ruger. I can't say as much for my Colts, or SA's.

Nonsense. My father's 10mm SR1911 runs on ammo that chokes my G20. I'm not kidding.

One incident, man shot himself in the leg playing fast draw. Court awarded idiocy because of 'obsolete lockwork design'. A million US greenbacks, mucho dinero back then - still a good bit now as well.

I likey

Got a chance to try the Ruger 10mm at a lgs. Only put about 10 rds through it at about 10 yards. I never considered 10mm before. I'm now trying to figure out how much overtime I would need to work to get it. Shot very well! Absolutely no worries that a Ruger will stand the test of time.

I really like my SR1911 10mm, I'm thinking I like it slightly better than my Delta Elite, it is easier shooting I'm sure because of the heavy barrel.





These two targets were fired at 20 yds:

Two of my frequent shooting buddies grabbed one about as soon as they came out. I have put a bunch of rounds through one or the other of them pretty much all summer. It is a nice looking, nicely fit and finished gun. It has a very advanced feature set for its price range. The front end is a bushingless bull barrel and full length guide rod. It has more weight in the front end, which I like. It has an integral feed ramp. I am sure that, like all Rugers, they are cast. But, Ruger wrote the book on casting. Where I would be a little hesitant about casting with another company, Ruger does not concern me a bit. The plunger tube is an integral part of the frame. Nice feature. Don't have to worry about it falling off, and it puts more strength in a part of the frame that can benefit from it. All in all, they both have been reliable and accurate. It is a good gun. If I had one minor complaint, I would like to see a "brighter" front sight of some type. My choice would be fiber optic. But, despite this minor complaint, I can see one in my future. I can recommend it highly.

I don't like the all black sights, I'm in my mid 50's and the eyes aren't what they used to be, at least white dots would be better. I did put white dots on the rear and will be doing the front sight as soon as I get some work I'm doing out of my mill vise. I can tell the white dots will help a lot.

Picked mine up Tuesday last week and Broke it in today with some 180grain bullets running about 1270 velocity on box was 1300 .. hit poa poi with this load tried some of my handloads and same poi i was happy

About 50 rounds today as i was sighting a 458 Socom in and a POF 5.56 started late with the 10's started with para alongside first then the ruger and shot my dan wesson last just as it started to rain

So didn't get to go back to ruger and shoot more after it cooled off great gun so far

But the front sight need to be a different color its a little lighter black than the rear and in sunlight is hard to pick up

I was looking VERY hard at buying an SR 1911 10mm but was disappointed in the all black sights. I was thinking of hunting deer with it but decided on a 450 Bushmaster upper for my Windham SRC. I might still get the 10 someday if they offer different sights on it.

Replaced front sight with Dawson fiber optic. Then stoned and polished internals. Now it’s a pretty good firearm for the price point.
