I'm guessing they went with a bull barrel due to high pressures of the 10mm, and Ruger's tendency to over-engineer their products.

I'll be picking one of these up in the next year or so.

Thumbs up

The bull barrel is not due to high pressure. A standard diameter barrel handles 10MM pressures just fine. I strongly suspect the engineers at Ruger specified a bull barrel to add recoiling mass. The slightly heavier bull barrel slows the cycling speed of the slide, desireable in a 10MM 1911 believe me. It is recoil impulse, not pressure, that beats up semi auto pistols. If you can add some mass, and slow the slide, this beats up the gun and shooter's wrist less. Having owned a number of 10MMs, including a Colt Delta and Kimber, I view the bull barrel as very desirable in a 1911 in this caliber. The integrally ramped barrel is a plus too. When Colt started building Delta Elites again, the early information I saw indicated the new Deltas would have a bull barrel. When the new Deltas actually appeared, they had the same unramped bushing type barrel. I don't mind the bushing type barrel so much, but an ramped barrel would have sure been nice. My Delta had so much unsupported brass hanging out over the feed ramp that I sent the gun to BarSto and had a ramped barrel fitted. Glad to see the BoMar type sights too due to the wide range of ammo, from .40S&W level loads to the "real" 10mm, Buffalo Bore,etc. type loads. Anyway, with the Ruger 10MM's features and price point, I suspect they may sell quite a few. Heck, they even have me interested

By the same token, why should *I* be forced to buy a 1911 with an ambi-safety already installed? I detest ambi-safeties on 1911s as they interfere with the 3rd knuckle on my trigger finger. I love my Ruger 9MM 1911 Commander, especially since it is sans ambi-safety.

I saw and handled one the other day. I liked it. Great price and it appears to be very well made. I do not like the warning underneath the dustcover.

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.
It's a fun gun to shoot.

Back from another trip to the range. Another 150 rounds through the 1911. 100 Sig 180 gr FMJ & 50 rounds of 180 gr XTP from Freedom Munitions. Still love it.


Target #1 10 yards

Target #2 7 yards Rapid Fire.

That statement is highly debatable as others have mentioned especially in view of the fact that only around 9% of the general population is left handed.

The 10mm SR1911 I saw tested only provided very pedestrian levels of mechanical accuracy-something like 3 inches at 25 yards. Your results may vary.

I believe out of the box it is better than 3" at 25 yards by a competent shooter. Hickok45 tests of the SR1911 10mm were pretty impressive. I suppose if one were to choose to hunt hogs or deer at 50 plus yards some accuracy tuning might be in order but for me, I'll be happy with 3" or less at 25 yards.

Just to add to the mix. I recently attended a Shooter's Roudup event at a local gun shop and got to try out a Ruger 10mm from the table of test guns. There were a number of manufacturers with test guns available to try. I had not really desired a 10mm but thought this was a good opportunity to try the new Ruger. I have a number of 45acp 1911's from Ruger and Springfield already. To keep the story short, I loved that thing! Recoil was no problem. Accuracy seemed right on (steel targets in an outdoor protected range). Trigger was superb and function over about 10 rounds was flawless. I hadn't thought I "needed" one before. I am in trouble now.

I got one on a sale a LGS had some time ago. It was $729 on the sale and I got a free Ruger shirt and some other Ruger branded stuff. (A third 10mm mag would have been nicer.)



Not bad to field strip when you use the little paperclip thing they give you, or you could make your own.



The grips are Houge of course.

An LGS down here has them for $795 (The same LGS that had them for $729 on the pre hunting sale) and of course Buds has them now for $744.

Any suggestions for tritium sights? Looking to use it for CC so the target sights arenít desirable for me.
