First SR1911 with a bull barrel, at least I think so.

Glad to see Ruger enter the 10mm market at an attractive price point ($799 on Gunbroker). Been seeing more reasonably priced 10mm ammo lately as well.

That is great. I have been looking at 10mm's but don't want to spend a lot of money on my first one. I had been looking at Rock Island but a Ruger would be nice too.

Springfield is also going to introduce a 10mm XDM sometime in 2017 according to their You Tube channel.

This looks like a good value, especially considering Ruger's top notch customer service.

The gun Jeff tested had a clean 4.2 lb trigger pull. I just KNOW if I gamble and order one mine is going to be 6 lbs + with a lot of creep. Sure would be nice to find one in stock and handle it first because I'm going to need one of these.

Interesting! I will have to keep my eye out for one at local gun stores.

No ambi safety option, no front strap checkering. I can get both on a Sig TacOps for not much more money. Not sure why Ruger continues to cater to right handed shooters only with their 1911s. Obviously their guns sell, but I think they'd sell more if they offered an ambi safety. Hell, make it an option, at least.

Being a righty I am glad their is no ambi safety. When I shoot with my weak (left) hand I still reach over with my thumb to flip off the thumb safety even if the 1911 has an ambi safety. Ruger sells them on shopruger.com so if you need one it is there.

My favorite feature on my Ultra model Kimbers is they both have the bushingless bull barrel.

Going to be a little while before I buy another gun after dropping $1,799 on my Les Baer but a 10mm is next on my list. I have been holding off due to lack of ammo and component supplies available but both seem to be making their way to stores and on line shopping.

shopruger.com does offer an ambi manual safety.

ditto...I love his videos, him and Hickok45 are the two i always check out if i'm interested in a new firearm. Gunblast is the reason I bought my first 1911 (9mm SR1911 Lightweight CMD). Might have to start a tradition and pick one of these up soon. I've been loading some pretty hot .357 magnum and I'm curious about diving into the 10mm world.

I'm surprised it's selling so cheap.
It's a little over 700 from Bud's. 300 less than my Delta and it has target sights.
I'd order one on the spot if it had a 6" barrel.

I can install the ambi safety myself, but I shouldn't have to spend the extra money to buy a part that should be on the gun already. Their target 1911 in .45 has an ambi safety - it's the only 1911 they offer that does - for the same price as the 10mm version. The Sig TacOps comes with both an ambi safety and front strap checkering for about $100 more than the Ruger 1911.

I own many great Rugers, but I can't get behind their 1911's. Too many better options on the market.

Many more righties than lefties... I don't like ambi safeties but put up with them on my RIA. The Sig's that I looked at were closer to $1k so there is a bit of a real world price difference. If you don't like them, don't buy one.

I will say that Ruger makes a nice 1911 and if the street price is around $700; an excellent deal. My RIA 10mm 5" was $600 new and the safety is clunky but its a good shooter. My new 6" RIA long slide 52000 has a nicer safety and is definitely a step up quality wise in fit/finish. It is also over a grand new...

Wonder why they went with a bull barrel? At least it has a ramped barrel for better case support which you need if you shoot true 10mm factory loads not slightly hotter 40cal loads. Going to be looking for one for sure.
