sr1911 parts breakage question

I am really happy with my sr1911. I purchased it new in 2012. I have shot the daylights out of it and have never had a malfunction or hiccup of any sort. None.

I was initially concerned about the percentage of MIM parts found in the sr1911, but i figured if anyone could pull it off, it would be Ruger.

So many people dis the sr1911, I am simply wondering how many of you folks have actually experienced any parts failures in these pistols, not counting the early front sights breaking on some specimens.

Anybody out there experiencing failure or breakage of other sr1911 parts?

The MIM parts on these pistols seem to be OK so far.

Joe, I've got 3 of the Ruger's, an early 5", an early CMD, and the Lightweight CMD. While they all have low Rd counts, they are all three perfect in function. I asked this same question some time back if I recall correctly, and found precious few problems among these pistols. Glad to hear yours is fine as well.

Skip,

I've run about 2000 rounds through mine. I have used a wide variety of ammo and several different brands of mags. I have mixed types of ammo in mags just to see what happens. Mine seems to be rock solid.

I think all of the concern over MIM parts in the Ruger is unfounded.

I own 6 other 1911's and this one has become my favorite shooter. And you can't beat the price.

Thanks,
Joe

No problems with any parts failures on my LTW CMD. I have changed out a few parts but just for my own preference.

Ed, have you inspected the bushing in your CMD Light? I'm having some burrs develop on the lugs on the bushing, like it's being hammered against something or some place in the slide. I found them during cleaning running a cloth around the outside of the busing and it hung on a very small burr.

Are you seeing anything like that?

Gotta say no problems here either. I also tried several types of ammo, different brands of mags and mixed types of ammo in different brand mags back to back. She just kept going bang, banh, bang. Every other rifle or pistol has given me some headache or issue over time, not my SR1911 Cmdr. Joy to shoot and a joy to clean even. I am really happy with this firearm. Glad things are going well with yours too.

I have 9 Ruger hand guns and I have never ever had any trouble with any of them period. I have had several dozen other Ruger's that I have traded over the years. Never any problems

Only thing I had broken on mine was the ejector pin.
