SR1911 Night Watchman Talo

Not sure if this has been covered already, but I noticed on Davidsons website they are listing a Talo SR1911 in both full size, and commander. Looks like stainless gun with black nitride finish on both frame and slide, micarta drips, and night sights. None in stock, and a quick search could not find any other info on the model.

So it looks like an all black SR1911 and SR1911C

They are kind of high. I have seen the Navy Seal Commander for just over $1K in gun stores down here, so if the Night Watchman is $2-300 less than they list then that might not be a bad option.

Humm...first i have seen of these

They list the material of the slide as stainless, but not the frame, which leads to another cast frame, which in essence is Rock island level in my opinion, and yes, i have and had the models im talking about..I like the guns, but the price point needs to be lower, or some better parts need to be used..

Absolutely nothing wrong with a cast frame. Ruger has used high quality castings for decades. The aerospace industry uses cast parts for some very highly stressed components, and has for decades.

It states Stainless w/ Black Nitride FRAME and slide.

Sure sounds like SS frame to me..

I like that Nightwatchmen model! I like that the gun is all black. There are a few listed on Gunbroker.com. Ruger has it listed on their website under the dealer exclusive model section.





My biggest gripe with SR1911 is the black controls & mainspring housing on a satin stainless gun. They should have offered a standard version with all silver parts or a complete blued model.

Pine Tree castings (a Division of Ruger) does cast the SR1911s frames. Pine Tree Castings also casts Caspian Arms 1911s.

I have been waiting for these to hit the streets. 10-8 rear sight, a set of thin VZs and a short Harrison trigger... short of some patent dates and a pony, this has got my name written all over it.

I, for one, am glad they use the cast frame with the integral plunger tube. Now I can opt for the thin stocks ( girly hands and all ) and not worry bout my safety going TU.

They had one at the LGS I normally frequent. Price was very decent at $789. I was tempted, but after my recent experiences with both my CMD anf SR9C, I opted for a Sig Target 1911 in Nitron instead. Quite a shame as it was a very pretty gun. I just couldn't bring myself trust the quality control that's coming out of the factory these days, no matter how good the customer service has been.

Like it! I've been mulling over a SR1911 and I like the looks of this one, plus it's got night sights which is a plus I think.

As you say, that's your opinion. Ruger's casting subsidiary has been making cast frames for other manufacturers for years. Caspian is one brand that comes to mind. If anyone is going to make a quality cast frame, it's Ruger. Also, if you think that the price point on the Ruger 1911's is high, you're not shopping around enough.

The cast frame on my CMD is absolutely flawless, as was every other CMD and Government size I looked at in the shop before purchasing mine. I've got no problem with a quality cast frame, and frankly see manufacturers expousing their forged frames as way to charge more for their guns. That's just my opinion...

Took mine out first the first time yesterday and fired 100 rounds. 50 of ball and 50 of JHP...ran pefectly and was plenty accurate. Like most pistols it's more accurate than I am...if I do my part it will put them in the center all day long at 15 yards with fairly rapid firing.

The guys at the range want to buy it....

Yeah, but these are also the guys that said regarding the Space Shuttle that expectation for reliability was a catastrophic failure 1 out of 200 missions flown and they were about right we now know.

My boy is a Glock Devotee...He traded a Perfectly good unfired HK-VP9 for a Glock 19 because it was tan Plastic...worth a lot more than a black one he says...

Could you possibly hook up with him and show him how you did that?...I can't get him to listen to me.

That's a deal! I own a VP9, I really like it. I like the way HK's magazine drops. Without much effort.

The Talk 6708 is a ss frame & the 6720 is a alloy frame (both Commander) not sure of full size #. I have a 6720 & is a LW Commander with blk finish, micarta grips & trijicon night sights. I was going to get a 6708 but got the LW for a good price so I snagged it up & I'm very happy with it. The barrel bushing feels sloppy but on the range it shot better than I can, so I'm not too worried about it.
