Has Ruger made a 1911 in 40sw?

They make it in 10mm but I don't believe they ever made one in 40s&w. The 40 is pretty much a round that no one is buying anymore unless it is for a gun they already have. It's a good round, but...

If Ruger would produce a 5 inch bushing in .40 with fixed sights I would purchase a few of them. I doubt the market is there for them with how other manufacturers have dropped their .40 models.

Plastic and 9mm is how the market is going.

How about buying a 10mm Ruger and installing a 40 barrel kit?

No bushing and adjustable sights on the 10mm Ruger. Extra kart barrel in .40 is what I did with my Razorback.

I understand the appeal for the 40. And it is a good cartridge. And the ammo being surplus, clearanced, etc. is relatively inexpensive.

I have a Kart ramped barrel in a pistol I built chambered in 40 S&W. I intend to rechamber it to 10mm, I have the reamer, but haven't since 40 ammo is showing up at low prices in some forum and online vendor listings. 45 ACP practice at almost 9mm cost without reloading.

Pulled the trigger on a Rock Island Armory Rock Ultra 1911 on 40sw.

I am happy with 9mm or 45 and know there will be buyers if I decide to unload one, LOL.

I have a reamer to cut a .40 barrel for long loaded ammo. Own plenty of 45s also but .40 brass is cheap , only comes in ONE SIZE primer and loaded long it runs just fine.
