As someone who favors the GI style, I guess I don't see what's so different about the Ronin than the other 1911s that seem to look just like it. What makes is different?

Guns always have to have a masculine, man-of-action name... like Elite, Operator, Tactical, Professional, Warrior... and now Ronin. Calling it the Springfield Beergut probably wouldn't result in the desired sales volume, even if it more accurately reflected the typical owner.

LOL.........................


Funny thing is we will never know if that would sell product or not because
its never been tried . Think on this . The press would go crazy over the name
and it would get a lot of PR .

Today Springfield Armory released a New TRP 1911 called the BEER-GUT .
Its designed for the Internet , arm chair 1911 owner . Its the opposite of
the BBQ 1911 . This pistol was designed for the customer that has more
then 2 cars up on blocks in his or her front yard . SA believes that this 1911
demographic has been ignored in the gun community for far to long .

The industry has been catering low cost plastic pistols to this group of
people . Just because this group of people is not spending money on things
like landscaping , their children , their wives , their trailer park , or the cars
up on blocks , This group seems to spend lots of money on guns and ammo

This phenomenon has been witnessed in the reports and debate on the Yeet Cannon.

Add a front strap treatment please. Looks alright, I like the two tone contrast. SA offered it at nice price point to sell well.
Tactical on top - traditional on bottom.
Is it wrong to wear only the 5.11 shirt without the operator pants or is full tacticool the only way to go?

Ditch the front serrations and give us front strap checkering!
Oh and ditch the stupid looking trigger.

I’m glad they’re still putting out new 1911s. I’ve come to the realization that no gunmaker will produce a gun that is 100% what I’m looking for. I just want them to reopen the custom shop. I’ve never sent a gun in to them but I took great comfort in knowing they were there when I was finally ready.

My point was that if Colt was having cracking problems with that design, why would they do it again? Not trying to be argumentative, just never heard that being an issue. Oh, and FWIW I'm not a fan of the front serrations either but just for cosmetic reasons.

I like it myself and prefer a single sided thumb safety as their ambi safeties have been fitting loose in the past on similar priced Springfields. On the 9MM who really needs checkering.

SA should have consulted with Lipsey's on this pistol, they seem to be more in touch with what shooters want.

All this . If your going to make a pistol , make it with less . Then open the
custom shop up the way it was . So I can then pay you more to get the pistol
I want . Win Win Win for Springfield


So true Lipsey's gets it / 25lpi checkering , no ambi safety , Tool steel parts
good Colors & coatings

The SA Ronin kinda reminds me of the older two-tone Colt Combat Elite O8011XSE.

The Marines who ran thousands of rounds through their early M45A1 pistols found several slides had cracked or completely separated, and the sharp corners present in those serrations were pinpointed as the cause. Colt modified the serrations to eliminate the stress risers and the issues went away. However as you noted Colt continued to offer the old-style serrations on the XSE models, which I assume meant they didn't think civilian owners were going to be that hard on their guns. After all, if you want to find out if it's possible to break a gun just give it to a Marine to play with.

I like the name when you understand that.....

A rōnin (浪人, "drifter" or "wanderer")[1][2] was a samurai without a lord or master during the feudal period (1185Ė1868) of Japan

I got this :

noun, plural ro∑nin, ro∑nins. Japanese History.

A samurai who no longer serves a daimyo, or feudal lord

It's also important to point out that becoming a ronin was considered a disgrace in feudal Japan, for as a Samurai you were supposed to protect your master with your life. Probably not the best name to use on a gun designed to protect its master.

The story of the 47 ronin, probably the most well-known of all: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forty-seven_r%C5%8Dnin
