New SR1911 Models for 2012?

I probably need to do a search for 2012 Shot Show, but has anyone heard if Ruger plans on making an Officers size 1911 model? Or a 3" model?

I know they aren't keeping up with demand right now for the SR1911, but with the success it is having I could see them incorporating some new models

SHOT opens on Tuesday, we'll know then. Considering how hard it's been for people to find them, perhaps they should focus on getting their production running smoothly and at capacity. So far, all I've seen are pictures.

Found this on another 1911 site.

Within two days of sending Ruger a message from their website, I got the following reply from Mike Fifer, the Chief Executive Officer of Sturm, Ruger:

Dear Mr. (name deleted),

A 1911 of our high quality is a difficult firearm to build, and in spite of considerable capital spending on equipment, we have not been able to hit our daily production goal of 90 guns per day on two extended shifts. Instead, we are averaging somewhere between 50 and 60 guns per day. So far we have shipped more than 8,000 SR1911s.

In response to everyone's frustration (including our own employees, who want more SR1911s), I have committed an additional $3.3 million to acquire more equipment to try to double production. Many of those pieces of equipment are showing up now (I saw quite a few new pieces of equipment when I was in the Prescott factory last week), and I am hopeful they will be tooled up and running with additional, fully-trained employees by the first of the year.

Best regards,
Mike Fifer

There you have it fans, the official word from a reliable source!

Very interesting. Thanks guys.
It's simple: If you don't like guns, don't buy one.
