I have a CMD. I really like it but it took a lot to make it loveavle. The first gun shot low, sent back to Ruger, they replaced it with a gun that not only shot low but had a lot of play at the hood and threw brass in my face. I sent it back to them, they installed a long link to tighten it up, repaired the brass in the face problem. They told me they couldn't do anything about shooting low. I requested a black front sight so I can file it down. Now I really like the gun. I think I would buy a Colt or Springfield, actually, I did buy a Colt Lightweight Commander last time.

I have had the full size for about 9 months (1300 or so rounds). I have shot 1911 sigs, kimbers, colts, and springfields. I would stack my SR1911 up against any of them. Mine has been flawless except for one FTE that was with someone not familiar with shooting and a little scared of the recoil; also WWB at the time. I am not blaming the gun for that one.
By the way, the SR1911 is also a series 70 in that it does not have the firing pin block. Both the SR1911 and the SW1911 use a titanium firing pin and a stronger firing pin spring to make them drop safe; but you won't be safe if you drop mine!
Lots of upgrades on the Ruger basic model that you will pay for with any other brand

I have the SR 1911,and six more different brand name 1911's.Thinking about adding one more,just haven't figure out which name brand I want to buy. Just me, eight will be enough 1911's.

My SR is the only 1911 I have ever had, so I can't compare. All I know is I love this pistol.
My guess is it would be very hard to beat, especially for the price.

love it

I love my SR1911. I've shot Colts, Springfields, Remingtons and Sigs and it shoots just as good as any of them. I wanted a Kimber but when Ruger came out with the SR1911 for a little more than half a Kimber I had to get one.
