Ruger's got some great-looking grips on their site, I like the snakeskin-pattern ones. I'd really like to see these in a darker/blacker wood, think that would look great.

Since my youngest son is a lefty I'm probably gonna put an ambi safety on it sooner or later. Otherwise I like it like it is!

those grips look really good. How does the grip tape do for you? I've been thinking about doing the same.

Looks good 23pairer. I am thinking of a Videcki 3-hole trigger (I like the classic 3 round holes over the Ruger's more modern-looking trigger design).

I just haven't decided how much I will leave black, and how much will be switched over to stainless. I know I will get a stainless pin kit and leave the msh, grip safety, and hammer black....but Im on the fence on which way I want to go with the thumb safety, slide release, and mag release.

What is everyones' opinion of all stainless with only the msh, hammer, and grip safety black? I thought it might look nice with dark grips.

I put on the Hogue, one-piece, wrap-around, grips today and damn, that feels good! The only other mods I am considering right now are Trijicon night sights and MAYBE a tactical rail for a light.

Has anyone gotten the night sights that can advise on the part # for the SR1911.. will any 1911 fit or is it a specific size to fit the dovetails? Also, anyone put an aftermarket tactical rail on the lower? Any suggestions??

Grip tape feels great. I have put it on 3 1911's I own. Instant stick-ability.

Not much in the way of customized mods, except for another set of Ruger grips in striated rosewood...good but pretty dark. I have, however, used three of the .22 lr conversion units on mine. Ciener, Marvel, and Advantage Arms all work well and would put bulk Remington .22's into a little less than 2" @ 25 yds; but I was unable to get the Colt (sliding chamber) unit to go on the lower rails. Here's a few pics. Rod

I am giving serious thought to the Advantage Arms 22LR, I believe thats the only one that stays open on last round which is nice.

Ahem. If you want to mod an SR1911, you can jolly well get your own, Buster I will, however, allow you to put it on the RO
Sincerely,
Your Wife

Love our SR1911 just the way it came out of the box. Won't do anything to it because I want to explore some other options by purchasing another 1911. Like I actually need another excuse to buy a gun!

Still waiting for my SR1911 to arrive but I am collecting my parts.
CS warp speed trigger mod kit
Kensight adjustable target grips
Shok buffers
That should get me started. I will be using the gun for match shooting. It is sure a long wait but will be worth it.

Going to resurrect this thread as I now actually have an SR1911. This has become more my wifes gun, I usually shoot the Springfield Ranger Officer.

Those shok-buffs sound interesting Rhyno, do they make a big difference?
