My new Commander length SR1911 has a very poor barrel fit. With the gun in battery there is a lot of vertical movement as well as side to side movment. I know it is not a high priced 1911 but the barrel fit I have seen on Rock Island it superior to this particular Ruger. The full size I had locked up as good as any production 1911 out there and was very accurate. Barrel crown was also bad. It looked like someone had used a rock to try to crown the barrel. I seems there is more problems with the Commanders than with the full size model. I feel Ruger will make it rght.
The finish is not as smooth and even like the full size I had. Trigger pull is good out of the box. Have any of you had a poorley fitted barrel or bad crown?
