    Thumbs up Sr 10mm

    So thanks to all the hype and chatter I couldn't resist the temptation........Glad I couldn't!

    Its not a top tier 1911, but for a pistol at its price point it is surprisingly tight and Ruger has added most of the bells and whistles to make all but the most picky happy. My one complaint was the black front sight that just doesn't work for my eyes. I remedied that with a Dawson Ruger specific fiber optic 200T/125W rampted(required minimal fitting). The pistol has enough weight to make the 10mm cartridge manageable and really is a kick (no pun intended) to shoot with its decent trigger. My initial break in of a couple hundred rounds of 180 grn fmj and jhp's resulted in no feed, fire or ejection issues. I think the accuracy potential is there given initial results, reloads to follow.
    Ok, other than its trigger it can't do anything that my Glock 20 won't do better, but its a 1911, what's not to like?

    Love mine, 350 rounds through it so far and it keeps getting better. It is a nice, relatively inexpensive to reload for hammer on the 1911 platform.

    Have had mine for 3 weeks now, spent a wet weekend in the woods with no issues at all. I believe it has something to do with the the elements within the steel. I have several Ruger stainless guns, that have withstood years of abuse from the elements, but I will say their 1911s are the only ones I have heard of having this issue. Sorry for your trouble Bud. I will say that I love mine, 180gr heavy clad concave base bullets from X-treme over Power Pistol is an awesome combination! Picked up 3 9 round Wilson Combat Magazines during a recent sale, they also perform flawlessly.

    I bought one over a month ago on a sale at a LGS. It was $729 and I couldn't resist. So far it has been nice with different factory ammo and reloads. I can see putting different grips on in the future although the rubber ones work great.
