Each slide and frame are hand fitted to ensure that the action is tight, smooth and accurate. The competition barrel featuring a polished throat, fitted barrel lug and target crown is also hand fitted for precise lock-up. The Custom Shop SR1911 is assembled with only the best components, including the Koenig Shooting Sports low-mass hammer and competition sear, flat-faced match trigger shoe, precision-machined Cylinder & Slide disconnector, forged slide stop, integral plunger tube and hand-tuned sear spring. The stainless steel frame’s black nitride finish contrasts with the two-tone, hand-polished, stainless and black nitrided slide with distinctive Ruger Custom Shop markings. Textured G10 grips finish off this rugged and reliable match pistol.

    1. Love what they’ve done with this. I started out shooting the SR1911 in competition and it’s a great gun but needs lots of upgrades. First thing I did was improve the grip and sights which this has already. And their other changes sound like great improvements. However, the 45 is just not competitive in USPSA single stack competitions. The way the rules are written, the 9mm single stack has 10 round capacity and the 45 is limited to 8 rounds. Those extra 2 rounds make all the difference. And in steel challenge, there is no power factor requirement so again 9mm wins out. Ruger, offer something like above in 9mm and it will be interesting.

    2. I like it and it’s new and lots of people will buy it. But Ruger prices have been steadily climbing for all their products & this is no exception.
      Would I buy it? Probably not because it’s a single stack 45, I would rather have the 9mm version.

      But would I buy the 9mm version instead? Again, probably not. Why? Because the CZ Shadow 2 outclasses both very nice Ruger firearms on every level including price.
