New Ruger SR1911 10mm
« on: September 09, 2017, 08:03:50 PM »
I just picked up a new SR1911 10mm and at first didn't like the performance. After a breakdown/inspection/cleaning/lubing it was out to the back porch to let loose a few rounds. The first mag had failure to feed with the round hung up half way into the chamber, when I pulled the slide back to clear it three rounds flew straight up out of the gun. Second mag just needed a bump on the back of the slide to fully seat one round, after that I fired about six magazines with no problems. I didn't have a target set up so I was just plinking at rocks and sticks out to 65 yds and it shows promise in the accuracy department. I changed out the black grips (prefer the double diamond wood) for some decent wood grips. From the Factory the trigger broke at a 4 lb pull over a ten pull average with a moderate amount of take up with a decently crisp break and some over travel. The trigger does have an over travel adjustment screw so that can be taken care of, overall it's a pretty decent trigger for a production gun. Hopefully I can get some range time this week and can take my Delta Elite and SR 1911 10 mm both and compare them.

Thanks for the review. Sometimes 1911's need a little break in.

I am considering one of these, and would appreciate an update once you get some more rounds through that bad boy.

Appreciate the info on the SR1911.  I've seen a couple of reports on them having issues until broken in well. 

I too am considering the the SR1911 and also would appreciate update on how the breakin goes and how it compares to the Delta Elite.

I'm loving mine. It has 2-300 rounds through it with a few FTF loading some 170gr SWC bullets I have in inventory. It's been 100% with jacketed bullets. So far my trigger has gotten smoother and it started out pretty good for a factory gun.

Up to about 200 rounds through mine.  Solid as a rock!

Ok now, I know these aren't that great as far as groups go but here they are, I fired nine rounds at the first target with the Delta Elite at 20 yds, yes I did staple it on upside down.

   
Next I fired eight rounds (I think it was eight) in the Ruger SR 1911 10mm at 20 yards also,


The eighth round went somewhere it wasn't supposed to go, still ain't figured that one out. This one was stapled upside down also but got turned when I uploaded it.

Next time out I will have to take my portable shooting table with me, these were shot standing. They would perhaps have been better but the wind was blowing, I had something in my eye, I didn't get much the night before and I was hungry, yeah that's the ticket.

Nothing makes you really appreciate what bullseye shooters do than standing up and shooting with both hands at a target 20-25 yards away.  While this wouldn't win you a bullseye match at nationals, you certainly would get laughed at shooting in a local or state match in my area.

Interesting comparison of the two guns.

Man I know what you are talking about, at our range in Hawaii a guy used to come and shoot and I believe his name was Kermit Keys and he would stand by his bench with his carrying case (wooden with the slant cut lid) opened up with his spotting scope mounted on the top edge of the lid and put his left hand in his rear pocket then rest the muzzle on a pad on the bench and occasionally raise his 1911 and fire one round at a time then rest his pistol on the pad and lean over and look in his spotting scope then go through the same process again and then shoot groups (25 yds I believe) that I would be lucky to come close to at 3 yds.

Nice shooting at 25 yards.i just got the sr1911 myself. Sold my rock island to help fund it. Love the fit and finish. Very accurate once I adjusted the sights. Major downside is that it stove piped several times and never locked the slide back once. I have bad luck with 10mm 1911's it seems. Hope this is just a break in thing.

I would like to say that was 25 yds but it was 20 yds. Mine had some bobbles with the first two mags through it but straightened out after that and has been 100% so far since then. Hopefully yours is a case of new gun syndrome and will fall in line.
