Just got my new Ruger SR1911!!! I will be taking it out this weekend and using it. Any tips, tricks and inside knowledge from those who have them would be greatly appreciated. I am also curious about what magazines are best to accumulate because I will definitely want more than the two that come with it. Any help or insights would be welcomed. This gun feels so good in my hands my wife made me put it away. :wow:

shoot and enjoy

The Ruger mags work fine and you should get a 20% discount from the online store for registering your 1911 with them online that you can use to buy more mags.

Got mine 4 months ago. Sweetest 1911 I have ever shot. Skip the mags and buy a reloader 'cause it is so sweet to shoot your either going bankrupt or reloading! :o

Congrtulations. I am not jealous, though, because I got my SR1911 last spring. It is a great pistol, and I know you will enjoy it.

Congrats on a great pistol!

I got one earlier this year and can't say enough good things about it. For the price range it's one of the best 1911s you can get your hands on.

Mine is accurate, has a crisp (if a bit heavy) trigger, and is going on 1000 rounds without a hiccup. I'm sure you will experience similar results with yours.

As for mags, I've run Wilson 47Ds, Ed Brown 7 and 8 rounders, the factory Ruger mags and even some VERY old GI 7 rounds mags through mine without a hitch. It seems to like just about anything one can use to feed it.

Take it out and enjoy shooting the crap out of it!

:wavey:

Congrats on you new Ruger. As far as mags go, can't go wrong with Wilson 47D's, ETM's or Chip McCormick Power Mags.

Mine even works with Taurus mags!

Congradulations. I bought one last Friday (10-19-12) and with only a little over 100 rounds thru it I am very very pleased. I think it will be a dependable firearm.
I use Wilson's "Ultima Lube" on the slide and put a few drops of Mobil One on the frame rails. It makes a slicker than snot combo and the slide glides with ease.

Not quite sure yet. I've got a lot of new win brass, 230gr plated rn bullets. So My big question will be powder and what amount. Got some ideas? I was just going to scan my books. Luckily I have couple hundred rounds for it.

5.2 grains of 231 with a 230 grain fmj has worked very well in my three 1911's. Some of the guys swear by wst also.
Let me know what you end up using and how it shoots in the new ruger.

5gr W231 200Gr SWC hard cast bullet

I've shot this load in everything from a taurus to full custom Wilson and it's yet to let me down! My RIA match loved this load!

Congrats. Got mine in Jan and it has been problem free. It shoots like a 1911 should shoot. Enjoy and many happy rounds through it.

Awesome shooter!
I got to handle and fire an SR1911, at a gun class, I took my wife to.
Really nice! If I were wanting to spend $$ on a 1911, this would be the one!

Like any gun if you are going to carry it for SD then buy yourself,A couple of Virgil Trips Cobra Mags worth every penny of them for any 1911 gun.
