    Ruger SR1911

    Just got one at the local GS. I checked it out and I am very impressed with the fit of the slide and the overall feel for the price. $639. But there is something about it from a looks standpoint that is just doesn't do it for me, but for all the Ruger people it looks like they are availible and at a killer price for the quality!

    Can you elaborate on what is wrong with the looks? Was it something with the way the slide was milled? My old SA had a mis-milled slide (the top radius wasn't centered) and it bugged the cr#p out of me.

    I'm with you on the aesthetics just being...off.

    I think it's just that certain things are just too....

    The sights are a little too tall, the hammer is a little too thin, the serrations are a little too wide. Things that by themselves don't really matter, but together, they really add up.

    I also never cared for an all-stainless gun with black backstrap and beavertail. Black sights are pretty much unavoidable, but the rest should have some consistency.

    I'm sure the gun is just fine, but I want to like to look at a gun, and the SR1911 just doesn't do it for me. But looks are purely subjective. I'm sure plenty of people will/do love it.

    Yeah, that looks a little odd to me as well.

    Personally I like everything about it except the sights. I think it's nice looking and for the right price I would pick one up in a heartbeat,
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    Well others have already sumed up the looks.

    Dragman I do not see what you mean about different? It looks great. Is the two tone throwing you off?

    I like the looks, except for the black slide stop and thumb safety. It gives it cobbled-together-from-spare-parts kinda look?

    Y'know, I actually think it looks better in your pics than in the promotional ones. Plus, the left side looks better than the right, IMHO. Seeing more of the contrast pieces makes a difference.

    Is the hammer lightened? It looks milled out. Or that a trick of the light?

    It's not bad, but there's just something about a clean, smooth 1911.

    I always loved the sexy look of the Dan Wesson Valor, or the Heritage.
