    New Ruger SR1911 CMD in 9mm

    O me likey like this gun. After I vet it at the range, I will likely tote it about from time to time. Trigger breaks at 4.0 lbs on my scale. Fit and finish is nice. Not a big fan of the rear slide serrations, but I'll be alright with them. .New Ruger SR1911 CMD in 9mm-img_3245.jpgNew Ruger SR1911 CMD in 9mm-img_3246.jpg

    Nice Grips as well if you are a Marine.

    I'm thinking Always Remember 911 grips if I do pick up a LW CMD 9mm.

    Are the stock grips very thin..or are they regular 1911 grips?

    I had a chance to get my hands on one last weekend at a local gunshow. Very nice pistol.

    Thank you; I am a Marine. The stock rubber grips are just regular 1911 grips. The custom USMC grips were made for me, using my insignia, out of ebony wood by a fellow Marine on 1911forum.com

    After 2 days of Nicks being down, I got approved and just brought it home.

    Not bad in my hands, but my wife's tiny hand seem made for it.

    Pics and some range time to follow.

    Cool, I believe you can get slimmer Ruger grips on shopruger.com if you want.

    They seem to be fine for both of us.

    I'd rather buy a few Wilson 9mm mags than new grips.

    Very nice.

    Most of the .45 acp 1911 seem limited to 7-8 round mags. Is that also the case in 9mm or do they have higher capacity?

    As some have stated.

    The LW CMD arrived dry.

    I found it easy to field strip, lube up lightly and
    re-assemble.

    The slide stop slid right back in,, no idiot mark as of yet.

    Mags would only hold 8 rounds.. with the 9th being tight.

    The only real gripe I have (other than the cardboard box) is the
    fact that the gun could have
    come with some Frog Lube or other oil and a bushing wrench.


    This gun might be a tad heavy for me to carry.

    Like with other guns that I'd love to conceal (GP-100 WC,
    CZ97B, Speed Six, ect) my bad back says otherwise.


    However..my wife loves the fact that the can rack the slide...
    and she would have no problem packing this stainless
    beauty if she had the proper holster.

    She likes shoulder holsters.

    As for carry a load.

    It will only be Double Tap.. and I have 4 choices in my ammo
    collection.

    1: Double Tap 115 grain Barnes TAC-XP solid copper
    hollowpoint. The same bullet as loaded by Cor-Bon
    and the Barnes or other TAC-XP related defensive
    ammo.


    2: Double Tap's 124 grain Bonded Defense (Speer
    Gold Dot) JHP.

    3: Double Tap's 147 grain Bonded Defense JHP.


    4: DT's 147 grain Controlled Expansion Jacketed Hollow
    Point bullet. Very accurate in the past.


    Both the TAC-XP and Gold Dot are popular defensive
    loads by both citizens and the police.

    I guess we will shoot some of each and see what both feeding, recoil
    and accuracy show.

    I've read that the LW CMD will feed about any quality JHP ammo.

    The SR1911 9mm CMD ships with 2 9-rd flush fit mags. You can buy 10 rd Wilson mags for sure. Others might have 10 rd mags avail too.

    Well, we have been trying to get to the local indoor range for a few days.

    As he has not been feeling too well, I was the only one that shot the new
    LW CMD 9mm today.

    I forgot the camera, but not the Federal and Double Tap Ammo.

    My lone target was of 4 silohuettes (sp?) in orange on a cream background.

    The first two mags were Federal 115 grain FMJ.

    The CMD has a nice trigger pull for a stock 1911..
    and @ my usual 15 yards...

    I was able to get some tight clusters.

    Next up was the Double Tap 147 grain controlled expansion
    JHP. This shot very nice for head shots on the target.

    Double Tap's 124 grain +P was the next load.

    This stuff isn't the stoutest 9mm I've ever shot, but
    you can feel it.

    Pretty decent for head shot with 2 shots in the tiny head
    and 1 flyer to the right.

    I'm used to shooting striker-fired pistols (XD-S, Mod 2)
    PPS M2) so I think that I tend to mash the trigger a bit.

    When I slowed down my accuracy improved and the gun
    shot Spot On, even for my againg ahnds and eyesight.

    Moving up the the DT 147 grain Gold Dot, the gun didn't
    mumble or fumble as it gobbled up 3 rounds of the heavier
    stuff and printed them neatly into the tiny head on the right.

    This had the most recoil of out any load today, and it really
    shakes up my RAMI when I shoot it. Pretty powerful for
    a 9mm load.


    So, all along I'd been impressed with the accuracy of this
    new gun.

    For about 6 years the DT 115 grain TAC-XP has been my normal
    carry load for 9mms.

    3 of the the TAc-XPs sailed out of the LW CMD and gave me a nice
    group in the lower torso's head.

    Wow, this thing can shoot!

    Recoil wasn't an issue with any of the loads, and even the
    77 grain Lead Free JHP didn't balk at sliding up the feed ramp.

    I've shot this lighter load in a few 9mms, and the LW CMD
    has less muzzle flash and blast than those previous,
    but it was still there.

    This pretty much roars out of your gun @ 1,600 fps..
    or so.

    Unlike some have reported, this gun didn't seem to need
    any break-in period.

    I thought I might have some problems with the 2 stock mags..
    yet they perked right along.

    I'm truly sure that a 1911 guy or gal could wring out even more
    from this gun, but it will pass the muster for range or carry.

    Add a HBE leather or a Black Arch kydex holster and one would be set.

    A superb piece of Ruger workmanship for the price paid!
