Anyone have the Ruger SR1911 Officer-Style?
Does anyone here have the SR1911 Officer model? I'm particularly interested in the Stainless model, but input on any of them is appreciated.
I have a soft spot for compact 1911's. My first 1911 was a Colt Defender. It ran well if I held it in a white-knuckle death grip, but otherwise had a lot of stovepipe FTE's. My Springfield TRP and Champion have been flawless. So I guess the only "opening" I have now is for an Officer's model. I'm also a huge fan of bull barrels, so that's also a plus.
I doubt I'll ever own another 3-inch 1911 like the Defender, but the Officer's has my attention. Even Wilson Combat says that 3.5 inches is the shortest barrel that can run reliably.
