Gun Descriptions

The M1911 (also known as Colt 1911, or Colt Government) is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge. The pistol's formal designation as of 1940 was Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 for the original model of 1911 or Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 for the M1911A1, which was adopted in 1924. The designation changed to Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 in the Vietnam War era. Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting Confederation, and bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons in the U.S. because of the design's relatively slim width and the stopping power[

The Ruger SR1911 is a classically styled pistol designed with modern manufacturing advances. Their precision CNC-controlled machining process results in s superior slide-to-frame fit and smooth slide travel. Positive barrel lock-up allows for superior accuracy out of the box. The lightweight, aluminum, skeletonized trigger features an adjustable over-travel stop and provides a very crisp, light trigger pull with a quick positive reset and has a skeletonized hammer and titanium firing pin for faster lock time. Its extended thumb safety and slide stop lever for improved, positive manipulation. These accept standard, aftermarket 1911 parts and accessories and includes one 8-round and one 7-round stainless steel magazine. Specifications: Weight: 39oz # of Mags: 2 Overall Length: 8.67" Additional Info: Oversized Beavertail Grip Safety Additional Info: Skeletonized Trigger & Hammer Additional Info: Rear Slide Serrations
