    So, I am contemplating this Ruger Commander. I like that it is American made, love Ruger and well, it's a .45:grin:. Anyone own one, if so, what are your thoughts? Also, post pics of any Ruger 1911 that you have along with thoughts. Heck, I'll take your thoughts even if you don't own a Ruger!

    Ruger SR1911 Commander .45, 7rd, Stainless.

    I have a full size sr1911, been great. Shoots flat and seems well made. It honestly needs to get shot more. So far only issue I have had was one of the bushings was a bit buggered up but they sent me a new set at no charge.

    I have been wanting a Ruger for a while now. Missed out on Addicted2gunz's full size 1911 he had listed but, loved the stainless look. This Commander is going to be my new carry as, my 3.5" is going to be moved to my 12yr old.:grin:

    Love mine. Shoots great and no problems. Not a Commander though.

    For some reason, the Ruger's just look sexy to me! Temptation sure is pulling me!!

    I really like the black parts contrasting to the stainless.

    I have the 9mm commander, and don't shoot it near 'nuff! Never had an issue of any sort with it

    My nephew has the 5 inch. the trigger was heavy and creepy until about 600 rounds, then smoothed right out and we didn't have to mess with it. A real bang-for-the buck shooter IMO.

    We have @ 3000 rounds through it.

    72032D65-0E9D-4A19-BF1F-86386448BF6B.jpeg I have the commander and the government size. They were great guns even before I had them customized.The Pistolsmiths who worked on them indicated they were good base guns for custom work as well

    My next Ruger 1911 will most likely be stainless. I couldn't pass up the Talo though, KyGunCo had them for $600 shipped a few months back.

    Really do think they are good 1911s. Cast frames but plenty strong.
