Ruger SR1911 Commander

When Ruger rolled out its SR1911, it was a big deal. So it shouldn't come as any surprise that the company has decided to expand its 1911 line. The logical first step? Releasing the new SR1911 Commander. The Commander has a 4.25" barrel, Novak Style Sights and walnut stocks. Just like its big brother, the Commander is all stainless steel. It ships with a pair of 7-round magazines.

Sheriff Jim Wilson got his hands on the Commander at SHOT Show 2013's Media Day at the Range, and he deemed it a great choice for personal defense, right out of the box. If you know Sheriff Jim, you know that's high praise. Get his full take in the video below:

Went to buy a SR1911 today but the cupboard was bare except for a lone SR1911 Commander. What the heck only 30 bucks more and it felt good in my hand and the trigger is and crisp after take up. Nice piece.

Had my SR1911 Commander for about 2 months now. Great concealed carry gun, I have a Galco KingTuc holster for it. I'm a narrow guy and that combo conceals very nicely. I can even put it on my hip and not the small of my back, which I personally don't like. Gun shoots awesome. Love the light trigger! Wish it was ambidextrous since I'm a lefty, but being a Marine and shooting tons of ARs and all that I'm used to that. Great gun overall and I highly recommend it!

I have the full size and it's a great gun, but a little large to carry. Ruger makes great firearms and best of all they are made in America as all things good are. I want a SR 1911 Commander to go with big brother and to thank Ruger for doing what they do, making great guns at home in the USA.
