posted on November 4, 2017

The Ruger SR1911 in 10 mm Auto provides for a power upgrade over John Browning’s original M1911 chambering. Finished in matte stainless, this model features a 5” nitride-treaded barrel and Bomar-style adjustable sights that help with the pistol's capability in the field. Ruger utilizes a full-length guide rod and bushingless lockup on this model, along with series 70 internals. Controls are standard M1911, and magazine capacity is eight rounds.
