With the 100'th yr anniversary of the 1911 coming up, would be a great time for Ruger to introduce their version. I hope they include it in Stainless for us crows to caw about....
Ruger are you listening?:biglaugh: JMHO!
If they did make it cast, it would probably try to compete with the Para GI (cast) , but likely they will try to dude it up like the Taurus, giving it a newer edge style. All in all, it would probably be heavy, like any other Ruger. If that is the case, sounds like a new candidate for a steady .45 Super gun to me!
I hope a mag disconnect or strange firing pin safety is not in the works...:barf:
I’m pretty darn confident Ruger will not be making 1911’s… I was also pretty confident they’d never make a decent ultra small/reliable pocket .380 and I never would have considered them as a contender to make a ultra-light polymer framed revolver either. Now that they are on the AR stage… it seems pretty obvious that they have some creative brains at work in their R&D that are keeping a close eye on “trends” in the market (and I think that after 100 years, the 1911 is a pretty well entrenched trend).
