Has anyone heard whether Ruger intends to make a 9mm 1911? I have a full-size SR1911 and love it. I was hoping that Ruger would follow up with a 9mm with perhaps a target rear sight. It would complement my .45 very well.
It's on my wish list from them. I'd take one in full-size and one as a commander. I was hoping for something like this to pop up, but other than the railed full-size nothing. I got tired of waiting and bought both from Springfield in the Range Officer series.
I was hoping for a LW CMD in 9mm but haven't heard anything. Over the last year I have picked up a couple ROs. Even in gun stores if you wait for sales you can find them for less than $750 down here thus you can look before you buy.
Interesting with Ruger as way back they came out with the P89 in 9mm then the P90 in .45.
I have a couple SR1911s and both are nice but one is just more accurate than the other; sort of impressive. I was thinking of calling Novak about that adjustable sight that looks close to what comes on the Ruger.
Ruger released a new low cost AR rifle recently. I wonder where a 9mm SR falls into their growth strategy? LCR's seem to be very popular, I wonder how many of those Ruger sells? Certainly from a self defense POV, the light weigh and lower cost would make them attractive to many people.
