    “I am excited about this addition to our Custom Shop lineup,” said Team Ruger Captain Doug Koenig. “Just like its 9mm Luger counterpart, this .45 Auto model is full of industry-leading features and fully machined, hand-fitted parts. A must-have for all 1911 aficionados! I cannot wait to hit the competition circuit with it.”

    Standard features on the Custom Shop SR1911 Competition pistol include a fiber optic front sight and adjustable serrated rear target sight for match speed and accuracy; undercut trigger guard and beavertail grip safety for a comfortable high hold designed to reduce muzzle flip; and an ambidextrous safety and extended magazine release.

    That's really odd that they just put that up as it's very old news.

    A LOT of money for an untested gun. I saw Doug shooting his last August and it looked nice... too nice. To the point where i don't think it was a Ruger, just marked as such. Looks like the gun in the picture, but I'm skeptical. The rest of the Guys shooting for Ruger had what looked like standard Ruger 1911's, though I'm sure worked over. That's what made me think He had a custom gun marked Ruger, then Ruger produced something that looks like his gun. Just a theory though.
    John Valuk is dead. He fell on his head.

      I’ve got a few Ruger 1911’s, I like them. This looks like there is very little stock Ruger on it and I’m not on board with the $2500 Ruger pistol quite yet.

      Interesting, if they’re looking at a new market, more power to them.

        I too have a SR1911. I like the gun - it’s a solid non-bank busting firearm.

        But 2500 for a Ruger? For a few bucks more aren’t I approaching Ed Brown, STI, Dan Wesson (for sure), etc. territory?

        Let me know when it’s 1750 or less. Then I’ll get all tingly.
