Ruger SR1911 review

Ed Head of Downrange TV reviewed Ruger SR1911 

From: Down Range TV


  1. Ruger SR1911 front sight,
    09/23/2013 . I purchased this gun about two months ago, I give this gun a 9 out of 10 overall it's a very well made & thought out 1911. On my 2nd trip to the range the front sight broke off. I never dropped it or hit it. I called ruger they sent me a new sight. I installed it went to the range it was perfect...Now yesterday I took it to the range had a great day shooting I packed up went home on opening the soft case my 1911 was in to my surprise the sight was again broken..Has anybody ever had this happen?? I"m assuming because the sight is made of graphite maybe that's why?? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.. Scott

    1. Time to get a new front sight? Look at and see if there is one you like.
