So, I've decided that it will be next on the "gotta have" list.
It's been out awhile now, hows yours working out? Function issues, or finish issues?
Thanks

Have had my full sized SR1911 for about 6 months, over 2k down range of some pretty crappy target loads. I have yet to experience a single FTL/FTE, this is but one of my many 1911‘s and I must say it is a pleasant surprise with fit and finish that rivals My Kimbers. I cannot wait to pick up the commander. The true beauty is that if I really work on a deal I will have bought both the full sized and Commander SR1911‘s for less than a single Kimber. Which if were not a great gun would mean nothing' this is a great gun as accurate and reliable as any. I am hoping that the Commander is equally impressive. I do fear that with the smaller slide it does not become too quick for the cycling of rounds.

Never seen one like this...interesting.

Still love mine and have yet to have an issue. The stainless shows powder near the muzzle after a range session but its as simple as a little solvent and a cloth to get it looking like new. Mine is pictured in my avatar.

Got one of the early ones. Good to go in every respect. I only feed it brass-cased range ammo from Winchester, Federal, Remington, and Monarch. (The Remington tends to send lots of powder flame out the muzzle).

Not one failure of any kind. Shoots better than a Kimber that cost twice as much ... and Kimber tells me their gun has nothing wrong with it.

It is my favorite Bar-B-Que Gun.

Got the full size and was lucky enough to snag a commander a few weeks ago. Both have performed flawlessly so far. The commander doesn't quite have the fit and finish that it's big brother has, but for the cost, I'm completely happy.

Mine has been perfect. I am very happy with it.
