    Ruger SR1911 w/Trijicon HD Night Sights

    I recently purchased a Ruger SR1911 (was lucky to find one at $649.99 +tax). It is a sweet-shooting, beautiful version of a 1911 at a very reasonable price. I liked it so much that I decided it was worthy of a sight upgrade (my old eyes asked for them, anyway) and had them fitted with Trijicon HD Night Sights. Result? A lot easier to acquire sight picture and sight alignment. More consistent grouping because it is easier for my eyes to stay focused on the front sight post.

    Not being a 1911 expert, I can't find anything to nitpick, except for the fact that the grips come loose from time to time. From a shooting perspective, I'm as accurate with it as I am with my other .45 and my 9mm, so I'm happy. Only 200 rounds through it so far, but no failures, etc. I've only used inexpensive FMJ rounds so far. I am interested to see how it handles JHP.

    Here are some photos of this popular and reasonably priced 1911:

    Oh, I found a cure for the grips coming loose. Tighten them up a tad bit more. No problems since I grew a pair. Wow.

    lb,

    That is a "rat purdy" Ruger. I like the fact that they choose to not provide the oh-so-trendy front slide serrations. If your scales continue to work loose, a dab of purple or blue loc-tite will cure those ills and still allow you to easily remove the screws when necessary.

    A small piece of fishing line works well too.

    Thank you for this post. I like the lime green background. The sight set looks like they would work very well. Trijicon would be my first choice. However, if I ever see a set of the MMC fixed sights... I'm going to buy them immediately and then go looking for a 1911 to put them on!

    That is a lot of gun for the price.

    I couldn't resist adding Trijicon Night Sights to my Series 1991 Colt Government Model. Now it is practically perfect for me!
