The thefirearmblog.com has captured an image of Ruger’s 1911 from an upcoming issue of Guns & Ammo previewed in Shooting Times. And what do we learn from this? Not much, except that Ruger is cashing in on the 1911 mania sweeping gun nation. Then again, there’s not a whole lot you can do with a gun design that was pretty much set in stone 100 years ago. The bottom line will be . . . the bottom line. Remington launched its R1 1911 at a slightly sub-$1k price tag. If Ruger can bring in this bad boy closer to the $500 mark with the same quality, it should be a slam dunk. Oh, and note to Guns & Ammo: please return TTAG’s “The Truth About . . .” tagline when you’re done. Tx.
