Unboxing the Ruger SR1911 by Robert Farago | May 05, 2011 | 20 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Barrel bushing wrench. comments Foghorn says: May 5, 2011 at 18:12 I hear there are some cheap guns down there in Mexico… Reply NT_ says: May 5, 2011 at 20:03 Which are now, apparently, well-lit. Reply Chris Dumm says: May 5, 2011 at 18:15 1911s have about half an acre of flat, engravable metal on the sides of the slide. I’m relieved Ruger didn’t ruin it by laser-engraving their entire owner’s manual there. Reply Ryan Finn says: May 5, 2011 at 18:28 Amen to that. I hate when a gun has a damn billboard on each side of the slide. Reply Logan DeBorde says: May 5, 2011 at 19:40 That made me think of those toy guns where “Bang” drops down from the barrel. I could see someone substituting “Bang” for an advertisement. Though if it subsidized my ammo costs I might look into it… Reply John Fritz says: May 5, 2011 at 22:06 Much like the good folks at Beretta USA did to my Italian Inox? I have a few guns that are dicked up from lawyer-directed engraving but that 92 has me the most pissed about it. Reply Brandon says: May 5, 2011 at 18:48 Thanks for the review of the box and instruction manual. Reply Robert Farago says: May 5, 2011 at 19:38 As Sam says, sarcasm is the tearing of the flesh. Ouch. Reply IndyEric says: May 5, 2011 at 21:54 Mwahaha! Reply Gunnutmegger says: May 5, 2011 at 22:02 Whoa. No way! A bushing wrench? I thought there was no need for such a thing… Reply Patrick Carrube says: May 5, 2011 at 23:34 Well, there is no need for the “UpLula”, the little magazine-loader included with all XD/XDm’s, and similar contraptions – but they sell tons of them and give them away free with millions of pistols. Not needed, but some people use them… Reply me says: May 19, 2011 at 17:39 Yours didn’t, maybe. My XD45 came with magazines that were shaving sharp all the way around the top of the tube and a monstrous spring. It took several full load-unload cycles before I could get more than ten rounds out of a stated thirteen-round capacity without using the tool, and the mag springs are still stout enough to make #13 a challenge. Reply dave says: May 5, 2011 at 22:21 What is the huge green dot on the left side of the frame in front of the slide stop? Reply RecoveringAtheist says: May 6, 2011 at 10:15 The green dot I assume is an inspection “mark” that the factory uses. All of my various Rugers have had one, many w/ a red dot as well. Reply RalphRotten says: May 6, 2011 at 21:10 yup..my LC-9 had the green dot too… ..glad I didn’t get the red dot, tho… Reply rugeryawn says: May 7, 2011 at 03:53 3:52 of……yawn…stuff in the box? Come on, show the steel earlier in the film to make me want to stay for the end. Reply SR1911 Owner says: May 11, 2011 at 21:43 I bought one on Saturday and couldn’t be happier with it….except for the ambi safety that I’m going to have added. I’ve been looking for an ‘entry level’ 1911 for months, and i’m glad I waited. This is a great gun, and it’s 100% made in the USA. Win/win. Reply Andy says: May 13, 2011 at 02:58 Can’t wait for an all black version. I don’t like shiney guns. Reply Scott says: May 26, 2011 at 19:01 Where did you find one? They seem to be out of stock everywhere online. Thanks for the video. Reply Gary D says: August 3, 2012 at 09:45 Although I sincerely appreciate your time and effort, I think I’d rather try to untangle a spider web than sit through another video like this. There was virtually nothing in your video that I couldn’t have gleaned from Ruger’s website and/or countless blogs. If you decide to do something similar, maybe you could take a few minutes to think about what people may actually want to see/hear and ensure that your lighting/backdrop is suitable. Anyway…….thanks for trying. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
