Ruger Announces SR1911 9mm & Suppressor Ready Mark IV Pistols


    As we continue to inch closer and closer to SHOT Show one day at a time, Ruger is opening the floodgates on all of the new firearms they will be tantalizing us with, in 2018. They have announced a flurry of firearms so far, but they have even more pistols to show us.

    Ruger SR1911 Lightweight officer 9mm

    Ruger has many government and commander sized model 1911s in their line-up, but this is the 1st officer-style size they have produced. Utilizing an aluminum frame and chambered for 9mm, this pistol only weighs 27.2 ounces which is very lean for any 1911. The deluxe checkered G10 grips are pretty eye-catching as well. The MSRP of the Ruger SR1911 Lightweight Officer 9mm is set for $979.

    • Stainless Steel Slide & Anodized Aluminum Frame
    • Drift Adjustable, Novak® 3-Dot Sights
    • Deluxe Checkered G10 Grips
    • 3.6″ Barrel w/ 6-Groove 1:10″ Right-Hand Twist
    • 27.2 Ounces

    With the introduction of the 9mm cartridge into their Target series of SR1911 pistols, this now makes for  3 caliber choices for consumers: .45 ACP, 10mm or 9mm. With many similar features as previous Target models of theirs, this iteration most notably has different slide serrations (deeper, more angled cuts) and has Ruger‘s fancier deluxe checkered G10 grips. The Ruger SR1911 Target 9mm is currently retailing for $1,019.

    • Low Glare Stainless Finish on Slide & Frame
