She's not the full size 1911, she's the CMD version. I really like the way she fits my hand. However, after a closer inspection the slide to frame fit in the back isn't really great and whoever did the crowning on the barrel was having a bad day. It's all cosmetic but it still bothers me a little. I might try to re-crown the barrel myself.

I would hardly call the crown on the barrel cosmetic. I'd definitely be looking to get that corrected ASAP.
However, it appears you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.
Here's hoping that 2014 continues the trend.

Good Swap!

Sparky, I had to go back & re-read your post. I thought at first that you said you got the new gun "for" your wife. I wondered how you were able to make a "swap" like that! (haha)

Since she got it for you--sounds like she's someone you can be mighty proud of & want to hold on to--no swapping.

I hope that God continues to Bless both of you in the New Year.

Crown Problem

Postby erle » Tue Dec 31, 2013 6:13 pm

Sparky, I was going to post a photo of my SR1911 CMD because I noticed the same problem with the end of the barrel. I took some fine emery cloth & polished mine to remove the rough spots & it looks like new. I took photo's of before & after, but Darwin said I needed a special program in order to post photo's here. Sorry about that, but you might can do the same with your barrel.

It's already on it's way to Ruger. They made it, they can fix it.

Sparky, I bought one of the SR1911 CMD models about 4 months ago. I do not see a crowning problem with it, but I do agree that the slide fit to frame is not that tight. It is a great shooter though. I have a Tisas full size 1911 that I bought about a year ago. For a low end 1911, it is a real tight fit between slide and frame. It shoots pretty good too, but not as good as the SR.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes you to get it back from Ruger.

No, you need to post photos or videos somewhere and post the link to it here. Check your personal messages.

When I refer to the Slide to Frame fit, I mean that when I jack the Slide, at least to me, the Slide didn't go forward enough to be flush with the Frame. The Slide was "proud" of the Frame by about 3/32", initially I thought there was an obstruction preventing the Slide from going forward enough, i.e. I thought the gun wasn't into battery position. That + a 10yr old could have done a better job of crowning the barrel.
It's on it's way back to Ruger and I never even got to fire a shot off.

This is what I'm talking about.

That's a shame Sparky, but I'm sure they will fix it. Another shame is that manufactures let stuff go out the door without making shure it is right in the first place. Even if it is just cosmetic, it should be right.
