Dual extractors were an interesting feature.

Dude said he had a Linkless that was not for sale. Pretty rare gun I've been told.

Sorta like the Bren Ten, an idea a little before it's time, didn't quite get the execution right. Collector value derived from scarcity and novelty, not function...hence why Glocks aren't collector's items...

I have put just over 4500 rounds of all types through my Ruger Full Size. It is as solid as my Wilson but not as finished and has held up really well. For the $ it is as good as any SA I have and better than my Kimbers. I have changed out some of the parts for Wilson Bullet Proof parts but all in all a go too for anything I will do...

Ruger 1911s are no slouches. I know quite a few satisfied owners.

Yep. Have a good friend who has one, and he swears by it. Never a hiccup. Good bang for the buck, in a Ruger 1911.

Ruger is a $700 pistol that often times sells for more, due to the demand. The fit and finish is not stellar, but they damn sure shoot.

Well, Crap. Went to Cabela's to buy a grill that was on sale. Made the obligatory run by the gun section. Used 1911 caught my eye. Someone bought it, put 50 rds through it, then returned. They put it in the used sections, significant discount. Out the door $825, plus the grill. Came with everything. Loaded Springfield Armory, MC Operater 1911. Added extra: registered for the SA gear thing. Thank goodness for same as cash 12 mos; I could not sneak this in the back door. Wife was like, "UGH". Cleaned and fired yesterday. Flawless. I am still working on the FTG's sight (in the back door), very close. Regardless. Pics.

I suggest a Wilson flat wire spring kit.

When stationed in Hawaii they had Spam on the brain; all about cultural context and it's projection. I prefers a fat filet seared @ 700 degrees.

Funny, and the responses are duly noted.

However, from a grill perspective: Smoked jalapeno poppers stuffed with chorizo, cheese, spices etc. Steak: Sirloin and Filet, with potatoes and squash casserole.

Neighors brought their grills out as well hotdogs, hamburgers, steaks.

Ground "fireworks" are next.

Happy 4th of July and Happy Birthday to our Great Nation.

So I was a little concerned as to "Why", and what did I miss when I read your response. I may have read it but only as a "scan". I Did a search on here and the interwebs. IMFA related (which I must have scanned over when they were written and obviously missed). However, SA and RRA seem to have walked away from IMFA after they say were misinformed, and f'd by the manufacturers association.

So, I now understand.

Executive Management/Leadership and those that "are currently in charge" at SA are most assuredly responsible for their ignorance by not understanding (or at worst hiding their understanding) of the Carve outs (them included) and the ramifications to the other manufacturers and FFL's.

That said, they seem to be making amends, eating crow, etc. and hopefully the Executive leadership team will be well on their way out when said and done regardless of the Bill's status in the future. Illinois is Illinois and Chicago is Chicago so I won't hold out much hope.

I own several SA products, no RRA, and am satisfied with all of them.

Regardless, I am happy with my recent purchase, though I will rethink future purchases until this shakes itself out and or the Executive Management Team cycles (not holding breath).

Hopefully I did not miss anything and I appreciate the reminder.

First and foremost thanks for your Valor and Service.

Just trying to get on board. Who cooks chicken to break in a new grill after buying a 1911?

I would submit, no one.

I'm shooting a 9mm 1911 to test it and write a review on it. Very pleasant to shoot Little recoil almost as soft shooting as a P7.

I have 2 1911's in 9mm. Both Kimbers, very soft shooting, reliable. They shoot like pellet guns.
