Well I bought another 1911

I just picked up a new Ruger LW Commander and I am very happy with it. So far I have only put 150 rounds through it but there was zero malfunctions and the accuracy was very good at 15 yards . I also made myself a new holster just because I wanted one.

Great looking pistol, have heard sometimes the triggers on those need a little work. Good to hear the range report. Seems like a really good pistol for the money.
Do you know how much it weighs? Oh and great looking holster!

I have been wanting the Navy SEAL "Talo" Edition of the SR1911.

The trigger on this particular gun breaks at 4.5 pounds on my trigger scale with little or no play and I believe after a few hundred more rounds it will improve from that. The claimed weight of the pistol is 27 ounces. I think this ones a Keeper
