The final update...

My local dealer did finally get this pistol returned to Davidson's in spite of no assistance from the original dealer. Davidson's replaced the gun with a brand-new one, which is now in my possession.

I think there is an omen here. I was not meant to have a 10mm semi auto pistol. :(

It is history. (Meaning, I sold it.)

That's a shame WAYNO :( No one should have to go thru that with a new Ruger. At least it all worked out, sort of...

What a disappointing ending. I also sold my SR. Also reliability and function issues. I decided to keep the Sig P220 10mm. Dead on reliable. So sorry it didn’t work out for us WAYNO. Good luck to other owners of this platform. It is a neat concept....

Sorry to see these endings. I wanted a 10mm Ruger one day. Now, not so much.

Don't give up. I will always say mine was the best shooting 1911 ever. I cannot for a second think they would not figure out the bugs, or isolate a batch of affected models.

Maybe you should sell it & use the funds to finance another 10mm from a different manufacturer. It bothers me knowing the time & money you spent to get this outcome.

Sell the new Ruger and get a Coonan 10mm. I don’t own one, but I recently had the chance to fire one and it is really quite something.

This is disappointing. I was strongly considering buying a Ruger 1911 in 10mm when I return to the states. Now, not so much.

It depends on what you intend to do with this platform or any other 1911 chambered in 10mm. If you are shooting standard pressure and slightly elevated pressure loads you will probably be okay and have no problems. Now, if you are planning on shooting the higher pressure hunting loads you may have issues. I’m not just talking about the Ruger. I had issues with Colt and Kimber offerings as well. I am just speaking from my experience. Also, several good gunsmith’s I know
don’t recommend the 1911 platform for these high pressure hunting loads.

After many years of searching and testing a lot of platforms for the 10mm I have settled on the Sig P220 SAO platform. It’s a brute and maybe too big for many folks, but handles anything you feed it.

As I said, if you are shooting standard loads, you should enjoy the Ruger SR1911 10mm. It is very accurate and soft shooting.

Just followed this thread through from the beginning. What an "adventure".

So now that you have a new pistol, how are you going to treat it? If I had bought a 10mm pistol I would expect, as you did, for it to function trouble-free with any and all SAAMI full-spec ammo, not the .40S&W-like stuff.

What are standard loads?! I hope that you don't refer to the fake FBI sub 500Ft lbs loads!! I had a Glock 40 that I bought for competiton-didn't work out- I gave it to my sister who likes it a lot and mostly used 500Ft lbs loads with it. I did use some Buffalo Bore Outdoorsman 220 Grain Hard Cast ammo (just over 700ftlbs) without problems. I got a Ruger Blackhawk 10mm as I want to do some hand loads and as it's a lot more fun to shoot.

The lack of robustness and shootability are why I didn't consider buying a Glock 20. A friend has a Springfield Armory XD(M) and it has no issues with the Outdoorsman rounds. It's a nice pistol and fun to shoot.

Has he fired any “high performance” loads in it?

I have one sitting new in the box that I won at an NRA banquet. I better get it out and see if I have any issues with it!! I like the 10mm, I have a S&W 1006 that has functioned fine. Thanks everyone for all of the good info.

.


- Which is as good an endorsement as any for buying exclusively through Davidson's. 8) 8) 8)

BTW, I printed these pages out and sent them over to the Plant Manager and a QM at Prescott. I know he read them as he called me with a few comments. (there is no such animal as "10mm+P" and engineering is looking at a relief radius cut on the lug, etc). He also endorsed Davidson's as they are vested in Ruger and report regularly on returns and replacements.
