The new Ruger Custom Shop dropped its inaugural offerings recently, releasing high-grade versions of the company’s popular 10-22 and SR1911.
“Our customers have been craving high-end performance variations of our popular models for a long time,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and CEO. “We are thrilled to respond to the call and bring the Ruger Custom Shop to fruition. We are confident that these new products represent the very best in craftsmanship and performance.”
Ruger tapped competitive shooters, hunters and award-winning writers, along with its own team of engineers, to develop exclusive firearms for competition, hunting and personal defense. Custom Shop offerings begin with the launch of the SR1911 Competition Pistol and 10/22 Competition Rifle.
Ruger Custom Shop SR1911
Developed with input from Ruger Shooting Team Captain Doug Koenig, the Custom Shop SR1911 features a full-sized frame and is chambered in 9 mm. The pistol is built to compete in IDPA, IPSC, USPSA, Bianchi Cup and more.
“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Ruger’s first-class engineers to develop this pistol,” said Doug Koenig, Team Ruger Captain. “New and accomplished competition shooters alike will find this to be one of the finest, feature-rich 1911 pistols available. This firearm was designed and built to win.”
The SR1911 features a Koenig Shooting Sports low-mass hammer and competition sear, flat-faced trigger shoe, precision-machined disconnector and hand-tuned sear spring. A hand-fitted slide and upgraded sights and magazine well round out the package.
