New Ruger 1911 in 9mm

Sturm, Ruger & Company announced Friday the release of the new SR1911 pistol chambered in 9mm.

The lightweight commander-style pistol is a variation of the company’s .45 Auto design, which released in the 100-year anniversary of the ubiquitous 1911 design.

The handgun has an aluminum frame that weighs less than half of the all-stainless steel version, and a stainless slide. It weighs in at 29.3 ounces, has a 4.25-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.75 inches.

The new SR1911 features black rubberized grip panels, a gray anodized frame, three-dot adjustable sights, and it’s equipped with two nine-round magazines.

The Ruger SR1911 chambered in 9mm retails for $979.
