This year marks the 75th year that Sturm, Ruger & Company has been manufacturing American firearms. To commemorate this anniversary, special editions of several of its iconic products will roll out through the year. One of them is the 100th anniversary of the Government Model 1911.

First introduced in 2011 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Government Model 1911, the stainless Ruger SR1911 has earned numerous awards as one of the best completely American-made 1911-type pistols.

The diamond anniversary edition of this iconic pistol will be produced in limited numbers and features an attractive, finely detailed, laser-engraved slide that commemorates Ruger's 75th Anniversary and salutes our pride in American craftsmanship. The custom grip panels feature detailed scrollwork to match the engraved slide. Each pistol ships in a specially marked 75th Anniversary lockable case with one 7-round and one 8-round stainless-steel magazine.

The SR1911 includes many desirable features such as a titanium firing pin, extended thumb safety, extended magazine release, oversized beavertail grip safety and a visual inspection port to allow visual confirmation of a round in the chamber. The plunger tube for both the slide stop and thumb safety is integral to the frame and will never shoot loose. The SR1911 uses a skeletonized hammer and an aluminum, skeletonized trigger with an adjustable over-travel stop.

Only 750 of the Anniversary SR1911s will be produced during 2024 and will be identifiable by a special "R75" serial number prefix. See your local independent firearms retailer to reserve yours today.
