We have a used Ruger SR1911 semi-automatic pistol for sale. This is chambered in 45ACP with a 4″ barrel. It comes as shown in pictures with one 7 round magazines and soft case. This is in Good Used Condition.
Design-wise, it is nearly identical to the M1911A1. After the gun is fired, the recoil energy sends the slide rearward slightly. At this point, a dropping link under the barrel pivots the barrel’s rear down, out of locking lug recesses in the slide, and the barrel is stopped by making contact with the lower barrel lugs against the frame’s vertical impact surface. As the slide continues rearward, a claw extractor pulls the spent casing from the firing chamber and an ejector strikes the rear of the case, pivoting it out and away from the pistol. The slide stops and is then propelled forward by a spring to strip a fresh cartridge from the magazine and feed it into the firing chamber. At the forward end of its travel, the slide locks into the barrel and is ready to fire again.
