    2011 w/Glock Mags

    There is definitely room for improvement in the way it is.

    2011 w/Glock Mags

    So, the thread is about a 1911 and glock mags, not striker-fired. The idea is to pair a nice 1911 type trigger with a reliable, readily available magazine. The Hudson is striker fired, so it is out. Not everybody wants to pay 2-3K for a pistol and then $100 and up for each mag, even if they can afford it.

    2011 w/Glock Mags

    Obsessiveshooter has a point. Cheap, reliable double stack mags for the 2011 is a worthy goal. It does not take into account the wide availability of Glock mags and cross-compatibility with a shooter’s other guns. For example: I bought a Ruger PC9 last Friday and had all the mags I needed to shoot matches on Saturday and Sunday. That may not have been the case if I had to chase down a fringe Mecgar product on a holiday Friday afternoon. But hell, if Mecgar wants to make ‘em for my RIA Tac9, I’d buy ‘em.

    2011 w/Glock Mags

    I certainly don’t claim to have thought of it first. It is just one of those ideas that makes sense. I was at a match with my new Ruger PC9 and a guy noticed it and said that he has one of the old ones with the Ruger mags and when they decided to go Glock compatible, everyone wanted one and it became a hit. So... I said, “Someone should do a double stack 2011 the same way.” and we both knew right away that it sounded like a good idea. As far as grip angle, it will be whatever it has to be to make it work and that will be ok. If it can be done, I think it would be a hit.

    You got your engineering degree from Hershey?

    2011 w/Glock Mags

    All sacred cows aside, it would probably be a 1911-ish slide, hammer, and trigger, and a glock-ish grip. But with 3D mfg and CAD design, how hard can it to put the chocolate and the peanut butter together?

    Who wouldn’t love to have a 1911 type trigger and glock mags?

    2011 w/Glock Mags

    Does anyone make a 2011 pistol that uses Glock double stack mags? If so, who? And if not, why not?

    Ruger PC9 Wish List

    Lol. You are not half wrong.

    Ruger PC9 Wish List

    Things I would like change about the Ruger carbine: The stock. Needs a stock that fits AR style grips and collapsible butt and possibly includes magwell and mag release. Mag release relocation. Something that puts the mag release in range of the trigger finger. (Duh!) Barrel mounted, cantilever optics base. Right where the rear sight mount already sits on the barrel. No use putting optics on the reciever on a takedown, is it? Trigger group. Why didn’t the designers use the whole BX trigger? Floating barrel, AR handguard. Basically a Nordic kit for the PC. Or a SR-22 rifle in 9mm. Same thing.

    Black Friday Ruger PC Under 400

    Brought one home from Academy for $432.99 w/tax. Not a bad deal. Nifty little gun. Too bad about the mag release location. Can’t wait to upgrade the trigger and shoot some steel. Just ran 50 rds of Rem UMC 115gr through it at the range. No hiccups w/Glock 17 and 33 rd mags. Points well w/vortex viper. Great deal for the money.
