Competition Ready Guns from Ruger Custom Shop – SHOT Show 2019

SHOT show 2019 – Doug Koenig talked to us about a couple new offering from the Ruger Custom Shop. They are taking their standard products and turning them into competition ready firearms, all that’s missing is a shooter guide to the winners circle. Both offerings are available now

Fiber optic front sight and match adjustable rear make for a great sight picture

The Ruger Custom Shop “Koenig” SR1911 is a highly customized hand fitted 9mm that is factory ready for action in IDPA, USPSA, IPSC or Steel Challenge. The slide to frame fit and barrel lockup is tight, but smooth, ensuring outstanding accuracy. A flat faced custom trigger is used to trip the sear and drop the hammer, which are match units designed by the World Champion shooter Doug Koenig himself.  The front and rear slide cocking serrations match the cutout in the adjustable trigger, nice touch.

Custom Shop logo accents the polished stainless slide and black accents

The grip features a generously undercut trigger guard, aggressive grips, a checkered front strap, high well blended beavertail and a checkered mainspring housing to ensure a secure comfortable grasp. This gun leaves little else to be desired; the lines and finish are beautiful, it features a TechWell magwell for rapid reloads, fully adjustable sights, and an ambi thumb safety.

The other Custom shop offering is the 10/22 Competition. This rifle is also built to be taken from the box and put into competition with nothing else needed but your favorite optic. It features oversized controls for operating the bolt and making speedy reloads.

The hard anodized aluminum receiver has an integral 30 MOA rail and a rear cleaning port to allow running the rod from the chamber down the barrel. The 16 1/8 inch free floated cold hammer forged fluted barrel is threaded 1/2×28 at the muzzle for adding a suppressor or a muzzle break if desired.

Stock and receiver design compliment each other for competition fit

The laminated, textured stock has an adjustable cheek piece to ensure proper eye alignment with the optic.  The Black Nitrited Match bolt is released with quick pull to the rear releasing it from the Match Bolt Release; sending the bullets on the way to the target is handled by a nice BX-Trigger.

    The handgun reminds me of a P89 with some upgraded improvements, great looking handgun.
