Is this your first 1911?
I'm just wondering what your take is on Ruger's trigger. I read a write up on the Ruger SR1911; and the writer said it had a heavy trigger.
6lb if I recall, plus it wasn't 1911 smooth & crisp, but gritty.

I know you aren't referring to me but the trigger feels might smooth to me! Might be around 5lbs but you always change that

Where it stands right now it's about 5.5 pounds, however I have only put about 100 rounds through it so far. Once I get it through some more range time I'll figure out if I want to make a trigger adjustment. It's a solid gun though and for the price its excellent.

Ruger, Remington or RIA IMHO are the best choices for the budget minded. Those are 1911s that are dependable and shoot everytime.

Mine was 675 + tax at my LGS. I haven't seen any cheaper than that round here in NC. The local range had theirs going for 740. I don't really see them dropping in price anytime soon.
