The SA mil-spec is great if you get the NM version it USUALLY is fit together better. The range officer is a good gun to. Not a fan of the target sights though. I like the SAs better than the the Remington but not the Ruger.

Don't know about everyone else, but my non NM is more accurate than I am, and fits very nicely.

You should have finished my sentence as I said USUALLY. Not always I admit. The NM guns are assembled in the US with better quality control. From the dozens of SAs I have handled and shot the NM guns are better in most cases. Congrats on getting an N with good quality.

I meant no offense, I'm simply pointing out that the stock version is perfectly fine.

the biggest problem i see right now is the demand for the Rugers and them being able to produce and supply them. i have had the chance to handle and look over the R1 and it seems like a very nice and well made pistol. i would like to see a Ruger in person and handle it before i cast a vote on it. Ruger has a good reputation for quality firearms, lets see how they do in the long run with the 1911 style pistols. time and lots of ammo will tell the true story.

I own both of them and the range officer.I bought both the R! and the Ruger when they were first introduced,thus,cheap! The ruger has a little better finish,I like the sights better and both are very reliable.The R1 is not the enhansed version.just the basic,very clean,and aside for the sights,true to the original.The Range officer is completly different,it's a target gun and very good!

I picked up a para gu expert last summer aswell that ran like a champ put 1500 thru in in about a month and a half and not a prob on session she got 500 at once and not so much as a hiccup.

Finish is crap no dancing around it but for 500 bucks it's not a bad piece.

Those range officers look nice tho I have to day..

I've had my Ruger almost 2 weeks and I should have about 1000 rounds through it by the end of the weekend and so far not even a hint of an issue. I've been shooting a variety of ammo through it, reloads, steel case anything I can find, just to see what it can handle. Price was not an issue in selecting it, I read every review, article and range report I could find and there are lots of positives and very few negatives. I handled several other 1911's and the Ruger just felt better in my hand. Close second was the Remington and Springfield but when it came time to buy, looks and positive reviews won out. As good as it looks in photos, it looks even better in person.

I went with the Ruger SR1911. I called around to see what the prices were for the Remington's and asked if anyone had the Ruger. I couldn't believe it when one shop said that they just got one in and they were just about to put it on the shelf. So I told them to hold it and I'd be right over. Well, it was almost a 2 hour drive, but well worth it! And only $740 total, out the door. I've heard that they've been going for $750-850 (pre-tax) due to the availability and demand. Great gun, it cleaned up real nice. I can't wait to get it out to the range!

nice looking Ruger! let us know how it performs. glad you found one, as of so far i haven't even seen one in person yet. seems as demand is higher than the supply! seems like a decent price and glad the dealer didn't rape you over it considering that they are in such demand. enjoy it, i would!
