Ruger sr1911 or Remington r1 enhanced?
 
I've been given an unbelievable deal of trading my Armscor made 1911a1 plus $400 on either one of these beauties (probably less cash on the Ruger). Which one should I pick?

You cant lose on either. I like rugers customer service. Instead of sending the gun in they sent me a new mag latch. Easy

first off, the Ruger SR1911 has been elusive for me! but general concensus is that it's a pretty dang good pistol. i do have firsthand knowledge of the Remington R1 Enhanced, as i bought one a few weeks ago and have found it to be a pleasure to own and shoot. very, very accurate, very good fit and finish and has eaten every round i have fed it without even a hiccup. IMO, though i am biased towards the R1, either one could be a good trade. maybe just flip a coin to decide? maybe it might be the decision between blued or stainless. the R1 Enhanced only comes in a blued finish currently and the SR1911 only comes in a stainless finish currently.

I wish I had that problem :-)

I'd probable go with the Ruger, but I'm partial to all thing Ruger.

If I could get either for the same money, I'd go with the R1 Enhanced.

guys, given that i own the R1 Enhanced and very pleased with it i will say this, the day i bought mine, i went to purchase a Colt Commander they had but it had sold a few days prior to me getting back to my LGS. well the SR1911 and the R1 were on my list of 1911's to possibly purchase at a future time. the SR1911 has availability problems in my neck of the woods and the R1's seem to be easier to come by. had they had the SR1911, i might have bought it instead. i have a few Rugers and am pleased with them enough i might have chosen the SR1911 over the R1. well i bought the R1 and have no regrets for doing so. i am very pleased with it, and i am sure that when i come across a SR1911 and buy it, i will be just as pleased with it.

Go with the SR1911. I've had my name on the waiting list for months and no one can seem to get one in.

I'd say keep your Rock Island and put the $400 toward a Rock Island tactical that will be fitted as good or better then the other two choices, the Rock Island tactical can be had for under $475 nickle finished if you like.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

Nah, I'm not that happy with my current gun. Lots of Ftf and fte, problems upon problems. IMO, a gun should work out of the box regardless of make and model. With the technology used to produce firearms today they shouldnt have the problems that mine does. It's imported by Taylor's & co., not RI. Same gun though. I've wanted the Ruger since they came out, but I'm digging the Remington now pretty good.

Just curious have you tried changing to a higher quality spring set and extractor I had a lot of the same issues with my American classic 1911 changed to Wilson combat springs with a 22 pound recoil spring fixed the problem right away and I haven't had any other issues
