colt's 1911s. colt slides and frame are milled from billets. 500-600 tops is a fair price for what ruger is offering i would not pay over 600 for one considering its mainly investmemt cast.
just my opinion.
one good thing with rugers is if your pinned down and bored you can always read the warnings. take a few hours. i think there is more printing on a ruger than the library of congress...
