I think you can do better for $800...like the R1 Enhanced, or maybe a nice Springfield. The Ruger is a nice gun though. I have the matte stainless SR1911 and it's a sharp looking and reliable shooter.
If your heart's set on the Ruger, please do yourself a favor and inspect it carefully. The last two that showed up at my LGS had an unacceptable amount of lateral slide slop. Yes, both. And not just a little bit. They were two of the worst QC examples I've seen among all the 1911s I've looked over.
