They look large and cumbersome but after handling a number of them they begin to feel like an extension of the shooter and their inner beauty shines through. I also like the more affordable ticket price offered on this weapon as opposed to some of its competition...
I'd say it would be a good starter 1911 but i'm certainly not gonna say it's the last one i'm gonna buy. Once i get my confidence with the platform/round up i will probably look into a Colt/S&W or maybe even a Springfield. Never really considered a Kimber as IMO they are too hyped up by fan boys. Some may say thats a bad reason to not consider but thats just the way i am, i avoid fan boys like the plague. Now there are fan boys of every gun maker BUT some ALOT less than others.

Everything I've heard, seen, and read about this firearm is great stuff. Unfortunately, these are still very scarce in my hometown. I'll be having to wait to add one to my collection. Nice report btw..

Thanks man, just trying to give something back for all the help received during my AR build. As for availability they are pretty scarce around here too. I literally got lucky as I was in Gander picking some ammo the morning they got nine of them in. I put it on layaway without flinching. Those nine were sold out within two hours the guy was telling me when I made my first payment haha.

Pretty much the way it works here at my local shop however when they get something in that is a hot item like this one, they tend to pull their policy on lay-away. This makes it even harder on us to catch them when they come in.

Gratz again to ya for getting one. Ruger did it right when they made this gun. Good price and very well made. Taurus is not even close in my opinion.

I actually looked at getting a Taurus before the Ruger came out. The guy at Gander was telling me S&W sold them all their tooling so it was "basically" a S&W. I have a Taurus PT92 which is another gun that Taurus purchased the old Beretta factory in Brazil with all the tooling. But i can tell ya they are close BUT not the same. I purchased a Beretta 92 Blackhawk serpa holster and it fits but the trigger guard must be just a little thicker as the lock will not engage. I do know i can drop a Beretta barrel in though.

I got lucky with my PT92 as it has been nothing but reliable but after reading all the hit or miss stats of Taurus i will not be trying my luck with them again.Really sucks cuz their prices are really reasonable but oh well.

Now I'm thinking about getting one of these for my first 1911. Thanks for the range report.

My neighbor bought one. He loves it. I shot it. I like it. Functioned flawlessly as one would expect of a Ruger.

If I were in the market for yet another 1911....this is where I'd spend my money.

The last 1911 I bought was the new Remington. Wouldn't feed a whole magazine without a FTF or FTE. After throating, polishing, new extractor, then a new ejector, it still won't run. POS.

Go Ruger!
