    Been on the waiting list for a Ruger SR1911 for about two years now. Finally got a call that one hit me on the list. Pisser is that I have since moved from Iowa to Michigan.
    Called them back though and now working on the purchase and shipping to a local FFL.
    Woohhhhoooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

    AWESOME AND CONGRATS!!! It took me 3 times to finally get one. I found one at Gander Mountain, but we were going to Vegas. The next time I was on a waiting list for a few months and decided to buy my G35, but four days later Cabelas calls me about my SR1911 that came in. I had to tell them NO:(:(. Finally the third time was just 2 months ago when we were buying ZG an AR. I was looking around when she was buying her AR and I decided to ask if they had a SR1911 and they said "YES". That day we came home with an Stag model 3 and my SR1911. You will love the Ruger, it is freaking AWESOME!!!!

    I don't know myself really. Heard all good things about it though. To be honest, I've waited so long it'll probably sit in the box untouched for the next 5 years. I may pull it out and molest it in the basement a few times a year but that'll be about it.

    Why did you wait so long? Does IA have strict gun laws?

    Same here. Scheels in Waterloo Iowa. Talked to the manager yesterday and he said they just started getting 1 to 2 a month but not sure how long it'll last.
    Hit up your local store your on the list with and make sure you're still on the list. He said 50% of the folks on the list weren't up for the purchase right now.

    OK, I have wanted a 1911 for a long time, and Ruger coming out with their version made me desire one a bit more (if that is possible). So, are there any dislikes about it from those of you who have gotten one? I still don't have the cash, but I would like to know what the upsides and downsides are. Do they accept all of the various accessories available for other makers? Are they easily modified and where do they need to be made?

    Fathead likes his. My magazines for my Remington R1 1911 fit in his Ruger and vice versa. No complaints here.
