stopped by my lgs to pick up a pair of bx25 mags for the ruger 1022 takedown and they got a ruger sr1911 for 799$ dunno if that s a good price or not im not up on em. interesting gun. has the same rattle as my colt series 70 (meaning it isnt going to get clogged and stop running with a little dirt) chamber does not appear to be throated like a colt. has a very nice flat msh with very fine lpi on the checkering so it shouldnt cheese grate your palm. only real gripe of course is the colour. silver, Bleh. if i was in the market for a low end 1911 i would consider it. it would need to have the beavertail removed, extended mag release replaced and the extended safety swapped out along with the chamber throated doing that brings it past the price point of a colt however if you dont mind those things i was pretty impressed with it overall.
