    Default Ruger SR1911

    Does anybody out there have a Ruger SR1911 or have heard anything good/bad about it?

    They are in very short supply as demand has grossly exceeded Ruger's ability to produce them. Production has been ramped up, but that won't affect availability for several months.

    I don't personally own one. That said, absolutely everything I've read has been praise for the gun. From what I can tell, it's an $800+ gun being sold for $650. Look at the Springfield or Remington you can get for that price and compare it to the Ruger (we'll not go into the Taurus and derail the thread). If I saw one at a shop I'd buy it on the spot.

    I have seen reviews on youtube and they all seem pretty positive. Im looking to get my first 1911 and it is a pretty nice looking firearm. A gun store around here is selling it for $629. Plus i am selling them my Ruger LCP with CT laser and 3 holsters for $300. So I can get the SR1911 for $329...but i am also looking at their Kimber's and Springfield's as well.

    I have the SR1911 and absolutely love it. I paid just a little over 6 for mine right after they came out last year. I have over 1000 rounds through it with not a problem. Its my every day carry gun. If you can find one in stock IMO buy it.

    As stated above, reviews that i have heard have all been good. I have yet to see one on the shelf. When i do, it will go on my card immediately. I have been wanting a 1911 for some time now, and at that price with good reviews and good looks, it might as well be that one.

    It's funny right after i read these posts i emailed the gun shop and asked if they had any in stock. He replied yes and no. They had one in stock just as a display piece. They have over 50 people waiting on backorder for them. And this is a pretty small shop. Looks like I wont be getting a Ruger this weekend.

    Last i heard there was one in stock at the Army Navy Store in Allentown, PA.
    But i believe they were asking over $700 for it.

    While you wouldn't be settling in quality, you would be settling in terms of quality:cost ratio. But if you don't want to wait the several months it may take to find an SR1911, the Springfields and Kimbers are excellent guns as well.
