It is one of the best 1911s in price range.

Thanks fellas. I was able to score one at 649 plus shipping... Quite pleased with the price.

Couple that with getting my KE date code 228 back from a friend this afternoon, and I do believe it's going to be a good week!

Regards,

G7

At $649 you did well. Cost on that pistol isn't much lower than that.

I got to hold a Ruger commander at a LGS. They wanted $719 plus tax so you got a nice deal. Got me thinking about my Christmas present.

I believe dealer cost is around 538-540. At least that's what my FFL told me, and I have no reason to doubt the man. Even at 649, folks selling them for that are still doing ok.

Well, after shooting it a bit, I was rather... underwhelmed.

Accuracy is acceptable, reliability excellent, but overall fit and finish are extraordinarily... ordinary. Prominent machining marks on the inside, looser slide to frame fit than I expected (by quite a bit), and a trigger that jangled around like mad with takeup that drove me nuts.

Do I think it's a bad gun? Heck no. It's reliable, acceptably accurate, and all US made. However, I do think it deserves around a 580-600 street price rather than the usual 700ish they go for.

Ruger has done a great job of marketing and keeping demand high through somewhat limited availability. Now that things are loosening up, I am seeing them for 625 BIN price w/ 20 dollar shipping on GB.

Maybe I just got a mediocre specimen - who knows? After all, my sample size is... 1.

That being said, I found a friend that loved it, so down the road it went. Broke even, pretty much.

On the flip side:

A good friend of mine has a Springfield RO in his shop right now that is far and away a better quality firearm, and he will do it for 730 otd. Nice frame to slide, great workmanship through and through, and side by side, it made my SR1911 just feel kinda... well... cheap, I hate to say... but that is my honest, unbiased assessment.

I do believe that particular RO will be my next 1911 purchase, especially at 730 otd.

Another consideration was grabbing one of the new Colt Series 70 re-issues (model O1970A1CS) as a 'clean slate' kind of thing and just customize it to my liking as I go along, although finding one seems to be the challenge with that particular model.

Anyone own one, or have any input on the 'new' Series 70 Colts?

Thanks!

It's easy to let the "razzle, dazzle and excitement" of a scarce specimen influence your expectations. I know you realize this but the Ruger was never meant to be a higher end gun with fine finishes. It was intended to be an average, middle-of-the-road, run-of-the-mill shooter, typical of the Ruger style.

I had the same underlying expectations of the Shield I bought and sold. Just wasn't really impressed when it finally came to fruition. Good ole' average plastic gun.
