The Ruger is a solid 1911 and a great value.Ruger by far. Way more gun for the money.
And let me add that my GI has been back to SACS for some upgrades (sights, ejection port, trigger, msh) and I still like the Ruger better.
Well thats open to some debate, the Ruger's internals are largely manufactured via MIM, I don't know much about the so-called SA milspec pistols, except that they are not milspec.I believe he meant inexpensive.
Both of those 1911s are good quality and inexpensive.
Yeah, but it lacks lowered and flared ejection port or a polished feed ramp. While it may feed JHP ammo well enough, its designed to shoot ball ammo.My SA GI is reliable and plenty accurate enough for SD, I carry it often without hesitation.
