    After recently buying and selling another S/A Mil-Spec that I tried to like but couldn't,I now have my eyes on a Ruger SR 1911.It has all the enhanced features I want and is in my price range.
    Any of you guys have one yet? I was also looking at a S/A Range Officer, but I don't want target sights.I prefer combat style sights.Thoughts?

    My dealer had one SR1911, but said it will probably be months before he is able to get any more.
    They are selling like hotcakes.

    What didn't you like about the Mil-Spec? I have a Ruger and am curious what draws you to it? I know the obvious differences but am trying not to assume here. Maybe if your more specific about what you are looking for?
    I don't have a RO but many on here do.......

    The Ruger is a nice 1911. I'll be picking up mine soon.

    I want to get another 1911, but I really cant decide which one.
    I'm confused enough about it that I might not buy one at all.

    I didn't like the hammer,trigger,small beavertail and the crappy sights on the Mil-Spec.I like all the above on the Ruger,plus the overall looks of it.It's got all the features I want in a 1911.I would like to hear some feedback from someone that has one as far as reliability,accuracy,etc.

    I own a Ruger SR1911 and its been a fantastic shooter. I had 3 hiccups with some range mags but recently took it back to the range and had zero problems in 300 additional rounds (25 of them being PDX-1 and another 25 being some HST +P) bringing only Wilson Combat Elite & 47D, Kimpro and the 2 stock Ruger mags. Accuracy is very good and improved since my first range trip with an average of 2" at 15 yards. I would defiantly suggest it as a consideration for your next 1911.

    I would of put more rounds through it but ShipWreck has me looking at Berettas more often as my Yang to my 1911 Ying.

    Here is my original review_________________
