Ronin is a great gun,, $799,, I’ll buy one soon,, I suggest buying a Springfield mil spec 45 , they shoot great, look great, and will last a lifetime and beyond. $599 to $699.. RIA is $499 ,, I trust Springfield much more than RIA. But,,,realistically… the Dan Wesson is the way to go. Ronin is another way to go… $1500 to $1600 for the DW ,, believe me you’ll be way happier buying a DW or a Ronin. 😎👍I'm trying to help a friend. He's shot a BHP for years. He now wants to jump into a .45 1911. At first he gave me a budget of $400-500. I suggested he at least double that. My first 1911 was a Baer, after which I went to NHC and Guncrafter so I don't have any experience with guns at his price point. Any thoughts on Springfield Ronin vs Dan Wesson vs Ruger, and any other suggestions. I thought he'd have a good base gun with the Ronin. Thanks for any help.
