Local GS called me on Thursday to ask if I wanted one of the Ruger SR1911s he had gotten in that morning. I picked it up today... nice! Everything's fit nice and snug and the finish is impeccable. When I got it home, I field stripped the SR1911 and my SS TRP side-by-side to have a look and compare the two. The SR1911 was about half the cost of the TRP ($680 vs. $1350) and I'm quite impressed with how it held up in a visual inspection/comparison! I'll try to get good close-up photos to share of the areas where the TRP outshines the the SR1911 and where the Ruger kicks the TRP's butt. Heading to the range tomorrow to see how she shoots next to the TRP. That is, of course, what really matters. For the time being, I'm very hopeful.
