    I was browsing the local classifieds last night and came across a NIB Ruger SR1911. I had been thinking about ordering one for a while but didn't want to wait the 4-6 months that some people are reporting it takes to get it(I'm very impatient). I was surprised to see that the guy who was selling it wasn't asking an outrageous amount for it like I have seen other places. I ended up paying $700 for it, which I think is a fair price considering that Ruger lists them for $800 now. Overall I am very impressed with this gun. The slide to frame fit is tight(tighter than my Kimber), the trigger is smooth with a nice crisp break, and the finish looks great. I won't get a chance to shoot it until probably Sunday or Monday, but when I do I'll post a range report.

    Here's a quick pic I took with my iPhone, I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow.

    Honestly - I just checked my vendors and the price hasn't gone up on the SR1911 that I can see (of course no one has any but what else is new)

    Interesting, Ruger's website has the MSRP listed at $799 now. I also talked to a couple local gun shops and they told me the price just went up after the first of the year. Either way I still think I got a good deal because even at the $650 that they were listed at after taxes it would have been just over $700 and I would have had to wait 4-6 months to get it.

    and if it doesn't Rugers CS is fantastic, they paid UPS to pu from my house and back, fixed my 10/22 that the scope tapped and die were misalign so bad the windage could not correct it and did this in 18 days. I have nothing but praise for Ruger. BTW nice pistol

    Congrats on a nice looking Ruger,I have had an order in at three distributors since April 14, 2011 and my name hasn't come up yet. It is ordered through a small shop and I'm sure he is down the food chain a ways but he does give me great deals.
