In my 50 years + of shooting many different 1911's, even the vintage WWII Colts, I have never owned a finer 1911.
Not only is it a work of art, and I commend the Ruger gunsmiths for the quality it their trade, but it performs better than any 1911 I have shot right out of the box. I took this 1911 and cleaned it, with no other adjustments right to the range. It ate up every kind of ammo I had with me, including my lead ball reloads, and not one misfire or jamb. It grouped like it had been broke it, and accurized.
With every 1911 I have had before, I have had a problem with them feeding the tapered bullets of the hollow point defense loads. They want to feed only round ball, especially the Colts. I have owned a Colt that would feed anything, but round ball ammo.
I have to polish the feeding ramp to get them to feed all kinds of ammo. With this Ruger, I don't have to do anything to it.
Why pay thousands of dollars for name brand 1911's, when you can get the best in this Ruger for $700.00?
This is another example Ruger continues to put out a quality made firearm at a reasonable price.
