Bought this on a Sunday and it was in my hands on Thursday morning, The gun was in perfect shape. My first transaction with Bud's was flawless I am not a 1911 guru, but have owned my own vintage combat 1911 for 25 years, and have a deep personal affection for it. I only felt the need to buy a new one because I now carry a 5" 1911 and did not want to holster-wear my baby. I read as much as I could on basic 1911s and the Ruger kept coming up as solid, reliable and a good shooter. Then I saw Bud's (and others) had this gun on sale for bargain prices. I jumped in with both feet. On Friday, my son and I went to the range to break it in. We shot 150 rds of federal aluminum 230 ball, 150 rds of Sig Sauer 230 ball, 100 rds of Winchester white box 230 jhp, 100 rds and 50 rds of Hornady xtp 185 jhp. There was one FTF on mag 2, round 2. But further inspection revealed the round was actually out-of-spec, and should not be counted as a 'gun' failure (nevertheless, there it is). Other than that ... not a single hiccup. Nada. The XTP was fired dead last, when the gun was getting dirty. With the last mag, I was able to put all 7 rds in one ragged hole at 25 feet, I'd say a 1.5" group. For me, this is almost supernatural, I felt like the gun was doing it by itself. (The other ammo was maybe not so tight, but still groups were staying at a couple inches with an occasional flier, so (for me) good). I have just purchased several boxes of XTP (pricey stuff) and several boxes of Golden Saber (not cheap, but my current favorite) to see if I was just learning the gun and getting better, and/or if this gun just loves Hornady XTP. Either way, I love this SR1911. If it shoots the XTP that well, that is what I will carry.

A solid, sexy, well built 1911. The Ruger SR1911 45ACP is not as heavy as it appears, and has a nice balance in the shooter's hands. The clear sights are easily visible from a standby to ready-to-fire stance for quick target acquisition, and it produces a nice 3" grouping at 20 yards for me. The recoil is almost the same as many 9mm pistols because of the weight and the 5" barrel length both help absorb the discharge. I have been a Ruger fan since I first shot my father's Single Ten as a little guy over 30 years ago, and this beauty doesn't disappoint in the slightest. Bud's went the extra mile helping get this baby in my hands after it showed out of stock after I paid for it, and even called me back for confirmation that it would be delivered and on time! I don't see customer service like this a lot these days I can honestly say, and I was pleasantly amazed by the professionalism of Bud's staff. Hope to see you at the range friends enjoying our 2nd Amendment my friends.

As others have mentioned, the transaction with Bud's was absolutely amazing. The firearm shipped quickly and I got e-mails every step of the way. This is my 2nd purchase from Bud's and I see many more in my future. Now, to the Ruger SR1911. It arrived bone dry, which is odd for a new firearm, but I was pleasant as I didn't have to do a super cleaning to get the shipping grease off before I applied my own lube. The slide was a bit stiff(I'm thinking Ruger uses an 18lb recoil spring instead of the standard 16lb)but it lightened after a good lube job and manually racking it about 50 times. Took it to the range and had zero FTF or FTE. The only problem I had was a failure to go into battery when I was loading some of my reloads-A 200gr lead SWC that no 1911 I have ever owned will load properly at first. The accuracy is awesome. Winchester WB 230gr ball target loads were slightly low left and my 200gr reloads were high right. I was going to adjust the windage, but I fired 8 of my carry rounds(230gr Federal Hydra-Shoks LE) and they were dead on, so I left the sights alone. All said and done, I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would recommend this firearm to anyone looking for a good 1911.

Purchased on 4/7, arrived at FFL on 4/8, shot it on 4/9. Fed a mixture of Federal Premium Personal Defense Low Recoil, Winchester JHP, and PMC Bronze and didn't have a single issue in well over 100 rounds. Ruger has made a quality gun that shoots smoothly, accurately, and with little noticeable recoil. This gun is a ton of fun to fire. It has become my new carry handgun as well.

This was my 2th purchase with Buds and it was a great buying experience as always. The gun shoots looks and shoots great. Over 600 rounds down range so far very accurate and not a single jam. delivery was fast and economical 5 stars for Ruger and % stars for Buds, if you are looking for a budget friendly but reliable 1911, then this gun is for you.

This was my first 1911, so I am really comparing it to all of the polymer guns I have shot. Overall, it has a great feel. I ran about 100 rounds through it without any issues. Looks great too! It will take me a bit to get used to the grip safety, but I don't see that being a problem in the long run. Shot better with this than I do my 9mm. Very happy with the firearm and with Buds!
