    I have wanted a Ruger 1911 for a long time. When I looked in the dealers case a Springfield Armory Mil Spec 1911 sat right beside the Ruger with a price tag of about $10 less. Nothing against the Ruger, but I bought the Springfield. Taking it to the range tomorrow.
    Haven't owned a full sized 1911 since 1978. That was a Colt Gold Cup that I should have never sold. I have a Colt New Agent that kicks like a mule, so I don't take it to the range too often.

    I would pick SA 1911 over Ruger 1911 any day (though I would get range officer).

    Sorry to disagree... I have owned a bunch of springers and love my range officer and have had several loaded 1911's before but for the same price, the ruger has more features out of the box...

    That said you bought a great gun... Enjoy it... Then buy the ruger next

    I have a SA loaded and absolutely love it. I am honestly looking into buying another loaded or a RO just to have a second.

    While I really like how the 1911's shoot, and enjoy Springfields. The take-down and cleaning is a pain! :)

    Give me a Sig P220 any day. :)

    I have my FNP .45 for a great non-1911 shooter. Love everything about that gun, can be disassembled with one hand! 18 round magazines!!
    Shoots like a dream. I just had to have a 1911 again and that Springfield was calling my name! Now I have to wait to see, after Tuesday, if I stock up on high capacity mags for all my guns, or buy a new gun safe.
