    There are several on Gunbroker in Government and Commander sizes. Most under $800.

    If it is anything like the regular Ruger 1911's, it should be a reliable firearm.

    Definitely on my want list............

    I'm certainly no expert in 1911's, but it seems to me a gun named the "Night Watchman" should come with an integral rail for a light. While I don't like the blocky look of most 1911's with rails, Para seems to get it right with their "tactical" models. Doesn't really interfere with the lines of the gun. Ruger is doing something similar on their SR45, wonder why they don't on their 1911's, especially this one?

    I have a Night Watchman in both sizes. They both operate perfectly. These, as entry level guns, are very well made and would be a bargain even if the price was higher.

    Maybe things will calm down, but the high level of interest of the Night Watchman has kept the price substantially higher than the brushed stainless models. Both of mine were $800 each.

    I know everyone has different tastes, but I applaud Ruger for not installing an accessory rail.

    And speaking of tastes, I didn't care much for the Night Watchman grips...So I had to do my own thing.:cool:
