    After tooo much research on every common pistol, I've settled on a SA 1911.

    I haven't shot the SR, but I own a Stainless loaded and I love it. One of my favorite pistols to shoot. The quality is great and Springfield customer service is fantastic. If you don't want to wait then get the Springfield, you won't be sorry

    My opinion is that you cannot go wrong no matter what you choose.

    I love my SR1911 and my SA Loaded. If i had to choose one though i would probably say my SR just because it seems a tiny bit more polished which is strange since it is Rugers first 1911, but just my opinion.

    I absolutely love my sr1911, looks great, feels great and shoots just as accurately as any other 1911 I've handled. Though the aluminum trigger annoys me a bit but that's going to be changed. I doubt you'll be disappointed either way though.

    I'd go with the Springfield just based on the fact that given the choice, I prefer forged over cast.

    I agree whole heartedly, but don't forget that Ruger's casting has been doing them for Caspian for years and are one of THE go to frames for custom builds. If done properly casting isn't terrible and Ruger seems to have it pretty well down.

    I don't have any experience with SA, but I'd buy another SR1911 if I was looking for a gun in that price range. The one I bought has been a great shooter for us and has given us no trouble.

    PS. Ruger's casting is the best in the industry.

    I looked at a loaded yesterday priced at $749 is that a reasonable price on them?

    My TRP was quite a bit more than that, and aside from the night sights and the stainless frame a loaded pretty much has everything my TRP does. After swapping out the main, firing pin and recoil springs for standard weights I couldn't be happier than with my SA.

    TRP is a total different gun then a loaded! Loaded for 749 isn't bad at all, but I'd try to find a RO instead if it were me

    Parts is one thing, the fitting (slide/frame) on my TRP is SO much nicer than the last Loaded I owned, it's really night and day. I haven't held a SR1911, but I do know that RO's are very nice for their price point. Better than a Loaded IMO.

    Well its been 4 weeks waiting on an SR1911. I did look at a loaded the other day guess I'll take a look at the RO next. Would like to stay at $1000 or less if I can.
