    Looking at both these pistols. Will probably purchase one tomorrow. I like the SR for the fact its a series 70, has a Ti firing pin, and the fact all of my Rugers have been fantastic weapons.
    Now, I really like the looks and feel of the R1 stainless. Much classier, classic looking gun I personally feel. I can also get it quite a bit cheaper.
    What are your guys take on both these pistols? Any known issues with either?

    I was under the impression only the carry model of the Ruger had ant titanium in it. FWIW you can't go wrong with either, but In love my R1 Enhanced.

    Ended up with the R1 stainless. Left me with a little extra coin in my pocket for upgrades, and I just love the look and feel. Hopefully I'll get to shoot it today.
