    Good price. They are still gouging on auction sites due to availability.

    It's not like I don't own another 1991 45 ACP that I can compare it to. Each has it's own fine points. But since I don't plan on buying another Kimber Custom Shop Super Carry Pro anytime soon ($$$$), the Ruger will do.

    Not knocking the rugers, I am sure they are good guns, but for those of you who are having a hard time finding them I would take a close look at the S&W E-Series. I own 21 1911s and the new e series is one of the finest of them all and will out shoot most. I honestly never thought I would be saying that about a smith 1911 but they have stepped up their game.

    What is the price on the Smith E series compared to the Ruger? The only E series I have ever seen topped a grand.

    Still happy with the one you hooked me up with Helix but some will still cry this is too much money. I paid around what you're saying now but the MSRP is 799 and some places are getting it all day long if they had them in stock.

    People this is a great price for this gun. I made the call and actually had to send them a money order and I had my gun at my FFL in 4 days.

    The e-series TA with the rail is a grand but the basic e-series is under 800. Its alot more gun in my opinion.

    Installed a six inch barrel in my latest 1911. Too bad Ruger doesn't make a long slide version of the SR1911.

    My LGS has had them in stock for some time. They have the commander style also. I was going to pick one up but bought a shotgun instead. I don't know how well they shoot but my store also has the Remington is stock and the slide seems better on the Remington. THe Ruger is a better looking gun but that Remington is smooth.

    The Rock Islands are a diamond in the rough. I bought one of the first here, when they were $300 and wouldn't part with it. I believe it has a 4 digit S/N. The last 4 digits are not in line with the first half, of the number and not stamped as deep. It has a trigger that feels as good as my Colt Gold Cup.

    Double D is right, get what you really want and not what someone else says is good.

    I picked up the Ruger Commander last week. The LGS got 4 in and that was the last one. Got it for $649. I took it to the range 2 times already and love it.

    My son picked up the Remington for $630. He had a few ejection issues at the range. He never cleaned it before shooting it.
