Question SR1911 Pricing?




I've been looking around for an SR1911. I asked every dealer at the gun show this weekend if they had one. One guy responded with "got one over here". So he turns around hesitates, asks the shop owner where the SR1911 is. The shop owner turns to me and states, "that's the first and only gun I've sold today". I asked how much he got for it. He replied "$860".

I think that's a bit high. What are people paying for their SR1911s here on the site? I want to make sure I don't get bent-over on a deal.

The last 6 I've seen in shops all went for MSRP ($799). I paid MSRP for my 1st one, the second was $675, the last one was $650. The shops I know of who get them say they can sell them for $150 over MSRP due to demand.

Same dealer here in the northwest has had 1 come in every two months since last May.
I was the first one who bought one then, and every one she's sold has been for $599.99.

Now that's the pricing I'm hoping to find! There was one here locally that went for $629 but I missed out on it.

Around $680. I did get an extra magazine thrown into the deal. Considering supply/demand and that I hadnt given the dealer any previous business, and I got lucky with a round of phone calls and only ended up waiting for a few days for one ... Im not complaining.

From all the responses, I'm figuring I shouldn't settle for anything over $700. Thanks to everyone who has replied so far.

i'll be buying a ruger 1911 in a bit over a month (in part because i need to wait as i just bought a remington 1911 and can only buy 1 gun per 30 dayze in nj - wish i could have found a ruger 1911 2 months ago, would have gotten that before the rem). i feel reasonably confident i'll find one for under $700 before taxes, shipping a ffl fees - about $800 total, i figure.

rfd,

Jersey, right, yeah, ok.

I was born & raised in Fairfield NJ. I enlisted in the US Army in January 1976, retired from same in 1996. I now live in Texas. NO state income tax, low property tax.

I have a CCW. We can have high-cap mags. I can buy whatever guns I want, whenever I want; W/O the permission of Big Brudder.

Any questions then?

Jersey is green & pretty though.

Scheels in Springfield, IL had two last month for $650 before tax.

They went quick.

But if you can find one under $700 before tax that's would be fair.

Just bought mine for $669, would have paid alot more. I feel Ruger under priced the SR1911 by about $150-$200.

I believe dealer pricing is around $535, so if you are getting them in the $600 range, then you are doing good with the dealer still making some profit. While it's a nice gun, I just cant bring myself to pay high 700s/low 800s for it. I haven't seen any local in my area at all.

I bought mine the same day I got my pistol permit. I bought it at Hoffman's in Newington, CT for $712 out the door. They said they sell 20-30 of these a week lately. They also said the reason they are able to get so many of them is because they are the highest volume of Ruger firearms. I don't know if they meant in this region or the USA. If your able to buy out of state and your close enough to drive, you could own these hard to find SR1911 for a very fair price
