I bought mine in January and paid $740. I love it. Wish I had paid less but after waiting for 8 months, I couldn't pass it up.

Thumbs down Outrageous Texas Pricing

Well...I was at the gun show today in Mesquite, TX. One dealer had a SR1911. He was asking $899.

I offered him $650. He laughed. It was still for sale when I left the show. Someone that has to have one will probably pay that price for it. Not me. Beautiful gun though...

It's a nice gun, but for $899 he will be hauling that one back home with him.

The funny thing is, is that I struck up a conversation with one of his employees. While making sure his boss wasn't in earshot he told me "wait 4 months, we'll be selling them at $675".

Oh...and...I did a quick ninja edit. I offered him $650 not $750. Forum member "musc" was quick on the quote.

supply and demand - and vice versa.

my guess is that by next year they'll pretty much be fair traded at well under $700 street price. then i'll buy.

I spoke to one dealer who didnt have any but told me they would sell them for $630 ... even if he managed to get one now. The dealer I most often patronize said about $650. I dont know if they would sell at that price now, I know he would have for me. Neither had seen any for months. So I agree, when supply is available they should be gettable at around $650 or a little below. But this was what was being stated in most of the reviews I saw when they first came out.

When I decided on the Ruger, I called probably 6 or 7 dealers over a couple of days. Of those, one had two coming the following week. The other had one coming (which I ended up with). Neither had a wait list but both expected them gone same or next day. This was 3 weeks ago. From this and other recent posts, it seems like supply is atleast starting to catch up. I paid a little under $740 out the door and was ok with that considering I waited only 4 or 5 days from decision to buy to gun in hand. And I ended up with an extra 7 round mag in the deal.

when jonesing for a first 1911, hands down my choice was the ruger. after 4 days of scouting i couldn't find one anywhere at any price so i bought a $450 armscor just to get shooting, and it did satisfy. then the remington 1911 caught my eye and i ditched the armscor for an instant remington buy ($620). i don't regret for a second getting the rem, it has it's own look and feel and for me it's a definite keeper. but i also want a ruger for it's series 70 operation and tactical look, and will buy the first one offered at $650, which is a fair enuf price tag. i can wait, i'm happily 1911 flush right now.

My other gun store has it on order also but he is smart n told me the price will be $650 but has not got any in. He call me last month and said come on in. He showed me a Sig 1911 45 -list $1200 its the Sig sauer scorpion - I spent my money that i was saving for the Ruger. I paid $950 n he gave me a box of bullets n tarage. If any one knows were i can get a ruger 1911 -please tell me.

Thumbs up

Wow...$850 is a bit steep. But...as long as you are happy, that's all that matters!

$750 for mine....+ shipping + FFL transfer with local dealer = $789.00.
A little more than I had planned, but I'm satisfied.

As long as the SR1911 is in short supply, they will command premium prices. If you want one now, and if you have as much problem finding one as I did, you will probably pay in excess of $700. As long as the price is south of $800, you are still getting good value. That's my opinion.

I read that Ruger is not taking any more orders, for any units, until May. They can't produce enough firearms to meet their sales orders. That means high prices!

Sad to say, the vulture / profitteer asking $999.99 just may get it!

Got mine for 650.00 out the door. The place has since been selling them for 750.00 plus tax, due to the demand.

I paid $799+tax for mine which is high but again, they are hard to find. I plan on keeping this gun for life so to me I look at it as an investment.
