Believe it or not, my luck with Ruger CS was also bad. About 25 years ago I ordered a Ruger 10/22 Deluxe sight unseen from the company warehouse supplying the hardware store where I worked. It arrived with nasty dents and dings on both the stock and receiver, and with fine sawdust stuck to the front sight which told me it got dropped or fell over while still at the factory. I could not return it as it was against warehouse policy to take firearms back, so I had to call Ruger to see if they would refinish the rifle under warranty. They refused, and I was stuck selling it to a local gunshop for around $50 just to get rid of it.

My luck with guns needing repair or warranty service ain't too good.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
