I have never seen this Ruger but maybe I could become a fan considering the work and price.
A $2500, $3500, $4500 or a $6500 1911 is like a good trigger or a cue stick which hits softer than others. You won't know it until you experience it.

I own a Glock...it is does not compare to a well buit 1911. Not even close.
The modern production 1911 - high visibility sights, beavertail grip safety, aluminum trigger, good trigger pull, enhanced slide/ frame fit, accurized barrel/bushing fit. If itís not a Kimber, itís a copy.
