Only time and use will tell. Most new things work fine.

Bought mine back in 2016, and ever had a hitch of trouble with my SR1911 CMD.

I feel the Ruger LW commander is good out of the box. I have one in 9mm and it is a joy to shoot. It has had 2 boxes of shells put thru it. My best has been 1/2 inch and worst about 1 1/2 inch. It makes for an excellent carry gun. In my opinion, it needs no upgrades except,if you want, maybe night sights.
These are some of the pictures of my Ruger 1911 Commander 9mm(with different grips).

I am waiting for a lightweight Officers .45 - to go with my full size SR1911 and stainless Officers 45. Impatiently waiting.

a side note - I am purposely avoiding cleaning my full size SR to see how long I can run it before it chokes - a drop or two of oil on the rails and barrel hood and bushing and go.
I lost count somewhere around 1200+/- rounds - that was several range trips back.

I'm still waiting for a sign its getting too dirty.

Picked up a NIB Night Watchman at very good price just this week. For the price I had to try one out. I ran 100 rds of ball and another 100 rds of different HPs through it yesterday and it was flawless. Gold Dots, Hydra shocks and the Golden Sabers all fed well. Trigger out of the box was at 4 lbs. The finish is nice. It came very dry though so I tore it down, cleaned and lubricated. before heading to the range. So far so good. I may just have myself a new carry piece...
