    They are pretty good guns, BUT. The Sig 1911 is light-years ahead of most 1911's, especially the Ruger.

    These are good guns with a lot of upgrades straight out of the box that you would pay several hundred dollars to have a competent smith install. Only things that I have done to mine are replaced the factory grips with thinner units from Wilson ( purely for aesthetics ) and installed a full length guide rod to keep the springs from twisting. Accuracy and shooting are above most without getting into a custom run of .45's or the higher dollar units from some of the other manufacturer's. Always liked the Rugers and the best thing they are made in the USA.! If you want further info, PM me.
