FWIW, I have had a Ruger 1911 since they were introduced and have had zero issues. It is very accurate and contrary to an opinion above is not rough around the edges. I also have a Springfield Armory 1911 that was built for me by Les Baer when he ran their custom shop and the Ruger is just as accurate. The Ruger is my goto 1911.
I have two friends that bought Ruger 1911s, they they are very satisfied with them. I have handled them, but not shot them. They didn't look all too rough around the edges to me. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have a Kimber 1911, Tactical Custon II, and I love it. I'm just not fond of stainless guns. Just me. Good Luck. Charlie
