I think it is a good 1911, as does this reviewer, who I really respect:
Ruger SR1911 Review, Crucible Arms - YouTube
I hope you will come back tomorrow and give a report on what you thought of it.
I'm new to guns and have purchased a Glock 17 Gen4 and a Ruger LC380.
Tonight I grabbed my first non plastic gun, and am blown away. I purchased a Ruger 1911acp.
Does anyone know if this is a good 1911? I try it tomorrow. (My first time shooting a 45) Any tips greatly appreciated
Congrats. The RUger 1911 is a very nice 1911 for the price. At that price range, it would probably be the one I would choose as well.
Nice buy! I am just getting into handguns as well and came across a new S&W 1911 .45 TAC last night at the local dealer. He is holding it for me through today so I am planning on buying it tonight. Sorry to piggy back on your post but thought it would be cleaner/ quicker to post here.
Thanks in advance to all responses!
I will say that it feels great in the hand and everyone loves it. I showed this gun to at least 20 people today and everyone agreed that its a beauty. I also let a few experienced people shoot it and they gave the nod of approval. Apparently the trigger is very nice (compared to another 1911 we had at the range)
This guns gets a lot of attention. I am lucky to have it. It was on the shelf for almost an hour and when I found it the person next to me asked " are you going to buy it?" (He was next in line)... 30 seconds later, it was mine. A very easy decision to make once you see this gun.
Hope this helps. I"m just a newb, but I think I am off to a good start.
Congrats on your purchase!
I handled one of those a couple of days ago, and felt a familiar urge (wanting to buy a 1911-style pistol -- again) welling up inside me.
I went home, took two aspirin, and laid down until the feeling passed.

I too have one. I shot one that a friend of mine had before I bought mine.
I put about 70 rds. or so through it. Not a hic-cup of any kind. He ran three different brands of ammo thru it while we shot it. It ate um all.
I like it for it's classic 1911 appearance and feel.
