Was at a gun show last weekend and a fellow came by my table(I sell some reloading supplies etc) and he gave me a tale of woe. Now some tales of woe are true and some aren't. This one really did ring true. He told me he needed to get some money in the house(me too). He had a Ruger 1911 he needed to sell. Now I am a sucker for 45 autos. Not keen on stainless but the price was ok so I bought it. Now it feels ok but it ain't my Wilson Combat or the Kimber. Going to try it out tomorrow on the range I have set up on the ranch. All my regular mags fit but wondering the approx. spring weight the Rugers have. Don't want to beat it up with my heavier loads. It's a full size gun. Wish it were a commander size...but I have a smaller Para Ord LDA compact 6 shooter for summer carry. Any comments or concerns relating to the Ruger 1911? I've never even looked at the Ruger 1911 much less handled one... till this one.
