    Nice but not 1000.00 nice. Still waiting on the 9mm price to come down.

    $1K for a 10 mm isn't unusual, from what I've seen.

    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I'd like to see it in person, but honestly I'm inclined to pass for the RIA offering.

    My Ruger SR1911 CMD is a nice gun, but it's not $800-$1000 nice like I've seen SR1911 offerings going for now. In my mind it's a $650 gun.

    Now, a street price under $800, and I might consider it.

    2 lbs 9.4 ounces empty ! Likely 3 lbs loaded.

    I paid 669 for my SR1911 in .45 and about the same for my RIA 10mm. Accuracy, fit and finish, reliability and trigger are about the same. Is this 300 plus better?

    I'm sure it's nice, but for another $200 you can have a DW Razorback.

    Remington has a double stack version of the R1 in 9 and 45. I'm mildly interested.

    Probably. But, it may be easier to find someone who carries Ruger over Dan Wesson. At least it is around here.

    Y'all do understand the difference between MSRP and street price, right? The .45 version has an MSRP of $960-ish. The 10mm will probably be around 7-800 street

    Let's not try to confuse folks with facts.

    Of course where I live, MSRP IS street price...

    If I could buy it for $750 OTD, I would definitely take a look at one, although the RIA is probably fine, for a lot less.

    Cant argue with a DW RZ10. I cant shoot mine very well (any 1911 for that matter) but it is a load of fun at the range.

    I'd GLADLY pay that too. Main reason, there is no ing billboard and instruction manual engraved in the slide.

    IDK, the slide on this Ruger is relatively clean by today's standards...

    The billboard is on the port side.

    I think it has a good weight to recoil ratio.

    The 9mm Ruger 1911 still sells slightly below MSRP after a yr or more.

    I would be excited, but I already have a Kimber in 10mm. Make me one in 9x23 Winchester and take my money.... PLEASE!

    Can't say I agree with that. Now is probably the time to be asking "What don't they already have?"

    Need to do that as a rail gun. Guys are going to be buying 10mm 1911's to hunt pigs - often at night. This would be the place for Surefires and Streamlights with green LEDs.

    If it was in the $700s, I'd probably own my first Ruger 1911.

    High 8s to mid 9s...........no thanks.

    I don't know why big manufacturers like Ruger and Smith and others are not jumping on the PCC bandwagon. You either build it yourself or buy from a second tier vendor or pay a boatload for a sig, CZ or lesser known places like Quarter Circle or PSA. They are the hottest thing in competitions right now and 85% of the design is done.

    Actually it doesn't...

    But back to the original topic. Bad time to be introducing new guns. Sales are in the toilet for most brands and folks are getting rid of inventory. I just saw Remington R1s (basic military model) for $399 after rebate...

    For some gun types, yes. The AR market for cheap ARs has waned, but the market for higher dollar ARs has remained relatively unchanged. Those who bought pricier stuff still buy it.

    All in all I don't think the gun sales market has suffered all that much by the long term standard. Basing the whole market on AR and Glock sales spurts isn't accurate.

    I'm willing to wager the 1911-ish gun market hasn't fallen all that much in the last 10 years. They're never chopping block fodder for the grabbers so no tizzy of sales to fluctuate drastically. Shotguns are the same.
