No I seen the Spiegel grips..pretty cool..

I think the set I got from 'Cool Gun Stuff' are cocabola. I got those on my Springfield Armory Milspec(replace factory gray)...I have full checkered walnut on my Sistema Colt(replaced GI brown plastic)...The Rem I got Monday came with decent double diamonds on it..not as nice as the Spiegels will be I bet...but good enough for a truck-gun..

Ehh...never liked my 1911pistols with medallions in the grips...Looks to me like Ruger's got medallions stuck in that otherwise pretty wood.

imagine that sentence will keep Dan's attention to the grips on a ruger 1911 for a bit more

I think the little 'message' engraved in the front grip-strap of the Ruger will give Dan plenty of reading material..he won't worry about the grips..

Just joking...I expect that Ruger just put that on the front strap so they won't be expected to checker the grip strap.

So are you going to order yourself a Ruger Dan..or wait to see what the production guns have for buggaboos first?

I'm sort of glad I waited a year to buy a Remington...some of the early made ones seem to have a few cosmetic and rough work issues. Looking at online pics of older Remington R1 pistols several things have been changed slightly..including better workmanship on the exterior. My luck with new 1911 pistols has been bad enough that I thought I'd better give Remington some time to get the hang of making handguns..especially when they hadn't pumped out a handgun besides bolt actions since the 1920's or 30's.

Ruger may not have any such issues since they've been making handguns for decades.

and running the SR 1911 thru their range to work out the bugs, going to Sports World today and see if they have one in stock.

They didn't have one at H&H on Monday..I asked. The sales-guy said they just introduced them 'last week'..

I asked how much he thought they would sell for when they got to the stores..he stated "around $700..based on Ruger's suggested retail price"..

I'll get one from Mark. But his supplier has to have them first.
As far as the first run and production problems, I really don't expect any.
If I have any, Ruger will sure hear about it.
