They're a pain to find, your lucky to find one. I heard that Ruger decided not to increase production on them despite being so popular.

If you don't mind how much did you pay? I hope you didn't pay over MSRP due to how hard they are to find.

Yea they are a pain to find. I heard Ruger is only making like 35 a day or something like that. The shop I got it from said that they have only received 2 in since the release of the SR1911. I paid 650 for it, so not to bad, could not wait any longer to get one.

Pleased to see that they didn't put the "bilboard warnings" all over the pistol - like they have done in other models!

As much as I love Ruger, I really hate how they lawyer their guns to death. My MKIII came engraved with many warnings on top of a mag disconect and a ugly loaded chamber indicator. I don't know why I like Ruger, their guns have no "soul," but they just work.

They just have the billboard in front of the trigger guard about reading instruction manual before shooting. But it is hidden unlike their other semi's.
