Great deal! Better stock up before the government limits new purchases to criminals only!

You might have to wait, but I got my SR1911 for $550 from Lawmens in NC a couple of months ago. I was on their wait list for 6 months before finally getting the call. Shipping was $25, plus $40 for my local FFL transfer. It's a beautiful gun and shoots really well. I am sure there are custom SR1911's that are even better crafted, but I am amazed at the quality of this gun at $700 or $800. I had my heart set on a Kimber before Ruger cannon-balled into the 1911 market.

That would be a great deal. I've never ordered from that site -- is it phone-order only on firearms, and do you have to be in law-enforcement to order?

Lawmens is a great store. We are lucky to have one in my town in FL. My DH drools everytime he goes there, which is once a week lately
Seems like a nice deal if it's really built as well as some are reporting...

Seems like a nice deal if it's really built as well as some are reporting... I have about 200 rounds through mine. It's the only 1911 I have ever shot so I don't have any frame of reference, but so far I am very impressed with its balance, solid feel and precision. The weight of the gun is a great match with the 45 acp round. The trigger is crisp with a very confident release. There's is less of an urge to compensate for the firing than with other hand guns I have tried. The XD series, and other similarly more modern designs have better ergonomics, but they lack the basic balance that seems so natural and intrinsic to the 1911's design. It's no wonder that this gun has remained popular for so long.
I look forward to comparing this to a kimber, SA, and S&W someday.
Oh, I have shot the Ruger 22/45 back to back with this. Two very different guns.
