    I have handled Ruger 1911 today while I do not like this style weapon it was very impressive piece for $749. It seems Ruger has another winner on their hands.

    PS. Oh not providing integral rail does seem like gross oversight. That does kinda suck.

    I'm glad most 1911s don't have rails (not like the most people even need them), it means all my 1911s work in practically all my holsters.

    The only reason I'll ever consider buying a railed 1911 is for permanent nightstand duty.

    The Ruger 1911 just popped on my radar as a serious option.

    A lot of old time 1911 guys like me wouldn't buy one with a rail on it.

    It just ain't a 1911 with a rail.
    It's something else, I'm just not sure what.

    I even hate the holster chewing foreward serrations on the slides of most 1911's being made today.
    At least Ruger didn't make that mistake too.

    Rail on a 1911? Not for me.

    Or a FL guide rod, or ambi-safeties the size of ping-pong paddles.

    I can do without knife edges and saw teeth on my 1911. :neener: It is possible, however, they might make one in the future, if there is enough demand.

    Agreed.

    I agree 100% but I took it off hold after 24 hours just was not able to nix S&W 457s to get it. It is well worth the $749 asking price and made here at home by American workers which is big + imo. The eight LGS got in sold out almost immediately.
