Both good guns. Ruger will feed anything.
Both handguns are good to go. It will come down to personal preference for you, rather than a good vs. bad performance.
The issue you may find with the 1911 is aftermarket mags. Buy decent ones and you'll have no problems. Buy El Cheapo knock-offs and you will be introducing a weak link and possible failure point. Not as much of an issue with the Ruger because magazine supply is limited to not much more than Ruger.
Now 1911s in general have gotten a bad rap but this is mainly due to super tight tack-driver 1911s people want for target shooting type results. Plain jane milspec 1911s like the RIA work much better though not as accurate.
Same with the Ruger Ps not generally uber-accurate but stone-cold reliable.
I got the Ruger P97 !
Ok guys , I got a like new Stainless Steel Ruger P97. I figured that I could always get a RIA but the P97's are no longer made so I better jump on the P97. It is like new almost mint ! Like new in the box with all papers and a leather holster by Ruger and a full box of Federal Defense rounds for $350 and no tax !
Here she is !

Looks go to 1911 though
