My preference would be the Ruger.

I would go w/ the Ruger just because of the internal extractor... Im pretty sure the STI Spartan could make it into your price range as well, and that is nicer than any of them

"Better" is kind of a subjective thing. You mean "which would you choose and why"?

I'd probably choose the Ruger out of those two...and immediately change out the black controls. :ack: I'm not a fan of Sig 1911s. Just personal preference. In that pricerange...I'd choose neither to be honest. Just my opinion. YMMV.

Sig XO 1911 or Ruger SR1911 ?

Hard to say. I'm not a huge fan of the Sig's series 80 system, nor do I like the appearance of the slide. However, the Sig 1911 does come with front strap checkering and is the more proven platform.

That said, its not really an apples to apples comparison, because the Sig costs nearly $200 more. Its difficult for the Ruger to give up $200 and still be the better overall option. :dunno:

286 guns we have and not a single Sig. Not that they haven't been bought just gotten rid of. One of the few pistols that just didn't run right.. Never own another. My buddy will try almost any gun and has great luck but not with them. Calls them junk. I'm not that harsh just wouldn't buy one.

No fan of Sig USA either. I know there isn't much data on the Ruger yet as they are so new to the market, but that's where I would go. off color controls and all.

Better?

Not sure, but:

I dislike the slide profile and external extractor on the Sig, and I dislike the blued parts on the Ruger, but those are easier to correct, so the Ruger would be my choice.

The Rugers are very hard to come by.

Brian, yes you do; and do a comparo with the SR1911.

It's my perception that either of those two is the ideal entry level 1911.

True, and they don't hold up well to "hot" ammo either.

The Sig XO is the best value in 1911's under 800 bucks. Forged frame and slide, tool steel hammer and sear, Novak sight cuts and it has one of the best finishes available. Or you could get the Ruger with a cast frame and MIM ignition parts.

Sig 1911's have a lot going for them.

I have an extensive collection of 1911's. Included are two Sig 1911's that I shoot every month. Many people badmouth the external extractor because they can't handle a punch and hammer to remove it. I have never had a problem with mine but as I have said many times......I know how to take care of my 1911's.

They do, other than the styling, in my opinion.

The Sig Tac Ops is a good looking gun to me for some reason, and I'm not even a railed 1911 fan, but I'm not a Sig fan in general. The one's I've shot were good shooters, but I just didn't care for the feel or the trigger. I think Sig makes a good gun, and used to make an even better one, but I'll probably never own one. Haven't got to fondle the new Ruger 1911, but I'm a huge Ruger revolver fan and like their .22 autos as well. The other Ruger centerfire auto's just don't do much for me though. :dunno:

They seem to miss the mark on looks every time. The original Sig 1911's have the ugly sig looking slide with no front cocking serrations. The new traditional slide models have a normal 1911 slide but they added front cocking serrations.

I wish I knew who to slap for that decision.

That could be said for a LOT of the stuff coming out of Exeter in recent years.
