A little bittersweet, but all in all good
I'm a little disappointed right at the moment. I bought a 'NIB' Ruger SR1911 yesterday, from a local GS that I've been in before but have not done a lot of business with. He's about a half hour away, and not really on my route to anywhere, but I called and he had this and I've been looking for one so thought I'd go take a look.
While handling it I noticed it looked like it might be a little dirty, but frankly it didn't look like it had any more than factory dirt on it. The guy sold it to me as new and I'm not disappointed with the price, but .... this morning, doing the initial before I get to shoot it cleaning, I opened this thing up and it looks like it had spent a whole day at the range. It was not just a little dirty, it was truly fired and not cleaned. I'm not just a little disappointed; when I buy a 'NIB' I guess I expect it to be NIB.
On the other hand, this being my first experience with a true 1911, I was more than pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to take down, clean and reassemble. You hear stories, but truthfully this was not a difficult process at all.
So, pictures to follow, I know you all are chomping at the bit to see it, and a range report after Saturday morning.
As for the gun shop, what do you think?
