This is nothing more than a shameless praise to the new Ruger CMD I recently acquired. I have owned four different 1911 platforms ranging from a Springfield A1 GI, Rock Island compact, Taurus PT and down to a very pricey Springfield Micro Compact loaded model. This gun to me has a higher quality build upon inspection then any of them. I could not ask for more for the price. 100% accurate and very impressive tolerance specs. Great trigger right out of the box and FINALLY a unitized plunger tube right out of the box (staked has forever made me nervous) And not at all picky about the ammo. I ran 230 FMJ's and a variety of HP's down the pipe with zero and I mean zero failures. I am looking forward to seeing how much this gun can really take but only time and rounds down range will really tell. I could go on and on about how impressed I am with this gun (and I am very picky) I hope everyone who owns one has the same positive impressions that I had. I honestly have not seen many of these around and now consider myself lucky to have come across one. Long and short, I love this gun!
