excellent deal. I had decided to buy a new 1911 in 2011, and for historical symbolic reason wanted it to be Made in USA where the 1911 started, so that narrowed field. I could not wait, bought first one to arrive at about 10 stores I had been visiting or phoning after the Ruger announcement in April. It released on 1 May, I paid $650 + tax on 3 May. Not great but not bad compared to MSRP of $799, I did not feel gouged. Knew might do better if waited, but did not want to wait for "maybe". I love mine so far, no regrets, think it is worth what I paid for 100% USA compared to offshore stuff in same bracket. If you want a nice 1911 for the price bracket it is in, that is made here by Americans, then I say go for it.
out the door as in after tax? thats a killer deal, get it! i have a ruger sr1911, i paid around $720 total after tax...paid extra to be the first on the block with it and i suppose it made me feel a little better that they gave me 2 range passes, but anyways the ruger sr1911 is definitely comparable to other brand 1911's in the $1000-$1200 range...build quality, and the features alot of us 1911 guys want. I believe they pass on the savings to us because other branded 1911 stuff (like Caspian ) use ruger's pinetree casting, so they are there own source.
Sounds like a great price. I plan on picking one up as soon as they bring it out in a parkerized version. As of late I seem to be drifting away from Poly pistols. Last three pistols where 1911 RIA GI 45, S/A Champion 45 cal.,and just picked up a CZ 75B in a 9mm.
Out the door means after taxes and all fees. It means every cent you pay to walk out the door with the product. I think some people have no clue what OTD means. In my state, a gun priced at $599 would be about $650.54 out the door.
