For good reason; those short 1911 take a hit to reliability.
IF Ruger can put out a RELIABLE 1911 for a price that isn't pants-on-the-fucking-head-retarded, things will become interesting. I probably still wouldn't buy one, however. Though, I'm treating this with the same healthy dose of skepticism I treat any new product to the market.
